Political controversy is something that used to interest me. I've lost interest now because the hyperbole has moved too far beyond facts and simply into ideology and name-calling. There isn't anything to learn. Consider MSNBC as a singularity, repeating a message throughout the day. The host does not matter; The topics remain the same. It only takes minutes to discover the point of view - and the rest is just noise. Fox News and CNN are no better. Cable no longer serves a purpose for news but is just running commentary - commentary that is based on ideology and not facts. Blogs and news sites are no better. Each site portrays itself with exclusives but the talking points quickly become evident. For example, a few minutes on Huffington Post provides all the talking points necessary to understand which side is using which logical fallacy to promote their own agenda. Free thinking - critical thinking - all seem buzzwords rather than a purpose of serving the public need for information. Sadly, nothing exists for someone wanting news. Just give me the facts - and leave out the commentary. Stop showing me emotional pictures above Trayvon Martin- pictures from years ago - and instead just let me read news. Stop the sensationalism. Stop the spin - and just provide facts.
