Que discrediting of the report because people just "feel" that it is wrong, and don't you "just know" that it is a nefarious plot!?
After all, nothing goes further in this world than the feelings of politicians... Especially when they "feel" the need to get re-elected or appease their lobbyists... You just have to enjoy the "feel" of a good back scratching...
I usually wait a few weeks after the game came out and check youtube for some let's play type videos and see what I think of the game and go from there. I bought Wolfenstein (2009) thanks to doing this, and I absolutely loved it.
"But how will studios compete without being able to produce $100 million dollar games, Pirate Knight! Without shitty studio games with loads of bugs and hordes of DRM and DLC, how can the studios expect to recoup their costs they spent on creating DRM and DLC instead of shipping a product that worked!?
...Maybe we just need to charge for bug fixes. Yeah, that's it! You have to pay for perfection, right!
Somebody write me up a patent! And trademark the sentence before the last! And let's extend copyright while we're at it, for the sake of the newly owned Mickey Mouse Star Wars franchise!"
(I realize after typing this joke post that it seems slightly tangential... But it truly is a commentary on thinking outside the box.)
It is amazing, for all the "time" the 24-hour networks have, they sure as hell don't seem to have any time to do in-depth reporting on hard hitting issues that require real journalism.
Instead let's show...
"LIVE car chases! LIVE weather reports! LIVE... cats and dogs! Awwww, isn't that cute? What, follow the money, that takes time and effort we don't have -- there's cats and dogs to film, for cripes sake!"
5 minutes worth of news for every 2 hours worth of commentary on the 24-hour news networks, IMO.
This was my first thought, as well. Plus, I've already had paranoid thoughts of "what happens if I am doing an absolutely legal thing when the lights change, but they snap my picture and give me a ticket anyway -- how can I fight it!?". I'm sure more people would rather pay their ticket than fight against the brick wall of abuse of authority (all in the name of "money", errr... I mean "protection"...).
