As many noteworthy events unfold in these United States and elsewhere (National Defence Authorisation Act, for example), the disconnect between what is perceived important by people, and what is presented as important to people, is increasingly jarring. Calls of ‘censorship’ are growing, and with good reason: The lack of meaningful news, especially from domestic news […]
