CNN more objective than FOX? vanity
08/28/2010 | self

Washington (CNN) -- Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck opened his controversial "Restoring Honor" rally Saturday by urging Americans to "turn back to God" and return the nation to the values on which it was founded.

"Something beyond imagination is happening," he told the large crowds gathered at the National Mall in Washington. "America today begins to turn back to God. For too long, this country has wandered in darkness."

All FOX could do is run a very anti BECK article written by the AP, indicating that ONLY 1000's attended.

FOX didn't even have the courage to write their own article. What's so fair and balanced about theat?

CNN, for the most part gave are very good objective review of what happened at the event and total attendance.

Quoting Beck:"We are humbled that you are here," he said. "The reflecting pool holds about 200,000 people. This field back here holds about 250- to 300,000 people. They are not only full here, they're full in that field, they're full behind me, and they are now across the street approaching the Washington Monument."

For Liberals and progressives, “turning to God” is always controversial to them because they don’t believe in God.

I would think that Fox would have to stay away from it to some extent. Fox always keeps a fairly strict demarcation between its reporters and its commentators, and Beck is a commentator. Too much coverage of him is to IMHO somewhat self-dealing for Fox. A bit of a no-win situation.

The CNN reporter on scene gave a plain factual account. The CNN “anchor” seemed miffed.

That's FOX for you. If they wrote their own article, they'd be accused to promoting Beck's event. Shocking, I know. But FOX goes out of its way to be unbiased.

You mean that Fox staff got together and said, “Hey, since Glenn is in the Fox family, maybe we should run a third-party story so it won’t seem as if we’re puffing him, as other networks would puff one of their own”?

Boy, how completely irresponsible of them.

Can you detect the sarcasm in my tone?

Fox has changed over the past few years due to Saudi shareholders. Prince bin Tal whatever has ownership stakes in EVERY TV network in the US except maybe CBS/Viacom. He is the Saudi King’s nephew.

Beck was really on Islam when he was at CNN. When he guy to Fox he biddied up with that slime O’Reilly. Both of them made fund of birthers.

I cancelled TV a year ago cause it all sucks, it is all propaganda and ALL the networks which own all the cable channels support The Imam, Islam and the Victory Mosque.

The only thing I could think of is Fox wants to stay away from Beck and being perceived IT had anything to do with the march. Fox doesnt talk about the Freedom Concerts. I understand their point.

My guess is that honest CNN report will be fired this weekend. If people think Fox is our friend then they are delusional. We have no friends involved in TV. They are all bad. Fox is slightly less bad.

True that, if you can catch the news before the spinmeisters have had at it.

Last I watched, international wee-hours-of-the-morning news was WAY different than it was after the political correctness police arrive at the studio.

The media is the media. The great thing is about today’s world is that I watched it on the Internet myself, along with 100,000 others, so I don’t care what the media says. I can respond to others with what I saw and not what I “learned” from the media.

Fox is in ‘self-destruction’ mode because of political correctness. Fox is so determined not to offend the left, it is over compensating. We’ve seen it for years in this society..same reason we have this president.

Yes, that is from today’s rally. The same pic was on Yahoo and on BBC.

It doesn’t even capture the whole crowd, either. It was amazing.

I suspect that Fox is bending over backwards and probably overcompensating, because you can bet that their enemies are scrutinizing them very closely. After all, generally, they would be preaching to the converted anyway.

I know who are shareholders in the companies and I know their agendas just like Bloomberg. He could be considered the 6th network.

Bloomberg wants access to Isamic financial markets and market data because of trillions. Today he said ALL 9/11 families support the Victory Mosque.

Murdoch used his newspapers to get Blair in power to Islamify the UK with teh Labour Party. Murdoch wants access to China and Islamic sat TV networks. He could be thrown off the sat in a day.

GE/NBC/MSNBC/CNBC wants to sell Islamic countries jet engines for airliners, turbines, water desalinization, MRI machines and on and on.

Time Warner/AOL largest shareholder has been Prince bin Tal aka Saudi Arabia.

CBS/Viacom may be the only one without Saudi money.

All the sports leagues NFL, NBA, MBL and NCAA fawn all over Obama between the stupid white guy commercials.

TV is the enemy. All of TV supports the Imam, Islam and the Victory Mosque plus has Saudi money.

Do some homework.

FOX tries to present both side. BECK will be on the Sunday morning program tomorrow...They just reporting what the other side said so it can be refutiated tomorrow...Wait! Watch and see!

PLUS:
BECK is his own person, he did this by himself and did not want it to appear that FOX was involved or it was only successful because they pushed it. It was covered without commercial on cspan, who do you think made that possible?

Last I watched, international wee-hours-of-the-morning news was WAY different than it was after the political correctness police arrive at the studio.

Actually, “most” of the “breaking news” is reported more-or-less accurately - and note that NONE of the “press-release” news-written-from-the-White-House/Pelosi is ever accurate - ... So you can get a lot of real information, but only until the ABCNNBCBS pundits and editors get their faux fax updates from the dnc.

The dnc rewrite process (to analyze the correct sound bites in front of test audiences ?) takes about 20-26 hours. Once th3e news is rewritten to the dnc’s satisfaction, THEN all the networks and print writers repeat the dnc’s version.

But the first 2 to 8 hours of a breaking story is usually correct.

.. and the nominees for the most sidesplitting coverage of the rally are

Washington Post
main photo of site taken shortly after daybreak
few young people
people concealed their anger
too close to the election to be non-political
black man counter protester attacked by (elderly?) white woman screaming "No signs!"; the man was covered with scratches from the attack
local sandwich shop employee told of violent reaction when out-of-town folks were charged sales tax, had sandwiches thrown in his face
Sharpton rally (the other half of the article) polite, reasonable, rational, all ages , intelligent, happy, non-political.. at least that could be inferred by the newspaper's employees' lack of any scrutiny of them.

. . . .

They say they hate him but I guarantee you this, if ANY of them are diagnosed with cancer they are gonna pray to God to save their lives. They’ll believe in God when a doctor tells them they have 2 months to live, then you watch them start screaming for God to save them. They are pitiful excuses for human waste those people are, and its an insult to even call them people, they are vermin. I pray to God every night for the safety and health of my family. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t do that.
