Music Videos and the Advent of 24-Hour News Channels

STORY BY: Sharon Ruth Love
YEAR: 1982
LOCATION: Winnipeg, MB

Sharon is a proud Winnipeger, who reflects on the advent of music videos, which were covered in the show BOOM X. "I started thinking about the playing field, and what really changed it was the advent of the 24-hour news channels and stations. Everything can't be breaking news!" She bemoans the fact that no one on stations like CNN ever reads the news, "it's all panel discussions... These channels have become entertainment! They're not even newsworthy anymore." Thanks for sharing, Sharon.
