My comment to a Green Knight post re: the cluelessness of the MSM.

It is totally market driven. There's only so much bad news people will digest before their attention shuts down. Especially if the bad news is "by the way, the Americans are the bad guys in this movie".
The real tragedy is the self-fufilling nature of it. With the media only telling people what they want to hear, there's no room to actually LEARN anything.
