across this brilliant quote by Dr. David Yeagley:
The news is a mindless misanthrope of culture,
a plodding mesh of kaleidoscopic relativism.
Outrage is worn out, and the outrageous becomes
normal. The masses become numb. The media, a
competitive business, leads inevitably downward.
There is no standard of value, nor consistency
in presentation. It's all about selling interest
and excitement. The industry must sell news.
Ratings are all that really matter. The media
seeks the greatest number of consumers. Thus the
herds become hordes, and dollars demigods. Beware
Damn. Is that dead on, or what?
