Credibilty Shmedibility

CNN has once again proven the viability of TV news with their report on a Bigfoot discovery in Georgia.

Not that Georgia, the other Georgia.

This all goes to support my claim that in the future there will be no news, only blogs. TV news is driven by ratings, so they tend towards sensationalism. This is why CNN is looking more and more like the National Enquirer these days.

The only thing newsrooms have that the laity don't is access, and the key to keeping that access is to not speak truth to power, it seems, or even to anyone.

I think more and more people will be turning to news blogs for up-to-the-minute info and turning their TV's off.
