In the oh-so-important story about Schwarzenegger and Shriver, the following paragraph appears on both websites:

“Shriver, 55, maintained her own identity when her husband entered politics, though she gave up her job at NBC. Their union was often tested in Sacramento, where the former action star contended with seven years of legislative gridlock, a budget crisis and lingering questions about his fidelity.”

The NYT article is one long piece but the Huffpo blogger broke up the same information into several different stories. Whoever lifted that paragraph did manage to rewrite the rest of the story in their own words.

The big 5 are trying to get away with stealing.

The ‘financial’ crisis occurred once the bubble broke in 2008 and was declared as such all over the world… as in ‘Global Financial crisis.’ (although also declared over by most economists who use too many charts and not enough common sense)

It isn’t just semantics. The media has to stay abreast and use the proper headlines and labels to be informative.

Look how the banking crisis was declared over so that bonuses could flow once again! The banks problems were glossed over and whitewashed, but the banking crisis was far from over (as this story also shows)

People who aren’t in an area where foreclosures are rampant and who think foreclosures are simply because some dolt is a deadbeat (such as those giving us this ‘news’ in the NYT) don’t have a clue and sincerely do not give a crap enough to remain up to date (if they ever were…)

I am glad you haven’t given up on these stories Felix (although you have fallen behind as well)
