It sounds more like you want the wording changed to suit you better rather than there being an actual problem with it.

It's so much easier to blame me for wanting something that suits me than it is to blame the actual problem in the debate topic, isn't it?

If you want me to debate actual "national newspapers", I am more than happy to debate how fucking NO ONE wants to read newspapers in their physical form anymore because society is switching to digital media. Physical newspapers are DYING. So why the fuck would they not want to print sensationalist kind of news that will get dumb mother fuckers to buy their shit?

If you want to make this about the news, then make it about the news. If you want to make it about the dying newspaper industry, then make it about that. The way the topic is phrased fucks the two together and makes for a shitty debate topic.

Re: TDL XVIII: THE POINT WAGG LOST INTEREST AT - THE CARD

if not with newspapers I think theres at least a problem with 'national', cos I dont know where the debaters are from but if theyre from 4 different countries then its potentially 4 different questions. Papers in the US dont affect the culture as much as they do in the UK for example, I know thats not the actual question but it would play into how Id answer it if it was my debate.

Re: TDL XVIII: THE POINT WAGG LOST INTEREST AT - THE CARD

You can fuck off with that attitude. If there's an actual problem with the topic that means it can't be argued then I'll change it but it sounds like you're just whining because it's something you don't really want to debate.

Edit: Fair point with the national part Hanoi and I can drop that part of the phrasing. Still to see Tater argue his side like that though.

My apologies. I think maybe I just curse too much.

Extract my cursing and I still have a valid point.

I simply want this topic to be about ALL news reporting and not just about "national newspapers" reporting.

Yeah we don't change topics based on what you WANT. If it NEEDS to be changed then it's a different matter.

Re: TDL XVIII: THE POINT WAGG LOST INTEREST AT - THE CARD

We often have debates spilling over into the results thread, now we've got them kicking off before the debates are even in.

LET'S GO TATER

TATER SUCKS

Well then, let's hear what some other people think.

I think this topic should about ALL news media. I think making it about "national newspapers" extremely limits the topic. I think making it only about national newspapers makes this a shitty and limited topic.

Anyone else wanna weigh in on this?

If you wanna make this a shitty limited physical newspaper topic, then that is what I will debate. Forgive me for thinking this topic should be so much greater than it is actually phrased.

Re: TDL XVIII: THE POINT WAGG LOST INTEREST AT - THE CARD

Even you were making a case for it needing changing (you're not which doesn't bode well for how well you're gonna do with the actual debate anyway) you're not getting anything with that self-entitled attitude. Now if you actually made a case yourself for why it needed changing like Hanoi did for you regarding the national part then maybe you'd get somewhere rather than relying on other people to make the argument for you because you're not capable of showing me why it NEEDS to be changed yourself rather than just "I want it to be changed". Everyone gets the odd topic they're not overjoyed with.
