On our trip to the BBC, I remember our tour guide saying that BBC had no commercial sponsors, and therefore they could be completely impartial. They would never have to skew a story just because an advertiser did not agree with the depiction of the story.
Earlier in the summer, I remember debating with some of my older coworkers about the news. One claimed how he loved the O'Reilly factor, and I scoffed. The conversation eventually boiled down to expressing my frustration with the news. Every time I turn on the TV, the coverage is so extremely opinionated. I asked why I couldn't just find a source with the facts? I would care more about the War in Iraq if I actually knew how many troops are sent, how many were killed that day, and the actual contributions they make. That way I could draw my own conclusions, instead of having the anchors make them for me. My co-workers responded with "yeah, good luck with that".
So why is American news so skewed? Do taking political sides invoke more interest in news stories? Or is it simply because we work with the similar opinionated? What about those who want to know what's going on in the world without flashing our political stance on it? I think I'll switch to BBC. Not only will I learn more about worldwide news that the USA tends to overlook, but I can bi-pass the American political extremes.
