And another thing that surprises me about news is that 99% of it is mostly crime stories and you see very few sports stories and happy stories on any news broadcast and I think the news should save the crime stories for the late night news broadcasts to make room for more interesting stories. Is this becoming a trend in news today?
Yes, people losing their loved ones and homes and businesses to a hurricane is obviously something not to make a big deal out of.
