+1.
I threw that one out there because it's sickening and sad how many people buy into the "fair and balanced" slogan they've used for a while now.


People just see FNC (not FN) as right-wing because everything else is left-wing, so it appears skewed when it's actually in the middle. You'll never see a more balanced approach to new than FNC. They always bring in folks on both sides of the argument, unlike a Today Show or MSNBC, where they'll just start off every hour highlighting those dead in Iraq, blaming it on Bush, and failing to rattle off the long list of Dems who voted for the war, etc., etc., etc.
DirecTV since 2001, NFLST, EI, and as of 2/8/07, new AU-9 with 2 HR20-700S (1 HDMI, 1 component/RCA), 6X8 multiswitch, and Samsung LNS3252D 32" LCD...eSata Seagate 750GB...12/30/07 new HR20-700S component connected to Phillips 42PFL5332D 42" LCD and HDMI to a little 20" Dynex LCD

I thought MSNBC had been using HD equipment since the beginning.

When I want the right wing spin for the dems who voted for authorization I turn to Fox. By the way those dead in Iraq are 3600+ of my brothers and sisters. I could not be as casual as you are about that.

Regardless of spin, I can't take a "news" network that claims to have tried to "shape" seriously. Any self-respecting journalist, regardless of political biases, would not try to shape or promote something because they want it. That's not journalism. That's an infomercial. It isn't even remotely balanced. It's self-promotion.

Which is exactly what ALL "journalists" do. None of them are able to just simply "report" the news without throwing their own slant into the story one way or another. Just the SELECTION of what they cover reveals their slant. There are no "journalists" there are only people talking about their slant on any given story. A "journalist" should be just that, someone who keeps a "journal" of events and reads from that journal. But, that would be boring, so we have what we have today. Keep the journal up without the side comments, the sneers and the slanted delivery.

On that, this thread has gone off topic enough and it's time to close. For those who missed the original topic, MSNBC might be in HD one of these days.
