Do you think the world of journalism in the US is not as it should be? In terms of a few companies owning the vast majority of media outlets.

Also, do you think there is a problem with things being covered and their air time being way out of proportion to the importance of the story? Like why global warming and human trafficking gets little coverage, but they will spend so much time covering an election, or a stupid celebrities new baby.

And that fact surely impacts democracy in a negative way. I feel the role of journalism is partly to act as a watch dog against the government/corporations, now it acts as their puppet in many ways.

How can it be changed? Was it worse or better in the past?
