“Every newspaper is going to be biased in some way. There's no way around that. Look who funds them. Either they're going to be slanted towards conservatives or liberals based on who is directly paying them or they're going to be slanted towards corporatism because they're owned by corporations. Even independent sources cater to their audiences to the point of being echo chambers, which isn't necessarily a good thing either. Journalism in America is dead. We need a new way forward.”

“CITIZENS BE AFRAID!!!!
FBI just gave itself more powers: agents can now decide INDIVIDUALLY ON THEIR OWN to do investigation WITHOUT DOCUMENTING their reasons for or their investigation activities, which include, among other things, accessing an individual citizen's garbage/personal records!!! http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/13/us/13fbi.html?_r=1

secretive and very powerful, drowning-in-power govt agencies in action: http://www.salon.com/news/opinion/glenn_greenwald/2011/08/26/secrecy

WHICH MEANS TWO THINGS:
1) an agent can monitor a citizen's activities NOT ENGAGED in committing crimes, if the agent believes the citizen has expressed strong criticisms of the govt.;
2) the LACK OF DOCUMENTATION means such records will NOT BE OBTAINABLE through the Freedom of Information Act; thus, NO ACCOUNTABILITY; which means POTENTIAL ABUSE OF POWER that will never be known...
