If you're after objective news...spin-free
'who, what, when, where, why' reporting, television news is the last
place you should go. If you want to know what a given political bias
says about a specific news event, this is a great place to start,
because all the key players wear their biases on their sleeves.
THE BIG-3: ABC, CBS and NBC
are a complete and utter waste of time. Each is beyond redemption due
to their blatantly leftist spin. All they give you is commentary
disguised as 'hard news'.
FOX NEWS CHANNEL
Fair and Balanced? More or less, but don't bet the farm on it. Fox News
is a moderately right-wing, elephant clan friendly news outlet that
makes sincere, but flawed, attempts at presenting both sides of each
issue. Fox News is OK to watch, but it gets annoying, at times.
At first, thanks in large part to Fox News Channel's success, both
attempted to be 'balanced', but neither put much effort into it. That
ended when the Daily Kosacks accused them of 'selling out'. Of
the two, MSNBC is the biggest insult to a rational adult's
intelligence. Throwing journalism and 'objectivity' under the
bus, MSNBC's 'viewpoint' can be summed up in three statements.
If's it's liberal, they admire it. If it's socialist, they
love it. If it's Marxist, they worship it. When it comes to
CNN - formerly called the Clinton News Network - they are the
propaganda arm of the Demoncrat party. CNN is, slightly, better than
MSNBC, but we doubt that you'll notice the difference.
Getting down to specifics, here a few major cable news outlet
King is utterly clueless on virtually every topic. That's why he's
infamous for asking those demented, softball questions. I'm still
waiting for someone, anyone, to explain why this clown has his own
Noisy and combative, Mathews bellows a question, interrupts the guest's
response by answering the question himself, then bellows another
question. 'Hardball' is the reason they put a mute button on the
television remote control.
A legend in his own mind, hopelessly in love with his own voice, his
show comes down to one basic subject that can be defined as 'all Bill,
all the time'. I'm not impressed. O'Reilly's so-called no spin zone, in
real life, translates as 'never let a well-informed guest put the
vastly overrated O'Reilly intellect to shame, even when the host agrees
with what the guest is saying'.
Alleged debates meant to give both sides of an issue, these match-ups
always turn into shouting contests during which both guests try to
silence each other with a relentless, unstoppable outpouring of
invective. This is another excellent reason for a mute button on your
NEWS NAZI PILING ON
Cable news is infamous for its wall-to-wall coverage of the latest top
story. Any news item that gets saddled with its own title and special
graphic is spewed out 24/7 until you go postal. Familiar topics
include: Storm Watch; Decision 2002 (2004, 2006, any election year);
School Shootings; Murderous Rampages; Wildfires; Operation France
NEWS NAZI CIRCLE JERKS
Nothing makes me seriously consider murder and mayhem more predictably
than a reporter/commentator interviewing another reporter/commentator.
The only thing that tops this one is a reporter/commentator asking a
'celebrity' to pontificate about politics, world events, or any serious
topic unrelated to the celebrity's alleged 'craft'. I don't give a
flaming damn what dweebs like Tim 'Mister Susan Sarandon' Robbins,
Ramon 'Martin Sheen' Estevez and Mike 'Peace Weasel' Farrell think
about any damn thing.
Now that we're all on the same page, it's time for another
PIG-induced reality check. Ready or not, here it comes...Boob tube news
is just as informative with the sound off. Enjoy the pictures, but
remember that these images were carefully selected to 'spin' you.
Unless you're a complete masochist, I strongly advise you to avoid boob
tube news as if your sanity depends on it.
