I’m new to this forum and I’m sure that somewhere in here there are post concerning the biased news media and how bad they are. So let me first apologize if this has been addressed before.
The news media, Dead Tree Edition and Broadcast, has been going down hill ever since the ascension of the internet. I think I heard somewhere that MSNBC has 50K viewers at most on some of their shows. Newspaper prices have gone up considerably. Advertising, obituaries, announcements, etc. are also high. They all seem to be treading water and ready to go down for the last time.
The Big 3, NBC, CBS and ABC news programs ratings are getting worse all the time. I don’t think I know anyone personally who even watches them at all.
My point is. If there was some one out there, and I know that this is a stretch, who could come up with a nationally syndicated Conservative, or even truthful and unbiased, newspaper (distributed like USA Today). That would send the liberal newspapers to their grave. I know I would subscribe in a heart beat.
Fox News already has everything in place to have a competing evening news show that would put the Big 3 down for the count. (Just please, find someone else to host, not Shepard Smith.) Just report the news, be truthful, no agenda. I can’t believe Rupert Murdoch hasn’t already thought about it. Even a show about what’s Right with America up against the news shows would maybe send them a message.
I don’t know if this is possible or not, and if you think it is, what do we need to do and how do we get this going?
