How the media tries to make it’s own story

with one comment

Something that I have noticed in all media is that reports try to force stories. Great example this weekend in sports … Terrel Owens breaks his streak of 180 + games with at least one catch. The media brings him to a press conference and tries to get him to be “TO” and bash his team and his quarterback. They even attempt to put words in his mouth and purposely egg him on! Isn’t that crossing a moral line? They’re trying to make news instead of reporting it… thats what it seems like
