Actually it is well documented that the rest of the media reports generally from a liberal slant and within the last 10 years, what ever the Dems what them to report.

No, not what the Dems want them to report. The reporters personal beliefs may color their reporting, in the questions they ask, and how they summarize the responses, but the press has certainly reported a lot of stuff that embarrassed the Democrats.

There was a pretty well documented study out of a S. Calif University which shows that the news that was currently reported at the time of the study was decidedly liberal in slant and delivery. And it has gotten even more so IMHO since Bush became president and now that Obama is in office. Fox was the first news site to take a decidedly conservative slant. Since then there are none others. As screwed up as they have been delivering some news they really have not screwed up any less than CNBC or some other more liberal sites. It is hard to argue with the ratings as well, they have been at the top of the Cable News networks in popularity for quite a while. Pretty telling for one conservative news source among all the rest that are liberal. Eh, if I don't like something on tv I just change the channel...

I don't disagree that it's gone to hell since Walter Cronkite retired, Just saying the Democrats don't dictate what/how they report.

Yea, certainly an over statement on my part, but hell, within the last two years it would be hard to tell the difference.

There is always the suggestion from Sharon Angle, the Republican (tea party) Senate candidate in Nevada:

"We wanted them to ask the questions we want to answer, so that they report the news the way we want it reported."

No different than the lapdogs who sit in the White House press brief every day.

Breaking news! Not.

Quote:
The director general of the BBC admitted Thursday that his organisation had been guilty of a "massive bias to the left" but said "a completely different generation" of journalists now works at the broadcaster.

In reference to 30 year ago ....

"In the BBC I joined 30 years ago, there was, in much of current affairs, in terms of people's personal politics, which were quite vocal, a massive bias to the left," Thompson said.

""Now it is a completely different generation." he added.

This morning I heard an ad for luggage, which is sold under the "Amelia Earheart" name. I figured I was about as likely to buy Amelia Earheart luggage as I was to buy Jim Jones powdered drink mix...
