Good point Bob. That is one of the reasons Ayn Rand never appealed to me - everything was either black or white, no shades at all. Everyone looks for quick answers and having worked in broadcast news for 12 years (in my other life)you are 100% on the mark. Tell it fast, tell it first, worry about the details later - even though the reporting was supposed to be thoroughly checked first. Too often the real story is clouded by the facts.
