I have been trying not to dwell on the daily media reports of America’s slide into chaos. However, cable and network news, talk radio and a parade of television commentators draw me like a duck to water. I, like so many others who were addicted to print media for hard news, now get more of my news electronically; and I get it live, in color, and with the spin to fit my mood by anticipating what my chosen commentator is going to say. With the “On Demand channel” I can even decide which version of the lead news story of the day I want to believe; all I need is the time to compare the commentators on the competing news channels.
