  • What happens when you think Fox News is what free and independent media is all about

    Tea Party darling Sharon Angle is yet another gift that keeps giving. She has already achieved Dr. Frankenstein status by bringing nearly moribund Harry Reid back to life in the Nevada Senate Race.

    Now she's one-upped her her dash away from the media at her own press event.

    The Tea Party favorite made another peculiar remark during an interview with Fox News on Monday evening, explaining that she wanted "to have the press be our friend," and "ask the questions we want to answer so that they report the news the way we want it to be reported."

    I suppose if you only watch the so-called news anchors at FNC lob softballs to Soundbyte Sara, Bachman, Newt, and Rove--or pose such questions as "Many Americans disapprove of Obama's Afghan policiy (or economic policy or immigration policy or energy policy), what do you think?--then you think that's how free and independent media is supposed to work.

    Proof she's not ready for prime time. She should have just followed the Bush method of planting friendly reporters in the press pool, and then only calling on them during conferences while the rest of the media willingly goes along with the charade and raises their hand and voices to make it look like she's really taking random questions. (whenever somebody tells me the MSM is in bed with the Dems, I always rebut that with this fact during the Bush White House years, the most pathetic era for journalism in US history).

      so are you telling me the MSM is not biased at all? Sure there are "opinion" shows done by commentators, but are you seriously trying to convince people that the hard news anchors don't tilt heavily in one direction or the other?

        Tiggsy, news anchors are mindless sheep that you can trick, buy off, or intimidate at the drop of a hat. Witness the run up to the Iraq war if you'd like proof of that.

          There plenty of "news anchors" on both sides that don't ask tough questions. The fact that Angle said this publicly is obviously stupid but its the way things have been done on both sides for what seems like over a decade now. You shouldn't be surprised.

            “One thing that we can learn in this lesson that I have learned and Rand Paul is learning now is don’t assume that you can engage in a hypothetical discussion about constitutional impacts with a reporter or a media personality who has an agenda, who may be prejudiced before they even get into the interview in regards to what your answer may be — and then the opportunity that they seize to get you.” - Sarah Palin
            Let's face it. The media is out to get you if you're a 2nd amendment tea partying tax slashing get government out of my medicare conservative.

            The evidence is undeniable.

              Riiiiiight....

              I'm not even going to ask the obvious follow up question for fear of the conspiracy theories it might bring out.

                No conspiracy at all. Media people are mindless idiots. What part of that do you disagree with?

                  The part where they're lockstep to the left. They're basically lobotomized leaving the left side of their brain in and the right side is pulled out.

                  Come on. Everyone knows this already.

                    The Iraq comment and the part about this not currently being the most pathetic era of journalism. But whatever, I'm not continuing down this road for the same reason.

                      What about the original post would anyone actually be surprised about?

                      That's not a left/right wing issue, it's just a fact that that's the way major media works these days.

                        She said what every politician and official wants to believe, it shouldn't work out that way, yet sometimes it does. Some reporters would rather be buddies with these officials and don't want to upset them. Upsetting them could mean exclusion from a future scoop or story. It's a fine line....

                          bingo... except replace "sometimes" with "practically always" and you've got it.

                            So which way was it when Katie Couric asked Sarah Palin what she reads on a daily basis? Was that kissing up? Or was that carrying water for Obama?
