Who said life was fair...

Surfing around, and I happened on the July 12th entry from Rebecca's Pocket linking to an entry from "Radical Peace" entitled "Why isn't our media reporting the real news?" I mean, any idiot knows that the news is not THE NEWS, that they're not giving us facts and information anymore (if they ever were) and, if you think about it, it's probably not hard to come up with why they like entertaining us more than informing us. But why has it been relatively recent that this lying and cheating and newsfoolery has become so popular and widespread?

Well, there ain't no more fairness anymore! That's why. It stopped being an important thing in around 1988. Here's the actual act that said that tv and radio should give equal time to both sides of issues. Quite a valuable act if your crazy enough to think that living in reality is something useful. But whatever...

Well, they call it news stories for a reason. If it looks like nobody would care about some of the realities happening right now, well, fiction has always been a big seller.
