    You chopped off the rest of my response, but since it wouldn't fit your cute
    lil' spin I don't blame you for chipping it.

    If you listen to main stream media your not always getting the whole picture.

    You see how I snipped what I didn't like in your post? What the hell do think
    the media does everyday? ;o) Your getting a condensed version of snippits, and
    half truths portrayed in such a way that it makes it news even when it's not.
    This is due in large part to the highly competitive industry, and that fact
    that most or your reporters have 2 versions of the news, one is the way they
    see it, and the other is what really happend. Let's test to see how well
    informed you really are. What percentage of reporters go into the the feild
    thinking they can make a difference, and change things when their god damn job
    is to report the news? A poll was done.
    I will await your answer mister informed. ;o)

    I read newspapers from across the country and around the world, getting many
    different perspectives. In the process, I discover facts that one story may
    have missed.

    That's not what you're doing. You cut out what you didn't like because it
    didn't support your position. If you don't like it, then it just doesn't
    exist.

    This sounds like it's right off Fox News, which is probably your favorite
    source. Oh BTW did you notice they got laughed out of court over their
    trademark lawsuit with Al Franken? I watched Fox news for hours yesterday;
    not one mention of it. Nor did they mention how publicity from the lawsuit
    sent franken's book from #426 to #4. Fair and balanced?

    I have no idea and it has nothing to do with what we're discussing. In
    fact, this whole thing has become an off-topic distraction. You wanna
    discuss this further, send me an email.

    Corrert, the media does the same thing.
    Pay attention.

    Not really.

    Sure Fox is guilty, and so are many others. They are just on different sides.

    Sure it does.

    Yeah, I guess, seeing what an important voice Al Franken is for
    world politics, we should be seeing the story in all the headlines.

    The news shouldn't be a voice for world politics; rather, it should be _of_
    world politics. That's where I feel that Fox News goes too far to the right.
    It's spelled journalism, not jingoism.

    Besides, Rush Limbaugh really is a Big Fat Idiot. ;)

    Oh yeah, none of that was taking place until Fox showed up.
    Riiiiight. We have decades of hyper-liberal news, then one network
    shows up with a conservative bent and the left gets in an uproar.
    give me a break. :)

    Exactly. Actually Fox tells it like it is for the most part. Although
    who can believe anything you hear through the media. Look at O'Reilly
    as an example. I do not always agree with his veiws but, he seems to
    cater to both sides although he can lean to the right at times. Then
    you have Hannity and Colmes. One guy from the left and one from the
    right. Ever see this on a liberal network? You know, a person each
    representing both sides? Of course not! Hannity always makes Colmes
    look foolish then again Hannity is quite a bit more intelligent.:)
    Most liberal shows only give the lefts point of view then after there
    silly comments the audience applauds and yells (It's all staged).

    Thats about the only thing you can do. Only problem is, who do
    you believe? How do you work out which sources are distorting the
    truth on which issues? In some ways the large amount of news
    sources available almost makes it more difficult to find out the
    truth. Freedom of press is a wonderful thing, but the essential
    flaw is that instead of leaving the media in the hands of
    government (which would be bad) it is left in the hands of big
    business and tycoons with personal, financial and political
    agendas (which is also bad).
    Whether or not they like to admit it, every source has an angle.

    Well, the do spell Fox right. That's about it, though.

    Although

    A very savvy attitude here.

    Look at O'Reilly

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! LMAO!!! Yeah, BO'R catres to both conservatives and
    reactionaries. He didn't mind talking about Al Franken until that federal
    judge bouced Fox's lawsuit. I have yet to hear him say a word about it
    since.

    Then

    "Meet The Press" has been on liberal TV for about 30 years, and they have a
    wider and more quilitive range of guests than anything Fox has ever had. We
    also have "This Week In Washington", "Live with George Stephanopoulos",
    "Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer". Even Larry King had Ann Coulter on his
    show last week and let her speak her mind even though he clearly disagreed
    with her. If Sean Hannity or Bill O'Lie-ley doesn't like what you're
    saying, they just shout you down and go to commercial without letting you
    respond.

    Hannity always makes Colmes
    > look foolish then again Hannity is quite a bit more intelligent.:)


    I haven't seen that show, although I've seen Hannity's own talk show. He'd
    be more at home with *People* magazine.

    > Most liberal shows only give the lefts point of view then after there

    Are there any conservative TV talk shows with an audience?

    Dubya was in Oregon this week; in Portland he stayed only an hour; long
    enough to get from the airport to the venue, do a 27-minute speech at a
    $2000-a-plate lunch, pose for pictures at $2500 a pop, then dash back to
    AF-1 (news cameras and radio stations weren't allowed to broadcast live;
    that had to wait until he was in the air). His next stop was Central Oregon
    where he held an open-air rally where they cheered his every sentence.
    That's what I call diversity :)

    Reuters is pretty consistent. So is the BBC. AP can get a little liberal
    at times but they are careful as a rule with their sources and quotes on
    news stories as opposed to hmuman interest pieces. The NY Times has a
    definite liberal agenda which even liberals can't count on. Do a Google
    search on Greg Palast--his well-documented and annotated book on the 2000
    election was ignored by all mainstream media, liberal and conservative.

    In some ways the large amount of news

    ITA. This has always been true.

    There are still independent news osurces here in the USA. Not many, but
    they are there. When I see easily verifiable facts along with quotes,
    figures, and concrete examples, then I can accept that source on that story.
    Biy when it starts editorializing, then the entire story and all its
    follows-up become suspect.

    > Whether or not they like to admit it, every source has an angle.


    Too right.

    "Meet the depressed" is about as left as you can get. Light weight Larry is
    about as dull as gets.
