(Yahoo)   Hey, remember the bad old days of "yellow journalism" when ultra-rich robber barons owned almost all the newspapers and openly slanted the news to advance their ideological agendas? Good thing those days are long gone and never coming back right?   (news.yahoo.com) divider line 21

Not sure when the whole myth of "objective journalism" started.

Sure, individual journalists can choose to subscribe to some kind of ethics, but it's not as though there are any laws that regulate journalism.

And the news media is a business. Plain and simple. If objective coverage sells, that's what you'll get. If setting puppies on fire would give them more business that's what they'll do.

grimlock1972: when i read a news article i tend to filter out the slant and take in the few facts that remain.

Everyone has their own agenda. Sometimes 'journalists' have more than one....no one believes that there is unbiased journalism anymore.

Because these, and another ten thousand outlets are all hide bound conservative news venues, owned by gazillionaires bent on securing a religious dictatorship which will outlaw San Francisco park nuidity and free Sandra Fluk contraception aids.

What facts did she distort? Unless you're going to try to convince me that "act of terror" does not mean "terrorism", in which case go put Rush's balls back in your mouth.


Dude, that argument went out the window when SHE said she got it wrong and Romney had it right...so go put Obama's balls back in your mouth.

Congratulations. You're officially too stupid for the internet. Few can achieve this, but by dammit you succeeded.

Living in San Diego I'm glad I can get the Multiple Award Winning L. A. Times delivered to my door every morning.

The S.D. Union/Tribune has been a right wing mouth piece for far longer than I've been around in San Diego, and that is a lot more than 40 years.

/Remember San Diego is a very conservative area of the nation.

Callous: Is this the thread where we pretend that all of the media is involved in a left-wing conspiracy and only Fox News is honest or the thread where we pretend that Fox News is proof that all of the media is right-wing?


The important thing is you've managed to appear superior to both. You are very revolutionary indeed.

Baryogenesis: I thought this type of crankery was limited to blogs and youtube comments.

The editorial page named Obama the worst U.S. president and predicted a second term will result in "Arab terror states" attacking Israel, "death panels" rationing health care, income tax rates between 60 and 70 percent for many Californians and an attempt to get taxpayers to pay for late-term abortions. It warned of an effort to erase "In God We Trust" from U.S. currency.


Given the incredible accuracy of the far-right's predictions of Obama's first term, I have no reason to think that every single one of these things won't happen.

brantgoose: My love of satire and humour (Mark Twain, Ambroise Bierce, Charles Hoy Fort, H.L. Mencken, MAD magazine, Steve Colbert, etc.) has led me to be extremely suspicious and derisive of claims of objectivity and to suspect any belief held in common by Democrats and Republicans, Liberals and Conservatives, the Government and the Opposition, or any two persons whom you would not trust separately and individually. All is Maya, Delusion. Especially the news. The Buddha taught us that, or perhaps he meant to, but forgot because he had a lot of nothing on his mind.
