Theory about what happened to "News" in TGLFKAO ...

==
Remember what happened in the election? Remember this map?

Image

The anti-Americans, the Statists, live and vote in the cities ... the pro-Americans those wanting freedom from Statists and such, live away from the cities ... so where are the news organizations? Answer - in the cities. The national "news" organizations are based in the cities. Yes there are local news organizations but many of those are owned by national groups, like Hearst, Tribune, Tegna, etc.

So, whether on purpose or not, much of the news is written or transmitted to use by groups of people of live in cities and tend to think like other people who live in cities. I used to think "the news is the mirror of the people" and that you could not "blame the news - media" ... you had to "blame the people". Now I realize the news - media is the mirror of the people - but only some of the people, mostly those who live in those dark blue counties on the map, which is NOT all the people.

That is one pillar of this theory of what happened to the news.

The other is more generic ... the search for "click bait" which is actually nothing new ... it used to be called ... "we need to sell newspapers" ... so click bait stores are just the new way that news stories are monetized.

Another one I check for less partisan bullshit injection and more straight-up news:


http://www.washingtontimes.com/


Their Op pieces tend to be conservative. But at least their news pieces don't have the constant shrill REEEEEE & projection of many MSM news outlets.

Giving up on "BBC" for awhile - they seem overly obsessed with themes that really don't concern them. Trying Sky News Australia for a while ... maybe the 9,700+ mile distance between Sydney and DC will put a damper on ideas of a similar obsession on their part. So far looking much more like "News".

Washington times content is ok, but the ads drive me crazy ... reminds me of fox ... too many ads flying around and soft porn click bait, etc.

Can't we have NEWS without all that!? :D

News doesn't grow on trees. It costs money to manufacture the News! :P

This map is a demographic representarion of the U.S. The blue spots represent high concentrations of blacks, illegal immigrants, or super rich liberals.

The only exceptions seem to be Vermont and New Hampshire, where the population seems to be exceptionally stupid.

Well, after dumping reuters ... they were a little more laid back than CNN ... I tried New York Post for a while ...

Now realize, in the ooosah ... there is no "news" ... just primates makin' sh^t up to get clicks ...

==
I give up on USA based "news" sources ... there is none-such ...

maybe there never was anywhere ...
