The context of news consumption was very different a few years back, I guess. You got the paper once (or perhaps twice if you lived in a city) a day for news, and there are set points during the day for broadcast updates on TV or radio. Perhaps you were in a mindset that allows more for thinking about what's being presented to you ("it is time for the news so I'll tune in"), and the organisation doing it had more time to formulate actual analysis on whatever the story is.
Now it's a relentless slew of constantly updating stories from an array of sources, so it's jading, and you remember the controversial points or those which reinforce your existing worldview.
Interesting and depressing article @Oliver Schick
