    distractions like Paris Hilton got busted for cocaine in Las Vegas and received special treatment by the cops OR Lindsay Lohan cried at her sentencing and was able to get a new, lenient "judge" to resentence her to nothing OR some other stupid shit non-event.

    Meanwhile, the "news" media outright lies about some things because fact checking is an unnecessary expense that hurts the bottom line.

    They also make sweetheart deals with government to exclusively cover selected events like NBC did with the withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq.  Journalists have become corporate tools.

    Walter Cronkite, et. al. are having fits in Heaven about the way these so-called journalists are practicing their craft.  Prostitutes have more honor and integrity.

    News is now entertainment to generate revenue when before Nixon it was once a financial loss to media corporations.  

    Money Talks!  And that's the way it is!

      put a huge red light above their anchor
      desk and they are already sitting there like they are on the View.  It is not journalism.  It needs to be done away with and we are the only ones who can hit their pocketbooks.  Ratings go down and they HAVE to relearn the trade or get out of the business.
