    Depends on whether you are looking at viewer’s left and right, or (newsguy’s) proper right and left. Ah, artful ambiguity! –Oh, of course we must assume this is set in New York City, because that’s the center of the universe.

    I don’t get the meaning of “All the news that’s fit to walk on eggs”.

    BinaryWiener, it means the media doesn’t want to upset the money people.

    They don’t want to upset the advertisers, and they don’t want to upset the customers, and they don’t want to upset the politicians, and they don’t want to upset the rival media… But that’s everyone.

    So they react at the first perceived eggshell crack, and then the reaction to their reaction that cracks the egg more, and they make matters even worse by trying to fix their self-inflicted crackup…

    So NPR and CNN and MSNBC punish commentators for doing their jobs and end up with egg on their faces.

    Binary, it’s the result of political and social correctness. The slighted imagined slur or innuendo can get a columnist or news anchor fired. Then they have to make fools of themselves by apologizing. And, of course it’s in New York, Sisphos. Where else in the world do they still have sidewalk newsstands?

    Coyoty does it again with a succinct and astute answer. If you can speak another language, try any other country’s news.

    Right! And the language they use at the BBC is remarkably similar to ours!

    Bill is right about the BBC. Believe it or not, another pretty decent news source is Pravda.

    The most influential sources of news in this country are the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the three major TV networks. If that’s your idea of far right, conservative, corporate owned media, your position on the political spectrum must be somewhere to the left of the former planet Pluto.

    Study after study proves that the “main stream meadia” is very left of center. The country is right of center and moving right. Fox is beating everyone else because they come closest to telling the complete truth and not ignoring stories that don’t fit their agenda (see NY Times). People not only want to hear the truth, they also don’t want to hear socialistic ravings like MSNBC. But, you liberals know better and the other 80% of the public is stupid (in your mind). That is basically what Obama keeps saying. “The people are too dumb to know what is good for them”.

    Remember the difference between the ‘Far right, conservative corporate’ ownership and the Editorial staff of the media outlets.

    It doesn’t mean that the media has to parrot the official party line, but they do have to walk on eggs to avoid upsetting the delicate sensibilities of the Big Money people.
