I don't know that I would call it "balanced". The one thing that cost all credibility with me was when former congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) was caught with this whole issue some of the former congressional aides. After three times of showing him as a Democrat, I thought that was pretty bad. I guess that's what's known as "balanced" -- call a person from one party as a member of the other party. That way you cover both parties. :lol:

That's not slanting the news. That's flat out lying.


All networks make graphical mistakes, especially on live news. When Columbia fell to earth, CNN had a graphic saying it was flying 25 times the speed of light. Also, there was that one time MSNBC misspelled "Niger"! :rolleyes:

I understand that. The first one you list here is an obvious mistake. The second, I hope, was not a freudian slip. I was surprised that the Foley thing went on three separate times, not just once. That's why I believe it was intentional.

Ofcourse it will be. It will also be filled with attractive women that probably don't have really in depth knowledge of the material that they are reporting on; all of which is designed to mask psuedo-news into "important" news. And no, I am not biased against Fox "News" ;) :lol:


If this is a true, I probably would watch it in mute.

There's definitely some of the hiring for looks in the business. A friend of mine, who was an anchor for a TV station, said he cringed when the anchor called the Mojave Desert the "Mo-Jave" (like mo-cave). There were a few other instances, but that one sticks out the most.
