The following is not really a rant, its what I grew up terming bishing and moaning. Even though what I'm typing about could go in other threads I
think I prefer to keep my whining here in the rant section.
Don't laugh. I'm trying to crochet. I said don't laugh! While I'm crocheting I like to put on documentaries and old movies so my attention can
stay on my lap, not the television. One thing I've noticed is I have a preference to be educated on history, science or theological themes. Yes, I
know I'm boring. Keep in mind my love of reading so I do get plenty of fantasy time in.
My irritation comes when I notice documentaries that are either biased or definitely not for someone without a basic understanding of the topic. I
noticed this from my kids asking questions. The amount of elaboration that is required was causing me to need to pause. I am forgetful and I enjoy
different perspectives on the same topic. So, i actually just pick a topic and just keep pressimg play. Seriously I'm just trying to finish
crocheting something! The videos that I am seeing with the whole picture on YouTube are from individuals. Even documentary sites or streaming sites
are mostly incomplete information whether its due to editing or not.
I understand bias due to funding, or opinion but this is the one the prompted me to type. Why can't the three Abrahamic religions be treated equally
in a documentary!? I'm not going to name names but, there's one of the three that doesn't get the same air time which causes me to have to pause
and answer questions!
Has anyone else noticed that the information that used to be included under Special Features just isn't available while streaming? Many times this
had relevant information to a topic that just wasn't on theme to the documentary. I want that information back! This is seriously making me want to
just read a book instead.
