Perhaps we should agree that only a few people should report the news and accept that what they say is holy writ?
I hear you on some inadequacies of the bringing the news online and propagated by the masses, but the whole point is to talk about it.
Consider that ten years ago, many people couldn't even get news on the internet and as a result, they had to accept the force feeding that was
communicated via television, newspaper, etc.
Now we can discuss it and even present the news for others who may not have had access to a site.
As for the 'blog' news sources...some of those are gold. The mainstream media isn't reporting the declassified Pentagon documents, not that many
people are aware of Bush's little Telecom immunity crap and I would be surprised if the average American was aware that Bush has been found guilty by
a California District Judge regarding past wiretapping...he is now a felon in the eyes of the law.
All verifiable and trustworthy assertions that CNN isn't reporting.
Perhaps you should endeavour to be the change that you seek?
Author a few threads and post a few polite requests in an under commented submission for more of an analysis.
Because the whole point of Breaking Alternative News is to discuss the news that isn't being reported by the mainstream...(and some that are...
Seriously...it's more productive to actually go in there and become an example for what you would like to see. Moderation is a difficult thing and
an under commented submission may reach two and a half pages before myself or another Mod wakes up in the morning.
Sorry for the Rant...
