First of all, Hi!

My name is Tobias, and i'm from sweden. I'm new here, and hope to be able to stay here for a while and participate in discussions which do not exceed my intelligence. :)
I've been reading about the troubles you guys are experiencing way over in USA, as well as iraq, afghanistan and other locations, i guess..

Like the topic says, I'm writing an essay for a class in school right now, and I was wondering if any of you would like to help me in some way.

The essay is about how (/whether or not) the media in the usa has lost objectiveness. I am trying to focus on a couple of examples, but i have still to figure out what those are. Any tips on examples of how the media in the usa are losing independency and/or perspective/objectiveness would be greatly appreciated!
And since this is a school essay, i'm going to need reliable sources to try and make my essay as reliable as possible. Whenever someone tries to present new theories that are not widely accepted, the opposition only needs to say two words to discredit the whole essay; conspiration theories. Unless, of course, the essay has reliable sources..
I'm sure i didn't need to tell you this, but anyway..

As i said, any help at all is very much appreciated!

Regards //Tobias

Welcome Tobias!

Don't underestimate the value of your opinion or your curiosity. There is no intellectual arrogance on this board. All opinions and questions make us think more.

Regarding the media, they have not lost their objectiveness, they have completely collapsed.

Bias is not as dangerous as deception. What we have here is a lack of information. It is one thing for the media to take sides it is another thing to withold information so that people can not make up their own mings. This is the problem. The combination of shaping public opinion using bias and information control.

We are in big trouble here. This is why I started this website.

I hope you stick around here. It would be nice to hear what you have to say.

Welcome aboard!

I'll add my welcome, Tobias. You'll like it here and I hope to see you often.

You've definitely come to the right place for truthful information about the news media in America.

Good luck on the essay!

Catherine
