DSL Reports Scoops Major Press Outlets

This story just goes to show, folks like Karl, who actually do reporting and reading, are light years ahead of the "mainstream" press. These letters, judging from their date, have been available for many days. Yet this is the first time this "XYZ" nonsense was mentioned anywhere.

No, Karl is just doing what every good journalist has done for the past few centuries. The others just regressed.

The mainstream press these days is owned by the large conglomerates. Unfortunately mainstream "News" (TV and even newspapers in many ways) has become "Entertainment" and in today's attention-deficit society they just serve up headlines and soundbites. Sometimes you can get more information by surfing around the net and reading articles, but that too is polluted by blogosphere nonsense, editorials and opinion disguised as factual reporting, and even all out falsehood and total wackiness, as well as paid for spin parading as truth...

You know, you'd be AMAZED at how often Press Releases are simply reported almost verbatim as if they were absolute fact, and not the company's best spin on things. Virtually cut and paste!
