Another issue with the Media is how dumb do they think we are?
As I have alluded to, we are having a mini heat wave in Boston
The Drive By Media is warning us to be cautious
Wear light clothing
Drink plenty of liquids
No strenuous exercise
Leave your pets inside
What the local Drive By Media is telling us that we are too stupid to be left to our own devices and may be too dumb to be careful in hot weather
When I do patrols I will make sure to do the following considering I did not listen to the experts.
Warm thick overcoat
Bring no water with me
My wife at noon time is going out to her Chevrolet and drain out all the summer coolant
I asked my daughter to put our Long Hair cat outside in the noon day sun. Make sure he has no water.
And I chuckle when ever a politician or someone from medical or business field is being interviewed on FOX or CNN. “5” minutes after the interview is over some news anchor will be on television telling you what the politician or someone from medical or business field had to say. Why? Your not intelligent to understand what was said so they will interrupt what was said.
I have the space heaters on full blast at the Gatehouse. When it reache s 100 degrees outside I should be comfy
Remember the Drive By News Media considers me too dumb to turn on the room a/c.

Some of the local channels have tried sneeking in to see patients for news stories from time to time. They usually get busted and escorted out. They all know they can not come into the hospital without permission from public relations. One day a crew had set up their equipment in a way that was somewhat blocking the entrence to our front driveway. I went out to ask them to move further down the sidewalk. They were cool about it and apologized. The reporter said to me "Man, I bet you see some crazy stuff here." I told him that I often wondered if they were ever actually listening to their scanners with the amount they miss. He said "Hey, we'll have to sit down and talk about that sometime." My reply; "Not in this lifetime..."Apparently a HUGE cop wannabe...

I am one of the few who actually like the media, in some respects. And absolutely despise them in others.
As a business owner, they have been a very good media for me to spread information, announcements, and whatnot. They have always been cooperative and I've had no issues with press releases, and so forth.
On the other hand, the limited amount of protective guard work that my company does is typically for high profile contracts, and because of that, we often get more media attention than we ... want.
My favorite example is, a few years ago during a major international event in Vancouver, some of my protective staff were employed as close protection for the duration of the event. Several weeks before, when the media was all over the story that the government would let foreign close protection employees carry sidearms, but our private sector domestic ones could not, I was approached by the media to give a story and provide details on how we conduct close protection without firearms. Yes, mere weeks prior to a major contract, they wanted me to provide the details of how we do it.
I smiled, and collected my things. The reporter asked me if he had said something wrong, and I just told him that if he was unable to detect how inappropriate the timing of that question was, then he had more reporting to do before talking to me.
Then I left.
