Donate to Support Tsunami Relief

Donations are being requested by the Red Cross and other organizations to support relief efforts following the devastating earthquake and tsunamis in South East Asia. The impact of this disaster is immense. Please, if you can, support these efforts. Every penny counts. Please be aware that there are currently some very horrific individuals scamming several kind patrons into believing that they run a donation site, when in fact, the donations go straight into their wallets. I have assembled the following list of donation sites from only trusted sources. To view the list, click the link below.

Facts and Fiction

The factual content of the news has always been a hot topic. Lately, it seems as if issues are either blown out of proportion or simply forgotten. Sometimes the smallest misuse of a word can lead to the largest misunderstanding. How could this be bad for our society? Why can’t we exaggerate? Exaggeration boosts our ratings, increases the viewer’s adrenaline, and increases overall interest in our content. You can’t exaggerate facts. When you deal with the news, you deal with individual’s lives and their careers. The last thing an individual wants is to have something he did or didn’t do be blown out of proportion. The facts need to be presented, not the fiction. Famed author, Orson Scott Card, has done an excellent job of explaining the evil brought forth by Reporting Out of Context.
