Welcome to the real world. All the news channel in the USA suck very bad.
They dont want to create controversy. They only wanty viewers watching so they can charge more for advertising. Television is entertainment. It is not there to teach anything unless you watch PBS and even then beware of what you choose to believe.
I found that watching international news can be more fruitful. Because here everyone wants to avoid a lawsuit. I mean why would they put any controversy about the 9/11 incident? It is better to let the population believe what the government says and end of story. No lawsuits. No death threats. No nothing. Business just as usual.
Here is another one for people who watch news. Dont you like how you hear about a murder in less than 30 seconds and then it gets switched to "hey! looks like a beautiful sunny day!". That is very screwed up. However, a news anchor or host dies and we get 5 days of mourning for him!! In many countries there is a respect in regards to some of the news where news anchors pay a certain respect or do a short point of view commentary because people feel. But here is all about business and moving on to keep viewers glued to the screen for ratings.
Personally, I find that the news in this country is like a slap to the intelligence of the viewers. We are not mindless cows.
In any case, that is just how news work here. Try seeing some international news, you might actually be more entertained and feel a better connection with reality. Yes, even BBC is better than CNN.
Good Luck. And hope you find other sources of news instead of what the crap is show in this country. So much for freedom of press.
