That's the perplexing part... why does there have to be any spin at all?

There never used to be.
Reason? Ratings.

Yup. Target audience. Who buys the most of what.

There are two types of bad news. 1: when they're only reading from some stupid article on the internet, and 2: when they omit key information and/or spin it around to fit a political agenda. I want the facts, the whole facts, and nothing but the facts!

Neither. I like bad news fine. How it is reported doesn't matter.

I don't like news stories that aren't news stories at all, they're deliberately politically packaged spews to combat other actual news stories. I tire of the scripted debates where deviation from either of the two standard narratives is considered an affront to the soft psyches of our already completely disfunctional, perpetually offended society.

I get my news at https://theconversation.com/us where readers get to publish their opinions on each article. Nobody complains about the news. Most often they complain about the dingbat presentation. One guy misspelled his headline.
