1. "Fox Gets Front-Row White House Seat"

    Yeah yeah yeah, I know. Who cares who gets what seat. But you know what, things may have not changed noticeably, but every action has an impact.

    AP has front and center, Fox has AP’s former front row seat and NPR has Fox’s second row seat.

    A lot of people have been saying this reminds them of children bickering over who gets shotgun and kindergarten when everyone had assigned seats. 

    Well of course. Society is not as mature as it so would like to seem which is not good or bad, but a simple (unavoidable) truth.

    The article on NPR is interesting

    "Fox’s upgrade is an acknowledgment of its "length of service and commitment," the association’s board said in a statement."

    Facebook comments are insightful (to some extent).

    Gordon Bond: This issue here isn’t that FOX is right-wing. It’s that they have been presenting opinion-based reports as unbiased news. I’d be against a liberal news group having the seat if they were guilty too.

    The issue here is journalistic credibility…

    Either way, I prefer facts over hearing my own bias opinions again and again.

    But, what qualifies anything as truth?

  2. Obama, Democrats, Republicans, and Humor on the Side

    This made me laugh today.

    Joke originally found here:

    A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

    The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

    "She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be an Obama Democrat."

    "I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

    "Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me."

    The man smiled and responded, “You must be a Republican.”

    "I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"

    "Well," said the man, "you don’t know where you are or where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it’s my fault."
