Default Main Stream Media

The SCOTUS decision about the firefighters is out there now and I just checked and the front page stories holding the prominent position with picture are
CNN - Michael Jackson
FoxNews - Michael Jackson
MSNBC - Split (Michael Jackson/Bernie Madoff)
ABCnews - Supreme court firefighter decision with Michael Jackson's BET tribute right below it.

Come on MSM, this is ridiculous. We have TMZ for MJ/Billy/Ed/Farrah. We are supposed to be able to rely on you for NEWS. If you decide Bernie Madoff is more important than the scotus decision, fine but enough with the celebrity BS.

My most trusted source of news. The Daily Show. He's sarcastic but he covers important stuff and is unbiased, he mocks everyone.

You write this like its a surprise. This country gets flushed a little more down the toilet every day. Wouldn't it be great if there was no such thing as television news? The only way to get information would be radio, paper, or internet.

The MSM doesn't report what's important. They report what people are interested in hearing about.

I admit I do enjoy watching the specials about how MSM doesn't report news anymore. It's the pot calling the pot Black but doing so in third person narrative.
