The media performs three basic functions — educate, inform, and entertain. Yet, it seems the media has almost perfected the entertainment mandate to a fault.

Also, have you ever tried to watch the news and all you see are sensational stories of failures, setbacks, imbroglio, from the beginning right up to the end? This makes me ask myself and anyone around- even though these stories are prevalent- are there no stories of value?

Some psychologists have even recommended that certain individuals stay away from the news, for the sake of their mental health.
