What happened to the days of unbiased news reporting?

Look at what NBC said "Saddam Hussein went to the gallows before sunrise Saturday, executed by vengeful countrymen after a quarter-century of remorseless brutality that killed countless thousands and led Iraq into disastrous wars against the United States and Iran" This is just a small sample of how news is twisted to make us think what they want us to think. Saddam was a bad man and deserved to die, but do you see how it adds "Saddam... led to the war with the US" Right, Saddam mades us do it. Professional news reporting went out the window when they let people like Nancy Grace start reporting. The comments she makes are almost enough to make me start tearing out what hair i have left.

    Very good point!

    It doesn't mention how the US were allied with Saddam for a long time and even after he committed the raid on Dujail...the crime he was convicted of.

    Also even after the video has been shown...they are still saying how Afraid and broken he looks....he seemed calm and composed to me.

    Lets not even get started on Nancy Grace...

    That is the power of "Marketing", something which US is better at doing than anyone else in this world. Apologies, I digress.

    In any case, I am of the opinion that Saddam did not deserve to die based on historical facts. There are others a lot worse than him and yet they are still enjoying conspiratorial immunities.

    Congratulate yourself..You've come to realize the truth. Now if we can get about 50 million more people to stop sucking at the nipple of the liberal media and wake up! Liberal bias is subtle at times, and painfully obvious as well. Listen carefully how flowery superlatives are always used when speaking about one of them. I guarantee Barak Obama or Hillary will not need toilet paper for the next 2 years, as network news talking heads will be standing in line to gleefully take on that task. CNN will continue to run puff pieces on John Edwards while singing praise that the Republican Juggernaut is coming to an end. Wake up America! Stop acting on how you "feel" and use what is left of your brain to THINK!

    They're out for sensationalism. Straight news isn't exciting enough to sell papers. That's why people can't believe everything they read. They still do because it's the only information source they get.
