No News is good?

Is anyone old enough to remember when the news was boring almost every day? There could be almost nothing important happening for days, weeks, or even months at a time. A time when there wasn't liberal news or conservative news, but just news. A supposedly honest account without slant, where real journalists were concerned with providing a public service and a check on the government.

Now the news seems to be an entertainment/business affair. Supermodels now give us the news.
No longer is the news the 4th estate. At best it's the blogsphere. Now I have to view several news sources to hopefully get the real story.

Now we have a bailout package situation which NO ONE truly understands, regardless of what they pretend. It's basically a desperate hail-Mary pass to stop the economy from collapsing. It reveals that the world is really put together with spit-and-polish and is composed of people who really don't have a clue what's going on. It's amazing everything hasn't flown apart sooner.
