An Eye on New Media

An Eye on New Media | Ken's Odds & Ends | Scoop.it

Welcome to 'Ken's Odds and Ends'. Click this link to go to my 'real' site.

Let me be the first to tell you that this "Odd's and Ends' site is not a polished Scoop.it Page. It is the 'waiting room' or 'overflow room' for my primary Scoop.it page which you can find here:
http://www.scoop.it/t/new-media-technology

The focus of that site is New Media in Society, Business & Classrooms

This site reflects those interests as well as some other scoops that don't fit directly into nice little boxes under the 'new media' umbrella.

Ken Morrison's insight:

I am trying to streamline my primary site.  Oddz and Endz is kind of an overflow of this original site but will have content that doesn't fit into nice little  boxes under the 'New Media' flag

Anatomy of a Wishful Viral Rumor

Anatomy of a Wishful Viral Rumor | Ken's Odds & Ends | Scoop.it

The 2012 campaign isn’t the first to be marked by rumors and distortions. But it’s already setting new land-speed records for the time it takes a tossed-off comment or flat-out falsehood to develop into a “fact” accepted by half the political world. The “report” that Obama would be traveling to Paris to hold a European fundraiser on the Fourth of July was just the latest example of partisa

Trump: Tribune Of Poor White People

Trump: Tribune Of Poor White People | Ken's Odds & Ends | Scoop.it
Hillbilly Elegy author J.D. Vance explains what America doesn't understand about the outsiders elites despise
Ken Morrison's insight:
This is one of the less condescending articles about trying to understand why Trump is embraced. Although I don't support Trump, it truly surprises me how far detached most of the media is from the people who do. Each condescending news story entrenches readers in their feelings that they will continue to be left unheard. This infinite loop is part of the problem.
