Hey look at what is in the news!!!

As noted in the book, certain types of crimes tend to "sell" more than others.

When crimes fit certain themes and contain certain narratives, you can expect them to be covered nearly everywhere. Consider this recent example from CNN and Fox News, who rarely have the same lead story!

Also in the news are these bizarre stories ... maybe you should wonder why such stories are newsworthy in the first place???

When the President actually doesn't know what he is talking about

Yesterday President Donald Trump said:

1) "We need quick justice and we need strong justice -- much quicker and much stronger than we have right now. Because what we have right now is a joke and it's a laughingstock. And no wonder so much of this stuff takes place."

2) "We also have to come up with punishment that's far quicker and far greater than the punishment these animals are getting right now. They'll go through court for years. And at the end, they'll be -- who knows what happens."

What is the contradiction? Can you find it?

And then, there is this: The evidence.
