Default The Death Of Real News! Meh....

Ted Koppel: Olbermann, O'Reilly and the death of real news

I'm surprised by the author's claim, since we've more readily accessible quantity & diversity of news sources than ever before. The article's
title seems to be more calculated hyperbole than actual fact. If anything, it could be called "The Growth Of Entertorializing". There's big bux
in presenting news with a spin designed to get the blood boiling, & it's always been that way here. Has it intensified? That would be a hard
thing to measure. But one difference from historical agenda laden news is that exposure to it is greatly increased. Let's not bemoan the death
of real news....let's just be careful & skeptical consumers of the news we see. Remember that everyone is trying to sell you something,
especially the ones who say they aren't.

Not that I was aware of. I agree with you if anything, today is the golden age of information. Sure, there is a lot of disinformation and manipulation -- but there is way more legitimacy in the alternative sources.

Truly, the skeptical reader lives in a wonderful age....& it will get even better.
If I could combine 2 of the great achievements of Western civilization, it would be called "Wikiteria".

I think I'm coming to conclusion that people really are just always ******, regardless the situation. If anything socially wonderful happens, I don't think it will have a singular cause. History within a decade is even enough to occupy a few men's lifetimes.
