    Wait … what is this “news … paper” of which you speak?

    This is all sad but true.

    He didn’t try PBS or the BBC. The least crappy of the lot.

    Trudeau hits the nail on the head again, as the old proverb says.

    Actually, it is healthier and happier to go on a “news fast” now and then. Very little of the news is actually important: e.g. requires action on our parts, or prepares us to take action.

    Apropos of nothing in particular: I just saw some interesting research. Pessimists, it appears, are better than optimists at predicting outcomes; but optimists are healthier, happier, succeed better, and live longer. Attitude has real-world consequence. Negativity can be a drug which, when used to excess, tears you down.

    When this happened in Bloom County they took a Dandelion Break. Opus is waiting for you Mike.

    I would rather be a pessimist than an optimist because if you.re an optimist and something bad happens, you’re disappointed, but if you’re a pessimistand something bad happens, you can always say “I told you do!”

    Wonderfully timely the 2nd time around, with Bezos buying up the WaPost. Looking forward to September 1st!

    Yep,“off the grid” isn’t as hard as some people think. Turn off the tv, plug the phone in, set the computer to re boot, then GO OUTSIDE!

    oh the light, it burns my eyes…that’s called “The Sun” dear.

    Besides the point he’s making, I love the double entendre in the last frame

    I think editing by exclusion happens everywhere to some extent. I don’t have cable, and I’d never actually watched Al Jazeera until a year or so ago when I was killing time in the Hong Kong airport. I was pleasantly surprised at the depth and apparent balance. Now I look for it on hotel cable television wherever I go, but it’s rare in the US (and outside the US, it isn’t always available in English). Through airport and hotel televisions, I also found that CNN had become worthless, except for Christiane Amanpour.
