Is It News?

I like to read the news, first thing in the morning.

What riles me is the amount of comment that is reported as news.

I know, news media need stories to attract readers and there are many days when there just isn't any news...

So, the he said/she said phenomenon takes over.

On an average day, 80% of so called news is just people expressing opinions, especially (God help us) actors expressing opinions.

And then there's the journalists opinion columns, which we need to pay a subcription to read.
I know, these guys need to make a living too.
But, I have opinions as does everybody else and they are free to anyone who wants to read them...

Is this article news to anyone?
