[quote:Anonymous Coward 10669628:MV8yNzc1MzUyXzQ4NDg0NDE5XzI4Q0Y1RTlE] [quote:Bansheegrrl:MV8yNzc1MzUyXzQ4NDgzNzYwXzgxQzNGNjFF] oh shit....and I am sorry to say I am in Journalism school right now and instead we are talking about shit that happened three or more years ago, because it is some stupid copy/paste assignment...instead of using what we are studying to look at things right fucking now I don't know what to say. I was trained in a real newsroom in the 90's and am just now finishing my degree, but so many of the kids in the program are so fucking clueless We have a section of the class discussion board where we can talk about current events and other items. I have tried more than once to engage fellow classmates...seriously, NONE answered. I see that so many are choosing to use blinders... Thanks from the bottom of my heart for sharing this...at least I am reading this and taking it onwrd where I can... [/quote] There is few if any real journalists left in the world! Most just burp up the same predictive programing news from TT and Reuters. The Zombie war is comming closer and closer by the day! [/quote]
I was amazed to find that no threads were on GLP today discussing this landmark case against internet freedom and freedom of the press. We are truly doomed. I only heard of this case a few weeks ago and assumed it would be a hot-potato issue here among the freedom-mongers on GLP. I was sadly disappointed that nobody even posted anything regarding this decision. God help us.
