Cable “news” and “distraction”

My issues with this analysis are:

1. All cable information networks do this. Not just Fox. Not even just the “news” networks.

2. It’s a stretch to say the mislabeled “R-” and “D-” graphics are part of a larger conspiracy. They’re more likely a result of spending everything on talking heads and nothing on a qualified news staff.

Other than that, interesting ideas:
