OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI just finished reading an article by Matt Taibbi in Rolling stone where he talks about how unbiased the American news has become. He goes on to talk about how it’s impossible to get both sides from any one source. I hate to tell you Matt but the people that I grew up with have thought that way since the 60’s. We would read several different newspapers and news magazines as well as listen to and watch different news channels. Some of this might have come about because of the Kennedy assassination and the rumors of cover up. Then of course Nixon didn’t help either. I think news outlets have gone in this direction because people are too lazy to look for the truth. They would rather put their faith in a face or a voice. Now I hear young people are doing what we did and they have an even greater source for info the internet. Maybe now with the obvious siding of the news media with one party or the other people will again start thinking for themselves. I know that a simplistic and novel thing to say but it would be great if they did. If we could force politicians and news media from using the art of deception and get reporters back to investigating and writing the truth maybe we wouldn’t have some of the problems we’re having in this country now. But what do I know I’m just a cat. This is Flounder your next President saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
