Great post Combat Babe! When you write “If you watch the news, local or national, the “talking heads” are using cues given to them by the station on how they should deliver a story; subtle nod here, barely noticeable grimace there, head tilt here, inflections and tones of their voice.” it tells that the anchors are not giving the information correctly because they are being told what to say. You can see this with Fox News and MSNBC. Both Fox News and MSNBC are reaching to certain audiences and are skewing the story so that the audience will listen more and not to change the channel. Take a look at my skew in the news blog and see the difference between MSNBC and Fox News. Once again great post!

Well as I do not watch, read or notice the news, I haven’t been thinking about any topic in the news. Do not mistake this for not thinking about the events that are happening in these times. Sandy’s havoc on the people and the devastation she’s caused is always on my mind. I live in Florida so we are usually well prepared for hurricanes as the people up there can be more prepared for snow storms (which would scare the pants off of me and I do believe you need pants in a snow storm). Everyone affected by this Sandy is in my heart.
