They don't proof read or necessarily even grasp what they read, their mouth is off & running before their brain in gear. You got a bunch of people in a trailer somewhere typing anything they can think of into computers & what comes up goes out & is read.


That only defers the blame elsewhere. It speaks nothing regarding an acknowledgement that agenda promotion (news making) is being pandered off as news (news reporting).

Come on Larry, it only takes a week or so of watching the news to figure that one out :( That "pandering" will never be acknowledged for what it is--clear & utter BS for the most part--what brings in the ratings--nobody gives a crap anymore whether or not it is true. :mad3:

Or as the socialists (following in the footsteps of that original great Chicago Community Organizer, Saul Alinsky) are prone to say: "Never let a good crisis go to waste!"
