On my way home from the farm with earthling2 driving, so punching this out on my smarty phone.
One thing I like about being in a rural location is there is no TV and scattered radio. I lived without radio and TV for 18 years down in SoCal, so this is not new.
The news stations are all the same now anyway. They take their commercial breaks at the same time. The lead stories are all the same, even using the same verbiage and whole sentences sometimes.
Geeze, it's almost like it's all coming from the same source.
Lately I've noticed commercial pitches disguised as news.
So it's getting to the point where in a half-hour segment, there is only about 8 minutes of actual slanted news, including weather and traffic, and the rest is trying to separate you from your money.
No wonder I'm here getting my news.
So what's going on?
It's an open thread.
