Money was always mysterious to me. As a child, the subject of money was only reserved for 'grown folks.' I knew that my father, a career officer in the United States Army, left home every day for some place called work. Still, I never knew how money was earned or how it affected my life.
It wasn't that the media 'got it wrong.' It was the the media itself that was wrong. The entire decrepit system, built on profit and ratings rather than ethics and accountability, proved to be a gigantic failure when it came to anything vaguely serious.

The big question for the future is: Will younger voters remain Democrats as they grow older or, when they become fogies, will they also become Republicans?
For whales, such as the great blue, who can communicate over thousands of miles, such sonic stress affects reproduction and communication so much that some whales simply stop vocalizing. What happens to our oceans when the whales stop singing?
There's nothing wrong with covering things people are interested in. Who are we to tell them they shouldn't be? The problem isn't with what TV news covers, it's with what it doesn't cover. Or doesn't cover nearly enough.
