Part of my job is keeping up with the news. In olden days, news editors read other printed publications, checked the news wire and listened to reporters (and neighbors) to stay on top of what was going on.

Things have changed.

Now we also get to follow Twitter, read dozens of online news sites, blogs, feeds and otherwise click things repeatedly. I even get news tips from my friends’ Facebook posts.

It can get messy, but the end result is “more news.”

Today I’m going to summarize a few of the things I find interesting in my daily search. Hopefully some of what I mention will be interesting to you as well. To liven it up, I will throw a little mirth into the mix. Don’t take it too seriously; it’s all in fun.

If you have run across something interesting online, please share it here.

I like the old way George: wires, other papers, and word on the street. Oh, and original ideas. How many reporters these days actually have a genuine, original thought that wasn’t planted by the Facebook or the Twit-ter?

Nothing wrong with old style reporting, especially if all the liberalism is drained out of it. It’s better than word of mouth reporting, which most times is partially inaccurate, if accurate at all. Keep at it, George. But with most reporters being an official, water carrying arm of the DC government, not sure if reporters will be needed past a certain point. I mean, we can trust the infallible goverment…right?

“…is replacing “illegal alien” with “undocumented Democrat,”

Now that is funny. I’m gonna miss Leno.
