Stay classy news. Stay Classy.
Pffff the news is more "Shock Value" than anything. Has been for a long time. They gotta go for the ratings. "Serious journalism" has become an oxymoron. I just wish they were forced to post retractions as big as the false information they post. If it's headlines, then the retraction should be in headlines, not buried on A16 or hidden in the crawl at the bottom of the screen.
