...Is the viewers!
When I think of reporting, I think of pressing issues. But there are millions of viewers who are constantly titillated with tales such as these:
I know, it's a damn shame. The stench of the homeless folk who slept on that bench clearly put Keanu off his meal. But that's not the only story that
broke lately; when most the population is concerned about jobs, the rising cost of living, and other such problems- BS TV leads the coverage with this
exclusive photo of a celebrity wardrobe malfunction:
You get the picture. But why do certain media outlets focus on the foibles on the rich and famous when there are more pressing issues? Because some
people want it. They need it. Anyone with half a brain can find an accredited source of information, but some people can't be bothered to find it, so
they are spoon fed whatever that is dished out to them.
Take my friend "T" for instance. He was sleeping on my couch and was a very early riser, so until I woke up he had control over the remote, but on
more than one occasion I awoke to find him watching what the local commercial program considered as 'news'. Less than a minute later their 'gossip
correspondent' was briefing us of all the celebrity gossip that occurred in the past twelve hours and had more air time than the news and weather
T is not exactly an oxford scholar, but still I asked him how he could watch this news when it clearly wasn't news. He didn't have an answer and
clearly didn't care, which is the type of person that the MSM panders to. Sure they aren't the most honest, professional, reliable or unbiased sources
out there, but they don't need to be when millions of people keep tuning in day after day, and I know of at least one person who has benefited from
We can all complain about how the MSM conducts itself and what it broadcasts, but it wouldn't be possible if no one was watching to start with. At the
end of the day who's the bigger fool-the fool, of the fools who follows him?
