“Newscasters who want to keep their careers afloat learn the fine art of evasion. We should never accuse them of doing a poor and sloppy job of reporting. If anything, with great skill they skirt around the most important points of a story. With much finesse they say a lot about very little, serving up heaps of junk news filled with so many empty calories and so few nutrients. Thus do they avoid offending those who wield politico-economic power. It is enough to take your breath away.”
Jewish Voice for Peace, Tacoma Chapter, held banners over Interstate 5 in Tacoma, Washington, on Thursday, July 24, as one of their several actions on the National Day of Action for Gaza. Sunny day, but VERY windy (and therefore difficult to hold these heavy banners). LOTS of honks and waves and thumbs-up and peace signs (and some “1-fingered” peace signs).
