As far as the newscasts go, I am constantly amazed at how much technology and time they put into the weather. I get 3-D maps, barometric pressure, live remotes from some rookie journalist in a storm telling me that it is windy and raining. Just tell me if it is going to rain or not and how cold it is going to be. I am good with that. I am going to work, and my job is not landing the friggin Space Shuttle.

Exactly, I've gravitated towards French presses and the Italian style percolator things. Some things just don't need to be any easier to do. Slow down and enjoy the finer things...

You can basically follow two nfl reporters and find out everything.

The question for me...Why do I need to know within seconds that Chase Blackburn signed?

I hate this age of instant gratification

No one is physically at a computer all day "on" twitter, people periodically update twitter as most have it as an app on their phones.

Please tell me how the hell was Gantt more efficient at his job than Person? Person is literally one of the worst beat writers compared to the others, using Twitter as an excuse for Person's delayed reports...pathetic.

There's plenty of workers who "don't get paid much"(teachers, police officers, to name a few), but I bet they still grind it out. He's a fuging reporter, report the damn news.

[/quote]mmmm...french press. i don't think i've used it in a couple weeks. gonna have to use that for my afternoon coffee.

one thing I'm going to get soon is a costa rican coffee maker. i mean i could make one, but I've got a buddy from there who is supposed to pick one up for me when he goes back in the summer. good stuff, tho. it takes some time to make it, but its so worth it.

[/quote]when I'm at my computer I'm running something that updates all my feeds automatically every few minutes and i get a pop up on my screen for every tweet so I'm kind of on twitter all day. not sure why, tho. it's a pretty big distraction.

They put a lot of technology and time to making a hamburger at McDonalds, but don't show me how a cow was systemically transferred into a Big Mac before I order one.

Do you really understand barometric pressure and know what to do with that information?

Yeah, but on twitter I have to parse the actual news from what the beat writers think about the weather, the pope, their kids' TV watching habits and their political opinions.

Stop trying to report "Breaking News". Those services are no longer needed. There is a massive world wide instant breaking news platform, its called Twitter. Let the actual players and teams announce that crap. They no longer need you to distribute that information.

Now, what to do with all that extra time I saved you? How about interesting in depth long form content. We have new players we know nothing about. We have a new OC with big question marks. There are tons of stories out there for the taking if you reporters would start...reporting.

I actually liked this. Thank you. Don't give me two paragraphs a half day late. Give me something new and interesting. Do some work that takes more than a couple minutes of reading someone else's article to create.
