Media needs a new tiger

This article shows how the media is constantly looking for the next big story and thrives on controversy. The media has no friends or boundaries, and will go for whatever story they feel they can make money off of. I feel the media uses a push and pull technique in order to keep up ratings. They love to tell the story of a person’s achievements, but then love to slowly watch their demise. Not to mention once the person has hit rock bottom, there is always room for a story of a comeback.
