Cable news networks’ claim of ‘fair, balanced’ a deceptionAs an addicted 24/7 viewer of political cable TV news shows, it appears to me “truth on cable TV news” plunged a bit lower into the bowels of politics with their silencing of the voice of Keith Olbermann, host of “Countdown” on MSNBC.
The deceptions of “fair and balanced” pushed “truth in all media” closer to the “elastic snipper.” Truth’s neck is in danger. Snip – plop – splash and swoosh – to the lagoon.
Truth and the journalists who tell it are fast becoming the “oaffal” of “fair and balanced” and the media’s political demons who peddle it.
Folks, if you and I don’t demand its blockage, we may be “Foxed.”
