    It's fabulous, if you haven't seen it.

    But it obviously has no breaking news.
    I'll check it out. Thanks.

    Found this interesting piece off their favorite media list for 2016.... NPR quality report.

    But building a better playlist is harder than it might seem. The algorithm that can judge the merits of new Gucci Mane, or intuit that you want to sing “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton in the shower, has yet to be written. Until that day comes, the job has fallen to an elite class of veteran music nerds — fewer than 100 working full-time at either Apple, Google, or Spotify — who are responsible for assembling, naming, and updating nearly every commute, dinner party, or TGIF playlist on your phone.

    It's not your imagination: Study finds Trump coverage overwhelmingly negative | Fox News

    In other breaking news, a decided slant is blatantly present in US media coverage of ISIS. Cancer also gets poor reviews in our mainstream media.

    What has happened to the concept of Fair & Balanced coverage?

    Buzz feed could eventually be a decent news outlet, odd as it would be to read about war and watch LOLcat videos at the same place.

    It isn't now, IMO. Too uneven, for one thing.

    But frankly, Google News is best if you just want to be altered to today's big stories

    The Fairness doctrine (which only applied to tv) never addressed the problem of over-saturation.

    TV news routinely carried one story at the top of the hour for days, weeks, months.

    The Vietnam war was literally on every news broadcast after Kennedy died, if not before.

    1968 to 1975, day after day, it was the "breaking news".

    Many think that tactic was a big factor in ending the war as soon as we did.
