    5 stars for accuracy, a thumbs down for the emphasized propaganda of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land's media industrial complex. When was the last time news was a function of TV news ?

    I have seen the inner workings of the local television and radio stations as my family worked in those fields when I was younger. Without bad news, it is hard to keep viewers/listeners interested. That is why most 'news' has a component of fear -- it sells. I agree with Mike, 'news' today is to maintain the "statist theocracy's" hold upon the hearts and minds of its subjects.
