FIVE SCENARIOS FOR A SKEPTICAL NEWS VIEWER

 

The first scenario:

Your next door neighbor shoots your dog. Everybody knows he did it. Your son is devastated, feeling intense grief and anger. You tell him you'll make sure justice is done. Then this miscreant moves to another neighborhood. Do you tell your son he should forget about this horrible event because the man is gone? Would you expect your son to accept the killer of his dog not suffering deserved punishment and just 'move forward' with his life?

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but...

Isn't there a man in Crawford, Texas who, by lying to the American people, caused the death of thousands of our soldiers and more than a hundred thousand Iraqis? The loved ones of these victims deserve justice. A simple "life goes on' message from our news media is extremely insulting. How will history record the total absence of accountability by George W. Bush and his administration?

As it looks now, the 'mainstream' news outlets will be seen as being irresponsible, pursuing rating and circulation numbers instead of operating for the good of the country.

The second scenario:

Your car needs repair. It runs, but it has problems that need to be addressed. The mechanic you take it to really screws it up. The car is now just a three-ton stationary object. While a second mechanic is working on it, fixing what the first mechanic broke, the first mechanic comes by to criticize his work. Do you allow this incompetent a voice in how to fix the vehicle? Would his perceptions and opinions have any validity?
