You may have noticed that President Obama addressed the nation yesterday in primetime. Something to do about immigration. Guess it directly impacts about ten million among us. Indirectly? How about everyone of us? And yet the so-called Big 3 networks were, well, rather small by not airing the address. Seems billions of dollars in profits just aren’t enough to spare less than a half-hour of air time for the country.
Even before this glaring grab for money CBS, NBC and ABC have been proving how limited a priority journalism is to them. Ever watch the evening news anymore? Notice how all of the networks magically end up with pretty much the same stories? Nothing like pack “journalism” and groupthink. Really…nothing.
