Skip to comments.Network News Chiefs Worry About Fox News Channel (Bwahahahahaha!!!!!)
Posted on 11/17/2004 6:46:48 PM PST by Paul Atreides
The news presidents of ABC, CBS and NBC all agree that the rise of the Fox News Channel poses a threat to their organizations. Appearing on a panel at Stanford University Monday night, CBS News President Andrew Hayward remarked, "Fox has added an important new ingredient to the news system: they mix news and opinion. ... Fox is a blend of news and talk radio on TV. That is a powerful dimension." As reported in the college newspaper Stanford Daily on Tuesday, each of the news chiefs voiced similar concerns. Said ABC News President David Westin: "The problem is when news and opinion are mashed together. ... It is starting to push out the truth telling, which is undermining our core mission. We have to keep the central goal telling the truth as we see it." Each of the executives said that they now must deal with public preconceptions that may clash with the actual facts. NBC News President Neal Shapiro observed that the network had presented military experts who maintained that there wouldn't be enough troops in Iraq to pacify the country following the invasion. "This didn't seem to resonate with the American people." Westin agreed, noting that polls show "that an alarming number of people still believe there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq."
No, the Mainstream Media never ever ever inject opinion into their news coverage.
by offering truth and opinion foxnews is undeminding their effort to blend the two in order to create a truth that is their opinion. their liberal opinion.
As opposed to our own stations, where we never provide any news to balance out our leftist indoctrination sessions.
Do they think we are that stupid or do they really think they keep opinion out of their newscasts?
"Fox has added an important new ingredient to the news system: they mix news and opinion..."
...which are clearly differentiated/identified.
As opposed to the networks, which mix news and opinion and call it "news".
I done with 'em all.
I still could take the weekend version of NBC News with John Siegenthaler.
But this Sites incident has just about ended my watching of MSM news.
Until Nov. 2008, if Dan Rather gets to do the CBS News election-night coverage!
They have NO CLUE how their words sound to "US"
They want the truth to be only what comes from their mouths. What they did not mention was the internet as the voice of the people.
The MSM's ben asleep longer than Rip Van Winkle. That liberal kook-aid must be strong stuff!
NBC/GE stabs the Marines in the back.
ABC/Disney stabbed John O'Neill (Swifty) in the back and ABC also portrays Christian housewives as whores in Desperate Housewives. The blond who portrays a whore always has a big cross on which is ABC anti-Christian subliminal message.
FNC is king!
I talked to a guy who once told me "I never lie, I just tell my version of the truth."
That's it exactly! They have NO idea that their own so called news reports are nothing more than opinion. They still don't get it. It's not that FNC is so conservative, it's that the alphabet channels are so liberal, so opinionated that anything to the right of that looks conservative.
Pray for W and Our Troops
yes...picked that up right away...as they see it my butt!
We have to keep the central goal telling the truth as we see it.
Isn't this called OPINION?
Just more blahblahblahblahblah from these crybabies in the MSM. They, like the rest of liberals, blame EVERYONE else for their failures, but never take a look in the mirror! Crybabies, waaaawaawaaaaawawawaaawaaaa!!!
That's the problem for the Dems and the MSM right there.
