Most people get their news from TV. Problem is that in the past few years the regression from the idea of reporting the news back to the yellow journalism ideals of making up the news has greatly accelerated. Fox News had lead the blind charge (though all the other news networks have followed) and today the ‘news’ is just another battle ground between conservative bigots and bleeding heart liberals. It’s gotten so bad that you can’t even form an idea of what really happened in any event by watching both sides. Read this [ foxnews.com ] from The O’Reilly factor yesterday and you can see how inflammatory reporting has become. Even though O’Reilly’s comments where given as his and not the networks there was no attempt to have a counter argument from someone who disagrees—no “fair an balanced” reporting.
