Many of us have grown weary of the partisan hyperbole and tone of television news reporting. At the risk of dating myself, I can remember a time when CBS Evening News anchor Walter Cronkite was declared the most trusted person in America.
Priebus can cut off contact with liberal media outlets to protest claims that he feels are unjust; however, if he is truly dedicated to reestablishing the Republican Party, he could start by looking in the mirror first because as these examples show there is nothing the liberal media can say that will make Republicans look worse than their own actions do.
Has Christie crossed a line that's presidentially disqualifying and O'Reilly misused a sporting event to peddle crackpot conspiracies? And if conservatives like choice for markets and schools, why not for balancing health care, work and family?
I wondered what the tenuous connection was between Britney Spears the breathing human and the faded sticker bearing her image thousands of miles away.
If MSNBC cared about not presenting liberals as sniveling cowards, they would never go through these debasing apologies one after another. But they don't care about that because the guy who runs the network doesn't give a damn about how progressives look, because he isn't one of them.

Al-Jazeera's toned-down coverage is surprising and ironic in light of the current media landscape. Indeed, al-Jazeera America is launching at precisely the moment when cable news is cratering in the public imagination.
Pardon me for being blunt, but is this controversy actually happening? Am I missing something? And most importantly, why isn't anyone questioning the fact that this is actually a controversy?
