A lot of news outlets put a slant on news stories, but what I think is worse is that a lot of important stories don't get aired at all.
That's institutional bias at work! I spent a very brief period (two weeks!) working for a local BBC radio station and I saw it happen - I presented stories aplenty for us to cover but there's a chain of command and 'no' means 'no.' My dreams of newsnight and pre-formed (biased as a result of films and media?) fantasy view of being a hard hitting journalist were quickly squashed.

The more media of all sorts, the better. Media lies can be countered by other media.

Every mainstream news outlet runs irrelevant crap all day and night.
They smear, fear monger and outright lie.

Well luckily they can lie to us all they want, here at ATS we can all discuss the truth to our hearts content.
That's all well and good except that I think people either fail to realize or forget that the majority of content posted here is from the dreaded MSM. That's where most of the info is coming from. Sure we slant it differently, but I am growing weary of people acting as if ATS is some perfectly unbiased and balanced place (not intended at you).
