"Do you really think there is going to be original reporting every single night, on every single major news story around the world? That would be impossible."
No, it isn't!! There`s a difference between using the wire for a lead then, composing a story from an investigation and simply repeating a script.

This shows that not only are the stations tuned using the Top 40 Radio formula, the feed wire is tuned, too, which implies no non-local news story should EVER win an authorship award.

It also implies the feed wire is used for product placement.

Do you really think there is going to be original reporting every single night, on every single major news story around the world? That would be impossible. That's why there is a thing called the Associated Press. A centralized news organization that does all the news gathering, fact checking and sourcing. It`s easy for losers like Limbaugh to make fun of it because all Limbaugh does is spout opinions out of his feeble, drug-impaired brain. He doesn`t have to actually check facts, check sources and write anything.

It's called churnalism. A PR company sends out a story ( `Scientists show that X is the most Y day of the year...)and lazy media just regurgitates it whole. Obviously the retail sector supports the idea that at Christmas as well as buying crap for others you shuld buy crap for yourself. So they find some strapped academic and get a `study` released showing that most people buy themselves pressies, so why don`t you? and send it out to be mindlessly repeated.
