The "news" is seldom news anymore. It is more likely to be someone's opinion of what is happening. Sometimes it is an interpretation, as when a newscaster tells you what someone is saying, while in the background you see that person's lips moving, saying things you can't hear for yourself. Sometimes it devolves into a discussion between people not necessarily qualified to be authorities on what they are discussing, thus producing in-depth studies of shallow thoughts. I would just like to see and hear the news, and make up my own mind as to what it means.
