Over the weekend the headline reports on CNN radio where all about the balloon boy.
I think it's safe to say issues like global warming and peak oil and resource wars are never gonna be dealt with in a serious manner by the media. At least not the U.S. media - It's completely defined by triviality and commercial interests. What passes for mainstream "news" in the United States these days is basically a corporate-version of Pravda - well produced, entertaining, grade A bullshit.
Pity the rest of the country isn't watching any serious material like this:
