It seems lately the media is more speculation than fact and is counterproductive to fragile social situations. Opinion and unchecked facts appear to ignite unrest or give the problems an audience over those trying to resolve the issue. I miss the news being the news rather than flavored with skew.

I would like to think that Anchorman 2 had a pretty good run down on it. They found out they got better ratings with exciting fluff pieces than facts and so they run with it. It is not news anymore, it is purely "educational" entertainment.

The best alternative I can find is NPR. I'll admit, it is entertaining, and I cannot completely rule out biases on the part of its affiliates and networks, or its reporters. But it seems to be relevant information, local and international, and I'm certainly more informed for it; unlike watching FOX news.

this really is a no brainer especially with that LTC getting the ax for calling the president a pussy. While he might have thought a second before he spoke, he responded to the question asked him in his own truthful way. In his opinion, he was telling the truth...He felt when he saw the response that Obama gave, the questioner asked him 'what went through your mind?' and the LTC said, 'obama you are a pussy!' so, while it's not very newsworthy, it did make it entertaining...people are still talking about it.
