In the 24/7 cable news media cycles, mainstream channels are doing everything to attract viewers and beat their competitors. As a result, many non-stories are dressed up with dramatic music and flashy graphics to portray drama, fear and capture the attention of American viewers. On a regular basis, in breaking news situations, channels get the facts wrong and make bold connections with little or no evidence. Just last week, Fox News reported that a UFO was flying over NYC. Hours later, it turns out the mysterious object was in fact a balloon.
