in the past 3 decades, how has the role of profit changed the reporting of the news? when did this shift begin?

  • Social Studies -

    Competition has gotten much stiffer with the proliferation of so many TV channels. We used to have only three or so channels for our news; cable TV changed that. So TV networks have tended to be loud and partisan to attract viewers.

    Newspapers and news magazines haven't been as profit oriented. Because their circulations have decreased, ad revenue has also decreased.
