    This may go without saying .... because I for one expected it
    But a WTF News producer was caught trying to get the crowds pumped up at a teabagger rally so it would look like they were more animated than they really were

    Fair and Balanced >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> MY ASS

    Just another journalistic myth over there icon_rolleyes.gif

    No surprise. I hope people continue to expose them for what they are.

    Yeah, Fox says she was "disciplined": no doubt for getting caught, not for doing it.

    I prefer to get my news from MSNBC and Air America radio. At least with them I know I am getting both sides of the story. icon_confused.gif

I dare you to compare them on any recent 5 mutually covered issues, you do the research and you'll find fox on the losing end of real facts nearly everytime.

    If this was not intended as sarcasm on your part- It's the most intelligent thing I've ever seen you posted on any forum thus far.

    All news channels distort reality at one time or another. I wish people would look at these matters more objectively, rather than making a big deal about the ones that serve their agenda.

    Remember this one from oh-so-trusted NBC?

    I think the biggest problem is that news media organizations have totally forgotten what it means to REPORT the news vs. interpreting what it means. That USED to be our responsibility - and we are the poorer for that massive shift.

    And with the Obama state-run media .. msnbc, abc.... we can be sure to get the best of the obama coverage. Just like Saddam Hussein, and Akmedinishad in Iran. Cant wait !

    because we americans love our entertainment. if it is reported, it's boring and who will watch? And consequently no ad revenues and on and on...

    so things are sensationalized and packaged in an entertainment type bit speech. once ratings came into play, the news stopped being the news

    If you honestly believe that Obama is 'running the media' then how on earth did MSNBC and ABC (and all of the others for that matter) exist before he came into office? Oh, right. Because he's not.

    Seriously, a SMIDGE of critical thinking would be beneficial. Don't burst a vessel or anything, but a modicum of effort would be appreciated greatly.

    Oy!! We're back to this again?
    We did this when Clinton was in office ... everything was Clinton News Network
    and then we had the whining ... oh everyone is Bushbashing .... why are they always picking on Bush
    Because he was a friggin' idiot that's why
    and now we have the righties thinkin' anything that isn't WTF News is tainted

    Newsflash .... if everyone Except someone like BS O'Reilly is saying one thing
    I'd go with the rest of the world

    What happened ? aren't republicans supposed to be educated enough to spell 2 simple words. Wait I forgot they have continually pulled funding for education - must be a long term plot to strengthen their base by cultivating ignorance/stupidity iwith the result of more herd mentality in the future.

    To me, this is more about the media loving a story and wanting to "spice it up" more than a political position. It's a symptom of All Drama All the Time TV.

    PS -

    CNN's rebuttal to the FAUX News ad in the Washington Post was particularly entertaining (and right on the money)..
