I used to enjoy the news, to keep up on what was happening in the world. In the last few months I actually started paying attention to what I was seeing, I no longer take ANY of it as fact. It seems to be more of a show rather than the news.
The bias that is on CNN and FOX is becoming so bad, I can't believe any of them. I don't have a certain party, I like the best person for the job, now I don't know who the best person for the job is. CNN shows only good things about Democrats and bad things about Republicans, FOX shows only good things about Republicans and bad things about Democrats.
When did the news go from showing what was happening in the world, to "Let's entertain the public"? I get enough entertainment from wathcing other shows, why do I need to be entertained when watching real life. Now there not even showing all the facts.
We no longer get to see what actually happened, we get a reporters view of what happened. The reporters used to ask 'both sides of the story' to witnesses, now they cut out anything that would appear to be 'good' in a situation. Only show the bad.
It's no wonder we get upset and bent out of shape when a 'criminal' is shown having committed some heinous crime, then when they go to court, they get off. Because the so called "News" only reported what they wanted us to hear, not the facts.
I think I'll boycott the news, not like my little point of view is going to matter, but it's what I am going to do. Until they can start telling the truth and stop making it biased, I'll stop watching them.
