Fear machines

With a quick glimpse at the news headlines, the most observable thing among most newspapers around the world is that they are fear based news. Fear is a built in feature. If you doubt me, please grab your phone, go to any newspaper website or app on your phone and check the rate of fear in their headlines, stories and reports. Fear dominates the discourse.

There is a huge difference between reporting the news impartially and intentionally camouflaging fear in the news. As the newspaper management goes, so goes the news. Impartiality and objectivity are detrimental to the business.
