I won't let this thread become a Syria thread (we have some going already in Current Events), but I've never seen a slant towards terrorism in Al-Jazeera and I've read them for quite a while now. I equate them with BBC as far as quality of reporting, but of course their point of view is a ME one. I think it's good to know what that view is, even if you don't agree with it.
Again: bias exists everywhere. That attitude only makes you more likely to miss it.Or, possibly, you have some reason to be biased yourself and see bias where none exists.
That's probably the main reason I check Fox News: they report on different stories than the others and I want to see what I might be missing.I think this point is often missed. The very moment a pen meets paper - or a finger meets keyboard - the slant is evident: the writer believed it deserved to be reported. When nothing is written, that too is a slant: the writer found it unimportant.
