We're the good guys, the other side is nothing more than evil scumbags that needs to be destroyed.

    I gave up on cable news a long time ago. You're right about CNN when it first started. But CNN, like the other cable news networks found out just reporting on the days news events, the happenings couldn't even come close to filling their 24 hour news requirement. Then political talk shows began to emerge and dominate all three. Crossfire with Tom Braden and Pat Buchanan was one of my favorites back in the 1980's. One from the left, the other the right, a debate in a friendly, civil manner. Now, how low has CNN fallen, now there is no opposing view ever presented than the one they now advocate. Same for the other two.
    I still watch them all because I pay for cable and have a dvr but yes I do agree with you. Local news is entertainment too after the 1st 5 mins or so of someone being shot, killed, raped, kidnapped ECT... It's really a sick sad world.

    I totally agree.
    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.
