    This is the absolute truth.

    In fact, if they didn't have to put in any news at all, they wouldn't. But of course, who would buy and read a newspaper if it were all advertisements? And who would turn on a t.v. show if it had no content, just ads? But really, the "news" content is there simply to get you to watch the ads. The more titillating it is (and as a result the less true and accurate, because the truth is usually boring) the more people will want to watch it. The more that the statistics can show are watching, the more advertisers want to put their product out before them, which makes the producers tons of money.

    It's a sick game, and the casualty is the notion that we are watching true news.

    At times one can find more truth in the National Inquirer then on TV or in local newspapers.
