3. I'm not watching the
JonBenet stuff but I can see how people who were facinated with the case 10 years ago would be totally captivated by it now. I mean really, this guy Karr is bizarre, really really bizarre. He almost looks like some Hollywood stereotype of a psychopath. Creepy creepy. Holywood couldn't write a weirder story.

I don't know what JonBenet was a diversion for 10 years ago. It was on 24/7 back then.

11. He looks like a fruit cake to me.
I bet he still wets the bed. Pervert, yes, but killer? I don't think so. Could be wrong, of course, but am betting against it. Bring back the Run Away Bride story. Now that was news!

4. Need anymore tinfoil
To assume that every media prurient fascination is some sort of sinister "wag the dog" kind of plot is silly at best.

7. Obviously not

But the corporate media jumps at the chance to divert attention.

It only makes sense, really. If the media is owned by the biggest players in the Military Industrial Complex, you think they're gonna want the alphabet-soup networks to report that the weapons they made were just used to blow away some innocent people in the Middle East?

5. I started watching CNN less and less when the Chandra
diversion just got too repetitive and we were still looking for scraps of real news. Back then though you still had a few liberals like on Crossfire trying to get the real news out. I haven't watched any of the cable channels since then unless someone posts something worth watching at DU. Now I understand that CNN has become the Wolf Blitzer channel. I never did watch the other ones, well maybe CNBC when I was looking for financial news once in awhile.

12. Well, the sharks ain't co-operatin' this year.
Can't count on them for timely diversions.

One thing about this Karr issue (and I really have been avoiding most news since he became a star) that bugs me: Where was he when he confessed? Did I read Thailand? Isn't that one of Neil Bush's favorite haunts? Just askin, doncha know. Not suggesting anything... :evilgrin:

13. OK so why would we need a diversion before a terrorist attack?
What were they diverting from, in your theory?

16. Just posting to keep track of the above link, since I can't access it
at work. I've heard a couple of theories along those lines and I'm curious. Thanks.
