For awhile now I have been own a few discussion forums and of course, a bit of a disagreement ensues, but that is why they are called discussion forums and not something else. One of the biggest convos I have had is the media and its embracing fluff instead of news. You know Britney, Ana Nicole, yada yada. Well, you know, I think I have an answer. Most of the Us major media is owned by this corp. or that and in as such it must make a profit. So the news section is incorporated into the entertainment division of these corps. And in that lies the prob–they are approaching news from an entertainment perspective instead of an informative perspective. Because of this we get hour upon hour, of fluff, not quality news. News is suppose to inform not entertain.


The Professor’s Classroom

Good Morning class. Take your seats and grab a pencil and paper–gonna be a test.

On the map locate the following countries:

Turkey/Iraq/Kuwait/Saudi Arabia/Afghanistan/Pakistan/Uzbekistan/Kyrygzistan/Persian Gulf

Now in red pencilo locate Iran.

What is the point? Take a look at Iran and then the countries listed. Does Iran look surrounded? The list of countries are countries with a military presence and yes, they are surrounded. If I were Iran I would be paranoid also.
