If you have ever watched a few episodes of ‘The Newsroom” on HBO, you will know that ethics in media is a common theme found throughout the series. One of my favorite moments in Season 1 is when main character Will McAvoy (played by Jeff Daniels) dives into a four-minute long public apology and talks about what he calls the “Media Elite”:
Do you as an audience member feel like more media sources should take this stance? Have you ever noticed a lack of ethics in coverage of something? Or do you feel that the media generally does a good job of delivering you information?

Being raised in Colorado most of my life, it’s kind of embarrassing admitting that I’m not an avid snowboarder/skier. I tried snowboarding once, and I’m pretty sure I’d like skiing, but there’s something I much rather do this winter, even if it means doing it by myself.
And that’s snowshoeing.
I don’t care if it’s too lame for other people, or not a fast enough sport. It’s basically snow hiking. I love the mountains, and since I don’t want to stay cooped up in a lodge every time my friends want to go up there, I thought it’d be the perfect alternative.
As an aside, I think I want to get into indoor rock wall climbing so I’d be ready for next spring/summer outdoors.
