Main Question or Discussion Point
I think NPR radio is the most unbiased media. What do you think? You don't need to reply if you think Fox is unbiased :)
Rather, the least biased news sources are the ones who put the most effort into presenting relevant facts regardless of what viewpoints they might support.The only unbiased news sources are the ones that agree with my viewpoint.
I deleted my post. I agree with Russ that this is politics, and I'm staying out of this arena. See you in GD.Astronuc said:And I agree with Chi Meson's assessment,...
I wish they'd do a better job of dispelling the illusion that issues only have two sides.Compared to other media, NPR's news program Morning Edition and All Things Considered does a pretty good job of presenting both sides.
If you mean "revelation" in a practical sense rather than an ethereal one, I hope you might share it in the thread we currently have dedicated to the subject....the revelation of the 'secret' Iranian nuclear program and the G20 summit in Pittsburgh.
NPR said:ACORN has drawn renewed conservative scrutiny following a right-of-center film maker's undercover sting stunt in which he and a beautiful female conservative dressed as a pimp and prostitute, respectively, walked into ACORN offices in Baltimore, Washington and New York and received advice from workers there on a number of ways to advance illegal schemes.
It's also important to keep in mind that ACORN's workers are coming from the same low-income neighborhoods the organization serves, with all that entails -- poor schools, high crime and the sorts of social problems that have been documented for decades.
So the flaws conservatives are pointing out about ACORN are not so much problems associated with that organization per se but more about the problems of being poor and minority in urban America....
NPR said:There was no doubt that Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts had died if anyone listened to NPR in the days after his death late on Aug. 25 from brain cancer. Between Aug. 26 and 30, NPR ran 53 stories.
Sure, http://www.globalpolicy.org/images/pdfs/0308opinion.pdf" [Broken]. They all want Saddam, Uday, and Qusay back from the grave.NPR said:...Any Iraqi that you speak to on the street will tell you, and I ask them this question, was the war worth it for you? Did this invasion, do you feel, give you a better life? And across the board, I didn't find one Iraqi who said to me, actually, I'm glad this happened. Most Iraqis have paid the price of, you know, if you want to call it their freedom, in blood, the blood of their relatives.
Boston Globe said:The liberal Nina Totenberg, on the other hand, suffered no ill effects for saying, during the flap over General Jerry Boykin's views of Islam and the war on terrorism, "I hope he's not long for this world." When the startled host asked if she were "putting a hit out on this guy," Totenberg backtracked and said she only wanted to see him expire "in his job."
Rather, Acorn was represented as being willing to enable child production and illegal immigration by some conservatives who duped some Acorn workings into offering advice which whose conservatives represented as such, which is reflective of "poor schools, high crime and the sorts of social problems that have been documented for decades" as NPR stated.Acorn's recent YouTube flirtation with enabling child prostitution and illegal immigration is http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2009/09/acorn_versus_conservatives_bat.html" [Broken] here to concerns about being poor...
At least one of the reporters in the video (the popularized web video) was not a conservative at least by claim, maybe neither them, nor do I care. I am not referring to any third party 'representations' of the video, but only the statements I see on the video itself by the employees and for which they were immediately fired.Rather, Acorn was represented as being willing to enable child production and illegal immigration by some conservatives who duped some Acorn workings into offering advice which whose conservatives represented as such, ...
Pftt. Pay attention. Picking and choosing what is relevant, and what presenting ones ideology in the best light is not unbiased.Rather, the least biased news sources are the ones who put the most effort into presenting relevant facts regardless of what viewpoints they might support.
Buckley, though he shared many libertarian ideas, never described himself as a libertarian. For instance, he never went along with libertarians on drug legalization or abortion. I am unaware of anyone who describes him as a libertarian now....People like Buckley are often relegated to the trash-bin of "libertarianism" these days ...
