    Here's the difference, then:

    A president of the United States, even one as bad as JFK was, is an important historical figure. The general public is going to want to know exactly what happened, and they have a right to know.

    This guy on the luge is a nameless athlete to practically everyone, his death has no impact on anyone's life, outside of his personal circle of family and friends, and the only purpose See BS served was their salacious desire to be titillated by someone else's trauma.

    Professional news services should not cater to the sense of shadenfrued (sorry, can't spell German, the sense of elation at the discomfiture and bad luck of others) but rather establish a reputation for presenting the essential and relevant facts. See BS hasn't been a professional news orgnanization for decades, not since Walther Cronkite decided to interject his personal views on the Vietnam War.
    I don't disagree on the difference. The only thing I would add is that this was not limited to CBS. I know ABC and NBC showed it as well. I'm not sure if the cable networks did or not.

    Yes, ignore the facts he presents, rush straight to judgement.

    That's what lefties do, after all. They follow orders.

    Then again, Rush is right on most issues also, which is why the Left hates him, too.

    ABC still has a news show? Amazing! And gee, NBC put explosives in the gas tanks of cars to show how they explode...without telling anyone about the pyrotechnics...who would think they're not reliable, honest, and open professionally run news organizations, hmmmm?

    Wait. See BS, ABC, and NBC all touted the Messiah and in general have been shills for whatever Democrat runs for office since Carter, haven't they? So who in their right mind wastes their time on them?

    Why don't you take your discussion on the relative merits of US TV new stations to the Media Bias section. What about the luge incident?

    If Fox didn't show it, then good for them; a point in their favour.

    Anyone who dismisses Beck either hasn't watched the show or is too ignorant to heed his lessons. He ain't perfect, but if he wasn't good, the losers on the Left wouldn't be ordered to hate him.
    So you are saying he is good since people hate him? No, he is just a joke and it is so easy mocking him, like George W. Bush. I'm not hating on him just laughing on him. For example, I don't hate on bad basketball players I just like to laugh at their idiotic plays sometimes. Don't get it twisted, people mocking him doesn't equal him being good. I can't believe people take Fox news seriously.

    What do you think of the media showing video of Olympic luger's deathThis is not a debate about FOXNews. It's about the airing of the video depicting Nodar Kumaritashvili's death. Remain on topic or receive consequences

    What about it?

    AS I STATED, See BS is a crappy excuse for what was never a very good news organization and they aired the unnecessary detail because they're not a very good news organization, but an excellent propaganda organ for the Left.

    Since, by the way, this thread is about media bias, and that's what I'm discussing, what's your big problem?

    Perhaps in the sense of a bias towards more and more sensational news stories?
