Give ‘Em What They Want

It’s telling what makes the cut as lead story on the evening news. Until the dueling headlines of Michael Cohen on Capitol Hill and Trump’s meeting in Hanoi with his good buddy and ol’ pal Kim Jong Un, we were treated to Robert Kraft and R. Kelly sex scandals as “breaking news.”

One might reasonably think that there is more newsworthy stuff to lead with. But the networks do their demographic studies, and this is what we want to see, apparently, along with an endless parade of pharmaceutical advertisements for drugs and their interminable lists of cringe-worthy side effects.
