There are occasional attempts by modern mainstream media but generally it seems more likely to be about ratings than news. Don't believe me? Ask Barbara Walters about how her interviews of world leaders were steadily directed to become more and more about celebrities for ratings. She went from interviewing Moammar Gadhafi to interviewing Oprah.

No the scandal is not in Benghazi or the IRS or AP having phone records taken or any other imagined scandal on the left or right. The scandal is the failure of Congress to do their job for the people. The scandal is no one challenges these factually challenged elected officials about their lies and talking from both sides of their mouths. The scandal is that our news is more interested in what Clint Eastwood or George Clooney or Brangelina are doing.
I miss the most trusted man in America. I miss Walter.
