A Lesson In Objective Reporting

In the following video clip, Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC displays for all Americans the reason why the Obama administration is raising such concerns about Fox News Channel and their apparent inability to report in an objective manner.

As she interviews Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, notice the clear neutrality with which Ms. Mitchell presents the interview, as she does not at all attempt to persuade her audience to hold a belief in any direction.

Fox News Channel would be well served to take notice of Ms. Mitchell's professionalism and journalistic ethics.

"I Would!"
way to go Hatch.

are these people that stupid?
or is it that they think we're that naive?

probably both.

Soloman said...

I agree, Pedaling, that was a great smack-back by Hatch.

"These people" - the "journalists like Ms. Mitchell, definitely think we're stupid.

Now is she smart? Interesting question. My impression of her says no way, but she has had a "respectable" career and until recently (Obama) was not anywhere near as biased as she is now.

She is my proof positive that all NBC news people have marching orders.

Her husband is the very Conservative Alan Greenspan too.. of course that means nothing, look at James Carville and Mary Matlin.

In the words of Orrin Hatch, "MSNBC
is a scurrilous organization, they're about as left-wing as you can find in this country, and they're up to one thing and that is to smear good people."

You clearly need reprogramming. Please locate the reprogramming station in your area and set an appointment within the next 3 days, or you will be "net neutralized."

compliment to you, you are just as rude as the putz

Soloman said...

Putz, if you're calling me a lesbian with hairy armpits, I'm honored.

Seriously - Candle is very creative and has a great blog, and I thank you for the compliment.

Good for Sen. Hatch! And who really cares about Andrea Mitchell's opinion?

Soloman said...

Tammy, I agree wholeheartedly. I really like Hatch for the most part, and sometimes wish he'd speak his mind a little more.

I think this attack on Fox is going to bring some common sense to the discussion from some voices who have been quiet for some time, and maybe we'll find a real leader in the process. I don't think Hatch is the next president, but we may know soon who can really challenge Obama, and it will all be Obama's fault we found that person.
