Is News Entertainment?

Dear cable news Execs-- Somehow it seems that with this 24/7 constant barrage of "breaking news", almost always about one world crisis to another, you've allowed these stories to fill almost (like tv or movies), an "entertainment" function.
All day, everyday, an almost surreal amount of attention ad nauseum to these crisis.
What has happened to responsible reporting that doesn't have either reporters "on the scene" with cameras in the face of grieving Famalies, or asking one stupid question after another in the now infamous "gotcha" style.
Reality TV style tabloid style entertainment woven into what was once objective news. Throw in some social media, cameras everywhere technology & the result is mayhem-
Of course, the dilemma now is that you can't put this genie back in the bottle.
Hats off to those of you who have been able to teammate with your news reporting colleagues in this "dumbing down" of the American viewer -- Time to reasses!! Regards, Dr. Bob
