Make a stand.

I value opinions. I don’t like weasel-tongue—hiding behind formality or false politeness. The news channels/newspapers give you n number of sides to each problem, when in fact they should give you only one or maybe two. Don’t tell me what everyone else is thinking; if I’m reading your words, I want to know what you think. Have the balls to make a stand. Don’t endlessly spin a topic, you’ll only turn me off. And for people who don’t really say anything, they sure find it gleeful to point out when other people said something wrong. Expect mistakes, don’t start a witch-hunt every time someone forgets some minor detail. Save that for the big topics, will ya?

    I remember you saying sometime back on the other blog, that you wish news papers /channels did not feed you opinion and blah, gave you both sides of the story and allowed you to decide.

    Well, I guess I must have changed my mind. I truly don't remember feeling any other way.

    I don't remember the post you're talking about, but that seems like one of my rants. My rants are without any logic. I just dump whatever I'm feeling at any given point into some vaguely cohesive seeming post. Maybe I didn't quite write that one well enough.

    You shouldn't take what I say too seriously anyway, my slogan over at Twisted View was:
    "My views are arbitrary and irrational. But I'll defend them anyway."
