Someone asked me the other day what my news source were. My response was – none specifically. While I do listen to NPR and will watch CNN from time to time, I don’t really do either to get my “news”.
I think we have blurred the line between “news” and “opinion” to the point that we no longer know the difference. Most, if not all, of the 24 hour news channels that are in existence today are mostly spewing opinion shows – not actual news programs. To be fair, the channels don’t even claim to be News Programs / Shows.
Also, we don’t value real investigative reporting. I remember when 20/20 and 60 Minutes were shows everyone followed and spoke of.
