  • Apr 15 2011: It'd be nice if they worked hard to tell verify the truth, even for unexciting stories. I don't expect hardcore investigative journalism for every story, but at least some effort put into having some code of ethics.

    Currently, aside from certain personalities I've found interesting, I get nearly all my news by reading the same story online from several sources. It'd be nice if the news people online were inspirational, something we watched because we could related to it as far as the human experience is concerned.
