Expecting A Hillary Clinton Win Tomorrow

Republicans have to do better for themselves in 2020, but they already knew they had to do better in 2012 and *THIS* is what they came up with.

I expect Hillary Clinton to be elected President of the United States of America tomorrow.

I’ve *BEEN* tired of talking about this ridiculous election cycle, so I’ll mention some reasons why I believe she’ll win, and make a couple of other points so we can see if anything I have to say is relevant in the future. Continue reading “Expecting A Hillary Clinton Win Tomorrow”

Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump Debate #01 Review

Hillary won, but Trump didn’t lose.

Hillary Clinton won last night’s debate handily, but not by as much as she needed to.

People who are intelligent enough and well-read enough to understand what they were saying to each other are clear across the board that Hillary won.

Other people either don’t have the time or the interest to achieve this understanding, so for them, Trump wasn’t exposed as being incompetent, which is the only thing that might erode his base. Continue reading “Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump Debate #01 Review”

Citizen Journalism

PBS’ “Frontline” is doing a series called “News War: What’s Happening to the News”. Part 3 aired last night @ 9pm, but you can watch it online.

Segment 19 in part 3 is of particular interest to those of us involved in videoblogging, which is, on the simplest level, putting videos on a blog. These videos could be personal. They could be something created or acted out. They could be just about anything…. Except they could also be a documentation of something that happened. For some reason, there’s a debate surrounding the importance of this. It seems completely obvious to me that if you document something and post it for people to see….. right now…… ALL around the world…….. that makes your work just as valid, if not MORE SO than someone who has a job called “journalist” and took some courses explaining HOW they’re supposed to report things and WHAT they’re supposed to report. :/

The first part of Segment 19 features an interview with Andrew Baron, creator of Rocketboom, as well as clips featuring Joanne Colan, current Rocketboom anchor and Amanda Congdon, former Rocketboom anchor, subsequently of Amanda Across America, and now ABC News. There’s also a clip of Amanda interviewing Josh Wolf, who’s currently in jail because of “citizen journalism”.

In another segment of the show, they mention that Amanda ‘made the jump’ to ABC News. I think that’s an interesting piece to the puzzle of “us vs them”, with independents on one side and MSM on the other. I suppose that those who are interested in attempting to invalidate “citizen journalism” could argue that ABC simply hired “on-air talent”. They chose HER and not necessarily “her journalism”.
