the amount of stupidity that is perpetuated by the news media, its hard not to take it seriously, they indulge in editorialization ad nauseum, to me whats going on in Gaza, BF4 level (j/k) but still, you kinda get the drift, its so dumbed down as well, people pointing fingers, no facts just conjecture, its a sad state of affairs...........

I think the main problem with the news is it isn't on long enough. You get what five minutes max of coverage about one topic? That is no where near enough time to talk about a subject important enough to be news worthy. Even the so called "news" channels only talk about one subject for a max of ten minutes.

Glad I haven't been drinking. Just had to do a pee test and breathalyzer. This will be the last time I drive that crane across the street, under power lines, through 2 gates and teetering the whole time bc you have the boom all the way out.

You could say that the internet is the root cause of the ****ty news coverage nowadays. Before the instant gratification of the internet we got our news from news papers and the nightly news. There was time to collect data and fact check before informing the world. Now it simply comes down to who can get the story out to the world first, regardless of whether or not the data is correct. They can just re-run a "Breaking News Update"

It's worth the tradeoff, IMO. Back then the news was in the hands of a very few gatekeepers - the newspaper and nightly news program editors. You got to hear what they thought you should hear, in the way they thought you should hear it. The internet took away that ability. You have to do some of your own leg work now, but in exchange you get to bypass the filter and be your own editor.

Once upon a time, though, the media worked for the truth. Now, they work for an agenda that has nothing to do with the truth, no matter which side of an issue they fall on.

Arguably it was actually worse in the 1800's, the golden age of yellow journalism. People have this kind of idealized view of how the news used to be. A lot of that image is an illusion created by the newsmen who didn't relish losing their deified status.
