Every time a tragedy hits, the media outlets finds a way to turn our fear and hysteria into cold hard cash.

If these channels, websites, newspapers, etc. have the power to have the whole country up in arms in a matter of minutes, Why don't we hold them more accountable??

I mean, guys, this is information. This is how the country learns. We can't just approach this casually or we are going to keep reacting terribly when faced with a problem.

24/hr news coverage is trash b/c this allows them to grab our attention before they even figure out the full story (While they rake in ad revenue). Americans also probably need a break from the news, but that's much harder to do today.

These media outlets also literally don't have to compete with eachother (for better info, reporting, etc.) because every media entity is owned by one of 6 major conglomerates. (Disney, Comcast, Time Warner, Newscorp, Viacom, CBS).

The same networks that glamorize crime and violence are the same networks that we applaud every time they speak out about violence or show a shred of humility.

Every time a source is posted in a thread, someone says "(                  ) is a trash news source". That's because there are literally zero sources that are dependable and unbiased.

So can we all try to keep pushing for unity and stop tolerating these vultures that eat every time we're divided??

Social media is helping (and hurting in some ways).

I remember people in the middle east were able to stay informed and in touch without TV because twitter was a way around it. Like during the Arab Spring and whatever other recent events. The turkey coup is another example.
