    God, I hate Rick Sanchez.

    Every fucking word that flies out of that smug maw of his is coated in such a rich, velvety arrogance that makes me wish someone would break his nose and ruin his vain image.

    What was he there...entertainment reporter? Weather girl?

    Did he do "does it work Thursday?' or "battle corruption" at city hall?

    Probably.

    The only fair, impartial news services in the country are NPR and PBS; everyone else is fighting for ratings. FOX News obviously caters to the conservative market, as far as I can tell, CNN markets to the borderline retarded.

    That's not a jab at left-wing people, it's just that CNN treats their viewers as if they're mindless drones, plugged into a machine that feeds, cleans, and shows them CNN.

    No, but it means their journalistic integrity is about par for the course these days. Starting such rumors is quite a bit different than correcting them, as any newspaper man knows, and very few people would see the retraction, whereas the initial story was flying around the blogosphere all day.

    CNN isn't the worse - at least they retracted it.

    But it was the bias of one of their reporters that let it fly in the first place.

    I'd put MSNBC as far left, most mainstream journalists as slight left because the role of journalist itself tends to be 'liberal' instead of accepting of the status quo that is most often 'conservative, and Fox of course far right.

    Mark Sheilds is unbiased? Bill Moyers?

    Come back to reality friend.

    on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being Alan Keyes and 1 being Dennis Kucinich...

    2 - MSNBC
    3-3.5 - three majors
    3.5 - PBS/NPR
    4 - CNN
    7 - Fox

    While NPR may be "more intelligent", they are certainly not unbiased or impartial. No such news organization exists on this planet.

    Of all people in all media, Nancy Grace's continuing employment is the most mystifying. I can't imagine anyone of any political persuasion not wanting to throttle her each time she opens her mouth.

    Every time I see her on TV, I have to grab the remote and change channels before the urge to shoot the TV overwhelms me.

    Well considering NPR receives a portion of its funding from the federal government, and Democrats are more likely to spend more money on them they are very much beholding to the left wing of the party. That is part of the reason I didn't understand Air America. The left pretty much has that already with NPR.

    You get the idea of a 1-10 scale, right? a neutral source would be a 5.

    I have Fox about as far to the right as the Big 3 are to the left. Try to keep up.

    Those are pundits, not reporters. :rolleyes:

    The fact that the left-wing attacks NewsHour for having Republicans on 2:1 to Democrats definitely points to the show being balanced.

    NPR actually has a person whose job is to make sure stories are balanced. They've given more air time to the Cato Institute and Heritage Foundation than anyone I've seen this side of Fox News.

    Shields may be a pundit, but Moyers is a journalist.

    PBS unbiased!? :rofl:

    Not hardly.

    I remember Rick Sanchez from WSVN. I'm amazed he has made it all the way to CNN. I wonder who he blew to get the position.

    It doesn't take much to get a job there.

    It takes even less to get one at FOX.

    So what nightly news program did Moyers work on as a journalist then?

    One doesn't need to work on a "nightly news program" to be a journalist.

    Besides his considerable body of work for PBS (Bill Moyer's Journal, NOW with Bill Moyers, etc), he worked as an editor and chief correspondent for CBS Reports.

    One could argue that no journalist works on a "nightly news program". :bailey:
