A Sick Politics, Fox News Not Covering Senator Ted Kennedy’s Death

All the TV news networks in the US such as CNN and MSNBC, including local news sources and online news media have been non-stop reporting and covering the death of Senator Ted Kennedy, since the news broke out of his passing, except Fox News Network, which only touches bit-size-pieces reporting on his death.

Senator Kennedy was a democrat, and Fox News generally favors reporting on Conservative related news and events, and thus probably it feels unobligated on deep covering of the death of Senator Ted Kennedy, who was not just a symbol of the success of the American politics and the spear of social injustice, but a great American.

Instead, Fox News is focusing on Obama seeking help from the Godfather for his health-care reform?

Sometimes, we just need to put politics aside and come together not as Liberals and Conservatives, but as Americans, just as we did on 9/11.

Please eulogize and evangelize Senator Ted Kennedy, the lion of democracy and the spear of social injustice at his Wrisen Profile on Facebook.

Rest in Peace, Ted Kennedy, the Champion for Democracy

The liberal lion, the spear of humanity, champion for democracy and social justice, please rest in peace, Ted Kennedy. May the merciful God grace you with eternal mercy in His eternity.

All of us will dearly miss you!

Please eulogize and evangelize Ted Kennedy and his legacy at his Wrisen Profile.

Consumer confidence soars, or may be NOT?

“Sentiment reading increased to 54.1 in August, well above economists’ expectations.” reports CNNMoney.com.

That percentage number was based on a research survey mailed to 5,000 households?

That may sound rather peculiar and possibly stupidly unreliable. That’s, how did they determine which household to mail the survey to, okay, I’m sure they did it randomly, but how did they determine which household has lost income or not, due to a job loss?

Welated, a Social App for Social Networks

Welated for iPhonesIn July, I launched Wrisen, a social app for social networks on Facebook, which has so far received great, rave review, and it’s growing faster than I’ve expected.

We’re currently working to launch a full version of the Welated site at the end of August, but the exciting news is about our new social app version of Welated for social networks and iPhone which we are also launching towards the end of August.

We will first launch the Welated app for social networks, specifically for Facebook, and then follow up with the iPhone version.

Welated is a service that alerts users instantly any time their mates cheat on them with anyone, anyplace, anywhere.

Recognize Passed Loved Ones Using Social Media

On July 5th, Ken Morico posted on his K.Mog blog about using social media to recognize passed loved ones, which is very similar to what Wrisen does, and I thought it’s cool to have found his blog today. Here is what he wrote;

“When two people I know died and I witnessed the online support of friends and family that followed, I realized that social media can create a sort of digital cemetery. In real life, visiting a cemetery can be a social activity. With social media Web sites like Facebook, activities like visiting a cemetery can be mimicked.

When you create a Facebook Group, you enable family and friends to share stories, photos, and discuss the deceased person with others. With the United States being so large and people spread out in cities all over the world, it can be challenging to visit a cemetery. Like other tasks with social media, visiting a digital cemetery is very fast. Where else can you visit a cemertery 24 hours a day, seven days a week? Certainly visiting a digital cemetery isn’t scary at night.”
