In-Depth Analysis of ISIS by ABC, NBC, CBS

Now would be a worthwhile time to watch again the in-depth programs ABC, NBC, and CBS have done about ISIS.  

Oh, that's right.   There aren't any such programs.  

America's major network news corporations no longer put significant resources, time and reporting effort into complex issues that need to be thoughtfully examined.  

It's 2016.  The purpose of a license to broadcast is a license to print money.  The concern is shareholder value and stock price and executive compensation.

To find some highly informative reporting and analysis on ISIS check the BBC or Bill Moyers or the Guardian.

The Guardian:  https://www.theguardian.com/world/isis

What about FOX?  FOX, the communication arm of the Republican party, now has the result of its daily propaganda campaign pointing out every problem in the world is caused by President Obama.  The result is Donald Trump, a presidential candidate who believes the current president somehow, some way, had something to do with Orlando.  

When journalism fails, bad things happen.
