I like your approach!.... there are many things that commercially produced news can definitely tell us... however expecting it to be devoid of spin, editorial slant, or memetic framing is nothing short of lunacy, expectations be damned... we should openly demand it. Eventually that message will supersede the entrenched stupidity of presumptuous elites framing reality for the masses.
I like to focus on their attributions and selection of 'expertise' to use on many issues... Compare and contrast.... it's one of those things our kids should practice in Kindergarten.

ETA: I don't really see much of a difference between state=sponsored and corporate-sponsored media these days either. And most are one or the other or both.

...Don't know how else to explain it. It frightens me that so many people seem unable to tell the difference.
