me to start posting again? [Feb. 10th, 2006|02:36 pm]
Joe Ibershoff
Hmm, here's another post by me... does this mean I'll *really* start posting again on a semi-regular basis? Maybe, maybe not. I basically realized that I spend quite a bit of time (when I have it to spare) researching current events. I do this because it seems that most news articles I read do a very poor job of presenting the important facts. Some events don't need this sort of research, because the issue is pretty cut-and-dried. But sometimes, especially with the more controversial subjects, I feel like it can be very hard to really understand what's going on, because most of the articles about it leave out many important details, so you have to read at least 4 or 5 to get the full context. Sometimes it takes more than that.

When I find an issue that's important (in my opinion), and the details seem especially hard to find (or at worst, when politicians try to avoid the real issue and then the media allows them to deflect the debate off the important points), I sometimes collect what I think some of the important details are and email them to those who might be interested. But, if I'm going to all that work, I could post it on LJ too. No real extra work, so there's very little reason not to do it.

So, with that in mind, maybe you'll see the occasional news brief and/or analysis showing up on my journal from time to time.
