Governments view journalism as an indoctrination tool, for better or worse. Journalists see it as the work of demigod who can’t lie by definition. To ISIS, newspapers are just as flammable as the infidels who write for them and read them. And to the readers, news is not worth paying money for since social media gossip is faster and less inaccurate.
In America, negative news sells.
Is hate any different if it comes from ISIS against the West or from a Baptist arguing with a Pentecostal? We argue a lot. But only hearts change laws and only love changes hearts.
