I watched CNN fairly often during the recent Deep Throat thing and thought it was quite good then. Dan Rather even came back as anchor for a day  :grin:
And Woodward and Bernstein were on.

to me the problem isn't wether the media is biased or not, which it probably is in some cases, the problem comes from what kind of info they give, what their stories are, how they decide to use their "on air" time.
i think the media has fallen asleep, along with a good majority of the population. its hard to find some real news. last night the major story on cnn was concerning a missing girl or something...

i don't know, its hard to really say how i feel about this. but i don't think the news persons are really doing their job anymore...

You're right. I can't find a descent news sourec anywhere. I don't trust fox nwes as it is mostly editorial, although I think O'Reilly is pretty fuckin' funny. I don't trust CNN. I don't trust any gov't run/funded news outlet such as the BBC or the CBC.

This is part of the reason I want to become a photojournalist. Half because I want to help the world, and half because I want to see the world for myself.

Oh god, prisonplanet is even more biased and unreasonable than Fox, only in the opposite direction.

It seems like people think that because Fox is stupid and biased, that means that places that say the opposite of what Fox says must not be biased.

> i think the media has fallen asleep

It isn't so much that they have fallen asleep, but rather their mission has changed from reporting the news to making money. Objectivity and ethics are now ignored in pursuit of more profit.
