Who’s your newscaster?

February 26, 2009 - Blaine Hyska
Watching network coverage of presidential news sickens me.

Network bias is obvious. Period.

One newscaster will gush with praise, while another will doubt and question. Where do they get these people?

Mistrusting news reports is popular sport in America. No wonder. Everyone, it seems, has an agenda.

Media bias is a growing problem. No good Democrat will ever trust Fox News, and any Republican worth his or her salt has blocked NBC News from coming in their living room.

It’s that bad.

Internet “news” hasn’t helped, either. Pinheads post alleged facts to a gullible public. Accountability is a thing of the past.

Americans ought to demand to know the political leanings of all the major news anchors. Are they party members? Did they contribute to a political campaign?

In sports, it’s one thing to watch Packer-Bear highlights on Channel 3, and quite another to watch WGN Sports. It’s the same with politics.

Bias? We’ve all got them. People in the news business need to separate personal beliefs from the news events.

That’s easier said than done. No one’s perfect. Some personalities clash, and others click.

For what it’s worth, I’ve cast my vote for Republican, and Democrat presidential candidates.

I’ve voted for both Republican and Democrat state and local candidates.

I’ve never felt the need to become a member of a political party. I’ve never given a candidate anything but a vote and a handshake.

Who’s your newscaster?
