He also noted that President Obama, in a recent TV job interview (the very same meeting, incidentally, as the now-notorious fly-swatting event, in which, according to news records on MSNBC, NBC, CBS, CNN and somewhere else, the Head of state shows his “exceptional fly-swatting skills”) claimed that there was at the very least one news channel dedicated to undermining his administration at all costs. Olbermann proposes that the President was referring to Fox News.
Back then when the Republicans regulated both houses and also the Presidency, a duration that might well drop in past history as a modern-day Dark Ages or Power of Fear, the Fox News network was considered to be the bastion of credible news. So much to ensure that all various other news firms were too scared even to question their authority.
Fox News, possessed by Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., had started on the premise that traditional news sources like CNN as well as network news run on a concept of a subtle left-wing cultural bias resulting from the educational as well as social milieu of their reporters. The option that Fox News obviously recommended was to commit a news network to apparently “fair and well balanced” news protection.
This brings us to MSNBC’s news lineup. MSNBC is a news channel that is produced as a joint endeavor, as the name proposes, between Microsoft (the monolithic software application giant started by Expense Gates) and also NBC. Their lineup of news programs apparently supplies us the choice to Fox News, but, as indicated by Keith Olbermann, whatever they are actually offering us is left-wing propaganda that courts the Obama administration.
The awful effect of all this government pandering and also institutional propaganda is that the number-one casualty in mainstream news insurance coverage is trustworthiness. Where are the Woodwards as well as Bernsteins these days, with their sensational exposÃ©s of corruption in high locations? Most definitely not at either Fox News or MSNBC.
Probably the solution to where we could discover credible news sources lies with CNN– still bland and presenting the appearance of objectivity while concealing a refined left-wing predisposition– which now, apparently, consider blog sites, Twitter feeds and Facebook posts to supplement their on-site correspondent records. CNN also encourages you to submit amateur videos via the “iReport” part on their internet site, which permits them to showcase the video clips on their news programs after a procedure of vetting and confirmation. In the ongoing Iranian uprisings, where mainstream reporters are being prohibited as well as extradited by the authoritarian Iranian program, western news sources are having to depend on Twitter feeds, blog sites as well as amateur video clip from Iranian residents as their news sources.
This brings us to the disagreement that mainstream news organizations have recently been making versus the Blogsphere, specifically following such recent movies as State of Play, directed by Kevin Macdonald, namely that the Blogsphere is composed mainly of amateurs which are out of their deepness, whereas if you are seeking advanced Woodward-and-Bernstein design in-depth reporting, you will locate it simply at the major news agency that have the abilities and resources at their disposal to sustain that kind of news coverage.
The truth– at least two of the so-called significant news organizations are committed to producing partial publicity that quite shamelessly panders to political leaders while the 3rd is considerably turning to the Blogsphere to give its news sources. As for Woodward as well as Bernstein, they are both retired and composing publications for a living.
The moral of the story appears to be, therefore, that if you are looking for advanced journalism, avoid the news networks and, rather, visit the Blogsphere!
He likewise kept in mind that Head of state Obama, in a current TV meeting (the very same job interview, incidentally, as the now-notorious fly-swatting event, in which, according to news records on MSNBC, NBC, CBS, CNN and in other places, the Head of state shows his “impressive fly-swatting skills”) declared that there was at the very least one news network committed to undermining his administration at all costs. Fox News, owned by Australian media tycoon Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., had begun on the facility that typical news sources like CNN and also network news operated on a concept of a subtle left-wing cultural prejudice resulting from the educational as well as social milieu of their reporters. The services that Fox News evidently suggested was to commit a news stations to supposedly “fair as well as balanced” news insurance coverage. Their schedule of news programs apparently supplies us the alternative to Fox News, yet, as implied by Keith Olbermann, whatever they are really providing us is left-wing brainwashing that panders to the Obama administration.
