Well, I wouldn't say that we take a random sample to assess whether the country's media is biased.
I have a few 'journalists' in mind...
Let's take a look at 3 young turks of the news media, and analyze their political inclination (persuasion).
- Chuck Todd: Moderator of NBC's weekly Sunday news program, Meet the Press.
- George Stephanopoulos: Today he is chief anchor and chief political correspondent forABC News, co-anchor of ABC News' Good Morning America, and host of ABC's Sunday morning This Week.
- Jay Carney: After more than three years as President Obama's press secretary, Jay Carney, 49, joined CNN on Sept. 10. Personally recruited by CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker, whom Carney met during the 1990s when wife Claire Shipman was White House correspondent for NBC News, Carney says he's not thinking about a long-term TV career. Rather, the former Time magazine D.C. bureau chief is keeping his options open while sparring with the likes of John McCain.
Well, does my assertion that these youthful democrats manifest a distorted and biased opinion impress anyone? It simply baffles me how they can get away with calling themselves journalists, when they should more appropriately be called political agents promoting a party's agenda.
Well does America have a government controlled media?
Just in case you had any doubts; By simply examining these three newscasters, I hope that now you can see that it does not.
