If you watch either CNN or Fox and believe the spin they put on articles why?

    If you watch either CNN or Fox and believe the spin they put on articles why?

    It has just become routine for me to not really conclude anything until I have read both. The line up of regular experts is just disgustingly lopsided at both. For instance. Everybody knows about climate change, and everybody knows that we have some kind of effect on our environment. You would have to be nuts to totally deny our effect and clearly nuts to think the sky is falling next decade.
    Now come on people. CNN reports fire and brimstone shortly and FOX reports it is nothing to care about.
    How can anyone read either one and believe it is fully accurate?

    I don't watch either one. I don't have cable network programming. Oops! The only news with politics is my local San Diego channels that are of course network driven. I usually check Reuters, Washington Post, and Fox for internet articles. I feel I can gain perspective from those. I at times check the APnews too.

      I used the word watch but I only check them online. No live TV in my house. Looks like you have a good combination.

      I think where news comes from is always the key with political issues. The largest distribution of news is word-of-mouth in casual
      conversations. For instance, I worked from noon to 11PM. I never saw TV news or had time for internet.

      That is an interesting thought.I do notice my wife seems to get info that way.

      So, we may discover a person's opinion is formed by the trust relationship of those word-of-mouth conversations. In other words I don't trust such and such, so I don't trust what s/he said which fosters an opinion, thus a position with a vote.

      I don't know Tim. Gossip around the water cooler shaping our nation through vote? You have to admit that is scary.

      I don't know about scary. I do know it is not uncommon for someone to say vote for ________ asked for or not. Wa-La word-of-mouth. Why, our Q&A & Forums are word-of-mouth. Social media in my view is word-of-mouth. It is not journalism.

      No doubt you are right. Remember the telephone game? 10 people in a circle whisper into another's ear. By the time it gets around it is nothing like the original.But as I write this I think that the same is true with news. Very good point you make.

      That is a good illustration to use for word-of-mouth. How many times I can think of someone telling me something at work. Then ask them where did that come from. The answer; the news. Usually to confirm was asking another person. Word-of-mouth.
