@Zlivovitch I don’t post much on this forum, but your comment at other people here is really uncalled for. I personally find your comment to come off as toxic.
I’d like to kindly ask you to not be so quick to judge people.
Here are all the things I respectfully disagree with:
Well, that’s called journalism. Most of the important news you get are from an entity called a newspaper, or a magazine, or a TV station. Many of those have now websites, but the basics of news gathering have not changed.
That does not mean it always has to stay this way. And it hasn’t, the internet changed everything.
It’s a typical tradition fallacy, please read this: https://www.softschools.com/examples/fallacies/appeal_to_tradition_examples/487/
You don’t get to speak to heads of state or policemen, because you’re a nobody.
First of all, please keep it civil in here.
Second, I see literally not a single person in this thread asking to talk to heads of state or policemen.
Additionally, most of the nicer cops I know are mostly open to have a conversation or answer a quick question.
You are calling people a “nobody” and divide people between “the nobody” and the ahem “elite” “journalists” and “bosses” and “policemen” and “heads of state”
Do you realize that literally all of these people are literally just that: people. It are the same people.
You might enjoy authority figures, and that’s you’re right to feel that way.
However, there is no such thing as a nobody, because “the nobody” holds the exact same jobs as you consider the elite.
So why put people in this thread down and call them nobody?
How do you know you might not be speaking to a journalist?
After all, those are better than a nobody right?
Would you take the person you’re responding to more serious if he or she was a journalist?
Do you understand that journalists get information from people? People that mostly aren’t journalists?
Are these nobodies not allowed to have an opinion?
Are these nobodies not allowed to ask for a better source of information?
Are these nobodies not allowed to ask for the data?
Not to mention, the current (lack of) ethics in journalism are a complete joke. Journalism is hilarious these days.
There’s no “link to the data”
Also wrong. Enjoy my friend, the freedom of information has arrived:
Enjoy the links… of the actual content. Not some journalistic fluff piece.
You don’t have any sort of human right to see “the data”
It’s not about human rights. Someone asked for the data, I provided it. So now what? Are you going to call the internet police?
Don’t assume the whole world works like the computing sector and the Internet, because it does not.
Again you’re stuck in tradition. The internet has changed our lives in many ways. There’s no such thing as a world without it, because it is everywhere. So yes, it does work like that these days.
There are still a few normal people left out there
I don’t know what you’re problem. Why imply that the person you’re responding to is not normal?
No offense but it sounds like you are acting arrogant.
What if you just replied to the head of the CIA?
Would that make it better? More normal?
and they lead their lives like everybody did for centuries.
Again with the tradition, please learn about traditional fallacies.
