Try watching different news channels this week objectively (With an open mind).

I listened to the Diane Rehm Show on NPR after the Supreme Court decision about gay marriage. She had two advocates for gay marriage and no opposing viewpoint (There was a time when NPR would always present both sides of an issue......but not today). MSNBC obviously is cut in the same mold (Only one side of issues).

A couple of nights ago I watch Fox News debate the Iran deal. You will notice Fox normally has the host between two opposing viewpoints. This type of aggressive debate is something totally missing from NPR and most liberal news sources.

This week, compare NPR, MSNBC, FOX, CNN and Ask yourself:

Do you see/hear both sides of the issue (Fox is pretty good at this....NPR and MSNBC are the big losers)? 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 3 years ago -

There is never a opposing opinion presented on MSNBC> 

I_won't_tell --- 3 years ago -

ROH

Unfortunately there are too many Kool-aide dinkers that don't care of about hearing both sides.


Maybe NPR and MSNBC are for big losers?

But... But... But... Megyn Kelly and Elizabeth Hassellback are too pretty to be taken seriously.

Copied from other thread:

Fair reporting of your observations, RoH.

I don't view on air debates with the fervor that some others might. Watching 2 or more people yell at each other is not my idea of fair and balanced. It's just a visible form of dysfunction.

My sources for info are varied as is my interest in a particular subject. For information, I'm a reader. Local, national, and international websites are a part of that process.

For some topics, I like to see an explanation of how that particular item is or is not in the public interest. Not particularly "because the Bible says so." Name calling and labeling others is just not part of the analysis process for me.

I often see conflict between what is legal and what I personally feel. I bow to the law until I can get it changed. Yes, I have been successful in doing exactly that.

Salacious newscasting is never going to be fair and balanced. Even the Weather Channel moved in that direction recently. Another news website reported that the experiment didn't work and they are returning to information, their basic heritage.

Who "wins" or "loses" a debate doesn't mean much to me when I can dig around a bit and come up with an opinion of my own.

Thanks for your perspective.

Would you rather listen to MSNBC ranters go on promoting only one side of an issue.

I was listening to the radio today and a guy said he thinks that liberalism is becoming a cult that is trying to stamp out any form of disagreement.

Never thought of it that way, but I see it. Some liberal broadcasters seem to think there is only one side to every issue.

....How Sad!!

You watch too much TV... 

RayofHope --- 3 years ago -

Probably.

Yes, Fox is the best at showing both sides of the issues.

Kim Davis is a liberal? omg!

Good journalism died with the advent of cable television.

But... But... But... Megyn Kelly and Elizabeth Hassellback are too pretty to be taken seriously.?

The first time I watched Megyn on television I felt the same way, but she is intelligent and a tough journalist. Look how she handled Trump. 

steinhoister2016 --- 3 years ago -

Forget fox news and look at Fox as a whole...they pander to the lowest common denominator that watches tv...it's why shows like family guy and married with children are so popular...and if more liberals started watching fox news you can absolutely bet that they would become a liberal network. It's all about ratings and advertising dollars...they know the dumbest of the population will tune in to all of their programming....the dumbest comedy fans and the dumbest news fans...carry on.

She used to be a lawyer as are quite a few other Fox News "anchors" or contributors.

family guy

the dumbest comedy fans

So you believe I'm dumb because I find Family Guy funny? 

them --- 3 years ago -

they pander to the lowest common denominator that watches tv..


You might be onto to something here. Before Viacom spun off CBS, Dan Rather was their lead anchor the same time one of their other networks, mtv, was airing that teen mom reality show...
