WHAT MOTIVATES MOST PEOPLE?
IS IT NOTORIETY AT ANY COST? PT 2.
Of Course, We can't Blame the Traditional News Media, and the Lack of Professionalism and Objectivity that seems to Pervade the Medium, for every Example of a Dubious and Frivolous Story that hits the Airways.
News Programming, in All it's Forms, is not Uniform in Nature. The Level of Safeguards and Precautions set in place to Avoid Incorrect, Invalid, or Irrational News Items can Differ greatly.
These EDITORIAL STANDARDS can Vary Greatly, From Channel to Channel, or Network to Network. Unfortunately, it seems that Most Viewers do not Understand the Degree to Which some News Outlets place on Entertainment Value, at the Price of Veracity, Importance, and Quality. What is Really Tragic, it seems like the Entertainment Emphasized News Shows represent the Majority of the Options currently Available to Those Tuning In. The Result, as I Mentioned in PT 1, are Offerings that seem Interchangeable and Identical in Format and Content.
So what does This Tell Us about Individuals and Groups that seek News and Media Coverage to Promote Themselves, or a Particular Agenda?
