Controversy sells. If there's one thing I've learned over the years it's that the news media only gives the types of "news" that people want to hear; blood, gore, controversy, stuff that feeds peoples stereotypes, anti-government stuff, rumors, flat out lies and any other thing they can think of and make the story WAY exaggerated to the extreme. I have NEVER seen the media get a story 100% accurate and in many cases they are so off the mark it's laughable.
News media types can be some serious parasites and the average citizen believes NEARLY EVERYTHING they say or print.
P.S. I've banged a couple t.v. news girls and got my sweet revenge.
