Default See BS = CBS

Columbia Broadcasting System.

Bet you can Google up their latest fiasco. Add "Dan Rather" and/or "forged documents" to get an idea..........

Enjoy.

For world news, I always go for the BBC World Service. Reporters who know their countries, (mostly locals), and report with as little bias as can be expected from human beings. No cult of personality, just people who seem to still have respect for the process of proper journalism.

Saw a broadcast of local news from the New York/New Jersey area, channel 9 or 11, I forget which .

There were three people. In the center was a gray-haired sixtyish, distinguished fellow.

On either side were two very attractive women in their twenties. The one on the right was good looking, but looked like she might be fairly intellectual in her approach. The one on the left was the Party Girl. She read the news straight enough, but they advertised her upcoming segment-some lighthearted trifle. When the segment came up several minutes later, she ran over to the set where it was set up, and of course smiled and laughed her way through it.

She was very good at getting you to like her, I must admit.

But this is news?

It was obvious this was meant to be an entertainment show with just enough reporting to qualify as a news show.

And the New York/New Jersey area is supposed to be a sophisticated market. Egad.

Channel 9 and 11 are not the big networks, so they need to do something different to attract viewers. The "serious" news is on channel 2, 4, and 7.

Even in the Netherlands, where the real news shows seem to go out of their way to find dour, ugly presenters, there are other channels which focus mainly on cleavage and car chases.
