I found this interesting. Media is in the business of marketing news not reporting.

UNPACKING THE RACIALLY-CHARGED TERM “SUPERPREDATORS”

They assert that the media not only shapes popular notions of and about crime, but it also perpetuates criminal stereotypes. On top of this, the media often attempts to imbue the story with something exciting for viewers. “While drawing on racial stereotypes in reporting incidents of crime, the media also resorts to sensationalism whereby so-called new forms of menace are invented and commodified for public consumption.”

Welch, Price, and Yankey’s study specifically analyzed the history of the term “wilding,” from its invention in 1989 (as the media used it to describe the five accused perpetrators of the now infamous “Central Park jogger” case), traced through its usage until 1998. They describe how the press invented the term to sensationalize the story of the brutal rape of a white Central Park jogger. “Taken further, many ‘new’ types of lawlessness are invented, or mediated, along lines of race, conjuring threatening images of young black men as villains.”

True. The media wants to get your attention so they will hype the drama. For example, national crime rates are down, but they don't want to tell you that because you will stop watching.

I got in a huge twitter fight with Chris Spears. He posted a picture of some crazy snow totals that looked like a forecast it was a model that is not very reliable. I told him so and he was a jerk about it. I found it totally unprofessional. This is what they do. But seriously the media cries and whines about not being able to make money. They have totally alienated half of the population.

Goodbye CBS YOU SUCK

It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress, yesterday, was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted.

Too many leaders, and political commentators, who set an example for us to follow, have led us into an abyss of violent rhetoric which, it should be no surprise, has led to violence.

What a POS. These people are mostly worthless political hacks who were taught to be hacks by other hacks. Would it be predictable and foreseeable if journalists started to be targets since they are responsible for much of the division in this country?

The media have completely stopped all real reporting to save money and they don't do any homework anymore. The whole thing is embarrassing.

NO ONE EVER DESERVES TO BE SHOT IN THIS COUNTRY NO ONE INCLUDING MINORITIES, MUSLIMS, OR EVEN RACISTS, ETC. EXCEPT FOR SELF DEFENSE THAT IS IT. SHOULD YOU SHOOT SOMEONE FOR THEIR BELIEFS MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL.

They do exactly what politicians do, they capture and hold their target audience and keep them fed with the bullshit they want to hear. I think there would be a huge appetite for a network or newspaper that was all about finding facts and reporting all sides without taking sides. Pissing off both sides with facts would be pretty refreshing, I just don't know why it hasn't happened.
