Might just investigate a little too far and then it actually would cost money.

Look at who owns the bulk of our media outlets.

No way do they want any real news getting out there.

Active obfuscation, and if something really important has to be told, save it for the late news on a Friday.

Much like major fiscal spliff decisions by nongress get put off until new year's eve.

Nope sure don't. When you start looking at the subsidiaries and who sits on what board, it becomes real clear.

So pathetic isn't it?

another reason not to watch TV

I don't think anyone can get 'just' a degree in journalism anymore. Most schools refer to it as ' media studies' or something like that and from what I've heard, the focus is more on entertainment.

"media studies"

that would make sense....pretty sure journalism majors have a code of ethics that noone on the news these days seems to follow....maybe they all went to school for media studies.

It is pathetic.

Holy Shit. Executive Pay & Benefits have risen so much in the News and Media business they don't have reporters any more at CNN.
