the indian news papers, atleast

I suspect that the order of these words is quite different depending on which news channel you are watching; for example: Fox News probably has Terrorism as #1; CBN (Pat Robertson's Christian Network) likely headlines with Gay Marriage; and no doubt Al Jazera starts its broadcast with Bush's latest Funniest (or most unintelligibly delivered sabre rattling) video quote of the day. I mostly watch CNN, they tend to be a bit more objective, but they still are quite obsessive about disasters, tragedies, and horribly violent crimes. Where can a person go to get real news about the "real world"?

I guess we have to ask some of those media moguls ..Pew..Isn’t that so sad many people just die everyday because lack of healthy water but most of the attention is paid on stupid people or stupid issues?!Human lives versus elections?!!

Dr O2 said...

dew drops - yeah n I love that book!

david - the words are not so random :-D

spooky - we can ask but will they care to answer back??

D ec i said...

David said...

Not random? Is there a secret code in these words? ;)

Dr O2 said...

deci - yep! that's the right code ;-)

David - sort of :-) starts with cheating in elections & talks of Fraud & ends with terorism ;-)

jarvenpa said...

You are so right Doc! Wouldn't be nice to wake up and find the words that were most cited were things like:
transformation, healing,joy...
But I'm not sure what our pundits would do with stories like that.

Mehraban said...

david, I think the secret code is "my problem is bush"

David said...

Hi Mehraban,
I think you have broken the code, Bush is a big problem for me too! I am so ready for the November elections, and for the impeachment proceedings that will hopefully follow! :D

Dr O2 said...

Jarvenpa - yeah :-( that's a big problem. No one seems to care abt real problems these days.

Mehraban - hmmm... close but there is more to the sequence :-) Two names n then the events ;-)

David - The tale goes on ;-)

David said...

Is Ahmadinejad secretly gay? Btw, I am not homophobic. I'm just wondering what people are saying about him.
