the news that’s fit to print

Shouldn't Roy G. Biv be turned on his head?

Except. Well. The most-read news story is not actually news. It’s opinion. That Rick Snyder ‘made a misstep’ is a normative statement, conveying not the facts, but what you should think of the facts.

I am whining about how society gets their news (if they get it at all). Nothing new. Probably irreversible. But to counter normativer with normative, shouldn’t the bottom story be the top story?
