Any questions?

I couldn't agree more. I am amazed at the lack of news on the "news." I have been TV free for 9 months and get all of my news via the internet and podcasts, but recently spend some time in front of my mum's TV. I was amazed that all of the news channels had stories about celebrates. On of them was actually being interview as a source for the news station. I would like this to change, but what scares me is that I believe that I am in the minority. Since the news is market driven, and this is how they do it, that makes me believe that it must be the way the market wants it.
