Texas...

I guess you've heard the news about Texas textbooks. My father watches Fox News, so I inadvertently catch whiff of whatever's going on according to them.

This has been news for a few months now, the big story originally was when they wanted to take out a lot of what Thomas Jefferson did.

Also fun thing while you watching, when a show like special report is on listen to what the anchor says before cutting away to the reporter.  A fun one I heard was "Here to comment on Obama's planned take over of health care....".

Such bias just sucks and kills the news, it's the same reason I hate Ed Schultz's show, he is like the Hannity of the left.  I highly recommend NPR, you hear bothy sides and the hosts stop any of that yelling back and forth which is the backbone of most cable news.

thankfully, technology has made it much cheaper for publishers to make smaller runs of textbooks for smaller states who used to just buy Texas textbooks, so hopefully the damage will be minimized.

I should listen to NPR. I don't like TV news except when it's local interest.
