The reason we seldom make sense of the News is simple. What's sensible seldom makes the News and almost never makes the headlines. .

The sensational lie gets repeated. The sensible truth often fails to get a footnote. Volume trumps verity. The public drowns in data while starving for meaning. The simply wrong gets covered while complex,nuanced reality is ignored like a family values politician's illegitimate child."
