Today’s Mainstream Media in One Image

CNN's Bieber obsession

This comes from Google News. Luckily, pressing the arrows brings along other outlets, some major, some smaller; all of whom have more interesting and informative coverage than CNN at the moment. Sigh.

    I think the problem here is not the content but the expectation. The media is about entertainment. You just tuned into the wrong level of entertainment by mistake (too low brow) and think it’s the media that is broken. The media understand humans better than any group on the planet – we can learn a lot from them.

      Media outlets like CNN used to be about *news*…

      There used to be an ‘entertainment’ section, now perhaps it is about entertainment and you can dig around for a ‘news’ section. Last I heard this is more a sign of their desperation to stay afloat than any sign of insight into the human condition.

      Then again, CNN and others are *owned* by entertainment companies, so perhaps you’re right. Ugh.

        *News is entertainment*.

        Always has been.

    We are always more intrigued by evil than by good. Is it so that we can feel better about ourselves in comparison?
