Again, we agree more than disagree

But if you think the media is not going to repeat this, you are really naive.

They are trying to capture eyeballs for advertising. Everything is “breaking news” to try to entice the mentally vulnerable into believe what they are doing or “reporting” is important. I’d love for someone to do a study to say how long the banner on the bottom of CNN says breaking news per day. Is there REALLY that much breaking news?

There is hope however. I have a 24 and 21 year old. Both have told me that they realize that the media is part of the problem. Both have said they don’t take ANYONE at face value news wise.

Not sure how we have a revolution on the news gatherers but I would welcome some sort of standards....get the opinion talking heads a new channel....stop putting them on the news
