    That sums it up a lot better than I ever could. That's a smart dude or gal, whoever it was.

    It is like business really. A company gets so far and is earning loads but decides to cut corners out of greed. The media is cutting corners by not paying their reporters to get out there and find the truth. They are pair according to how fast they can pull a story out their backside. lol

    Somehow I think it's more than how well their reporters are paid, although that very well may be an aspect of it. I'm pretty sure some of them are paid quite nicely to write hit-pieces and slander/libel. I think a lot more of it has to do with how everyone is a pussy now and just wants vindication for what they think. The NPC/hivemind meme that was popular a few months back summed it up nicely. EVERYONE knows that certain news organizations are bullshit, but consume it anyway because it feels good. It's like booze or cigarettes, in a way. I don't think the general populace cares about the truth behind a story anymore, they want to see it through their own per-determined lens. This goes for all groups, by the way. It's a generational thing more so than a particular party or leaning, although we can all guess at which political leaning does this most often :^)

    TOO MUCH TRUTH

    I am sure they do earn a lot to put out trash and lies. Look at the celeb people who hunt down stars for pictures, they make a killing.

    I loved that NPC meme lol Yeah and I guess it does feel good to have people agreeing with you or saying things you like to hear even if it is utter bull. We all like to feel liked and accepted at the end of the day, some people are just more willing to sell out a lot more for it. I would rather have few friends I can trust than thousands I can't.
