What they are calling news stories are nothing but opinion pieces that belong on the editorial pages. The Boston Globe is awful these days. They are not serving readers. Rather they are engaged in a pissin war with Trump. Meanwhile print media is doing exactly what Trump is accusing them of doing -- serving the contentious situation instead of serving we readers. I know that I have at times been criticized right here but no one can say that I have ever forgotten the readers in my work.
The coverage of Trump is hopeless but I don't think it's all the fault of the press. He says things that are false and the press has a field day running down the fact checking

Imagine if Trump was a Surfcaster the things he would be claiming?

We do have our own versions of false and sensational fishing reports
"Limits are the rule so book your trip now as choice dates are filling up fast"
And failing to mention the days when it was slow at best.

I guess it comes down to...
What is the motivation ?
And does it really help them sell more issues or advertisement ?
