Myself, I'm MUCH happier with the way "the news" is today (with competition by 
the Internet, etc) than 20 years ago.  I remember well how "the news media" 
misled the public with the Randy Weaver case, Waco, etc.  "The news media" 
wouldn't touch discussions about complaints by various women about Bill 
Clinton, UNTIL one of them filed a lawsuit in about 1996.  The next day, as if 
on cue, suddenly all the media began to talk about that case, as if they had 
suddenly become aware of what was going on...when everyone knew that they must 
have been already quite aware.Sure, some of today's 'information' is 'the 
chaff', rather than 'the wheat', but I'd rather have the opportunity to sift 
through ALL of the news, rather than let the MSM (mainstream media)  decide 
what little to show to us.
