Try putting your ignorance aside for a moment & educate yourself on Hunter S. Thompson, as he is credited for ushering in this form of (so-called) "journalism" which has 110% taken over. Talking heads discussing their FEELINGS on extremely limited topics, passing for "news" became a thing long before Trump decided to run, therefore what you see on Fox Chat Channel and ALL modern commercial so-called "news" is Thompson's legacy on steroids. That anything on commercial TV is remotely considered "news" is proof of our WANT/need to be constantly entertained, as opposed to being remotely informed. Ignorance IS bliss.

Investigative Journalism died for good once IIRC Food Lion sued the Diane Sawyer report on the investigation of their relabeling/dating (old) meat. That was the nail in the coffin of real investigative journalist/reporting and even then, had they been an advertiser, it'd have been a no-go. Nothing but conflicts on interest all around, AND MERELY CHAT FILLER FOR the COMMERCIALS.

Control of msm started with the CFR in the 20s. Open up a history book.
One America News is the closest anyone will come to seeing news being reported via tv as they're not controlled by the CFR-advertisers. (Their short breaks are little history lessons/constitutional, so you probably won't like that.)

Now its ALL biased, slanted, half truths and full out lies. Its not news anymore. Its media. They aren't reporters anymore. They're writers. Journalist is a word of the past.

Seems the media is taking their clue from the brainiacs in hollywood - who, for some reason, we pay WAAAYY too much to for doing way too little. For every star - there's 100 more talented kids yet undiscovered - so why do we value these meatballs to the tune of millions of dollars for a few months work and allow them to purchase the media - formerly - the news?

WEll I don't know what happened to them but hubby started his career, out of college in the late 1950s as reporter and worked his way up. Eventually he went into speech writing and PR. He has said often times lately, he would be embarrassed to be a jounalist today.

The slipstream media is just playing to the stupidity of the American people.

So many people believe the lies and are so close minded about them that they just want these actors (not journalists) to feed their sick fantasies
