GUEST,G BS: West Virginia Coal Miners Found - 1 Alive (72* d) RE: BS: West Virginia Coal Miners Found - 1 Alive 05 Jan 06

First, thanks to the Ladies here who manage to keep things in perspective and not attack other posters in a thread of this nature.

While some or even many will disagree with me, I think the media is the bane of our existance. I say this not because I think most are 'left leaning' but their handling of news. The "if it bleeds, it leads" attitude is oh so prevalent these days. I have a casual friend, I say causual because I could never get real close to him, who was among other things, the Manager of a news room for a major NBC-TV affiliate. He would just get a blank look on his face when we would discuss subjects other than 5 car pileups, murders, etc., that might be newsworthy. Lately I have noticed the lack of life experiences among many younger reporters (under 40) that to me have a tendency to distort the news. Has anyone here known a fairly recent graduate of a school of Journalism? I am not implying that it is anything to do with a level of intelligence, just the methodology.

katlaughing, they can be an embarrasment and hurtful as well at times. I just don't understand the uncanny (my impression) attitude most seem to have with their approach to drama, mostly the negative type.
