Artificial Facts Я DePRESSing

And the story's always f---ed by the time it hits
~ M.I.A. 'I'm a Singer (Haters)'


M.I.A. has broken down the New York Times

Keeping in mind what recently happened between M.I.A. and the New York Times, as well as Helen Thomas' fall from grace, reporters should strive for responsibility and fairness. Stories like this cast reporters and news organizations in a very negative light. Remember, there are two sides to every story. Think of a balanced scale. This is why I read blogs, and why I watch BBC, NBC and CBS evening newscasts every day. Each network presents the news as a different ray of light shining through the prism we know as "broadcast journalism."

The Mainstream Media is apparently at it again, making "adjustments" to news photography. Think what "they" may be doing already in print! Some bloggers believe TV is not much better! This is why blogs will never die! Neither will America's fascination with sex!

  1. Nothing is as it is, if you believe the MSM. Thanks for visiting Maggie's Notebook, Dave.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
