I'll start putting up some more frequent and probably shorter blog postings (except for a posting on the analysis of the logical basis of median income statistics, which should be fascinating!). I think Ashley is going to post more pictures of Joseph soon. So, no pressure there, Ashley.
On the way to work I heard a message from NPR that said more or less the following: "Currently, Congress is debating a bill that provides funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Please contact your congress person to ensure that NPR continues to receive funding so that it can maintain its independence." ... Wait, what? Independence? There are quite a few legitimate reasons for NPR to ask for public funds, but independence wasn't even close to my top 10. Government money = independence?
So, according to this standard, wouldn't that make Pravda and Xinhua the most independent news agencies in the world?
PS Posters that are part of the 50 cent gang and were led here by the link to Xinhua, please don't waste your time. Comments are moderated and your comment will never be seen. Thanks.
