    I'd call it formulaic reporting rather than generic.

    Welcome to your nightly national news. Another thing to take note of, is the vast majority of the time, the 30 minute propoganda show will end with a puff piece designed to leave you with a smile on your face.

    So true. There's few things I despise more than forced feel-good garbage. I literally haven't watched network news in years. I grew up on ABC and Peter Jennings, but now I get most of my news from the internet and the gang here. Very funny stuff in this thread; the news is pretty much now an assembly line, designed to have plug-and-play parts that cut costs and keep audiences.
