musings on the mainstream "press corps" and the american discourse
HBO is showing an interesting documentary about Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill, produced and directed by Jonathan Alter (and others). It says the greatest problem in the decline of print journalism has been the lack of local coverage of state and local government.
That fits with what I notice. Localpapers are either gone or limping along with obituaries and Rotary Club meetings and many are owned by outside corporate entities. The local TV news stations start off with weather, prior to the actual weather, then spend most of their news time on crimes or “human-interest” stories. Very little reporting of the shenanigans being pulled by the legislature. Not to mention the bullshit forced content the anchors at the local Sinclair station are forced to read, or the Boris Epshteyn swill. Of course, the national network news on ABC, NBC, CBS aren’t much better covering real stories. They led several days last week with vast coverage of the Smollett non-story, and they always over-dramatize and spend way too much time on “weather”: “50 Million People At Risk of...thunderstorms” or “Midwest faces Massive Winter Storm...in the middle of winter” etc. I don’t recall Cronkite worrying about being a meteorologist.
Elizabeth Warren is saying that reliance on small contributions will involve more people in the issues. This is only true if there is some concern that those small contributions actually come from individuals and are not a way of laundering money from sources such as Russia (via the NRA, or the liberal equivalent). This is how Bernie was propped up and aimed at Hillary by Russia, through the unmonitored infusion of hundreds of thousands of dollars into his campaign via small contributions, which he was so proud to receive. There is no virtue to such small contributions by a campaign that doesn't care where the money comes from. Warren may be repeating that mistake, which will make her as much a pawn as Bernie and Jill Stein were. I hate to see her be so foolish.
It's not like Elizabeth Warren to grossly miscalculate.

Hi everybody. I recently saw a testimony about Chief Dr Lucky in a blog I visit for relationship and dating counseling problems because i had been having serious issues with my boyfriend and we had been dating for six months, he just suddenly changed, he wasn't returning my calls,he started cheating,he was hurting me in many ways i never thought possible and I just thought I should try it*maybe out of desperation of some sort*..and I contacted Chief Dr Lucky ..At first everything felt dreamy and unbelievable, his consultations and solution was a little bit easy and strange and I was scared a little cause I heard read and heard lots of stories of fake spell casters,scams and i never really believed in magic..I played along with a little hope and and faith and I sent some few stuffs after everything and it worked like a miracle,everything went to a while new direction,it was and is amazing...I guess it was all good faith that made me read That particular post that faithful day..I hope he could help other people too like he did me...I did a little and I got everything I wanted and wished for*my husband,my family and my life back.

This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced. I visited here online on the 17 June and i saw a marvelous testimony of Tracie Adana from United States on the forum about the good works DR.tunde I never believed it, because have never heard anything about such miracle before. No body would have been able to convince me about it not until DR.tunde did a marvelous work for me that restored my marriage of 4 years by getting back my husband back i just as i read on the internet. I'm Carolina peter I was truly shocked when my husband knelt down pleading for forgiveness to accept him back. I am really short of words to use to show my appreciation to DR.tunde For his a God sent to me and my entire family for divine restoration of my marriage.
