I pretty much have turned off the TV.

The bias on copy writing/editing is pretty bad from the supposed capital "J"ournalists.

Because we know what it means when the media shows tapes starting in the middle and proclaims one party is an innocent angel and the other is a bad evil horrible guy
If I ever get interviewed by a TV station, I'm going to have someone recording the interview with their phone. That way, if the station edits it to make it sound different than what I said, I can post what really happened on YouTube or FB or whatever.
7 did this to a friend of mine. A few years ago Jonathan Carlson interviewed someone I know. What was on TV was edited to sound nothing like what my friend was saying.
I forgot about him... he was annoying got some reason... I can’t remember why.

Alicia the Hutt just did an anchor bit talking past the video of the latest gangster pointing a gun at the cops and getting shot, and shading that Chief Craig needs to get fired

Trying to talk past the fact he had a gun and noting with great anchor concern that protests are calling for Craig's firing because of the terrible rash of police shootings.

I am sure she will do it again, they repeat all morning

You simply can NOT believe anything that the Swamp Media says today.

Are protests calling for Craig’s firing?

Way back when...News used to be 1/2 hr of Local and 1/2 hr National. That's it! Just enough time to provide enough of what was needed to know. Today, it's 24hrs. and there can't possibly be that amount of vetted news to relay. As a result, opinion and editorializing took over with lies and misguided emotion. I could easily deal with 1 hr of news. It's the 23 hrs of BS that comes with it that I cannot deal with.
Shameful really. Broadcast journalism used to be a much more honest profession.

I looked at freep and det news and neither of them said people wanted Craig out. Before I turned away she said there was a press conference this afternoon that wants him fired, so....

I hate to break this to you, but the opinion and editorializing was always there. They just lied about their bias back then. Walter Cronkite, “the most trusted man in America”, was a partisan democrat who was personal chums with democrat politicians. Dan Rather is currently a disgraced, unemployed left-wing hack, but at one time he was supposedly “America’s news man”.

I hate to break this to you, but you might want to check out an old Dick Cavett interview with Cronkite before his retirement. You might learn a few things about his political leanings.

Bill Bonds used to editorialize right in the copy of stories... it also sounded a hell of a lot better...

The Detroit News did a long piece. It is the small hate whitey group talking a lot of crazy and dancing around the fact they lie after every encounter. Unsaid was that it is the same small group 7 was pushing during the early protests that turned into mini riots.

The News did point out the real civil rights groups want nothing to do with this group
