Much Ado About Rating

In matters of "Life" and "Death", media sometimes bombarded the airwaves with “news” for the wrong reason.

In UK, they broadcasted trivialities and inanities while biding their time. Enthusiastically acting like Thumper and his siblings, while awaiting the birth of Bambi.

Across the continent, they hover around like vultures, not to sympathize on the well-being of a great man, but to be the first to break the news of his demise. 

"If people in the media cannot decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and chose their news sources accordingly." – Thomas Sowell
