Since the news media is profit based, does it hurt the credibility of news media programs?
Many people complain about the stories and occurrences covered by the news media these days. Nowadays, you will see people like Tiger Woods on the front page discussing their love lives and infidelity. Many individuals find it astonishing that Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and Paris Hilton’s nightly club misadventures are talked about on world news programs. The reason why you no longer hear about Britney, Paris, and Lindsay is because it now seems that they have settled down by staying out of the limelight. But soon there will be others here to take their place to consume the news headlines. With our 24 hour news cycles of repeating popular stories over and over again, many people feel that many stories are overlooked or not covered thoroughly.
