The Friday Fives

1. What is your preferred trusted news source? Lately it is Google news, which is really just a collection of all the news sources on the web. And the UK Guardian. I really don't read newspapers anymore. For television, I am keen on CNN headline news as background noise whilst running around the house. 2. What is a news source that you will never trust? Fox news. They have a bad reputation for being biased and dumbing down the facts. It is so true. Watch them a bit and you will see what I mean. They definitely are driven to tell their side of things. 3. What is the news topic during the last calendar year that you feel got the worst coverage? Well, most news, especially with the television news cycle that it seems everyone else must keep up with, everything get little to naught in coverage. However, that being said, I would say news out of Africa and Asia gets little coverage. Driving home from work late at night I will often tune in BBC World News on NPR. I am always amazed at how deep and rich their news reports are and the vastness of their scope - Africa, Asia, cricket, they all get equal play. 4. What news item do you feel got too much coverage in the last calendar year? Brad, Jennifer and Angelie. Yawn. Who cares. 5. If you had complete control of your favored news source(s) (answer to question 1), what would you do with it that is not already being done? Open up new bureaus once again in areas where there is a dirth of coverage, in order to help give Americans a better view of the world that exists outside its navel gazing borders.
