Not only does the media like to overdramatize, but they're part of the
corporate power structure, and as such, minimizing consumer protection is
just fine with them. Let's see... how do I relate this to tech writing...
um... OK, so biased media coverage is like bad tech writing: it might be
concise, grammatically correct, perfectly-spelled, and completely accurate,
but it doesn't tell us what we need to know.
