Before Thu, 10 Feb 2005 17:52 -0600, A bunch of people wrote some stuff.

The media sells attention. They first have to harvest your attention
and package it in saleable blocks. This is accomplished through
sensationalism and 23 minute recycled mini-plots. Individual
reporters may be ethical. Corporations which pay reporters likely are
not. I fail to see that any of this is news to most of you, but it
never fails to surprise at least a few every time it comes up in
