Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Was thinking more of the Cleveland Plain Dealer
which I read daily before I moved and various on line news mags. What I saw there was a parroting of what ever news release was handed to them and a complete lack of critical analysis. It was very rare that anybody critisized Bush off the OpEd pages. Reporting has been either fawning or "The president said blah blah blah". Having reporters ask questions has, until recently, been a lost art. The state of the free press is worth an entire tirade in itself. Which I'm not up for at this time...

I don't think I've ever heard Rush and I don't watch Fox news. Since we stopped getting movie channels, my TV time is down to a few hours a month. I've never really considered TV news jounalism. That just me.
New Re: Was thinking more of the Cleveland Plain Dealer
Ouch. As a veteran of reading that paper, I'd have to agree. But I don't know if their staff is capable of critical analysis either. I hated that paper.

Philly Inq, NYT. LA Times, etc..all qualify...and you can get them online too :-)
