Most of the outlets are reporting on world events from Washington. The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns.
That's a sea change. They literally know nothing.

The US government claims that Iran attacked a Japanese shipping vessel with mines. Iran claims this is a lie.
I'm not going to pretend I know the truth, even though my initial reaction is always suspicion. Much like the reports that Assad attacked his people with chemical weapons in Syria, it is hard to see what Iran would gain from attacking the vessel.
