The news tends to be a form of entertainment whose goal is to bring in revenue. They often will work on side of a story to stir up interest, fear, anger, etc. Then work the other side, back and forth until the next story breaks with something more current and marketable.

Very businesslike. How could we expect it to be otherwise?
