Memo to NBC: What the hell is wrong with you?

Iím tired. Truly. Iíve grown weary of trying to defend the indefensible and explain the inexplicable. For years, people have stomped their feet and pounded their fists and snorted ďLiberal media bias!Ē and Iíve always tut-tutted and shooshed them and said, ďNo, no. Calm down. They meant well.

I think that the journalistic profession attracts idealists, and I think that idealists tend to be liberals.

But in the information age, people who like their news served up with a conservative bias can tune in on Fox News, or Clear Channel Radio. They can read the Post in NY. They can read National Review.

And so there are conservative journalists, conservative bloggers, conservative videographers, etc.

If the writer doesn't like NBC, he doesn't have to watch NBC. He doesn't have to stomp his foot and throw a fit about it.

All of which has NOTHING to do with the blatant LIE accomplished through SLEAZY editing. Justify it all you want. You would be wrong.

I said this a while back: What we call "news" is nothing more than 80% opinions followed by 20% fact.

Neutral, impartial, unbiased...you're not going to get that with the major "news" corps here.

And both conservative and liberal media outlets and personalities sometimes insert opinion into their news and sometimes stretch or obscure the truth or even manufacture their own truths.

Anyone who says that the problem is the liberal news media hasn't watched or listened to Hannity, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Coulter, Fox News, Fox News Radio, Clear Channel, etc.

I will listen to critcism of THE news media with an open mind. I find criticism of only the liberal or only the conservative news media to be only partially true.

This had nothing to do with "inserting opinion." Seriously - did you even read the OP?

Brooklyn Knight alluded to "80% opinion, 20% fact."

My comments have to do with the blinders the writer is wearing because:

- it is not a "liberal" media problem. It is just as offensive in conservative media.

- he has other choices. If he wants to listen to news with his perspective mixed in, he has many choices.

For some reason, all I can hear in my mind is Rush doing a nasal, sarcastic impression of "ANdrea MITchell, NBC NEWS, WASHington!"

I'm curious, Fantine---would you say the same about someone who, oh, say, had a problem with the way the Holy See is handling the recalcitrant American nuns?

"If they don't like the way the Vatican does things, they don't have to follow the Vatican. They don't have to stomp their feet and throw fits about it."

Do enlighten us---I'm intensely curious.

This was the position I used to be in with NPR. Then I turned to it and heard some of their talking heads talk about how "the Vatican is punishing nuns for helping out the poor, while they have never done anything about the priests who abuse children." When I heard that I said "that's it, I'm done with this garbage," turned stations and never looked back.
