What’s in the news

By now we’ve all heard and seen more about the Boston Marathon bombing than anything else.  I’ll admit, I’ve been listening to all of it.  But I have to ask, is the fact that the media is putting everything they hear or think they hear, out there, such a good thing?

 

For years we all grew up knowing that there were secret agents that jumped in and did what was needed to keep us all safe.  In my neck of the woods, we’ve always called them Spooks.  They were the ones that did the unspeakable to those that would do us harm.  Now known as “water boarding” and other such tasks.  But, that we even know about water boarding, I’m here thinking we know too much. We’re told too much.  The media reports too much.

 

In this situation, I really do feel that all the videos that the people were making are helping to find the bombers.  And in this situation those that were there are actually beneficial to the investigation.  But on the other hand, in everyday life. I have to ask if knowing as much as is put out there, is a good thing or not?
