I think if you want to get the "full picture" or "full bias" effect you have to flip between all the news stations during an event like this, and
it's actually fun to watch the individual slant, if you will, of all of them
I liken it to listening to the now defunct "Air America" which I did, to get their slant on things...as I listen to other slants, the conservatives
and their talk shows...etc.
I remember hearing Rush Limbaugh, who literally makes me gag, I can't stand that guy, but he was reporting on Air America going belly up at least 6
or 9 months before it did...and I remember mentioning that to my sis-in-law who's very liberal and only watches and listens to media with a very
liberal slant telling me "Oh PUHLEASE did you get that on Fox news? It's TOTALLY not true Air America is THRIVING." Which I knew it wasn't
and trust me, not because Rush said so, I dug around and found that they couldn't get advertisers to save their lives...that they had to rely on
individual private donations to even stay afloat as long as they did.
So the moral of the story is...the story may be wrapped in the trappings of either factions propaganda, but in both sides there may be occasional
nuggets of truth that you have to ferret out
