    The media has been taught to present both sides, even when there is essentially one side. This is not ony unfair, it is bad journalism. But unfortunately it happens all the time.

    I am disappointed that NPR usually takes this tact as well. They need their funding from congress and dare not take a stance on the truth. Fair and balanced . sure.

      they go to rw think tank types and same type congressperson when presenting a story. Yagggh.

      The coverage I find most helpful is in depth overseas or other national information whether cultural, natural or political. No other news outlet seems to pay much attention outside our borders.

      Thanks again.

      Science is hell bent on consensus. Dr. Michael Crichton said “Let’s be clear: The work of science has nothing to do with consensus... which is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right,”
