    Indira Lakshmanan is so right in so many ways! I have been a working journalist since 1974, and a newspaper owner since 1996. I’m so sick of sensationalized coverage that I do not watch TV at all. Tell me the facts and move on. That’s all I want. I don’t need to see it and hear it 500 times. Media outlets do it because it sells for the same reason people rubber neck at the scene of a car accident. My newspaper does not publish car wreck photos. Consequently my readership is limited. What I have left over are the few intellects who read a paper to get the facts on a variety of issues. And soon my paper will die.
