The saddest thing has happened to news when Jon Stewart is voted the most trustworthy news anchor. (He is)
We have given way to sensational coverage that diverts us from the real. Balloon Boy and Tiger Woods affairs. All the things good and bad the government does gets ignored and lied about. The beautiful things that we do get ignored and we see "birthers" and all this garbage.
And with the pending death of newspapers all this online media and blogs (hehe) are just making it worse. One blogger says something silly and it gets picked up by a "news" organization then spread out like its important. Andy Warhol Mao is make up Christmas ornament means that Obama loves Mao. Sigh, this stuff makes my sick.
I don't foresee it getting any better. Even the BBC has a better news show then anything we produce, it actually has information that matters! We talk about Jon and Kate when the students in Iran are being killed and arrested.
