2. Almost anything that Trump does NOW would be 'round-the clock news for being outrageous.

It's currently the norm, because he does it so often.

6. We had...

... The OJ Story... The Anna Nicole Smith Death... The Missing Natalie Holloway... All-Monica, All the Time... several were mainly FOX, but they made the others participate. The moment I remember is when FOX sent Greta to a Florida beach, after a pair of panties washed up on shore. FOX loved that story, and having their newsreaders say "panties" over and over was rating gold.

8. Are you talking about

the years when every day was not "breaking news?" When you turned on the T.V and there was not any red box talking about the latest crap? Could you be talking about the days when we did not have "several" "breaking news" in one day?

9. They covered the monthly congressional bill to repeal the ACA.

Pass the house, pass the senate, get vetoed by the president.

Repeat.

Also, there were fair and informative committee investigations into emails and Benghazi.

It was a much more civil time.
