That’s Entertainment

24 hour news services…

As the world gets smaller does that mean that all news becomes local?  Do I really care about a traffic accident that’s happened 3000 miles away?  No, not really, not me.  But the 24 hour news channels have to fill time somehow.  So we see the sensational, and they ask us to vote on which story we want to hear about.  Really?  I thought the news director was supposed to make those decisions. Why did they even bother with journalism in college? 

And the polical opinion shows, we should limit them to one episode a day.  If there is one thing that has caused us to become so polarized I think it can be pinpoited to that.  Objectivity has given way to ratings, and that’s entertainment.
