Give it to me Straight

To the Media: STOP SEASONING MY NEWS. Please and thank you.

Today's daily events did not call for a half cup of your opinion, two and a quarter cups hype, and a tablespoon of misinformation. Give it to me straight: Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How. Don't be so cavalier with your influence of my opinion. Information spreads too rapidly and misinformation spreads even faster.


  1. Though at some level there is an advantage to the way news is presented to us. We'll never escape information being portrayed from at least a skewed perspective, so the key seems to be learning about each issue from multiple source. thus i get 2 complete opposite views on the same story and can divine my opinion from that.

  2. Unfortunately, in today's media landscape we are only going to see sensationalism in the news. More and more we will have to turn to news by the people for the people: blogs, conferences like TED and self-reported news, like the Egyptian Revolution.
