Fictional Will McAvoy speaks more truth than real Jeff Zucker

I could say more, and probably will, but for now, Will McAvoy speaks for me. Read the tweets starting from the bottom.

Go read Chez Pazienza’s piece here. And keep chatting.

    CNN has 2 stations in US and provides the Least of News. MSNBC devotes most of it’s time to Opinions and politics. Fox does propaganda. BBC is intermittently on in Most of US markets.

    With more ways to get information, most are left behind from information. Internet is great. But when truth is harder to get. Those delivering the news need to be more dedicated to Facts, accuracy and deep Content driven analysis.

    In a democracy, a factually based Independent News Media is essential for Our survival.

      I’ve been watching tweety attacking Christie (seems this will continue on MSNBC) – news flash said there may be more deaths as some cars are still under the semis

      I really hate that in my world the trucking lobby won over the rail lobby (government owned is the rail) – and most transportation is now via road. Whatever is in these enormous trucks should be carried by rail – trucks may be needed for local distribution – but I found the photo of that crash obscene – given the number of trucks involved.

    Excellent tweets, LL. Thanks for posting them. I’ve seen people use a site called Storify to put media together. You might be able to get them arranged in top down order that way at least.


    I didn’t realize POTUS was speaking to the conference of mayors. That’s a very good audience for him. They are on the ground helping their people and aware of what is needed. I read an article about the conference and it sounds like the mayors get along much better then. I would love to hear the questions they have for him and his answers as well as the speech. Smith is a GOP mayor and president of the group. They are very upbeat about the economy.

    Watched tweety discussion on Huckabee (I love that spell check prefers Huckleberry) – I know it’s obvious – and there for all to see – but GOP pundits (MJ the top example) and GOP guests CANNOT allow the other person to speak. They overtalk ALL the time – whereas the democrats allow the others to speak and then attempt to give their point of view.

    This is where the media is truly shown as carrying water for the GOP. They should be turning off the mike of the person who should be listening but they enable the conduct – even if they don’t agree with it.

    This is wonderful news!

    ….National Council of La Raza and Mi Familia Vota Education Fund on Thursday launched a new campaign to register more than 250,000 voters. Traditionally voter registration drives get going in the spring and summer before the election. By starting in January, the groups hope to top their 2012 campaign of more than 180,000 registered voters….

    ….De Castro said the campaign will focus on those adults who have yet to register, as well as the estimated 50,000 Latino citizens who turn 18 each month. NCLR and the union-backed Mi Familia plan to start their campaign with millions of mailers in Colorado, Nevada, Arizona and Texas, adding in in Florida and California in the spring….

    I’ve mentioned before that I’m not Catholic, but Pope Francis seems to have a good head on his shoulders.

    I know that there’s disgruntlement among Catholics because the Pope hasn’t embraced birth control and women’s issues (such as women priests) but these things take time, much like the issue of priest celebacy.

      Women have been waiting a long time since they thought the church was going to help them in the 1960s – I understand their disgruntlement – will the church ever end the stupid in regard to birth control.

      I also find it amazing that ONE man has so much power over female reproduction – we attack those in the GOP who want that power.

      I think Pope Francis and Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are gifts from GOD.

        I think they all arrived “on scene” just when they were needed! Total gifts from God. We shouldn’t waste them, in my opinion. We should listen and learn, because isn’t it all about our progressing as a human race?

          Jojo and jacquelineoboomer, I concur. I often find myself speaking out aloud to that I must not waste the time of the Giftor for these beautiful gifts. I believe that the measure of their gifts will be used by them as carefully and as lovingly as God’s new mercies are each day. I am a student who has vowed to be a good listener and an appreciative learner to help our bothers and sisters progress in a manner that is worthy of the full capacity that God has given each of them to be their best.HZ

    I’m watching Rachael online – should I be concerned that the US attorney inquiry is trying undermine the legislative inquiry – is this just me thinking Christie might still have friends in the US attorney’s office? Am I paranoid.

    I have always found it bad governance that people with money can overcome all and any immigration issues in ANY country in the world. As soon as someone has money to “start a business” or whatever they claim – they seem to be able to gain permanent residency with no worries. A couple of today’s events highlight this issue – which certainly happens in my country – as well as many others.

    Wow Rachel gets some interesting stories – I had forgotten how good she can be – when she stops attacking the Obama administration. No wonder her ratings are heading upwards – hope she realizes this.
