We here in Le Roy like the polls, so keep them coming. This one is kinda like a survey, which makes it informative to see what other people are doing.

Yeah, but not very scientific ... of course most people on an online news site are going to say they prefer online for news ... still ... fun to watch that number go up :).

Here is a question What does not getting your "news" by word of mouth mean to/say about a community such as ours? or even society in general What exactly are the implications of knowing what is going on -out there- but perhaps not really knowing what is going on right here that is affecting the lives of neighbors Course, people can say they read the Daily/local/RNews whatever But I wonder I wonder if people see local news as news at all and I mean backyard smalltown local news Dale, NY news Stafford news Batavia news 3000 people die elsewhere hundred or two die elsewhere BIG STORY One person dies/is injured on our roads here OR WHATEVER Not even a comment on the post if provided one on thebatavian I'm retty sure some dude got shot last night in Rochester or Buffalo or perhaps a couple in each Where is all the ____________ for that news story Where is the collective outrage on that maybe you get a 25 person vigil Not much vigilance is likely to come I chose TV myself but it's likely a split with internet Television news? Murder, gas prices, war, politics, weather How much does this stuff really truly matter to us right here at home? Murder is over Gas prices are out of your control Weather? if its not severe weather time just look outside Who even has a clue about whats really going on over there in combat Politics WHAT IS NEWS Is NEWS just the "daytime story/SOAP" for the middle-aged If knowing your current events is truly ALL THAT important Why don't we watch the news from all other countries Is anyone watching El Newso? Probably not Anyone watch al jazeera? Probably Probably those interested in politics Why would that be? Are these same people the world leaders that truly want to bring peace to everyone not experiencing it Highly doubt it ..you form your own conclusions as to why they would/do People live without news and well Maybe if people worked a bit harder at becoming better people instead of becoming better informed of why some other people aren't better people we wouldn't need the news at all ..or at most for 10 minutes ..a week It doesn't take years, decades or centuries to fix problems unless there are alterior motives What is in the average news broadcast that is actually new If you cannot answer with much than the news has been relatively useless 365x500 years? 300 years at least Gotta have more than a couple hundred positives to share
