Maybe that fad is over Undecided

I think becoming a fad is what spoiled its effectiveness. It's like forming up to protest something is step one, and deciding what today's protest will be against is step two. It's just a thing that people who want to define themselves as intellectuals do, and the crying wolf effect has indeed come into play. Now when people say they're going on a hunger strike or something I'm just like neat, how original. Have fun.

Here's what I don't get. I just watched the news conference, and some of the following news reporting recap...

How can the news media say the police or FBI confirmed things they actually didn't confirm and said they were still investigating?


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

It's hard to monetize "we don't know". Much easier to generate viewership when it sounds like you have the scoop on everyone else, including the cops.

Just saw on CNN that this terrorist ass wipe had been communicating with other known international terrorists. He spent a month in the middle East very recently. His neighbors had observed suspicious behavior like many packages being delivered and several men working in the garage late at night. They didn't want to report it to authorities because they didn't want to be labeled "racist."

This is why I don't watch the news anymore. I don't want to hear what they think happened, according to their "sources" who might be right, wrong, pulling shit from their ass or making lucky guesses. I want to know what actually happened, what we can prove and let the investigation continue.

You can still pull useful information from even the most blatantly dishonest sources. And this isn't just in regards to news, but people in general. Nothing should ever be considered true just because someone said it. Anything you hear is merely a piece of a puzzle. You may never complete that puzzle, but more often than not It's still all you've got to work with.

I understand that, but it should be corroborated by other sources (not by Bob and his friend Jim, who just agrees with whatever Bob says) and then confirmed by police, FBI, or whatever angency in the position to confirm it.

Until then, what they shouldn't be just put out there for public consumption unless they make it clear it's their opinion.

If all they're going to do is sit around, chat and speculate the motive, they should really move on to other news -- or continue to recap what they actually do know and leave the investigation to....I don't know, the people doing it?

I'm just annoyed and cranky.
