What 'They' Are Saying

Monday, May 11, 2009
I've added a new link to the side-bar, to a page that I think some will find useful. What 'They' Are Saying provides news in it's raw form. That is to say our News Media is focused on persons of interest. And more importantly, most of what we read and view in the News Media is taken from quotes of those persons of interest.

If you click on the link ( under items and issues worth watching ), you will find quotes of five significant persons; Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Vladimir Putin, Ahmadinejad, and George Soros. This is a short list that I believe to form the core of most news articles that deal with international issues. The list will no doubt grow as other folks ascend in the Pantheon of Journalism.

I'd like to thank Google, and their Advanced News Search Feature that has served me so well over the last year or so. This is a marvelous device that has allowed me to ( among other things ) filter searches with key phrases such "Putin said", and "Obama said". With a few adjustments, your search results can be tweaked to display in chronological order. But the best part is these searches are available as rss feeds that can be subscribed to in your rss reader ( I use Google Reader ).

Perhaps you have clicked on one of the other links (...items and issues...). The Mother of all Frauds has seen a lot of activity in the last few months as I track stories about the current World Economic Crisis. Google allows it's users to publish 'tagged' items that they find via rss. I have about one hundred such pages.

That is what I do on the Internet, I read and tag items of interest. Sharing them is a what I enjoy the most. I subscribe to quite a few feeds from bloggers around the world, and would like to thank them for their efforts.

Internet News is like a flood that picks up and carries bits and pieces of the world. You can't read it all, but you are able to filter the most relevant items, and then 'share'.
