While the media is a necessary actor in the smooth functioning of a rational and informed society, oftentimes the 'news' is sensationalized, slipshod, or even outright deceitful such it utterly fails at this responsibility. Generally, if you can make a case that a better public debate or policy would have been had by more informed or even no attention from the mass media, it would fall into this category.
