I have similar media frustrations with when the U.S. is first deciding whether to invade somewhere. Suddenly all this news comes out of nowhere with no actual context provided.
Sometimes I wonder how different the U.S. would be as a democracy if our media spent as much time on day-to-day international news as they currently spend on celebrity gossip.
As I alluded to at the start of this thread, I've been frustrated with the lack of context provided by American media on what's happening right now in Afghanistan.
This interview partially ameliorated my feeling of having no idea what's actually going on there: https://www.democracynow.org/2021/8/18/matthew_hoh_afghanistan_war#transcript
It might be of interest to anyone who is feeling similarly.
Yes, that sounds about right.
@dynamic What I've wondered is why some of these similar-leaning sites don't just merge and pool resources. Is it ego or money related?
