Do you remember back in the day, when there were 3 to 4 channels to choose from? Only three gave you the news. But that is what it was, the news. Mostly men, stating the news logically. But we've refreshed all these commentators, with vibrant young women, and with women you get opinion.

How about some good old fashioned news.

Why aren't there more women in civil engineering? We're always complaining about the roads.

Because attention means more viewers/listeners, whatever. The more "viewers" the higher the ratings, the higher the rating the more you are able to charge for each second of advertising ir lines of ads, whatever.
Need i follow that line of reasoning?
Thanks to the internet and technology the media operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week with THOUSANDS of media outlets all competing for attention. NO media outlet is going to let time, space, bandwidth go blank because no media means no attention, which means no ratings which means no advertising, which means NO FUCKING MONEY.
They would broadcast monkey shit-fights live from the zoo before they would pass up a chance to make more money.

C'mon, all these conservative, pro-capitalists out here and they don't understand BUSINESS???
In other words America and the people therein have chosen money over reality. We've sold out!
How long do you suppose this can possibly go on?

That's because the news was considered a public service by the networks at that time and as such was not expected to be a profit center.

America elected trump. The evangelicals have indicated God will use the sinner Trump to put more money in people's pockets, and therefore God is working out his will to MAGA through Trump.

What else needs to be said???
Thanks from Hollywood

As for God working through Trump?.....Quite possibly.

Don't place all the blame on the media. They "sold out" to the same thing we ALL did, greed & narrow self interest.
