news

If an event happens - say systematic torture - and no news outlet reports it, did it happen?

From the RadioOrNot website:

There is no more news. There’s infotainment and speculation and opinion and lots of made-up shit all masquerading as “news,” but make no mistake, the news has been canceled.

Today’s “news” casts on TV are anything but the objective, fact-based reports on the day’s events they used to be. A Washington Post obituary of “60 Minutes” Creator Don Hewittgets to the reason that the actual news can no longer be found on your television set:

GottaLaff is a regular contributor to the site and has been for several years.

Here's the podcast:

Why GottaLaff's posts are MIA

MIA

NOTE TO READERS: I cannot access WordPress for some reason, so my posting will be spotty at best. Other than that major and frustrating glitch, I'll be MIA today because I must be at my dad's to meet with hospice medical workers who will be checking in on him from time to time, a huge relief and a service completely covered by Medicare. 

This is just one more reason why Medicare is so appreciated and so valuable. 

To those who are not familiar with what's going on, my 93-year-old father has been on a very slow decline since he suffered a series of tiny strokes a couple of years ago. He's not in any imminent danger, but we felt it was better to give him all the care we can before his health deteriorates any more, before he is beyond help. I highly recommend this to anyone in our position. These people are the closest thing to angels I can imagine. 

Thank you to @AliKat747 for her guidance and information on how hospice care isn't only for those at death's door, but is there to make patients more comfortable well before that moment comes.

Both GottaLaff and myself are having health issues today that will need to be followed up by doctor visits tomorrow, so we ask for your patience if posting is light. We'll be back to our usual snarky posting soon. Thank you.

Housekeeping Note

Gottalaff is having some problems with her computer/connection, so this afternoon will be scattered. I'm up to my eyebrows with other work, and the holiday nature of the weekend will mean (probably) little news.
