I HATE SOLIDAD O'BRIEN

And here you can see why:



Obviously an ideal example of OBJECTIVE journalism. How long are we willing to let the media be a rubber stamp for politicians, corporate influence, and liberalism? Is objective journalism dead?

The standards of objective journalism Lippmann painstakingly advocated in the early twentieth century, and which were adopted as ideal goals by major news organizations in midcentury, have long since been traduced, trampled, and trashed.
{...}

"For in an exact sense the present crisis of western democracy is a crisis of journalism," Lippmann wrote.
It really is sad that our media has become so biased that we cannot even PRETEND that they are objective anymore. Just look at the sneering faces O'Brien was making towards Paul. Listen to Hannity or O'Reilly and tell me that they are objective. Listen to the Ultra-Liberal tirade of that kook Keith Olbermann. Is there anywhere to go for factually and objectively shaped HARD news? I have a few places I like to go for relatively non-biased news. Another help is that if you want to know the "facts," read peer reviewed scholarly articles and documents.

Reuters
Associated Press
C-SPAN
Bloomberg
Yahoo!
Google
BBC News

And if you are looking for BIASED journalism towards my kind of slant, take a look at the links on the right side of the page under "my suggestions."

I believe "Objective" Journalism is a myth perpetuated by the media. The only "objectivity" is in the straight "reporting," you know the "who, what, where, when" stories. Journalists feel it is their role to "instruct" us cause we're such simpletons we cannot possibly "understand" how the world works.

Great blog you have here.
