Infotainment has replaced real hard news now in America for a few decades. One all news all the time radio station gives you thirty seconds around the world every hour!
Besides the pureeing of news into sound bites and love bites, there is the phenomenon of right winged news. Fox News has been the leader in forcing facts through the neo conservative strainer.
That is until arch conswervative pit bull Karl Rove joined the Fox team. Rove, a man who once crucified his own mother because her politics were left of Adolph Hitler has ironically become the voice of moderation at Fox. Rove, Bush's Brain once released from the vacant skull of the worst president ever had been roaming the earth in search of a host to occupy. Fox news proved to be the nature-abhorring vacuum that lured the roving incubus.
It is true that Rove has proved the moderate at Fox but that is only because the fascist news service reveres Mein Kampf, denies the Holocaust and has endorsed George Wallace's corpse for President in 2008!
