People want the news, not opinion.I keep seeing "the media" being blamed for this. I don't get it. When I turn on the news I would like to be informed of what's the latest information on the virus problem. Lots of people want that too so they cater to the market instead of reporting stuff like the latest head count of the King penguin population in the Antarctic. If you were in the news, what would be reporting on? IF you were trying for a successful career? Covid, politics, and money is what's drawing the crowds right now.
I want to hear: "There's a bad wreck on I95 between a truck and car, at exit 12", NOT: "There's a bad wreck on I95 between a truck and a car, at exit 12. The car was driven by a stupid woman".
Like Joe Friday said, "Just the facts".
