The chocolate ration is being increased to 25 grammes per week.

90% of US eyeballs and ears controlled by 6 corporations

These 6 Corporations Control 90% Of The Media In America.

Add to this the 24/7 news cycle and what you get is a monotone press that doesn’t do much to inform, unless the scandal of the moment is considered information.

It means you need to seek out your own news sources.  I use Memeorandum, Techmeme, Reddit, and Hacker News.  It also means  you need to take the latest controversy with a grain of salt and wait for the initial new stories to pass, waiting for more level heads to prevail in the 2nd or 3rd wave of stories.  Even on the sites above.

And, of late, I’ve used Memeorandum less and less.  It seems, because of the media consolidation, it too is becoming just a cacophony of rumors and scandals.  Yuck.
