    Wow... Talk about people who think it's OK to present propaganda as news....:wow:

    News people are not supposed to be social activists on their customer's time....

    They're supposed to be whatever we pay them to be.

    No such thing as unbiased news and there never has been. The only way to get unbiased news is to read a story from as many sources as you possibly can. News.google.com is great for this. You can see the same story told from newspapers worldwide. Once you've read a story from 5 unique sources you get a better idea as to what is going on.

    If you think watching CNN, Fox or any of the others will get you an "unbiased" view, you are very sadly mistaken.

    Very true. I like to take a look at what the foreign press is saying about issues also.

    Maybe -- maybe not.

    If your read a report on the same topic from The NY Times, The Washington Post, the L.A. Times, the St. Petersburg Times, and the San Francisco Chronicle, you've likely still gleaned only crap.
