We’ve discussed in class a few times how poorly 24 News Channels, like CNN, cover big news stories and partake in Political Debate. CNN is not the only channel that has this problem, it seems that most do. NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox vie each and every night to be the news that the public ingests, not for the news itself, but for the messages that the network wants to send out. When the owners and CEO’s of these corporations’ mindset isn’t public interest, how can any of them be a good source of our news?
Advertisers and Public Relations have so much to do with what we see on Television, even the opinions of the so-called “experts” can be linked to the top of the hierarchy of the network. It’s no wonder that there is so much chaos in the nation about every single important issue. Is there any way we can fix this? This has been going on for so long that I don’t know if it can, at least not any time soon. Today’s society is a mold that has been in place for almost 100 years. It’s going to be hard to fix.
