Where did the trust go?

Hmmm......seven articles about how much news room journalism is BS.......this should prove for an interesting response.....

Obviously, people in the world today are a lot less trusting then they used to be....it seems as if nobody believes anything anymore, but perhaps they shouldn't. After reading how much newscasters go through, just for the benefit of viewers...Well, I guess its not necessarily for just the benefit of viewers, it is also for the benefit of the station itself. Yet it is for the viewers benefit as well. Its a chain reaction, the newscasters play their parts to make the viewers happy and the viewers happiness is what make the news stations thrive. It reminds me of how dependent people are on each other, which is a really vivid topic to get into, so I will just let it be. The thing I don't get is, people understand what the news reporters are doing and they don't like or appreciate it, yet they still watch the frickin news......interesting.

That is interesting. I like your example of the "chain reaction," thats a good way to look at it. Why do you think that people still watch the news if they don't appreciate or like it as you mentioned?
