I have been to several areas of the site.
For example in the aviation area we are hot on the trail of a super secret bomber project.
I do agree lots are here just for the politics right now but i bet the majority were here for another reason first.
Most off us realize that what we are participating here is blogging. We acknowledge that our words and comments are not news in any way.
This is the point that people are are missing when they use bloggers or any opinion based TV commentary as a source.
Opinions are not news. News is at its core an action of some sort that occurred in the world.
I am going to make up some titles as an examples.
I am not trying to create fake news I am just providing examples.
Two cars collide on Highway 2, 3 people killed.
Liberal government delays buying fancy jets to do analysis of life time costs.
The British government announce's that petition's regarding the referentum are complete and valid.
The house will confirm referentum date in session next Wednesday.
Now here are title's that could be bloggers or opinion based news or an editorial in the newspaper.
3 more deaths on Highway 2. Road must change.
Liberal government delays protecting Canadian borders. The fancy jets are needed soon.
It's okay if the Irish want to split but we must keep Scotland.
If you compare the last two presidents you can see that one understands the difference and the other doesn't. This difference is appearant in the
phrasing of their speeches.
One president will identify a set of facts and then say some thing like:
I feel the the nation should go in this direction (opinion)
My advisors and I have concluded that we must go to chaos-astan* and protect their democratic government from rebels. *false country name.
Another president says
There are many ways to be wiretapped. I must have been wiretapped (opinion).
I will force Mexico to pay for the wall by charging tariffs.
( a statement of intentions worth reporting because of the job title held but not worth being above the fold of the newspaper.)
An action that would merit being above the fold is:
President directs Congress to enact trades tariffs on Mexico.
I hope this clarifies things for people. It's pretty academic really.
