    The news media is unintentionally converting their information into white noise because they must report today's most important news. Which is one of the reasons why most voters are not able to vote intelligently. But I have been trying for twenty years to get someone in the news media to consider a proposal for publishing their information once a year like a teacher would for a classroom filled with failing students. It would be easy to do. It should even be profitable to do. But no one in the news media is interested in discussing their failute to communicate because no one wants to change their professional standards. And this includes Howard Kurtz. Reporters are behaving like the doctors who refused to wash their hands just because of a new theory about germs. One of these days they are going to realize that many of the problems in our country could have been solved or ameliorated if they had been willing to communicate like a teacher instead of a reporter at least once a year. But they refused.
