    I learned after 9-11 to not watch the news. New York was under Code Red for what, 5 years in a row.

    I do watch the news here and there, but once I turn it on, I scan. digest and turn it off.

    A journalist is a person who works in journalism to report the news. They may work on their own ("freelance") or for a newspaper, a radio or television programme. There are different kinds of journalists.

    A reporter is a type of journalist who researches, writes, and reports information. Newspaper reporters write news articles and stories for newspapers. They write these articles and stories by interviewing people, asking questions, and doing research.

    Reporters must tell the truth in their reports. Telling the truth is a very important part of all journalism jobs. Those who do not tell the truth may be punished like other workers who do not do their work. They can be suspended (do not work for a short time) or fired (losing their jobs).

    However, frequently news reporting does show bias instead of objectivity.

    And that’s the state of the news today.....

    The media used to report... now they try and control the narrative... and that dangerous...too many stupid people who believe anything they hear in the media and act accordingly.

    On,a side note... Florida went full to hell with Corona. Opened everything, banned no mask fines... and that with a reported 100 deaths a day.... will be interesting to watch..
    Is that a fact?

    BTW....if they have a choice between important stories and non important ones, I think the clicks factor is valid.

    Maybe some folks don't like stories because they differ from what they choose to believe. There are plenty of good journalists around.
