    to the system of news media we have.
      It's been all consolidated under major corporations who are only interested in profit. How do you get high profits out of news? Sensationalism.
       Something to scare, entertain, and keep people from switching a channel for 5 more seconds.

     Actual journalism requires putting money up front with an uncertain outcome. And when you do get results, they are often complicated and require several minutes to explain.
      This is unacceptable to marketing and sales people.

      And now, with journalism nothing but a joke, the public no longer takes it seriously, and the MSM reacts with disdain rather than introspective. What a surprise.
