    FtN and this week with what's his name are  both prime examples of faux news programs. To claim they offer balanced opinion or debate is simply lying. I can't stand to watch this crap.

    I said then, and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it; and while there is a criminal element, I am of it; and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free. - Eugene Debs

      Thanks for reminding us all.

      the point here. Bob Schieffer is biased and pro Israel,  because he aired an interview of the head of Hamas  with Charlie Rose (not a biased reporter) and the Hamas guy couldn't defend his position and looked bad from  his place in exile while the people he claim to represent are suffering. That is  Mr. Schieffer's fault? Perhaps  the Hamas leader didn't come across well because he is a terrorist  who has  avowed to destroy Israel no matter what the  cost. I didn't see the interview, but it is telling that even in trying  to show the bias  of FTN  for Israel,  the diarest can't get around the weak position and arguments  of Hamas on this matter.

        when you claim Charlie Rose is no biased reporter. You simply do not understand or wish to understand how subtle propaganda and bias works, of which Charlie is an expert. There's a big difference between the mallet and the sting, but the latter can carry poison.

        •  So I guess using that analysis (0+ / 0-)

          you  probably believe that Katie Couric is a biased reporter because she asked Sarah Palin a question and made Sarah Palin look bad.
