  1. I’m hopeful that shortly every news story will always bear the indication that it has been read by the opposite side or divergent interest as a matter of course with appropriate footnoting. Much news reporting today seems unreliable or subjective in both wording and content. I’d rather wait and depend on history books than today’s news. To wit: I just discovered how the US got involved in Viet Nam because of France and the Marshall Plan. I’d been aware of it long before others in 1952, but 1947!!? I couldn’t have read about it in the papers at the time. I feel betrayed by the media not doing its job. Apparently, Marshall thought French Indo China a worthy cause and was against the idea of voting for Israel statehood in the UN!
