    Al Jazeera America hangs in there with the BBC. Major difference is the depth that AJ America goes in their reporting.

    I think you mean,
    “And that’s the way it is”, Cronkite’s famous sign-off. But I’m sure he didn’t use it that day.

    “Rightist”?? Are you serious?
    The news has become such a leftist support agency it’s not funny.

    I was in college and watched the news in the Student Union.


    We know there was more than one gunman. We saw on the news when the police came down the ‘grassy knoll’ carrying two rifles. Those rifles had spent shells in them.

    Oswald was in the building.

    So, there were at least three gunmen involved.

    Conspiracy theories? HA! it is the truth.

    Unbiased journalism also died many years ago. All we have now are clones of Ron Burgundy.

    Sigh. Maddow isn’t an “anchor”, she’s proudly, purely opinion. FYI, O’Reilly is opinion, too.

    Maybe that’s your problem… you don’t know when you are presented with facts versus opinions.

    Murrow, Cronkite, Huntley-Brinkley, and some other journalists who became “news anchors”, starting with 15 minute programs, then 30 minutes became a “big deal” on TV. Now, we have hours on end of talking heads, many, if not most “airheads with good hair”, spouting opinion, not news, and the listeners can’t discriminate.

    Add in the fact that we have a largely “functionally illiterate” population, and “print” is out as well, being replaced by web based “picture news”. Noticed the comparison of Google “losing out” to the competition. Google searches brought up articles with lots of text, and function. The “competition” brought up web pages with lots of pictures, but no real content.

    Dumbing down America is very profitable for many folks, like big oil, big pharma, big insurance, and just plain big corporations of all stripes. It’s another offshoot of “Citizens United”, actually.

    MIght well be good to bring back the “fairness doctrine”, at least on the all PUBLIC airwaves, owned (in theory) by the people, not “government”.

    Ruff, you’ve probably noticed they (Aljazeera America) actually have journalists, and when it IS a “discussion” program, they make extensive effort to have every viewpoint represented by someone knowledgeable on the issue, and able to present a spectrum of information: very different indeed!
