Navel Gazing Media

The perfect illustration of all that is wrong with the American media is how they react and respond to events like the Keith Olbermann affair.

They are treating themselves as a gossip column event, like any superficial celebrity or super model. Why are newsreaders, anchors, reporters, and news hosts considered "stars"? They no longer perform their news gathering and reporting functions. They have devolved into partisan hacks, and don't even pay lip service to any journalistic ethics.

Yet, the story is and remains about these clowns. We have three 24 hour news cable channels and why is there no room for NEWS? With all that is going on in the world, how is there any room on the air for this sort of twaddle? It is news as professional wrestling.
