step into the void- bloggers, independent investigative journalists-- and comedy central 'news anchors' jon stewart and stephen colbert. yep. folks get their news from the daily show and colbert report- and they could do worse. i mean there is cnn and faux noise. and apparently, these folks are more knowledgeable than ones who watch o'reilly or dobbs. huh.
but leave it to the foreign press (with their own set of corporate issues) to cut to the bone of the matter:
"The fake news anchor may be the antidote to fake news, which has a habit of showing up in American newspapers. After all, the US government had an initiative in 2005 to plant "positive news" in Iraqi newspapers to sway public opinion about the war. The Bush administration has worked closely with big business to keep it flowing.
According to Professor Robert Love, of Columbia Journalism School: "They have used fringe scientists and fake experts to muddy scientific debates on global warming, stem-cell research, evolution, and other matters."ahhhh..... truth in print at last.
