    While the journalists may revise their 'rough drafts of history' more often, as you say, the revisions tend to merely paraphrase what went before. Hence the Ron Paul newsletter material is swallowed and regurgitated with a bit of 1995 youTube conflated into the mess every now and then.

    A few interviews with the Austin NAACP leader, or reference to online 'zine thyBlackMan's assessment of the claims could have doused the hysteria a bit.

    It's not that the people distrust, as you say, the media without reason; and you concede the environment that contributes to the ADD you lament: surrounded by dozens of monitors, there's no time to track stories and issues except as the track is a fairly well-worn rut.
