News In America
TV News in America is basically controlled by six corporations; ABC, CBS News, CNN, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, NBC News. The print media is dominated by the New York Times
Los Angeles Times, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal. Opinion radio is another factor in shaping the perception of the truth, but for the most part people in the USA work too hard to read a newspaper and after work want an escape from the grind rather than watch the sad tales of woe on the 6 0'Clock News.
Today is Sunday.
The day of rest.
People wake up to go to church. They have a big breakfast, then go out with their family or watch football in preparation for the five-day work week.
Judging from Yahoo News hot ten topics few are interested in the real world with the lead off story about Wal-Mart apologizing for banning a choir from singing GOD BLESS AMERICA at an outlet on 9/11. Mitt Romney was quick to mention that American corporations should never apologize to anyone.
Here's Yahoo list
01 Wal-Mart apologizes
02 Kate Middleton photo scandal
03 Kim Kardashian
04 Gay marriage
05 PB&J ban
06 Prince Harry's birthday
07 Joaquin Phoenix
10 Gas prices
Holy Cow! An Arkansas school has banned peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
I hope that CBS has that covered by a real reporter.
Everyone who isn't middle class eats PB&Js.
