sanaha sanaha ahhh don't theeenk it'll ever happen.......

There you have it. It's going to happen sooner that you think.

I listen to almost zero main stream media. I subscribe to feeds from blogs I'm interested in and on line magazines that I like. Using Google widgets I can get head lines from those magazines and just click h elinks that interest me.

I'm appalled at what passes for news from the daily newspaper I read in the morning when I get my coffee.

Bloggers such as BR and guests set the bar very high. They are experts in their field and yet they acknowledge they are searching for answers like everyone else.

They seek a response from their audience and ask for that audience to make an effort to learn and engage with the topics.

Generally they are not attempting to sell something to you.

These are among the key characteristics of good sources of information.

And besides newspapers are inevitably a day late.

As for television...that you don't get paid to have an audiovisual billboard in your lounge is more appalling than the patronizing rubbish you are supposed to watch between the adds.
