When Ted Turner started CNN it was seen as a novelty that would fade away. How wrong that was assumption? Very! The hope from those who supported CNN had no idea what was about to happen. As more and more cable news outlets became available the thought that with more choices people would see different views and that would enrich discourse. The sad thing is that just the opposite has happened. People watch channels that have the same views as they do! That has led to 24 hour a day of nothing but noise and hateful speech. Keep in mind that these channels have 24 a hours a day to fill and sadly that has hurt everyone.
