Mirror, mirror?

On the news today: The Royal Wedding. Obama Releases Birth Certificate. The Royal Wedding. Katie Couric Leaving CBS. The Royal Wedding. Trump Shows How Egomaniacal he is. The Royal Wedding.

Does the news media reflect the public’s interests, or does the public reflect the newsmedia? Is it a two-way conversation, or is it a two-way mirror, where we see what they are doing, but they don’t see what we are doing?

I am not sure, but I do think that what we see around us reflects a much larger problem–one where voyeurism and scandal dominate. And I don’t like it.
