I am one that likes to stay up on my current events. I try to read the local and globe news daily, and think it is important to stay informed. This week, I have felt the sensationalized media trying to blow something up and make it into the next big lead. There is no more planning all day to say the true important facts in the small time they have on the 5 o'clock news. Now it is an all day affair, and entire channel all day and so much more about ratings than reporting.
This article is the best one I have read that describes how I feel about the American news system.
