Sisi built his second canal. Which is nice and all. It's a feel good project that might offer a long term cash cow. yes it was expensive. But hey put a lot of people to work for a year digging a huge ditch. But that's not what my thread topic is about. My topic is about the news coverage of the event. It comes off as one singular message. "It was expensive. It's totally unnecessary. There's more pressing (social) needs" It's like ALL the major news agencies are given a homework assignment to stress the SAME EXACT point about the event. There's not one diverging or fresh angled article I've read about this event. it's almost ALL the same. SO I'm posing the question. Did anyone else notice this for this event? And is this the first time you felt like a breaking news event coverage seemed so contrived and messaged that it was hard not to notice?
