Do you remember when they where essentially a real news channel?
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

I think  it changed a bit during the first Gulf War, ca. 1991, and then a lot when Dubya became President, and then full monte under Trump.

If they get rid of the obvious sycophants and partisans, they could be again with some decent leadership.  I'm not sure there really is a market for "balanced cable news".

Isn't that about how long ago MTV was a real music channel?

This.....is CNN.  They consider this "news"?  Why the obsession with Fox?
The only thing this proves is that those at CNN are complete narcissists...

Holy cow.  That is one example, of many, why I find CNN to be ridiculous, it's not just bias, it's the absurd things they cover and chyron.

I mentioned this to my wife who noted that with Biden and Harris basically in hiding while all the news from Dems (e.g. the border) is bad, they've got nothing else but to focus on Fox anchors.  Sounds about right.

SNIP:
Good grief this man is an imbecile and a joke.  At first I thought all those tweets and mentions of Brian Stelter complaining about the lack of Fox News vaccine selfies was just a spoof.  Eventually I had to go look. Alas…

The 35-year-old CNN pundit actually did an entire segment on his television program complaining about Fox News hosts not posting selfies while they were getting COVID-19 vaccinations.  This new generation of media pundits are psychologically troubled, and their emotional growth has been apparently stunted by their ideology.


I am developing a theory on the mass disappearance of intellectual matriculation amid an entire generation of people.

My hypothesis starts by tracking the ages of people in 2007 when the psychological narrative engineers created the Potemkin village (complete with Greek columns) of Barack Obama… “planet healing”, “tides begin to fall” etc. etc.

In 2007 Brian Stelter was 21 years old.  My theory gains another affirmative data-point.

Stelter:  "I cannot believe that the people at Fox aren't nearly as narcissistic as we are here at CNN!"

I can remember when people thought they were a REAL news channel but that was before they had competition to tell the other side.

It was started by Ted Turner who married Hanoi Jane the traitor bitch so that should tell you all you need to know.

CNN started broadcasting in 1980 and was essentially all news as was the headline channel. The reported Who,  What, Where, When and Why with very few words that showed bias and gave two sides to stories that needed it.

Ted married Jane around 1991 and CNN started showing a little more bias which led to the creation of Fox in 1996.


 As late as '' 2001, the Media Research Center stated, "CNN certainly is less biased to the left than ABC, CBS and NBC".[27] However, it stated in the same report that "while much of its day-to-day reporting is more balanced than that offered on the broadcast networks, its news judgment usually follows the liberal agenda with conservatives relegated to reacting to it"  
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”
