It has been a while since I last watched FOX News. I tuned in for about 20 seconds today. I now remember why I do not watch it. Being a media watchdog I would probably feel obligated to report the little bits of deception that I find or point out the non-journalistic approach to reporting news about things they want you to decide. Well, not that I am lazy but FOX news is too much for one person to watchdog. In 20 seconds I could not find one single sentence that adhered to the standards of journalism. They did not only sneak opinion into their piece (on the UNâ€™s report on human rights violations by the US in Iraq), but they stated virtually every sentence with an opinion or an insinuation. I wonâ€™t even talk about the misleading information within the report itself.
When you watch or listen to a â€œjournalistâ€ you are not supposed to know how he or she feels about the information being reported. Can you say this about any â€œjournalistâ€ you see on TV? I bet you canâ€™t! Think about it!
