    Is the news/media becoming entertainment for people?

    With the tragic chaos happening in Ferguson, the newscasters seemed bored, or distant...

    I certainly don't find it boring! Not that I like seeing the violence and disillusionment, but if it's happening I want to know about it.

      You bet! I want to know whats happening too! Truthfully. Just that when the media is there filming an assault, then film the getaway/chase not helping/stopping the assault. All for the "news". Thank you!  Waves!

    I think many sources of information are taken as news; Huffington post for example. Many people think Huffpost is a news source, but it's actually run by bloggers/journalists. Inevitably, plenty of non-newsworthy stuff creeps through.

    I'm often surprised at some things that make the news, so I guess one could say that it's quite possibly becoming entertainment, of sorts.

      I didn't know that about the Huffington post. The side "news" and the "cute" banter is boring most of the time. Gimme news! Thanks for your answer! Waves!

    The media is there to provide a place for advertisers to promote their various goods and services.

      Isn't it more than that? It just seems that the news is trying for a  sensational story rather that be informative. Thank you for your answer.
