This man is brilliant.

Media Bias


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Good article. I think there shouldn't be any bias in the news.

No, you don't have what it takes.

Not even a good try.

Yes, Thomas Sowell is definitely one very smart cookie. Not only is he smart, but he is very good at getting his ideas across concisely and simply -- a rare skill in itself. I look forward to each of his columns.

Here in the Dominican Republic it is an enormously expensive undertaking to get books (or anything for that matter) through customs, but I intend to order buy several of his books on my next vacation to Canada.

Malachi writes:

This is all that Sowell has to say about Fox News:

"The remarkable success of Fox News, with its motto of "We report, you decide," suggests that many people suspect much of the mainstream media of filtering and slanting the news. Unfortunately, such suspicions are all too well founded."

Does he claim anywhere that Fox News is "fair and balanced?" Nope. He suggests that the success of Fox News is due to peoples' (correct) perception that CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, New York Times and other mainstream media are left-biased. He then gives specific examples of such bias.

Read what he says, not what you think he says.

Why hasn't the media reported on the plight of the Kurds in Turkey?

Seems like a leftist goldmine, don't they think Turkish Kurds sell cars and hot pockets?

wow, you're obviously in a hard spot, trying to defend fox "faux" news and all, but to resort to nit picky syntax rebuttals? lame.

"The remarkable success of Fox News.....many people suspect much of the mainstream media of filtering....suspicions are all too well founded"

if that isn't an endorsement... regardless, if fox is the unfiltered, unslanted source of info that this fellow claims, then that would be equivalent to "fair and balanced" in my book.

which is ludicrous, obviously.

read the coherent content, not just the words.

behind every conservative young person is a story about not being good at hackey sack.

I wish everyone would stop putting this issue in black and white... this argument can never end because both sides are right. There is liberal bias and conservative bias. It just depends where you look.

For example, conservatives dominate cable TV... try to name one solo liberal debate show host. They recently fired Donahue because he was too anti-war, so he's gone. What is there on the right? You got Bill O'Reilly, Joe Scarborough (O'Reilly II), Michael Savage, Lou Dobbs, to name a few.

On the other side, it seems pretty evident that there is more of a liberal bias in the printed media.

This, to me, is not as big an issue as most make it out to me, because those of us who care about the news will find it on our own, from where we want, and hopefully get objective news. I, for example, like reading The Guardian Online... the UK actually has some independent media free from bias.

I just wish we would have major independent media in this country.
