That is for sure, All they care about is getting people to watch whatever they put on the air so they can get more advertisers. so you can watch more commercials & adsI lost faith in the news media over 40 years ago when I saw from the inside how they try to manipulate events rather than report them.
Seconded. What good is someone competent at English writing working for a newspaper? The articles need to be written at a 6th grade level for the masses to understand it. Most people don't ever advance beyond a 6th grade reading comprehension level. If they wrote at a 12th grade level the mass majority couldn't read the newspaper!Ability to write, an understanding of the English language and knowledge of the subject matter ARE NOT (and have not been for a long time) requirements for being a news reporter.
