News doesn't offer solutions, opinions, takes, or sides, it offers facts, events, and background and puts it to the viewer to form their own solutions, opinions, takes and sides.

The vast majority of "News" today is entertainment with a side of current events and fear mongering.

I am okay with a little bit of speculation based on how similar previous events played out, or how a population might react based on culture/political leaning. But they need to stay away from how they want things to play out.

That's not news. That's analysis.

Yes, but what I am saying is a little bit of good analysis is acceptable along with the news, as long as it follows the conditions that I put forth.

The majority of news is absolutely not. Let me guess, you live in the U.S/UK?

Nope, Canada... We have the same problem as the other 2 though... And a lot of US media exposure.
