    Context helps (depending on what you're watching and why). You don't need "analysis." You can (and should) do that yourself.

    What's wonderful these days is that regardless of where you get your news, there are checks and balances so that you can clarify, confirm, or reject a particular POV or analysis.

    Most regular people don't have the time nor the inclination to "analyze" issues themselves - they'd have to be following the news extensively and closely, as well as possess some historical knowledge, in order to put events in the proper context and analyze them appropriately. Hence why news organizations rely on panelists and experts, most of whom indeed have their own biases.

    While this is true, many people are simply too lazy (physically, or intellectually) to check these sources out for themselves. That's more on individual people than the news media though.

    If Fox "news" "fair and balanced"?
    Is that a freaking joke.
    Was fascist propaganda "fair and balanced" to the Jews?

    I know why they do it. That doesn't mean it "needs" to be done. Everyone has a responsibility to keep themselves informed.

    Fox is fair and balanced based on the collective perspective of its audience. Candidly, I think it has lurched to the left so I almost never watch it.
    I love the smell of burning moonbat in the morning.

    Agreed.

    It's also true that with the constant barrage of information, there's no way to keep up with every single story/issue the way you'd like. But if you work outside the home, you do hear the better-to-partially misinformed opinions of others and have a computer too. I can't imagine why anybody would rely on one source of information.
