Future of Internet News?

kootch Re:Syndication (315 comments)

Sometimes isn't it worth getting your news "unfilted"? I mean, just like the bland "filtered" beers of Budweiser and Miller, wouldn't you want a full-flavored unfiltered news source that gives you ALL of the news so that you can gain an understanding of events going on outside your narrow interests? Don't you want to be engaged to enlarge your perspective as opposed to narrowing your views?

I mean, if you wanted to filter your news and input, might as well just turn on Rush Limbaugh for one point of view.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
