Lately, Keith Olbermann, on his MSNBC news show, Count-down with Keith Olbermann, reported Fox News as the “worst people in the world. ” He believed that the Fox Reports Channel is blatant right-wing propaganda. He also known that President Obama, in a recent TV interview (the same interview, in addition, as the now-notorious fly-swatting incident, in which, relating to news reports on MSNBC, NBC, CBS, CNN and elsewhere, the Chief executive demonstrates his “remarkable fly-swatting skills”) claimed that there was at least one news channel dedicated to undermining his administration at all costs. Olbermann advises that the President was referring to Fox Information. business
Back in the day when the Republicans handled both houses as well as the Presidency, a period that might well go down in record as a modern-day Darkness Ages or Reign of Terror, the Fox Media channel used to be the bastion of credible news. So much so that other news companies were too afraid even to question their expert.
Fox News, owned by Australian media magnate Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., experienced started on the philosophy that conventional news options like CNN and network news operated on a principle of a delicate left-wing cultural bias caused by the educational and sociable milieu of their correspondents. The solution that Monk News apparently proposed was to dedicate an information channel to supposedly “fair and balanced” news coverage. “Fair and balanced” became their watchword, but it soon proved to be ironic. With time, their apparently objective news coverage has been exposed as right-wing propaganda that was fairly blatantly pandering to the Bush administration while they were in power.
This kind of brings us to MSNBC’s news lineup. MSNBC is a news channel that is produced as a joint venture, as the name suggests, between Microsoft company (the monolithic software icon founded by Bill Gates) and NBC. Their collection of stories shows theoretically offers us the substitute to Fox News, but, as implied by Keith Olbermann, what they are really offering us is left-wing propaganda that panders to the Obama supervision.
The tragic consequence of all this government pandering and institutional propaganda is that the number-one injury in mainstream news coverage is credibility. Where are the Woodwards and Bernsteins of today, using their stunning expos? s of problem in high places? Not at all at either Fox Media or MSNBC.
Perhaps the response to where we can find credible news resources lies with CNN–still dreary and presenting the fa? ade of objectivity while concealing a subtle left-wing bias–who now, apparently, places to blogs, Twitter feeder and Facebook posts to supplement their on-site reporter reports. CNN even stimulates you to submit recreational videos via the “iReport” section on their website, which allows them to feature the videos on their news shows after a process of vetting and verification. In reality, in the ongoing Iranian uprisings, where mainstream media are being banned and extradited by the severe Iranian regime, western information sources are experiencing to rely on Twitter feeder, websites and amateur online video from Iranian citizens as their news sources.
This kind of brings us to the argument that mainstream media organizations have recently been making resistant to the Blogsphere, especially in the wake of such recent films as State of Play, taken by Kevin Macdonald, specifically that the Blogsphere is made up mostly of amateurs who are out of their depth, whereas if you are looking for cutting edge Woodward-and-Bernstein style in-depth credit reporting, you will find it only at the major news organizations who may have the skills and resources available to support that kind of stories coverage.
