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.
Any self-respecting journalist, regardless of political biases, would not try to shape or promote something because they want it.
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.
