Thursday Roundup: Killing Red-Light Cameras, Douche Drivers, Poor Reporting & More

  • Meanwhile, some of you clock-punching commuters — thank the highfather for teh Internets and telecommuting — are acting like douchebags. Especially during the morning rush.
  • Do I even need to say what would put an end to these kinds of home invasions?
  • A good tell that a news agency has little understanding of the basics of business and economics is in how they cast business stories in single-perspective black-and-white, focusing on a single negative. For instance, “Low Oil Prices Spell Trouble for Economy.Which, yes, it hurts some energy companies and economic activity in the Barnett Shale, but it also benefits as many others — everyone from American Airlines to ordinary people heating their homes and gassing their cars.

    I sometimes wonder if the media think the only way to spin a piece as news is if it has a negative slant. Prices of oil go up – bad for the economy. Prices of oil go down – bad for the economy. Temperatures go up – global warming – bad for mankind and the planet. Temperatures go down – climate change – bad for mankind and the planet. I sometimes think that reporters are like lemmings looking for the next cliff to jump off.
