IMO, those that watch the news are only looking for affirmation of their beliefs, not information. Although I'm pretty darn conservative on most matters, I eventually even got fed up with Fox.
If I somehow lose my right to bowhunt NJ whitetails over this - my bad for not caring... Otherwise I seriously could NOT care less and I mean that from bottom of my heart, and no disrespect to any of you.
I love to bowhunt when I can, love this site, and think y'all are terrific and appreciate all the great advice and knowledge share - but honestly, this seems like a huge over-reaction on every possible level.
Been at it 34 years and can't remember botching any.
PETA thought I was out of my mind several times, and tried to get mass call ins and online comments on stories, but my editors confirmed they were accurate.
Jack - OHY at the over reaction comment! All the way around. Shoot, I've read stuff written by reporters who are known for their accuracy, who I respect, the the personal emotion shines through.
I can't believe their editors let it get to print.
Driving cross country through the night with my buddy on an elk trip. I asked him if he'd get sleepy. He replied that he'd just listen to NPR, and he'd be too mad to fall asleep
Pretty much sums it up for me with any news
I think we are currently towards the end of the "complacency to apathy" stage and closing in on dependence. And I'm just as guilty.
Insert watch the news for read the newspaper. I haven't had TV in the last ten years. When I first got rid of TV I thought I'd be bored now I wonder if I had TV when I'd find time to watch it.

One evening on our way home in my pickup truck, I said to her "I'd like to make it back in time for the news".
She said "why do you want to listen to the news when it always gets you upset?"
And it's somewhat comforting to know that I'm not alone!
If you want to get real perspective the go there and search "lion".
Not reading or listening will not make the enemy go away.
How many problems have been solved through ignorance and lack of knowledge?
Last night while channel surfing I saw a piece on Inside Edition and then later on (believe it or not) Dr. Drew. He had a "panel" of about 10 different people. One Peta(identified) another famous? lawyer that was an anti-hunter, one African American activist and a couple that appeared to be middle of the road types. Surpisingly, Cameron Haines was included by Skype. of course they basically shut him out or cut him off. He got a couple of sentences in, but was over-shadowed by the Anti's. Of course the PETA rep got most of the talking. She was spewing mis-information such as Lion meat is toxic to humans. WHAT????!!!! The inside edition piece actually talked about how popular it is becoming and showed a chef preparing and then a butcher eating it.
Of course both stories were full of inaccuracies. And the Inside Edition piece interviewed Bob Barker who called the hunters "cold blooded killers". Wish I had a nickel for every time I heard that one! ;-)
