  • Only to the point where they cannot find a way to twist words or news around to fit their bosses thinking..
    They are totally biased against anything rpublican and seem to think the only thing right is to try to make republicans look as bad as possible. They jusy pick and chose the smallest little thing and if they think it is bad they will push it and push it so much that many of the small minded people actually start believing its a big deal...

    For the BEST OPEN SIDED VIEW OF THE NEWS WATCH OANN NEWS...

    OANN NEWS tell it is like it is,, they actually show the videos of what people are saying be it DEM OR REPUBLICAN...

    They actually go threw fact finding records and PROVE what they are reporting it TRUE...

    Sometime it is good for the Democrats, Sometime it is good for the Republicans... BUT THEY ACTUALLY PROVE what they report..

    In case you do not know the OANN stands for Only America News Network

    Give it a try a few times and dont just base it on ONE 5 minute listening section as they do have different reporters, etc. NOT ALL IS GOING OO BE WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR but it is the TRUTH about whatever the subject is at the time..

  • Are commercials for beer, sugary snacks and butt-firming exercise routines "honest?"

    You do realize that they must adhere to Federal laws regarding the claims they make...right? So since they are required to be "factual" does that automatically make them "honest?"

    The simple fact is that CNN is...and always has been by design...a selling tool. As early as the 1970s Ted Turner foresaw a time when TV would be an immersive, 24-hour flow of constant stimulation, and no one would ever be more than an arm's reach away from a TV screen.

    He hired behavioral scientists and conducted countless focus studies to determine the average attention spans of consumers and to learn what stimulated their buying impulses. He hired marketing consultants to work along side his editors. I toured the CNN studios in the late 1980s and saw the multiple studios (some no bigger than a closet where an anchor sat in front of a green screen) where the same story (with the same facts) would be reported in a dozen different ways depending on the intended audience.

    Did you know the reason CNN is considered the "standard" for airports and hotel lobbies was by design as well? Turner partnered with the makers of big-screen TVs and paid airports and hotel chains to display them as advertising, requiring that CNN's feed be the only thing broadcast.

    If you traveled abroad during the Obama years, you may have noticed that CNN broadcasts were often highly critical of America's policies....especially in Africa and the Middle East...two regions targeted for massive economic growth in the coming decades. Longtime correspondent Christiana Amanpour was virtually banished from CNN USA programming after she blamed Obama for the Syrian refugee crisis....but remained a regular contributor on CNN International's feed...

    Bottom line..... when dealing with any media outlet you should ask yourself this: am I being giving information, or being led to have a strong feeling so that I buy something?
