It boggles the mind that people think they’re practicing real political advocacy by watching any major corporate TV channel, be it Fox or MSNBC or CNN. Does anyone seriously believe that powerful people would allow truly dangerous ideas to be broadcast on TV? The news today is a reality show where you’re part of the cast: America vs. America, on every channel.
One point he made that I have also argued regards objectivity and how a good news article should include all reasonable sides of an issue. "Some say A while others say B," is something I don't hear especially in the MSM Russia! story, or if they are feeling generous the truth is buried at the very bottom of a story. Fortunately the alternative media spend much time debunking the MSM while unfortunately the MSM merely ignores the alternatives.
