    Famed cartoonist Bill Watterson debuted the cover art for comics documentary, “Stripped,” on Wednesday, the first cartoon the artist has released publicly since retiring the “Calvin and Hobbes” comic strip in 1995.

    Yup. Same old stuff. No reliable, objective press.

    The weather is King of local t.v. news in Tulsa. I’m trying to find out how the reporter is chosen to stand out in the snow and cold just to report that it’s cold and snowing.

    More proof of Mr. Watterson being ahead of his time as well as being a genius.

    JUST READ a painfully insightful piece on diversions as news in a terrific magazine called The Week… the piece was appeared last week… this could have been its illustration

    Well, you can teach yourself a PhD on any chosen subject and Congress will vote the way they want anyway. Be assured it will be in their interest too.

    I think it’s more likely that they’ve been grossly inaccurate all along, but rarely got caught until the Internet. I’ve never seen a local news story on an event I knew about that wasn’t wrong in at least one significant detail.

    But the biggest distortion has always been what the news leaves out. JFK was a sexual predator, but that was always covered up. Nor did I see any coverage of Ted Kennedy’s “waitress sandwich” until about 15 years later.

    It wouldn’t sell if we didn’t buy it. The problem with the media is that it gives us exactly what we want!

    I know it’s bad form to correct someone on the Internet, but it has been a problem much longer than just since WWII. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellow_journalism#Origins:Pulitzer_vs.Hearst

    Yes, 30 years ago was the beginning of “the bubble headed bleach blonde goes on at five. She’ll tell you about the plane crash with a gleam in her eye…” No more news just Dirty Laundry, ratings are more important that a truly informed public,…the intention of the newscast, in the first place. There used to be a code of honor among journalists. The birth of the 24 hour “news” cast destroyed that code. Now, I have 15,000 + news sources at my fingertips and don’t need the tv fake news, owned by corporations with their own agendas, anymore.

    Very topical: I am watching the latest “trial of the century.” There was a 15-minute, in-depth, exclusive interview with the boy who delivers the newspaper to the defense attorney’s mother-in-law.

    In other news, some things are going on in Syria, Ukraine, Crimea – film at 11.

    My, Calvin has a very good vocabulary for a six year old! And yet he does poorly in school. Quite the paradox.

    this morning’s main attractions were news in the Ukraine and a teenager in Jersey suing her parents. Guess which had the most air time. :(

    @orinoco womblethe correct form is two words: sound biteand was created before computers were in every household.

    Sound bite

    Meaning

    A short and easily remembered line, intended by the speaker to be suitable for media repetition.Origin

    This originated in US media circles in the 1980s. The first known printed citations come from that period; for example, The Washington Post, June 1980:

    “Remember that any editor watching needs a concise, 30-second sound bite. Anything more than that, you’re losing them.”

    Time, June 1983:

    “TV’s formula these days is perhaps 100 words from the reporter, and a ‘sound bite’ of 15 or 20 words from the speaker.”

    OK, this is silly. Please cite a reference to your word, other than the proper name of a few companies. Lack of proof should put this to rest. I too, recall the initial usage of the term in early days. You can use sound bytes, sound-bytes, or soundbytes as your test cases. I will admit to a mistake; in an earlier comment, I spelled it as one word. It is actually “sound bite”, or possibly hyphenated. There, that’s the final word on the subject….. right?
