    Should you find anything in this guide that you disagree with or in fact know to be false, please do remember the golden rule first laid out in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, “The Guide is definitive. Reality is frequently inaccurate.”


Soft News


Soft news consists of the vast wasteland of stories that are not actually newsworthy, but are entertaining in nature. They also include frivolity and gossip, such as stories about Kimye, who in Hollywood is dating, divorcing or on the outs with whom, and how many twitter followers a loaf of bread has this weekend.

Sadly, these stories are actually regarded as news by the majority of the population, who would not watch any news programming were it not for this mind-numbing chatter.

True journalists weep over this until their tears either dry up or an ill-intentioned editor has drank all of those tears, and then the sad, tired journalist crosses over to the dark side, realizes he or she is in the entertainment business, and begins covering stories that will drive web traffic or broadcast ratings.
