On My Mind 

I know there’s a lot going on right now, but let me pull back the curtain a second and give you a glimpse of what’s transpiring in my brain-

Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars.

Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars.

Star Wars.

Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars.

Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars.

Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars.

This Title Has Been Corrected

Been an interesting day of news, but not for the reasons you might think.

Sure, the usual Trump shite, another sexual predator resigns from congress and whatever else the universe felt the urge to throw at us. What caught my attention though, was what two news organizations got wrong.

CNN ran a story this morning alleging that Don Trump Jr. got an e-mail from someone with a code key offering up all the Wikileaks documents. The date on this happened to be a little while before all the files were released.

As it turns out, CNN messed up on the dates, and this was actually 10 days after the documents came out. No story there.

On the other side of the reality spectrum, FOX News ran with a headline screaming ‘Roy Moore Accuser forged yearbook evidence’. Of course, from other reports earlier, we had learned that wasn’t the case.

What actually occurred, was that the woman added the date and place as notes, underneath Moore’s dedication and signature.

Again, both stories here aren’t what I’m focused on. It’s how they were dealt with when they were proven incorrect.

On CNN, they issued a correction, a press release and added an update at the top of the original story.

On FOX, they deleted the original tweets and modified the story (without bylines).

It’s clear where I’m standing who handled it the correct way, and who tried to sweep it under the rug now that the damage was already done. A provocative headline will always garner more attention than a corrected one.

Journalists fuck up, we all do.

The difference is whether it was an accident, or whether they’re using misinformation as a tool to further an agenda.

We need to hold the news media to a high standard, they’re one of our main protections against ignorance. To journalists, in the wake of a screw up, I recommend-

Take responsibility, correct the record louder than you muddled it, make amends to those you hurt and do better next time.

Shitty day for news, but we either learned something or spent the day yelling ‘FAKE NEWS’.

I’ll take the former.

Quote of the Day

“The lowest form of popular culture – lack of information, misinformation, disinformation, and a contempt for the truth or the reality of most people’s lives – has overrun real journalism. Today, ordinary Americans are being stuffed with garbage.”
-Carl Bernstein

FINE.

We’re going to have this talk, and some of you aren’t going to like it. I have to live with that, but nonetheless, we’re still going to have this talk.

Sit down.

We’re going to talk about The Orville.

I said sit down.

The Orville, created by and starring Seth MacFarlane, is a Scifi-Dramedy hybrid that airs on Thursday nights on FOX. It’s currently 11 episodes in, with the season finale airing shortly. It was been renewed for a second season.

Before going any further, I know that a lot of you have an intense dislike for MacFarlane. Either because of Family Guy or due to an irrational and unexplained genuine loathing (similar to what people feel for Guy Fieri, or Nickelback). I’m asking that whatever you think this show is going to be, whatever preconceived notions and expectations are, that you leave them at the door.

Then I’m asking you to watch 3 episodes of the Orville: The Pilot, Episodes 2 and 3.

The Pilot is uneven, and the pacing is poor. The 2nd episode improves hugely and begins to show you what this show can be. And the 3rd? The 3rd is what will make you watch the other 9.

This show is for me. This show is for people who wondered how they would behave on the set of Star Trek: The Next Generation. It’s for people who love to laugh and think.

More so, if you like Least I Could Do, it’s safe to say you trust my judgement when it comes to entertainment. The Orville is for you.

After you’ve given it a look, please come back here and tell me what you thought.

I like being right.

Quote of the Day

“Science fiction is any idea that occurs in the head and doesn’t exist yet, but soon will, and will change everything for everybody, and nothing will ever be the same again. As soon as you have an idea that changes some small part of the world you are writing science fiction. It is always the art of the possible, never the impossible.”
-Ray Bradbury
