No - I think most people recognize FOX news for what it is.

The internet has ended the news dictatorship the big networks once had. Now people can look at news that suits their own agenda instead of some network bigwhigs agenda.

Let them prattle.

Anyone that depends on broadcast "news" in this day and age as their only source of information is a terminal sheeple and unlikely to be swayed by other voices.

There's an "OFF" switch and many channels on TV for a reason... USE THEM!!

I agree. It a shame because I really do like current events. But you got to run everything through your bullshit filter first these days.

This is the truth. And not only for agenda based news.

How fast was that AP story about people booing Bush's "Pray for Clinton" statement debunked? 15 minutes?

I mean, why ask CNN about Iraq (hint: Their reporters don't leave the Green Zone, and their station head is on his FIRST overseas assignment after doing fluff human interest shit) when I can read, online, what's going on from Iraqis and soldiers right there on the ground.

I get most of my Iraq, Politics, War on Terror news from Command-Post.

Mass media has seriously underestimated the "information superhighway". They bullshit us, we know. Fast.

Personally, I hate an TV show/movie that try to preach something to me, whether is guns, AIDS, etc. I just can't stand them advertising their beliefs disquiesed entertainment. Some of those shows are pretty blatant about and show no restraint what they are trying to pass along to their audience, kinda of a little brain washing.

The internet has made it alot easier for people to get more sources for news, without alot of the bias. Theres about 3 major news networks, run out of choices there fast, easy to find another internet site or 20.

Yes, this is the most-biased I have ever seen them. There is a reason I don't watch broadcast TV or get a newspaper anymore. Don't they realize their bias is wrecking their business?

Most of the "media"are simply the "House organ"of the American Communist Party,aka the DU,aka the dimokratic party.What is so surprising.The kommies allways go for control of the media first.It makes spreading the "New truth" soooooo much easier and many people do not know what to think until they are given thought instructions by their masters.

Realize that objectivity as an ideal is dead. At least in the eyes of (most of) the news media. My view is that the Left fired the first shots in politicizing the media, and the Right has had to relucatantly respond, or get steamrolled. It's likely to get even more partisan, soon.

Examine all sides, learn to detect BS, and pay more attention to (local) news that you can more easily observe first-hand. It takes time and effort, but it's probably all you can do.
