    please help

    I was ask to Revise each of the following sentences to correct the dangling phrase.

    1. 1. No longer obsessed with being the first to report a story, information is now presented as entertainment.

    2. 2.Trying to attract younger viewers, news is blended with comedy on late night talking shows.

    3. 3. Highlighting local events, important international news stories may get overlooked.

    4. 4.Chosen for their looks, the journalistic credentials of newscasters maybe weak.

    5. 5. As an interactive medium, people can find information online that reinforces views they already hold.



    And here are my answers,
    I need help....Thanks.

    Re: please help

    1. In your response, it (the news) is 'no longer obsessed...'. Absurd. How 'bout: News organizations are no longer obsessed with being first to report a story so information is now presented as entertainment.
    2. Good!
    3. Good!
    4. Good!
    5. People can find information online that reinforces views they already hold because the internet is an interactive medium.
