Marc, I quite agree with you.... I am in a quite polemic mood, so here we go with my crab english: Sitting on the WWW, all of a sudden I find myselfe terribly interested in the structure of the army in Pakistan, because Musharaf is doing this and that, what could mean and so on.... An than I wake up and think: I just did spend 20 minutes of my livetime reading a text about the structure of the Army in Pakistan? Am I stupid? Beeing born and bread in the GDR, I actually do not BELIEVE in any news, there is a very deep suspicion. What not means, that the news dont tell anything. They always have this mixture of interests and information. (Entertainment is a kind of interest of course, as we know.)
I dont think that can be changed, and I am quite happy about it. This mixture can be called: story telling. And if you tell a story in a good way, it is better than a story which might be at the end nearer to what actually happened- told in a bad way.
(((I know I get deleted in that context here for this kind of opinion.(((-: )))

No, to be honest: The mountain of information helps of course to get a wider picture, but this wider picture is as relative as the smaller one was before. I am quite nihilistic about it, what counts is the energy to form the picture and to understand.
The web is in a way as dusty as librarys are. If you sepnt more than 5 hours a day on the web, you should think again. I too drink a bit to much.

Concerning the crude video from Reuters: I agree with the comment, that it has been editied anyway, and would add: Its quite fashionable at the moment as structure. I just say REALITY TV.
The WORST Thing in CNN is this footage they are 'just' showing with the subtitle: NO COMMENT.

My comment to long alreaedy, I just stop 8-)

But: Coulld PLEASE tell me somebody what TROLLING is? makes me really curious, as it is a very funny word for me as german, as TROLLS are kinda dwarfs, quite simila to SCHRATS....

8-) Schrat
