Really what is you opinion. I understand news is a great thing, but I'm not talking about that, rather on how they try to shove there opinion down your throat as facts. I know a lot of people say Fox News does it, but they're not the only ones that does it. I've seen CNN and MSNBC does it too. Is there a reason why they do it?

I feel like people have started to label outlets with journalistic integrity as slanted to give their choice of Fox News or MSNBC legitimacy.

The problem with Fox News isn't their biased opinion. It's their deep connection to political parties. The sheer amount of influence the Republican Party has in FN disrupts the significance of the first amendment.

It's one thing for a reporter to have an opinion, it's another for a congressmen to contact a network executive and hand him a leafnote on what his programs should say.

I'm beginning to think that there might be some sort of sexual implication of the phrase, "Shove it down their throats."

I don't really trust them :3 I'd rather read stories from people who were there, or if nothing else listen to multiple news stations and find out what all of the facts with all of the opinions :P Then try to form my own.
