You ever post a thread and right away someone responds "This has been posted before."...well not exactly. You know how boring it would be if in our
life there was only one news outlet. I myself like variety, the same variety of news we have today. You don't like CNN you pick Fox and if youre
intelegent enough, and you know both are bad you pick an alternet source of news.
So what is wrong with someone putting there own spin on a topic or news story. I like to see many view points expressed. Everyone has there favorite
news source. So why not examine another view point to see if you get new ideas on a topic.
When a major news story breaks I choose more than one outlet for my news to get the whole story. It seems like broadcasters only give you a piece of
the story so you go to a different outlet to get the rest of the puzzle.
I especially find a major difference between American and Canadian news broadcasts.
For me Its about the freedom of expression and the freedom of choice. Some people like a good story and some people are not good story tellers. So the
freedom of choice should be there for you to choose the best source for you. Your opinion on who tells the story best and your choice to choose the
ATS is a big place and its not always easy to find duplicate threads and the different combinations of search phrases to use to find it, and then
searching through 10's or 100's of pages to find if someone else has written the story. So next time maybe instead of typing thread already posted you
might stop and think I'm glad there is freedom of choice and expression for me to choose. Free speech for all. Thank you ATS members for making me
feel like the family even with the sibling rivalry.
Take care all !!
