Eh, yeah the recent trial hubbub felt pretty fabricated.
The news isn't really the "news" anymore. What I mean by that is they're just going to cover extremely basic and easy to digest things. They will cover good vs evil stories. This woman is bad, and she must be in jail. This man is a horrible rapist, and he must be in jail, and we must cover everything possible to wring coverage out of all the victims and innocents.
Essentially, the news channels you get on your TV now are just soft-tabloid channels. You won't really be getting informed about anything worthwhile anymore. The media have kind of chosen to give up their role in American culture as something that matters.
