“The truth is that the news, if you’re really paying attention, is complex and boring. I often set a goal for myself that I’m only going to read the news in the news paper and to stay away from Internet news. Because the stuff that goes up on the sites is immediate, brash and badly reported. They just scoop it and slop it and chuck it. The news paper has limited space. And they have until morning to get it to you. So there’s more thought put into it. Internet news is heroin. Newspaper news is nutrition. That’s MY view. Don’t get all mad. I’m just sharing. I’m sure there are other avenues to the truth that are web based. When I walk into the coffee places where they are literally using lab equipment and glass beakers to make the perfect coffee, I get the sense that the young people sitting at the tables are reading blogs and sites that are quiet and thoughtful. My daughter reads a cocktail of blogs on her favorite subjects, knowing they each have a bias, and averages them out to find her truth.”
