Media's role

Hey, all, Melissa here.

Something a little self-indulgent today, since as a reporter, I'm obviously concerned with the way audiences view our role.

Have fun watching the debate tonight! Look forward to hearing what you think on that tomorrow....

Do you trust the media and their covering of the election? Do you think there is a liberal bias? Is it a problem for commentators (and bloggers...) to have a bias? What should the media be doing differently?

The American media is biased. How much and in which direction can vary from station to station. Fox News is the epitome of biased, unbalanced reporting. Adding insult to injury is how dumbed down and fluffy the 'news' they report is made. I have no doubt those higher up lean on the reporters to say what they want the public to hear. When I want news I can trust, I go to the BBC.

Hahahaha - the BBC? You have got to be kidding me! They are the worst!

Anyway, despite everyone's opposition to Fox News - it is the only conservative (or at least, non liberal) news outlet on television. And it hasn't been around that long. Prior to FOX, the only news you could get was from a liberal slant. That continues to be true today in the paper media (newspapers etc.).

The BBC is the worst? No, that would be Fox News. Yes, it may be the first with a conservative slant but all that means is it's at least as biased as network news. I have a very low opinion of and regard for the overwhelming majority of the American media, be it radio, television, or print. The BBC is a far sight better than American media.
