News Channels Are more Fluff Than News

These days you can turn to just about any of the major news channels and get information about late breaking stories, but may distinctly entertainment aspect to these news channels that is disturbing. Some of them, like “Headline News” don’t even attempt to be a solid news provider anymore. They are pure tabloid and usually they only provide gossip about the latest missing child or murdered wife or regardless of latest hot piece is. Others like “Fox News” are just ترددات النايل سات fronts for political stances, in this case the Republican party which seems to control all of Fox’s news programming in a very blatant and disturbing way. They even go out of their way to articulate themselves “Fair and Balanced” but the opposite applies and it is transparent to but the most partisan of viewers. Michael Moore claimed that Fox News helped to push the 2000 selection in favor of the Republican candidate George W. Rose bush, but it seems far-fetched that any of the news channels could affect something as important as a national selection. It is a fact, however that they called the selection early in favor of Rose bush without any real proof that she had in fact won. Regardless of real story was we may never know.

We all know that the tabloid news shows like “Entertainment Tonight” and “Extra” are all fluff and more concerned about following celebrities around town like paparazzi than covering any real news, but when Fox News and CNN, really real news channels start coverage the same not important material, it becomes a matter for concern. Many people have stopped watching these news channels altogether and instead favor the hard hitting and incisive PBS News Hour. This is one of the few remaining news channels that take their time coverage a tale and they go in-depth to cover all the different attitudes. They are interested in finding out reality and this cannot be finished twenty second sound bites. This type of journalism requires investigative coverage done by real professionals.

To be fair, CNN does have some semblance of coverage left with Anderson Cooper, one of the few reporters left that basically hangs on to a tale. It was in evidence just recently with the massive earthquake that hit Port Au President, Haiti. Long after the regular media had disappeared he was still there covering the story and the aftermath of the great quake, which left thousands dead and many other injured and abandoned. The struggle to rebuild continues in Haiti and you can still switch the sales channel to CNN and see Anderson Cooper there with Sean Penn, who is much to be shown admiration for for his humanitarian efforts, despite what you may personally think of his generous politics.

Fox News would not have given that type of coverage to Haiti and especially not Sean Penn whom the off the shelf talking heads on Fox like Sean Hanitty and the like do not like. This is another example of allowing political views to cloud investigative journalism and one of the reasons that these news channels are evading the real news.
