God Damn it....

Is it too much to ask that we have one news show that has the sole purpose of keeping the country informed not from a conservative or liberal slant...

I want the news that informs me with facts and not polls or feelings or two partisan hacks arguing from some position developed by ass hats who could give a god damn shit about the welfare of the country...

Please, please someone do this.

We need a well informed electorate to make intelligent decisions when we walk into the voting booth.

There is a place for that partisan crap, but it should not slant the news to fit a political agenda...

God Damn it, is that too much to ask?

2. Hmmm...

I sometimes have CSpan as background noise.

Also, try Al-Jazeera, they are surprisingly neutral in regards to who they slam in their reports.
I usually listen to NPR but it seems to have lost some of its luster to me.

3. How about PBS? The Lehrer Newshour is seemingly unslanted...

Or so it looks to me...

But I so agree.

You know those partisan "newscasters" are obeying their corporate masters. They don't want us to be well informed, and that is a shame.

4. So you buy the "conservative" meme that the mainstream media is liberal?

Myself, I prefer the Colbert notion that "reality has a well-known liberal bias."

6. I'm mainly talking about the cable news casts....

The nightly news is too short to be of any real use....

7. I've not watched it but I understand BBC World does a good job. I don't know if...

they have a specific US-centered newscast.
