Thanks for sticking around

January 2nd, 2017 by Ken

Yesterday, I listened to a panel of people representing the mainstream media.  They were talking about the election and how the media treated both candidates.   What was interesting about the conversation is that several of these mainstream media people were talking about on-line media.   They estimated that as many as 40 percent of all people get their news off of their hand held devices.

In doing so, they reasoned, many of them miss much of the news content.  Those using hand held devices read only a paragraph or two of the news and do not spend a great deal of time reading any one story.   The mainstream media types ascertained  then that they fill that void by giving readers or listener more detailed information.   And, they reasoned, that was their purpose.  That was how they were going to counter the new technology.

Many of you know that I ceased my printed publication a year and a half ago.  I had published “Ken’s Corner & The Real News” in newsletter form for 29 years.   I stopped the printed version for many reasons – one of them being cost – and transferred to on-line publication.    I have found that writing on-line is different than print and have adapted as quickly as I can.

If you are reading this on a hand held device, thanks for sticking around this long.

In 2017, I want to continue to provide you with information and opinion that you find interesting and helpful.   I will also endeavour to keep the posts shorter and hope to do more of them.    Thanks for sticking around.
