CBS would rather go out of the news business than simply be fair

This report on Drudge is the greatest testament to the reality that people do not always do what is in their own best interest.

CBS, long known as being the most relentlessly liberal of the networks, will not report news in a balanced fashion that could possibly win them viewers. Oh no. Even the success of Fox is not enough to convince CBS that balance and fairness could actually attract viewers. They would prefer to go out of the news business entirely.

But the harsh reality is that liberal media is divided into dozens of parts: CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, CNBC and hundreds of affiliates nationwide. The major news networks have audience from habit. Just as the Democrat Party has a host of aging white members too stupid or addled to see that its policies are actually arrayed AGAINST their interests, so the major networks have an aging audience that tunes in because it always has.

Today, that's just not enough. And telling the whole truth, why, that's just too much.

Walker, your assessment is right on target! I personally know some of those aging people who watch the major news network out of habit. Neither do they realize what the Democratic party has become... that it has changed from when their parents were Democrats. It's all extremely frustrating!
