The press must now “Publish” or perish something perfectly illustrated in Steven Fox with CNN Jake Tapper where Tapper tweeted that shots had been fired at an airport in Los Angeles, without citing any sources. And while that may seem to be only beneficial to news reporting and digestion, Tapper proves that social media often forces even the trained journalist to falter and reject his values. I like to think that we will adapt, as we always have.
ARCHIBALD: Yeah. My colleague Kyle Whitmire calls it the Alabamafication (ph) of America. I prefer to think of it as Neobama (ph). Technology enlarged the market, not just geographically by lowering transport costs but also by making possible the trade in a whole range of goods that didn’t exist before, such as pirated software or genetically modified marijuana. New technologies also made it possible to trade internationally products that in the past were hard or impossible to transport or hold in “inventory” human kidneys, for instance.

Scruggs played in Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys band, and later led Flatt Scruggs with guitarist Lester Flatt.

Conservative opponents forced a discussion of nearly 5,000 amendments, a move derided by Socialists as inconsequential stalling tactics.

USAB, if I understand correctly, works directly with these guys, so who better than them to give a seal of approval? I wouldn trust AAU or individual High schools as far as I could throw them.Same logic applies to the NBA and the combine.Most importantly, I have a very hard time believing anyone here would be happy with the NCAA being held responsible for certifying eligible players for the draft, high school, collegiate, or otherwise. In addition to the blatant conflict of interest as well as their well documented fickleness, there are too many people here who ride the “Fuck the NCAA!!!” train anytime their name is mentioned. The level of “outrage” would have been the same, if not greater.
