    Why does the press seem disappointed that Syria agreed to turn over their chemical weapons?

    We have a really odd mainstream press in this country, acting like they actually want another war. What do you think?

    The press is a disgrace, most are filled with lies and propaganda. Such as painting an evil picture of Bachar Al-Assad and blaming him for poison gas attacks without proof. Of course they want a war, this is when most people are glued to their televisions.

    Because nothin' drives up TV ratings and sells papers/magazines like some good old fashioned bloodshed.

    I do not know what you are referring to. The media I review seems dumbfounded and cautiously elated that Russia and the U.S. are working with the UN to disarm Syrian chemical weapons.

      This is what I'm referring to . . . of course, Jon Stewart could have edited the press reaction to add humor, but it still makes you wonder:

      I did not get what you where saying until I turned on Fox News. Everyone interviewed had been against intervention (it's documented on videos) when Obama was for it. But when Obama came out for negotiations, now all those people are demanding war.

      That sounds like those interviewed aren't thinking very well for themselves - like they're just parrotting the opposite of what Obama was saying, letting him think for them. Where does that leave us in terms of news we can rely on?

    .....Seriously?

    The press want a war. It gives them something to talk about and a lot of free views. The press doesn't care about America or Americans they only care about climbing their ratings ever so slightly higher.
