Why Cable News Is Bad

They Do Not Cover Real News 
Unless You Call Murder Trials, Celebrity Bad Behavior, and Political Fantasy as "News"

The cable news networks have found out it is a lot cheaper to hire talking heads who blather about politics than real newsmen in the field who report on real events.

Let us not even mention the expense of hiring investigative news teams which may or may not pay off with a good story which will only piss off their sources, purchasers of advertising time, and owners in the politico-business community anyway. There is no upside to that.

But here is upside. There is a lot more bang for the buck, so to speak,  for television news executives to hire long legged babe newsreaders to prance around the office looking good.
