So bascially the question is "WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ON THE WAY NEWS IS SPREAD NOWADAYS?"

Like is it effective enough? Do we get enough details? Do you even care about news now? Anything that you think of will do! :D
Oh and, do you think that getting news by internet is good, or do we take advantage of it??

News gets exagerated so dont believe it all, as most of its bull shit.
and you must be bored

Pocky

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

anyways back on topic. I hate watching the news. Its always bad news that they report. Or depressing news. I prefer reading it online. That way i can choose what to watch and read. The news on tv are usually biased anyway. >__>

Funny you should mention;

Dan Rather is quoted here that the official news services are bunk;

http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Rather_Moyers_address_crisis_of_journalism_0608.html

quote;
"America's biggest, most important news organizations have, over the past 25 years, fallen prey to merger after merger, acquisition after acquisition... to the point where they are, now, tiny parts of immeasurably larger corporate entities — entities whose primary business often has nothing to do with news," Rather said.

naturally the news services will never admit this. you had to read it here to learn about it, on the world wide web, or www.

It's been a while since I've actually watched it. Almost always rapist reports and such :O And recently it's been about crane accidents and investigating cranes ._. But, I always just pop in for the weather and even then it's just a glance at tomorrow's weather.

One thing about journalism you should remember: Bad news sells.

No point in talking about the good stuff when people will just bob their heads in dumb recognition. The news captures its audience by highlighting the bad scoops, the issues, the nitty-gritty, and sometimes blowing up seemingly trivial details into unsightly atrocities.


That's the news for you. Not really biased (at least not all the time), but SERIOUSLY over-the-top conditioned to make it a marketable product.

Lets not forget that you'll care more about news that one person in a local area died, than 1000 people in *random distant place*

I often have to remind myself to doubt what I read.

To answer your last question, I love Pocky and chocolate is the only flavor for me.

and one more thing, do you like pocky sticks? if so what flavor? (don't ask y i added that! )


I love Pocky sticks!!!!!! i've only had strawberry and chocolate flavoured ones. i don't know if there's more.
i like the chocolate ones the best but strawberry is good too.

on the news topic

i hate how it's on tv lol cause whenever i try to tell my dad something the weather comes on and he tells me to wait until it's over. i don't even care about knowing what the weather is so it's annoying having to wait.

lol you won't learn your lesson in procrastinating...once a procrastinator always a procrastinator


jk well ne way I think the news nowadays only exists for entertainment purposes. If you look at fox news, you'll notice theres nothing there worth mentioning (they did some news reports on an anime convention and maplestory once )
