    News outlets, desperate to seem “fair” and “balanced”, trumpet bias that doesn’t exist. A Good Cartoon.

    When I first read about this thing I had to shake my head in bewilderment.
    -
    Imagine you have a population of 75% “snorks” and 25% “blurbs”. You do a random sampling on which kind of sandwich they prefer. Turns out it’s BLT, but then the makers of some other sandwiches point out that your sample included 75% “snorks” and only 25% “blurbs”, and they prefer ham-and-egg sandwich.
    -
    WHERE IS THE CONTRADICTION IN THAT???
    -
    If this is the makeup of the population you are sampling and the sample is truly random then you must get the same “bias” in your sampled group. That’s not even high-school math, that’s just plain and simple LOGIC, for Pete’s sake!

    Investigative journalism in the United States is dead. The toughest questions the sitting president has ever received from a media outlet came from a forum on Univision last week. Meanwhile this week, 60 Minutes tossed the President softball questions and avoided pressing on any controversies. If reporters would actually do their job and seek the truth, people wouldn’t be turning to media outlets like Fox News in order to find out what is going on in this country.

    You really think that Fox News is objective. Objective reporting is no longer an option. But then of course the ones you mentioned from the left are opinion shows to begin with – but I guess that doesn’t matter to you.

    @eclodyrag

    “Dragging in”? Yeah, that’s what they do,
    and then they shout over them or cut of their
    mikes like O’Reilly. MSNBC in contrast has
    Joe Scarborough, a former GOP House
    Representative. What does Faux have, as
    staff? Nothing! Because they couldn’t
    even live with Colmes from “Hannity
    and Colmes”. That’s weak, man, real weak…

    Har! When even a Fox survey showed Mitt losing in THEIR poll, of THEIR right-wing people, they went nuts!


    Haven’t been getting MSNBC all that long, switched to satellite, have noted a distinct trend that they are far more accommodating to “right-wing” folks, than Fox is of any real “lefties”. Also, watching the “major networks” coverage of news, a distinct “conservative” bias comes up over and over in the language used, and “slant” to the stories. It is a reflection of their corporate ownership, despite the possible views of the on screen “talent”.


    While MSNBC IS a “liberal” lineup, to say that the “mainstream” media is liberal, is simply, delusional.

    @hanmari

    Did you know that Univision is owned by NBC/Universal?
    Just go over to www.nbc.com and scroll down to the bottom.

    @Gore Bane

    Gore Bane said, “…when Obama cuts half a trillion dollars from the Defense budget. Not only contractors will get pink slips, entire local economies that support them will go down the tubes…”


    I am SO with you. Obama needs to spend MORE and MORE taxpayers’ money. Grow the economy, spend, spend, SPEND. Give more people jobs. Build up more debt!

    KETIRA: NBC/Universal doesn’t own anything. Comcast (51%) and GE (49%) does.

    NBC is so in the tank for Obama it’s embarrassing. MSNBC is so over the top they embarrass NBC. And Univision embarrasses both of them. (Wait! That’s interesting… That could be read two different ways. I meant Univision put both NBC and MSNBC to shame. There, that’s better.)

    This drawing is great, right down to the ice cubes,half eaten sandwich, napkin dispenser and perfect perspective, and the Spot-on message doesn’t hurt either…
