I was a little surprised by great response to my ‘Who’s Running The Country’ podcast. Lots of positive comments made me realize how unusual it is for commentators these days to break the news cycle. I talk about that in News Loop-Greater Insights-Enjoy Life-Podcast 763.
Mainstream Media In A Playback Loop
How does media work today? Lurid Clickbait Headlines. Saying the same thing again and again. Predicting the future.
Telling Us What’s Going To Happen
Most noteworthy? It’s like they’re all talking to each other and not the audience. Moreover the obsession with telling us “what’s going to happen” gets in the way of the facts.
I have a ‘system’ to deal with this kind of media. Never watch TV News. Never watch the cable channels. Don’t listen to talk radio. I believe when we read we understand more.
Consequently I feel insulated from nonsense. Furthermore my moorings aren’t coming loose from the constant hot air about protests and speechifying. Find out how and why in News Loop-Greater Insights-Enjoy Life-Podcast 763.
Magpies On The Line
Finally whether a confirmation fight effects democrats or republicans negatively depends on who votes. We will find out in less than a month. Is it possible to wait a mere thirty days or so? Or is it necessary for the magpies to interrupt whatever we’re doing to sell their story line?
Above all it’s about building a business for me. How I spend my time. Relationships and Organic Work. These are the things most important to me right now. What’s really going on in our society?
In conclusion it’s the individual interactions and the wide scope of our lives that have the most impact. Do we really want to waste that time obsessed with what a bunch of politicians do?
