12/2/04 Outfoxed

I came across last night. Its purpose is to inform the public about the agendas of the media. A former FCC attorney puts it best in this video clip - Why you should care. The whole premise behind this page is that a few large corporations, run by an elite few, control what you hear on the radio when you wake up, what you watch on TV over breakfast, what you hear in your car on the way to work, and so on and so forth. If you click on "Clips", there are interviews with people who worked at Fox and they are now speaking out about the hidden agendas that they were given. And many of them feel like they lost their journalistic integrity once they started working for Fox.

In the m0re upbeat section for today, Lycos has unveiled a screensaver that will bombard spammers' IPs, as to eat up their bandwidth. The hope is that millions of people will download the screensaver in order for it to be effective.

And finally, the debate rages on... Pop vs. Soda. Check it out - it's a pretty hardcore study.

For my deep thought of the year - Bluegrasss music is like acoutic metal. Which is why, despite its stigma, it rocks.
