A Quick Tip by RabidChihuahua

First of all, I'd like to say that I don't really like any of the American news outlets, since practically all of them slant one way or another and present the news the way they want you to see it or read it instead of just showing it as it is.  Regardless if a news outlet slants to the left or right (politically speaking) the fact that they slant in any direction is what annoys me.

CNN is no different from the rest, since they not only cover stories of no importance, they make them front-and-center for the sake of ratings (such as covering Kim Kardashian's short-lived marriage), while truly important stories (such as US military personelle getting killed in Afghanistan or Iraq) are left as mere tickers scrolling at the bottom of the TV screen.

Go to the BBC to get the straight dope.

CNN used to be a whole lot better. I don't find much to entice me anymore and I rarely watch.

I'm a morbid cynic who thinks very, very differently from most other people. Chances are, if the majority says X is the greatest in its category, I'll disagree with that notion, because I tend … more
