    while Olbermann isn't as bad as Hannity and Limbaugh, he does the same style of sensationalist journalism. it gets ratings and ad dollars and that's the goal of corporate news.

    Yes but here's the difference:

    Would you rather have Truth presented like Shit?

    Or Shit presented like it is the Truth?

    Quick thread analysis:

    Every journalist is a hopelessly biased panderer and opportunist, unless he/she happens to reach the same conclusions that you do. Then he/she is a brave crusader for truth in a world of shady sycophants.

    I think there are some fairly objective news presenter types out there, but they don't really offer political commentary.

    I think it's useless to go after news reporters and presenters when it comes to the poor state of mass media. Go after the mass media oligopoly that hires them.

    BZZ I wanted to kill YouTube when I watched Meet the Press with Ron Paul.
