Nominations: Find me a truly objective news source
Here’s my question: Where can anyone find a source for news that does not have a political slant? Is there one? Is it even possible? I sit here, trying to get informed about the real issues of this election, and everywhere I turn, it’s getting so incredibly obvious that almost every news source has an ulterior motive, a political slant, an agenda, a dog in the race.
Olbermann and Maddow and Matthews — I love them, but no way. Actually, I can’t even watch Maddow and Olbermann any more. Way too biased. I’m actually waiting for Olbermann’s head to actually explode one night, on-air. No way in hell that FoxNews is allowed on inside my house; the button for channel 48 is permanently banned, and actually physically ripped off of the TV. CNN is okay; I do like that Christine Amanpour woman. NY Times seems skewed way to the left, even though I read the online version every day. Tom Friedman is my favorite.
It just bugs me that I feel that everyone — every news program — is subtley trying to sell me on their skew. Please recommend an objective news source — a publication that’s truly out to find the truth. And bonus points for anyone who can steer me to the guy that’s truly responsible for this Subprime Mortgage Hell that we’re in right now. I’ve got a brand new set of garden shears that I’d love to try out.
