I am thinking at some point this year to address a couple of topics of controversy from past year in a completely different way than was previously done on this weblog or elsewhere. The only question I have is what sort of time I will have to work on them -one would be published in August if its done at all this year.

Anyway, I just wanted to note this thought I have had recently in brief here as I may refer back to it at a future point.

Miscellaneous Musings on Bubbles Political and Otherwise:

Though some of what I am about to say has been said on this humble weblog in the past; some of it is new information. Having noted that, I want to clarify that I enjoy being outside the various political bubbles and it seems few folks who seek to follow the news and world events are willing to do this.

Now in my case, it admittedly came in stages. I listened to talk radio close to around the clock from 1991-1996 but left the Republican Party after the 1996 elections. I started using Drudge to get my online news in 2000 while dialing back my talk radio consumption and watching more Fox News. I really cut back talk radio after I gave Limbaugh the heave after the 2006 elections along with Drudge who had begin courting conspiracy schmucks and featuring them. I changed my primary news source online to Real Clear Politics and its subsidiary pages around that time as well but I still consumed Fox and other cable news regularly until I cast Fox and other cable news aside when the bubble created by Fox propaganda around the 2012 election was burst on election night. I swore on that night that Fox and the others could go to hell and I have not regretted my decision one iota since.

Now if I listen to talk radio at all its local stuff or sports 90% of the time. I avoid all television and radio news and get my news in small doses online from various sources via the Real Clear aggregators. Though a longtime Independent voter, it took a while to completely free myself from the various bubbles of the right but I am glad to be and it pleases me when I see and hear of others freeing themselves as well...
