But like you, I am old enough and been around the block probably more times than one can count. I know when I am being feed news or news with a slant towards one party or the other. I seen it way too many times.
    Well, I consider switching from Fox to CNN like switching from organized chaos to confused and discombobulated. But you're certainly not alone. Some people believe those sources are gospel.

    I'm in a minority, really. A lot of people accuse me of being UnAmerican for listening to and getting information from the sources that I do.

    Today....it's damned if you do and damned if you don't no matter what ya do. There's always somebody to slice and dice what somebody else does or doesn't do.

    It does seem that all of our news organizations to include print all have an agenda of some kind or another. I would imagine other news organizations from other countries do also. It probably has always been that way, only today it is far more noticeable.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Yeah, and when it comes to politics there is no such thing as civilized politics. It is barbarians at war.

    Yea. I used to watch the news every morning. I got tired of it. When I was in college I watched a local fox affiliate every morning just to see what was going on in the area. Now I just don't care. I'm sick of the news, and so I read the Internet when I need too. Hell I got an app for cnn that I use most of the time

    I occasionally watch it myself, but purely for a few laughs.
    Liberals have always built their truths around emotion, so it makes perfect sense that they would gravitate to the Daily Show for "news".

    As an example:

    A news program runs a story about Secretary of State Kerry advocating the destruction of Israel.

    If you then ask random viewers who the Secretary of State is then those who saw the story above could answer the question correctly but still be wrong on Kerry's views on Israel.

    If we are lucky, they will not watch any source of "news".

    Not to mention, Greg Gutfeld is killing it right now. Libertarianism is catching like wildfire across college campuses everywhere....Greg has the ear of many young people.

    I AVOID Fox News.

    Listening to a expose of the failings of this administration and the progressive ideology gets depressing.

    The Daily Show doesn't really report the news so much as make fun of the news. And let's face it, the news deserves it. They are particularly hard on CNN for being, you know, incompetent. They also, obviously, give Fox News a lot of **** for being... full of ****.
