Liberals think that Fox News Channel isn’t fair and balanced because FNC doesn’t only tell the liberal angle to stories.
Unfortunately, I did read a bit farther, but when I got to his joy at spotting the "Liberal Government of Canada" logo on Canadian TV because it means the program receives "Liberal government of Canada" funding, I stopped and chose instead to look up synonyms for "asshole" in my Thesaurus.
Funny-I would think that news is completely objective with the only angle being what actually happened. Wouldn't angles be opinions?Wouldn't opinions make it not "fair and balanced?"So, lets say a girl gets raped and murdered in Iraq by an American soldier and he is caught in the act and arrested-so no question about his guilt. That is the story. What is the "liberal angle" to that compared to the conservative?Liberal 1: The hateful American soldier sought revenge on a family after his friend was killed by insurgents so he took a little girl and raped her in front of her family. This is what happens when you start an illegal war.Liberal 2: The american soldier was a victim of groupthink and under a lot of stress from seeing dead bodies so he couldn't help himself and was temporarily insane when he took a young girl and raped her in front of her family before killing her.Conservative 1: Its a number, a casualty of war. People get raped and murdered all the time.Conservative 2: He will burn in eternal hellfire and die by lethal injection for raping and killing a young girl.I mean, these are "angles" but they are opinion, not news. So how can news be "liberal" or "conservative" if its really news? I'm confused. Can you help my poor little liberal brain?
Consider the following:MP such-and-so just tabled a private member's bill to make the penalties for drunk driving stronger.versusGay MP such-and-so just tabled tabled a private member's bill to make the penalties for drunk driving stronger.- Both may be perfectly factual, but the second introduces a piece of irrelevant information that alters the reader's perception of the MP, and indirectly, the bill itself.
