by John on 05/21/2015

I am in the midst of listening to H.W. Brands’ Reagan: The Life. Here is a good review of the same book from The Economist. Again, this is one of my rolling reviews. I am now about halfway through as Ronnie is just deciding to challenge Gerry Ford for the GOP nomination in 1976. So […]

by John May 6, 2015

I am about 2/3rds finished with Peter Schweizer’s Clinton Cash on Audible.com. One of the great features on Audible is bookmarking. I hit bookmark; the narration stops; I add a comment to remind me; and then I hit save; and the recording begins again. This posting will use a lot of my immediate bookmark responses. […]

Video Manipulation We All Do It

by John April 22, 2015

We live in a video manipulation world. In a previous post, I mentioned how police agencies and criminals will try to manipulate video for their own purposes. But we already manipulate reality in our culture. Look at our so-called reality shows. They are all scripted. Yet we call them reality. Is the entertainment business bamboozling […]

Cameras Don’t Lie But Video Could?

by John April 22, 2015

The video war is escalating for cops and alleged criminals. Here’s a story of a US Marshal allegedly trying to destroy a woman’s phone video she shot at a crime scene. Was the woman intruding or was the marshal trying to cover up something he did wrong? We won’t know. And we won’t know just […]

TV in Turmoil: Who’s Fault? You and ESPN

by John April 21, 2015

Things are changing. Hang on to your phone, tablet, laptop, and TV screen. The Comcast-Time Warner merger might be stopped or reduced. ESPN is livid with Verizon Fios for offering to unbundle TV offerings for customers but the plan excludes ESPN and ESPN 2 in the main package and not together. We live in fun […]
