Professionalism and Expertise

Years ago folks assumed that there were professionals with an ethic, and there were experts with expertise.  In this world professionals routinely ignore their ethic and experts are folks who get to be on TV, usually for free.

As Mark Twain denied his children the vice of reading newspapers, one must avoid the vice of watching news.Reuters has a good format for following fires, arrests, murders, sports and bombing.  Just the facts in the headlines, hopefully.  Reading further is a delicate matter.

BBC, DW, UPI, AP all have a slant, a message, The Guardian, the Mail, Match, Allgemeine.  They all push an agenda.  Television has plummeted to pure trash.

Suitable blog sites seem to be able to bring light, but it is a matter of judgement, because one day jewels, the next day trash.
