Watching television is not going to help us right now.

Let's make one thing clear: I don't watch the news. It's depressing. I'm not saying that news reports should all be about puppies and kitties, but it's unnerving how reporters can talk about murder or the new fear while smiling. I typically get informed by searching thru different news sites on the web. I figure that if I read five reports on the same story, that I will be able to make my own opinion. Fox news , 'a central hub of the conservative movement's well-oiled media machine', reminds me of the TV station in V for Vendetta. Last night Bill Clinton was interviewed by Chris Wallace about his global agenda. It got off-topic when Chris mentions e-mails he received from viewers when they heard that Clinton would be on his show. They wanted to know why Clinton didn't do anything about Osama Bin Laden during his presidency. Notice the body language, notice how Clinton still keeps the atmosphere light, notice how Clinton also doesn't just brush off the question, but gives an informed answer. One thing that I always admire for any politician or celebrity is when they can answer a question. Not just give a flippant answer or throw out an accusation. In any interview of Clinton that I have seen, he has always given an informed answer. I think I might watch these videos again and take notes to catch the names of the books being thrown around. Giles and his secret vice.

How nice to be reminded that, in fairly recent history, the supposedly "most powerful in the world" was able to construct complex sentences and actually give substantial answers to simple questions.
