On the topic of child pornography, you reminded me of twelfth grade. I remember that there was this kid in my grade that got arrested for hosting and operating a child pornography website on a server that he had in his house. This isn't as funny as what Scott had to say about child porn, but the way that you said child pornography reminded me of the way that the person telling me the story revealed the reason why this rich, pampered kid got arrested and sent off to jail.
Crap. I completely forgot about NPR. Yeah. I believe that they are the ONLY non-biased news out there.
Fark. Slashdot. Digg.
Actually, a student was kicked out of the dorms and arrested at RIT during our freshman year for child pornography. Apparently he'd had a rather large collection, and an equally large degree of networking ignorance, which led him to sharing the entire thing on the LAN.
Google News seems to be the best general source, as it brings countless sources together. I always have fun seeing how different agencies present their own headlines for the same story.
When it comes to kids getting in trouble, in my experience, it usually starts with chat rooms. I've never been one for chatting, but with AIM, Skype, etc, it can be a scary place. It appears to me to be difficult to protect your children when it comes to chat rooms. After all, pedophiles can take up residence in some pretty benign looking chat rooms.
Okay... to bring this back to a discussion of the news...I'm going to give away a multi-million dollar idea. Just give me a little something when you get rich off of this.Here is what we need in the world of podcasting. Something akin to my.yahoo.com. A service where you can select what news and entertainment you want, and in what order. A program will put the news together into one mp3 file and give you a unique RSS feed. This would put terrestrial news radio out of business! Just plug this into your car and have what you want when you want. You can even structure it so it is the same length as your commute.
I can tell you that nearly all news writers are very, very opinionated but refuse to allow their views to seep into their reporting.
It's no secret that the Big Three networks have long produced very liberal, progressive news.
I think what he's saying is that the people working for those big three networks aren't necessarily liberals. They don't always agree with the liberal, progressive news they report. They just think that reporting in a liberal, progressive fashion is the way to make more moneys.
Weren't you going to do a day against drm podcast on monday?
Liberals sympathetic (I think in America that makes them not Liberal though. Liberal in Australia means right-wing. Different in the US, yes?).
