What I hate about journalism is how easy it is to corrupt with garbage in the form of bias, inaccuracy, and just overall stupidity. What I hate even more would be how quickly people fall for such garbage. What I hate the most would be how modern day attention spans are so short and people tend to be so stupid that important events that should shake the playing field are forgotten about in less than a week and non-important ones are exaggerated and remembered years later. Some can say it is the news itself, which focusing more and more on worthless data while sliding important details in that stupid scrolling bar nobody reads at the bottom of the screen and oftentimes ignoring it entirely.
problems in America
The American obsession with money has been present throughout our history. The media — whether it be news networks like CNN or entertainment channels like MTV — teach our society that greed is good. We’re force-fed wealthy propaganda, seeing stories and advertisements for the “best cars”, “most expensive colognes and perfumes”, “great shoes”. People proudly show off their wealth on television, a nonstop wave of new-age Hollywood movies glorify the lifestyles of the elite men and women of America, and American politics have proven time and time again that money is behind anything. Then we have the dreaded Powerball lottery.
