Now, how can that be...with all of the fair and balanced (not to mention “Leaning Forward”) news we get from the boobtube?

What’s the surprise? I can get more news from FR in 30 seconds than ABC Evening News in 30 minutes.

Only benefit TV news has is live breaking-news video. When some internet site finally nails that one, TV is done.

They still have broadcast TV news? Could have fooled me.

While posting on a global warming thread it hit me like a ton of bricks: If we still got all of our news today as we did in the 1980’s, everybody would “KNOW” that man-made global warming is a serious problem and we must take draconian measures to save life on the planet as we know it!

But the internet allows both sides to be heard and the more intilligent can much more accurately determine what is truth.

Kinda makes you wonder what other things “everybody knew” that were hoaxes back before the internet.

And, of course, of the 66% of people who get their news from TV, 80% get it from Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show”. (I get mine from “Red Eye”.

Brian Williams’ smirk alone is reason to never, ever watch NBC.

The last time I watched TV news, with their beauty model talking heads, I just laughed...It’s become a pathetic wasteland, of totally choreographed and rehearsed streaming propaganda...My TV went back off after about 5 minutes.

What is this “TV” thing, the author speaks of?

the main function of the network evening news these days is to assure the continued flow of royalty checks to Jerry Seinfeld for his reruns which are on the other channel...
