I find it interesting that anyone would claim that either of these channels have any sembalance of journalistic eithics whatsoever. It’s all about making money and gathering viewers. PERIOD. If these so-called ‘journalists‘ were true journalists, they wouldn’t be so polarizing. Ethically and morally, telling the truth as best you can is the responsible way to be (and how you’re trained to be as a journalist), but we all know that was thrown out the door quite a while ago. It’s divide, conquer and do what you need to pull in those ratings…just like it always has been. It just allowed to be more blatantly obvious now.
All the finger pointing isn’t really helping either. That’s what they want you to do…regardless of which side of the aisle you fall on. Speaking of which, aren’t you tiring of all the ‘us vs. them’ stuff? It’s ridiculous. As if there are only two sides to a story? Most of us are a mix of many beliefs, attitudes, concerns, etc. They try to simplify it so that we’ll argue and fight with one another instead of focusing on who’s really pulling the strings. Those people with the real stroke don’t see red, blue, Dem, GOP, lib or conservative. They only see green. So, if the point of your argument is to say that there is bias in every cable news channel? I agree.
However, if you’re buying into another “Libs bad/Cons good” or “Dems good/GOP bad” situation, you’re falling for the biggest trap there is…and you’re wrong. No one’s worse or better and we’re all Americans who bleed the same. Come together, not apart.
