Quality vs. Loud
Long time talk show host Larry King made this statement about modern (news) TV and I thought it was appropriate.


"It's not the quality that counts anymore. It's how loud did you yell, how vituperative can you be."

Definition of VITUPERATIVE. : uttering or given to censure : containing or characterized by verbal abuse ...

Or maybe I, am the only one who needed to look that one up. LOL

ne of the basic troubles with radio and television news is that both instruments have grown up as an incompatible combination of show business, advertising and news. Each of the three is a rather bizarre and demanding profession. And when you get all three under one roof, the dust never settles. The top management of the networks with a few notable exceptions, has been trained in advertising, research, sales or show business. But by the nature of the coporate structure, they also make the final and crucial decisions having to do with news and public affairs. Frequently they have neither the time nor the competence to do this.
Edward R Murrow.

Some of Murrow's speeches are amazingly eloquent.
