I am disturbed by all the news services, they all focus only on news that fits their agenda, with some like CNN and MSNBC taking that to the extremes. Nobody seems to take the time to fact check either.
Lol, wut? How did you not include Foxnews in that statement, and say it with a straight face?
They did it first, and still do it best, but man, MSNBC was always somewhat close, and CNN went off the deep end. It's been a slow burn, with them scrambling to fill time when there's nothing to talk about, like the 24 hours after Newtown when it was all they could discuss despite there being nothing new to discuss, or the Malaysian airline, but now they're showing they totally forgot how to do news and just do dumb opinions. For every decent journalist they have there are 6 Wolf Blitzers. Which still makes them more honest than Fox News (who isn't more honest than Hannity?), but also more inept, and just unwatchable.
Oh, I agree that CNN and to a lesser degree MSNBC are corporate whores, but at least it's just greed that drives them
Foxnews is in another class of propaganda. And despite what the right wants people to believe, MSNBC is not the left's equivalent of Foxnews. They're definitely left-leaning, but they are not the mouthpiece for the DNC.
