Where good taste, clear and distinct ideas, and graceful modulations tend to be viewed with lowering suspicion.

so it has become, and thus were / are we mediated.
If this is true, then media outlets who do not adapt to the new internet 2-way media will not survive. Blogging works that way, blogger to blogger to other internet friendly media. The news will be more and more peer produced person to person rather than corp. to corp.
Therefore we are media.I have been assimilated. Resistance was futile.
... what Felix said
What people call news is really current events, which are packaged for consumption according to formulas. People go to "news" expecting something like a brief, topical recounting of recent history. They almost always come away titillated, disappointed, enraged or misled.For current events, I am better off getting the "news" from my peers and the people they find interesting. In that way, I do get something very much like a recounting of recent history. In the last few years, I've been getting an even broader perspective.There are categories of hard news, current events with significance, that can be found in small publications, specialist reports and from the better financial reporters. But they're not very useful unless you have an ongoing interest in education.
Sure we're "mediated," but are we sufficiently medicated?
