The news industry through all its splendor and mass media forms is not your friend; in this order, it thrives on RATINGS, advertisers, self-interest [i.e., hidden agendas, industry specific promotions, etc.] corporate interests, government influence, special interest groups, flunkies, capitalists and other opportunists that helps to keep it viable in a highly competitive 21st century environment. Remember, we are a part of the mechanics that drives the industry’s bottom line, essentially a dormant news story waiting to happen. If you appear before the monster as food then it has no problem eating you, dead or alive.
Question remains: Why keep showing up as food?
