is there any place left just to get a report of what actually transpired in the world today?   without the commentary and "experts" telling me I should think??  I like watching  the news (or at least I did...)   but theres so much "editorial content" on any of the networks that I can only watch for the 1st 10 minutes before my eyes roll back in my head

 

and I don't give a shet about which side you're on......   the grandstanding to try and win political points with viewers from both sides is out of control.   just tell me the facts and I can decide for myself what the impacts are going to be.

 

(and please don't start the fake news bullshet with me either-  Fox was the 1st network to overtly skew "their version" news to attract viewers.  they are in the same boat with MSNBC or whatever....  just form the other side of the aisle)

Bloomberg seem to have more news and less commentary. The only time they have some commentary is when it comes to financials.

Not the case.

 

The "unbiased news" thing was a farce from day one, and it has a day one.  The whole idea came from the rise of radio, and true mass media in the the 20's and thirties.  And some of it was nothing more than a gimmick to sell ad time.

The WW2 reporters crowed from the rooftops about unbiased news reporting, while at the same time they submitted all their stories to the weasel gummit censors.

The New York Times in the late 30's, the arbiters of unbiased news, had reporters in the Soviet Union writing stories at the behest of Roosevelt (D) to make Marxism look okee dokee-and they did it for years.  Free speech has never been unbiased, and it never will be when it comes to social and political issues.

 

Heres a question (s).  Why the hell would you think it would be unbiased?

Some people talk of news.product as if they are owed an unbiased observation.  Why?

 

If a tv nmews show had no personal bias in it whatsoever.  Actually it cant even exist, its baloney.  What makes you think it could?

I never said unbiased, but less biased than many other outlets. Do you know how bloomberg makes money. Literally millions if not billions are made everyday based on their reporting. Its in bloombergs best interest to have as little bias as possible.

Where do you get your news from, and who do you think has the least bias.

The least bias would be  photo on twitter or instagram.

I get news from lots and lots of sources.  I have 2 news aggregators running on this laptop.  Hot Air and Bad Blue.
