O’ReillyNet: Building Online Communities
Your tax dollars at work. It’s rather unsettling to learn that Bush has been using government resources (paid for by your tax dollars) to promote the Republican party for the upcoming elections. Aren’t there laws against this kind of thing?
BBC News: US media gripped by sniper obsession. This is all too true. Yes, the sniper thing is important news, but so is politics and the Iraq situation. The media focuses too much on the sensationalism. Never forget that mass media is advertising-driven; the more viewers they can get the more money they can charge for their ad spots. For them it is a business decision to focus on sensationalistic news and less on the “boring” stuff like politics and elections.
