THE MYTH OF NEWS...WHERE IS THE REAL NEWS?

Desperation for a story AND THE NEWS CYCLE!, I think that when I read the headlines across the country they are almost copies of one another.
Lets see some investigative journalism for a change.
News these days is often quoting what commentators say, who are the commentators, guess who, other journalists.
Without Rudd they are at a loss for stories,there are other stories and other parties guys.
Real news does not exist as often as you would like us to believe.
When was the last time we heard of something local, are there no local stories from around the country any more.
We don't see anything different between news providers, we have ten versions of the same interview, often a complete repeat of the interview, yet in the lead up we are told this is exclusive, what rubbish, there are very few exclusives these days.
Because stories are to easy to copy and also investigative reporting is expensive and time consuming.
It's all about the news cycle, quality is no longer important, if they must stick an advert disguised as news in a bulletin to fill the cycle, who cares.
These journalist are probably crying out to do real work, it will not happen, the dollar rules.


ENJOY THE NEWS
OR
 JUST DON'T TRUST IT ANY MORE?
LOST SENSE OF SMELL....WHERE IS IT?
I USED TO HAVE ONE ONCE
NOW I CAN'T AFFORD IT!
