It makes me so mad!

“Did you watch the news last night?”

“Yeah, I watched [Tucker Carlson/Rachel Maddow].”

Except that’s not the news. That’s an editorial program where a person gets performatively angry about their opinion of selected bits of news so that you get angry about it along with them...righteously angry enough to sit through an hour’s worth of commercials. 

It’s not news, it’s irritainment.
