Let's say there is something happening that the power-that-be does not want others to know, and it was an emergency and they did not have time to cut off the net feed
Not only that, but imagine (and surely this has already happened to some)
Say a meteor hits the Earth. Everyone watches. Many die. As some may have already guessed, the whole episode takes a while - plus, there will be tons of aftermath coverage that you will not be able to turn away from - not from any fault of your own just human nature and the curiosity/shock-&-awe factor. Meanwhile, Time Warner & Comcast make billions, all in one day. The event is so "popular" that execs consider discreetly lassoing some more rocks to smash into metropolitan areas - all in the name of, well... ratings, really.
Frankly, this has the very disturbing potential to monetize tragedy & create (an even bigger) ecosystem of for-profit destruction & misery. If the Rupert Murdochs of the world could sell you blood for oil as efficiently as they already have, just imagine what coming waves of depravity that may be sprawling across your various feeds.
It is inevitable and only a matter of time. The evidence for this trend is piling up so that you can take your pick resources to reference.
Can the keymasters of information distribution & media be trusted as often or thoroughly as the gatekeepers of information gathering & security?
These days - and those to come even more so - the internet is both of those things as much as it is either one individually.
