Doomed to repeat it
News is not worth $2? I ask why? News is not the form of entertainment other videos provided I grant it, but it still is entertainment.This exemplifies the problem of today's society. We don't believe it is worth it to spend $2 to learn about important events yet we will spend hundreds of dollars to look cool or look like popular culture tells us we should. Embrace the news for those that don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
The Great Communicator
Rarely does history grace a common man the privilege of personifying an era, and yet, in times of crisis, watershed moments of history, certain leaders rise to answer the call of destiny and Providence directs their actions and guides them and their people into a new age. The Reagan Era occupies a place in history where a generation restored and renewed the hope of freedom in a world that so desperately needed it. To have access to these moments of history; the challenges and comforts of President Reagan for a $1.99 is money well spent!
This isn't the News!
Look! Does that say "NBC News May 29, 2006" ? No, these are News Specials. These aren't the "Today in Washington Bush... Ect." If you read what those videos are you will see they are specials that NBC did over something and showed it once. Read before you go off saying $2 isn't worth it. Maybe somebody liked the NBC news special on the Bird Flu and wants to put it on their iPod. If you are not one of those people, don't complain. Is Apple putting these here going to bring the world to an end? Geesh.
