About

A portrait of Ted Turner, founder of CNN and by extension a 24-hour news cycle I’ll blame everything wrong with America on Ted Turner. Don’t misread me – he didn’t do anything that grave. But he did invent the 24-hour news cycle with CNN. And that gave way to any number of other all-day news networks, scrabbling to find content to fill every minute of every day. The result is unimportant events, comments, or opinions being elevated to headline news. Now we have some difficulty seeing the forest for the trees when it comes to politics, national and international policy, interpersonal relationships, everything. We’ve learned to react to every single occurrence in a way that exhausts our ability to effectively filter out lies from truth. The 24-hour news cycle has been one of the greatest gifts to the lie because it offers unvetted liars a platform while simultaneously grinding down citizens’ ability to pay attention to the meaningful moments surrounded by so much noise.
