Al Jazeera outdoes all other cable news channels

Al Jazeera outdoes all other cable news channels 
in straight news coverage, 
with fewer talking heads and 
much more reporting.

The production on the other 
cable news channels is 
a predictable formula which renders reporting 
secondary by apparent intent.



The channels serve interests 
that might not benefit from honest 
investigative reporting
or an informed electorate.

We do not care about the emotional impact 
of events on talking heads.
We care to know what is happening
to the extent that we can determine 
for ourselves what to do.

Obscurantism and personality
won't work anymore.

The problem with natural gas is that it deludes us into thinking the fossil fuel problem is solved. All it does is delay the agony of the end of oil. Which comes first, the actual running out of the sticky stuff, or the cataclysms of prodigal greenhouse gas emissions and resultant warming?

We will either learn to think long-term or we will be the fools upon the sinking ship of two thousand years of bad values
and mindless delusion.

Ted Cruz does harm. Harm is evil. Ted Cruz is evil.

There was nothing in the early '50s that approaches Ted Cruz. He is the product of a media collapse and public apathy, And his own evil.



PS: Ted Cruz is not alone as we all do harm. It's just that the scale of his is more breathtaking.
