It has nothing to do with the emails themselves, and everything to do with people who are writing about it.


With all due respect, please correct me if I'm wrong but-

You just openly said that you're ignoring the issue because you don't like the people that are writing about it. So, that means if someone you DO like started covering it, then you'd pay attention?

The problem with that is, you don't get balanced information. The issue at hand is being covered {or not covered} by certain outlets because of what's beginning to look like an honest to goodness bias- a bias that you're willingly buying into.




Nonono. Reading that wrong.

It's the way the stuff currently written is, well, written. It has nothing to do with actual source of articles. Like let's put it in terms of "mainstream" media. I will read/watch stuff on Fox news if it isn't written by someone who wears tinfoil hats. It's not like I am waiting for it to be on other news stations and then I will be like "OH LOOK IT'S ON CNN? Must watch!"
Que pasa?

Aside from even the climategate not having much coverage.........how about the health care issue being debated about and 30,000 more troops being sent to Iraq. We see these sort of issues that effect and make a major difference for everyone put off in smaller captions below what others seem to view as major and important headlines. Like reb said in one the previus posts. My idea was not to say that the media cares only about the personal ordeals of celebs as opposed to major issues. Just the fact that is Tiger Woods screwing other women aside from his wife really going to effect everyone else. NO its not. So to make a long story short who gives a crap about what celebs are doing with their personal lives. Lets get the inordinate amounts of trival bs that dosent matter off of major headlines and focus on something that has a more long term effect and intrinsic value.

I pretty much figured that the "couple" that party crashed the Obama dinner was sent by the white house to focus attention away from climategate, and healthcare...

 
Especially when the white house wouldn't send their person to congress when requested... Why hide for something like this unless it was
 
wag the dog
 
 
...
 
 
Should have just waited for Tigergate...
