    I’ve
    done Mornings, Afternoons, TV, Film, Vh-1 and E!. I’ve been news director at a
    number of stations. I was also a TV anchor, reporter and writer.

    I concur Doctor. New is awful. People have a shorter attention span. It’s
    opinion, cocktail dresses and cleavage (on TV), quick bites. Because as one
    young person said to me once, “there are too many words”. Wow.

    My 84 yr. old mother sits in front of the TV watching Fox News (oxymoron) all
    day long. She tells me she’s “watching the news, I need to know what’s going on”. I say, “Mom, its
    opinion”.

    Its incredible frustrating.

    I know people are busy and many are overwhelmed with the pressures of life. But
    we have settled for garbage that may or may not be news.
