Have you ever noticed how we have become accustomed to the same lacklustre reportage, how the interviewee gives the same answers, or in the case of politicos don’t answer but talk around issues and its accepted, and its accepted, and its accepted, like people don’t think and if they do think why don’t they say anything? How the interviewer does the same old stuff probably to the protocol to the station he works for because they think the viewer wants it that way and,or stations, newspapers have other hidden agenda or advertisers they are trying to appease.
