    When will the MSM finally figure out the difference between "TRUTH" and "OPINION"?  They continue to operate as if their only job is to tell you what each side is saying on an issue in their stupid quest for what they consider to be "fair and impartial" reporting.

    NO!  That's not your only job.  Good journalists are supposed to also research what each side is saying, find out the TRUTH (if they can discern it) and report it to the American public.

    The Sequester is not a "both sides are equally at fault" situation.  The TRUTH is the Dems. have offered a way to avoid it and the Republicans have refused to accept it or even debate it.

    Will Somebody Please, Please Report the TRUTH!

      with you on this. I am a 1973 J-school graduate of Drake Univ. We were taught that the editor's job was to determine the "news weight" given to each story and treat it accordingly. There are almost no good journalists outside of NPR and BBC these days. It's killing us. And nobody seems to care.
