    I'm quoting the part on AI, there is more about the Downing Street Memo, energy, etc. Links at site.

    sometimes i fear for the world in which we live. When i see the blatant love of lies and refusal to accept the truth, I'm reminded of the biblical accounts of the world in the time of Noah. I'm wondering just how long before God says 'Enough!'.

    I agree, then I see something like the MSM jumping on AI and hope is restored. I don't think this would necessarily be their first reaction, but the months of MSM scandals and the unmasking of bias are beginning to have an effect. I'm not saying I expect day-to-day change, I don't; but when there is something this blatant I think some different perspectives may be noted.

    I have to agree here, if this were any other time in history, even 10 years ago I would have been much more worried, now with the flood gates of information opening up and bias being noticed we stand a bit more of a chance for misinformation and propaganda to be squashed.

    I used to think that AI did good work around the globe, then I noticed they had some Liberal Bias and thought slightly less of them. Now they appear to be Chicken Little rabidly running around screaming about something that has no bearing on reality so that they can present a slightly less rabid report on the news? Either way I believe nothing they have to say anymore, their credibility is in the crapper.

    or later the advertisers, which provide the dough for the networks and newspapers, magazines, must awaken to the truth that their advertising dollars are being misspent. When the money dries up, as a result of ever decreasing markets, then the media MUST change it's tune, otherwise they will go belly up. Capitalism's great ain't it!!! Hallelujah!! Somewhere Adam Smith (Wealth of Nations) will be giggling!!!!
