Scary Headline in my Sunday morning paper

My wife and I get the local small town newspaper. It does a pretty good job, IMO, keeping us apprised of the local news. And I'm happy to support it.

In today's Sunday morning edition, above the fold, is this headline: "Agencies grapple with new Twitter".

Really? Twitter changed ownership, basically went private. That means the company has less regulatory obligations, not more, as it's not a publicly traded company with fiduciary duties to shareholders and transparency duties to the SEC.

But the powers that be don't like the prospect that the new owner may not censor the correct info, and so they need to "grapple" with this new company??? This is absolutely chilling to anyone who has even the slightest of libertarian leanings.

Screw the political powers that be. Don't tread on me, Don't tread on private companies, Don't tread on the 1st A. And the media just sits by and nods approvingly... until the day the agencies come for them, and they're starting to do so. Bunch of idiots.

The media has their heads buried in the sand as to what is really going on around them/us. If they do report anything it is AO one sided I get pissed off. I can’t watch any news at all. Then you add the daily killings & it’s too depressing for me to even stand. I would like to be “informed “ but I just feel you never get the true story anyway.

sorry, just a little rant about the media. It really makes me sick.

If Jeff Bezos had bought Twitter, there would be parties going on. But Elon is bad because he wants free speech. Remember, at no time in history were the good guys censoring information. Think about that.

I used to watch news in the morning before work as I was making breakfast, getting kids ready for school, etc. It got so bad my wife told me not to turn it on anymore. We would just listen to music instead. Now we sometimes listen to music, but still no news.
