Main Stream Media

I confess that I am a news junky.  I will watch disaster coverage until it gets repetitious because there is nothing new to report.  I signed Bernie Sanders’ petition to get the MSM to cover him more (maybe after Iowa and New Hampshire?).  I have news alerts from the New York Times as one of my apps and I get email from at least 3 news organizations.  And I have even been known to watch the Brattleboro Selectboard meeting on local cable.

Part of what I watch on cable news is how breaking news stories are handled.  That is why I loved the Mutts series that ran last week.  I have long been a Patrick McDonnell fan following the adventures of Mooch and Earl (I get the new strip emailed to me every morning) closely.  They don’t often make what I would consider political comments unless about the environment but this was such as gentle poke at news coverage, I have to share it.  Here they are:  Monday through Saturday.
