    How many others think that it's "the job" of MSM to "get more eyes watching"?

    I mean, sure, there's no doubt it's all about the ratings game, but is that "their job", as opposed to honest hard investigative reporting?

      CNN and Fox News are especially egregious about focusing on celebrity news. (And I'll admit that I turn first to the sports page of the paper.)

      I don't want to sound arrogant about talking about what people "should" be interested in... but a lot of topics require a good deal of nuance and background information that simply aren't going to translate well into bite size pieces.

        The problem with the MSM (on all sides of the political spectrum) is too many of them are wanting to make the news instead of reporting it.

            You mean, stop posting threads about fringe media?
