Why We Want Biased News

All of the recent discussion of news, be it fake, unfair, slanted, etc, has gotten me thinking about the mechanics of news. I’ll define news as things or events that, as far as anyone can tell, happened or didn’t happen, and _reported news_as how news is communicated, including websites, papers, newscasts on TV, radio, podcasts, blogs, tweets, etc. So any description of something that happened or didn’t happen, then I’m calling it reported news.
