(continued) it made me think of the arbitrariness of what we consider "news"
like, there is no way that this "reporting" -- an unknown person stabbed another unknown person for unknown reasons!! -- helps anybody be better-informed citizens.
"somebody was stabbed today" is reportable as news but "nobody was stabbed today" is not reportable as news.
yeah, the news is "biased" -- it's biased towards short-term disruptions of the status quo and away from history, context, or perspective
