57. You just highlighted how the media makes a difference

I don't have cable per se (now box or dish), just access to certain packages (HBO, NBA League Pass. so I never watch CNN, Fox, or televised news anymore except for Frontline on PBS time-to-time or happen to access local programing when the local news is on.

My access to news is DU, searches, links, headlines, etc. See, I have no idea that anyone is outraged, I'm frankly surprised a detail such as not being at rally is being widely reported. I had no idea he was or wasn't at a rally, something like that never even concerned me to even think about. Of all the things going on all over, why would I or anyone focus on that?

I have a feeling most of us are the same way and I doubt there is any real outrage, maybe a few people over at France would have liked to have his presence which they felt was important but I doubt they are outraged, but when you access the 24/7 news -- news that they treat are important, debates on the right or wrong thing on the given issue, and also if not more important, what they are not airing.

You know about it but you can't notice it when you don't watch the 24/7 news, it is amazing when concerns & narratives are coming out of the blue then I start checking it out -- 24/7 news was the source.
