News With Substance
Substantive news: news that’s more than an inch deep and 4 miles wide; news that really affects your life; news about more than whose house burned down, who was shot during a fight, and which politician is on the take. I call it news with substance. And I don’t see a lot of it on television. I may be making a big mistake in believing that the public understands that present news coverage of nearly all events that really do affect our lives is so shallow that it is of no importance.
