How screwed up is the news. NBC Nightly News...?

Headlines are Steven Tyler and Jlo are leaving American Idol.... 15 minutes into the news... Sun sends off solar storms that could cause global power outages..GPS failures across the world. I think something is wrong here.

    Any "news" you get for free is not news, it's propaganda and infotainment. It is given by powerful corporate entities who never report on news that is detrimental to their own corporate bottom line, just like how all the news entities, CNN, FOX, MSNBC, etc. all ignored SOPA and PIPA until wikipedia and Google blacked out in protest of it and then the American public got super pissed about it and made a fuss and then they begrudgingly covered it a little bit, but only enough so they wouldn't look foolish. They downplayed it and ignored it as much as they could. That's because the organizations that own those news channels also own record companies and movie studios and are in a financial position where they will gain greatly if a bill like SOPA or PIPA is passed, so those corporate interests corrupt the news and make them not report on stories that are detrimental to their bottom line.

    Like I said, news that is free is not news, it's merely the illusion of news. It's merely infotainment.
