I come from a generation that vividly recalls how impressive and decorous news anchors once were. The current lot merely voices the words of their masters. News reporting is biased. Debate panelists do foolish things and indulge in ridiculous shenanigans that deter gainsay. Editorials are evidence of brain dump of vacuous minds. Sensible prime-time reporting is now a dream.
Is there a point to my rant?
Well, I’m just overcoming a minor writer’s block, have word prompts to cover, and more importantly, have become old and cranky I suppose!
