On the surface the BBC enjoys guaranteed independence, the freedom to make programmes without worrying who they embarrass. Look more closely and you’ll see how, quietly and stealthily, the Tory Coalition Government is planning to change all that. With the eager help of Rupert Murdock of Fox News.
A real journalist should be objective and detached, as well as incisive and thorough. There are so few of those anymore.Which news is better? Fox, MSN BC All stations have an element of bias in them partly because the sponsors or shareholders in these stations are biased.BBC will never report a good story about Zimbabwe;Al jazeera is biased against Israel,it will always paint the Jewish nation as sadists and anti Islam, voice of America will never tell you about the atrocities committed by American military at Guantanamo Bay on terror suspects; CNN is very economical with the truth when it comes to U.S issues.I don’t know much about Fox but my take on this has always been to listen to several stations and in their effort to outdo each other I get clear picture of the news item.
Actor John Cusack has called for a “Satanic Death Cult” to rise up against Fox News and certain members of the Republican party. Fox weren’t amused, though their response was amusing.
Barack Obama and his “Gate Keepers”, Emanuel and Dunn, are fighting against the rising tide of Fox viewers. With news today smearing lines between reporting facts and stating opinion, the White House hopes to show us the way by guiding the average American over what they deem as the stony roads of the right wing “voice” of the GOP. But what if we already know where those stony roads lead… and like the trip?
