I have two points to address:
the term you used was 'Main Street Media'...
which others call MSM or even Feign Stream Media...
? What's with that ?
Main-Street is the term for 'close-to-the-population'...
not the Ivory Tower class of overpaid 'Faces' that beguile us with
what they call NEWS...i.e. info-tainment
... I have not seen a network talk about legislation up for votes, which can have a direct impact on our lives, except the few controversial
legislations of the FISA, TARP, and Stimulus bills, yet other equally important legislation is not brought to the American public's awareness.
Has anyone been remotely aware that the government passed legislation that in 2012 the ~incandescent light~ will no longer be used in the USA...
talk about life altering legislation...several big mega-corps will need o retool to produce LED bulbs, or continue the declining sales of the CFL
(compact fluorescent lights -that have minute ammounts of mercury in them)
the compact fluorescents are now around $2.50 ea.
the LED bundle of bulbs cost around $50. ea
whereas a 40 wt light-bulb still costs around 4 bits ( .40 cents)
with the jobless ranks growing and wage deflation/ asset deflation underway...no body can afford personal lighting in our 2012 future,
unless your a politician or MBA /financial specialist
thanks, i'll go back and re-read the parts i skipped over...
