If news reporting become a capitalistic venture, I have no doubt that there will be abuse and unethical practices by certain individuals.

News = people watching TV
People watching TV = more exposure to sponsors and advertisements
More sponsors paying for airtime = a greater demand for airtime
Greater demand for airtime = money

Hence logic would hold true that:

News = Money

They spend money to make money. They spent probably hundreds if not thousands of dollars getting peope on scene, and keeping them there, for this whole thing. You think they did for altruistic reasons? They did it for ratings and ratings generally means more people watching TV and this always means more money money money.
