Wednesday, on Brit Hume’s news hour on FOX, he reported that both these organizations are funded by George Soros.

Good. I am glad to hear that. I highly respect Brit Hume. On the other hand, I find it outrageous that Foxnew.com ran the story on Tuesday without bothering to mention that the supposedly impartial nonprofit organizations are funded by George Soros. So, we have either extremely shoddy, incompetent journalism or an intention to obfuscate the facts. See: http://www.foxnews.com/printer_friendly_story/0,3566,324753,00.html

I just noticed that the original story is the same article posted on Fox news. So, never mind following the link in my last message!

FOX News has been a low budget, high profit business. They use AP, Reuters and other “news” services in place of a large staff. Hopefully this will improve over time. CNN, in my opinion, is a much more qualitative outfit with a worldwide staff. Unfortunately, CNN insists on shaping news to fit a liberal, partisan agenda.

Regardless of how low budget Fox’s operations may be, how much does it cost to spend a few seconds checking out a story before reporting it as fact? Isn’t that, after all, their job? I am constantly amazed at the shoddy state of journalism these days. Journalists are supposedly “professionals” in their field. Yet, time after time they violate rules that are taught in a Journalism 101 class.

Hundreds of times is far less than all the time. The AP can never be believed. They never tell the truth.

I don’t know if those rules are taught in “broadcast journalism” which has always, to me, been an oxymoron. The emphasis is on appearance, taste in dress, voice, “personality,” and the ability to read a script in front of a camera.

George Soros is stirring again.

To me, the way I look at it, a socialist named George Soros spent vast fortune, with help for the left wing crowd to over throw the duly elected president of this country and failed miserably.

I think he needs to go back where he comes from and take his buddies with him.
