Rolling Stone may not be so hot off the press

We all know that there are controversies, in every day life, sometimes we run into them in a line at a supermarket.

But, we don’t have to take it, you can go to a different line at that supermarket or you can leave and go to the next store right down the road, usually a short distance.

We know that there are people out there that we may not like or get along with but its an easy fix, we can just avoid them or smile and wave as we duck around the corner.

The problem here is that this publication has apparently forgotten its place in society.

There is a place for controversy, we are human after all and yes discussion can often become controversial, however there is a limit to what the public will entertain.  Often times you hear about the idea that freedom of speech does not cover yelling fire in a crowded theater.

Which is both understandable and prudent, the ironic thing is that many times those using that epitaph, do so in a manner and convention that has nothing at all to do with the conversation at hand.

The magazine at the center of this controversy has in the past been a subjective and willing host for all manner of the strange and unusual, however this time, we have what amounts to an accused child killer, who has been subjectively displayed in the same manner as Rock Stars…

This is not controversy this is something that stinks and should be withdrawn.

There is a time and place for discussion, however the idea that American Youth can identify with a Man raised in a war torn part of the world in a part of the world where few Americans can even contemplate the circumstances of his youth.

This idea is offensive.

The truth about what this magazine has become is best left as a stone unturned, As something that should crawl back under said stone…

Fox, Directv, and the extortionists way?

Is Fox extorting money from directv ?

Should Fox be taken over by the government.

While this might sound something of a strange story, apparently there is an ongoing controversy concerning the Fox network and directv.  On one side the story is that the evil News corp wants to increase the subscription fees, to a whopping 40 percent higher.

At issue are several channels that the News corp corporation wants to be compensated at a much higher rate, to hear directv tell the story they are allegedly being extorted into paying a much higher price.

You just dont know what to believe, but one thing remains clear, if they do stop cable distribution of those channels then will my bill go down, and more importantly will your bill go down because hey lets face it, we all need a break and in a time when the economy is really doing poorly, I can go outside and watch the grass grow and be just about as entertained as watching news corp…

In fact DirecTV is taking the News Corp Giant to task with the FCC stating that there could be some nasty business going on, (allegedly) and to be honest, it really makes you wonder, who is the provider here and who is the subscriber.

The contract dispute concerns FX, 19 regional sports networks (including Fox Sports West and Prime Ticket here in Los Angeles) and a handful of smaller channels (but not Fox News), News Corp. is leading people to think that its Fox broadcast network would also be dropped next week. “Fox is using misleading advertising informing DirecTV customers that ‘soon, in some markets, you may lose your local Fox station,’” Chang wrote to the FCC. “Even if the Fox cable channels are no longer carried on Nov. 1

 No matter where you come down on this dispute, no one wants to pay more and everyone would rather pay less, so I say throw the bums out and cut my bill accordingly, but how much do you want to bet that directv does not want to do that…

This may well be a case of having your cake and eating it too…
