I specifically remember one where CNN called out Fox News on the air because they were both reporting on the same protest outside the white house, and Fox used footage of a different protest to make the crowd look bigger than it really was...
    I don't post here much, so I was unaware. It only goes to show, the media isn't concerned about informing the masses. Ratings and political spin are the main priorities. If it means trumping up a story to accomplish those objectives, so be it.

    It seems to have coincided with the 2000 election fiasco. I mean, news was always biased, but after that, it seems not a single **** could be given about objectivity anymore. I don't know if you're aware, but Rupert Murdoch's son bought a newpaper in England and tried some of the same junk that's widely accepted here over there. They caught him tapping into phone lines, which spurned an investigation into the paper, and after all the biased crap they were doing was uncovered, the newspaper was shut down. It's interesting how the U.K. had zero tolerance for subjective news, but it's widely accepted here. Cultural relativism I suppose...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...
