The media are dumbing down what is presented to readers and viewers to the extent that I'd argue it's bordering on criminal.
When did media journalism go so postmodern on us? Ah, but facts are so boring; "optics" and "narratives" are much cooler. At least in literature class, we learned to analyze and deconstruct the text.

News of John McLaughlin's death last week took me back twenty-seven years to the time when he moderated A Matter of Life and Death, a TV show that Ward Sylvester and I produced that was seen by large audiences in more than 200 television markets.
