Let's talk news.

[Georgia's sitting at her desk, dressed in her usual black blazer and white shirt, staring at the camera seriously through her dark sunglasses.]

I'm sure no one's guessed, but it's an important topic to me. In my world, the news, like everything else, changed radically during the summer of 2014 when the Rising happened. While mainstream newspapers and tv anchors were reporting that everything was fine and laughing about "hoax" zombie sightings, bloggers who took it upon themselves to figure out what was really happening. For bloggers, spreading the truth was more important than maintaining the rapidly deteriorating status quo. They risked their lives to learn how to deal with zombies, and they wrote everything down even while fighting off infection, so that more people could use what they'd learned to survive. They were the heroes of the Rising, and a big part of why we're still around.

The Rising ended over twenty years ago, but we never forgot. There's a reason I'm a blogger, and it's not because I couldn't get a job with a so-called "legitimate" newspaper if I'd tried. My generation trusts bloggers to tell the truth on their own terms, not to bow to the will of various outside powers with different agendas. That's what I'm here to bring. The truth, nothing but.

[She sits back. Her eyes are hidden behind her glasses, but her intense focus is clear anyway.]

But that's my world. I'm interested in hearing about yours. Internet, newspaper, hell, even if the best you've got is a town crier, you've got to get your news somehow. So tell me: what's your experience with the media?

It's something a bit like these devices. Isn't it?

[Turing looks at the screen with a pained expression. Hoo boy, how do they describe their experience with the media?]

I've had a more...hands on experience with the media, back in my world. There was...someone or something, that was changing news articles. Changing just a few of the words that would drastically change the tone of the article. ...well...

[...how should they explain what happened at the end of it?

'Oh yeah, and we were also stalked by a combat android the entire time.'

'Every newsperson we met died shortly after we talked to them by catastrophic means.'

'We had to call off the entire investigation on that route because we witnessed a guy we just questioned literally get hit by a manual truck.'

...
]

...afterwards, we had to call off that section of our investigation entirely, for our own sakes.

The newspapers in my world were totally controlled by the royal family until recently, so... The media was a load of shit for most'of my life. I mean, most of it was true, but they avoided the topics they really needed to be talking about.

Legit news media is fine. Sometimes even great, when Lois Lane is involved.

Unfortunately, more of my memorable experiences are with tabloids and paparazzi. And they are scumbags who make shit up and market it as truth with pretty edited pictures.

But I can't imagine that's so different from your world, either.

I mostly see news on TV, but there's some on the internet and in newspaper and stuff. So it's just the regular forms, I guess.

Although, there's an occult magazine I knew about that reported some pretty legit stuff at least once.

Do I assume that a blogger has to do with that internet I've been told about or is there something else I should learn about in communicating with others?

[Because so far he's been loving all that he's heard about such things, just as Newt delights in learning more and more how to use the device Wonderland gave them.]

We have the Daily Prophet which is a newspaper, written by the wizarding world. The muggle world has their own papers, and I know some in our world read them for the novelty of the muggle world.

I've found the prophet to be fairly informative. They did a good job in covering the war for those of us that weren't directly involved so at least there was that news, from both sides of the war, to be had.

I'm not much of a read or watch the news sorta girl, they're just as bad as the government when it comes to covering shit up.

[it's an argument she's had with Dolls before, that people deserve to know what threats are out there vs what would happen if too many people knew, what consequences might happen. other towns have been destroyed over it.]

I don't think they actually care about what's good for the general public at all.

we got newspapers, but they're mostly crosswords and such. mettaton does the news sometime, but that's mostly uh...mettaton-themed. we got internet, but its connection to the surface net is spotty. enough to get memes and such, which is the important thing.

[He shrugs.]

most surface news we get a few years late as it comes through the dump. the rest of it? well, monsters love gossip.

Motherfucking Galactic Federation censorship bullshit with their, their, pre-packaged televised bullshit, m-making China and Russia look good b-by comp-AAUURRRR-rison.

[Heeeey, George. Long time no chat. He's not sure where the two of you stand but he's gonna answer anyway. Even if it's a couple days later.]

There's some definite similarities between our world's news outlets, I think. Newspapers are a dying breed, radio's mostly for music, there's news sites and by blogs all over the place. A lot of information overload, and a lot of sensationalist media. There's so much coming in so many directions, it makes it hard to know which thing to follow or weed out the fake news and propaganda from the real stories.

Everything on our local channels in Central was....pretty sensationalist, I mean. You have people popping up with super powers for the last two years, crimes increasing in both number and severity, it gets crazy sometimes. [Only made all the more complicated when you have the added bonus of concealing identities on the team thrown into the mix.]
