Minute by minute

Did you know that I can get live feeds to keep me informed to the minute as to what our Prime Minister is discussing with President Obama today. I can join CBC’s live blog and know exactly what words tripped out of Harper’s mouth as they trip. I can follow twitter and get second by second coverage of what anyone and everyone who is present thinks of every gesture, word, and nuance.

Does anyone else think this is weird?

Frankly, I’d rather wait for a few hours and then get a cohesive, well thought out, intelligent report from a trusted news agency.

Just because you can get your live comment heard around the globe doesn’t necessarily mean you should.
