The news sites, or the Malice Stream Media (tm), are part of the corrupted establishment. I think Kari Lake once said the MSM are about "selling" their agenda as a business.
In the end, it all boils down to money. They only care about selling "convenient truths" or "manufactured entertainment" to be rich. The new gold rush is "digital drama selling." It comes with a hefty price tag. Either people are victimized or falsely depicted in some way (not MSM). One author said "bad news sells better than good news."
And it's not only limited to the MSM. Many shows on TV, or even YouTube, are fabricated entertainment too.
