And to cap off their slide into ignomity CNN blows the headline on the biggest story of the year. Oh the shame. Heads need to roll.

That really makes sense as to why their ratings are down. Think about it. If they have the best unbiased news people will beat a path to their door. I left them a little after Katrina. The finish for me was the 24/7 campaigning for Obama. Their coverage of that election should have put them on the Obama donation list. I blame them for the biased reporting they did that I believe got him elected. Enough is enough and they need to rethink how they report. I don't want to hear just one side of the story. All Republicans are not bad and all Republican views are not wrong.

I have to disagree. I believe most people strongly prefer to get their news from sources that fit their existing point of view.

Yeah, that was absolutely ridiculous. I agree that someone needs to be fired over this. Both CNN and Fox screwed this up.
CNN, Fox jump the gun on Supreme Court health care decision - The Washington Post

Everyone was trying to be the first intead of taking the time necessary to digest a complex issue.

And let me guess, if you try to watch it online from the US, they block it?
What a bunch of turds.


We're just not worthy of anything but their rubbish infotainment channels.

So come on, home team. Get your mojo back!

It's a very long decision. And some of the phrasing is weird. Roberts and Ginsburg clearly knew they were writing for the history books. I'm still reading it and I've been at it since this morning, but I have a one year old and a house to run. Presumably they have lawyers and reporters being PAID to read this stuff.

They tried to chart a course between the partisanship of Fox on the right and MSNBC on the left, but they overlooked the fact that most people *prefer* to get their news from sources they agree with.

People shouldn't be agreeing (Or disagreeing) with the news anchors.


News should be completely unbiased and not favor any side. The government really should step in here and regulate these channels. At least at the level that they used to. They could even call it a matter of national security.
