    Which of these is worse, or are they about the same?



    Fox producer Heidi Noonan whips up the crowd off camera while a live feed to Beck's show is underway.

    They are both hard up for a story.

    Glenn Beck is not a reporter. Reports on his show are on a par with the Daily Show, not serious news. CNN is supposed to be serious news. This reporter is supposed to seriously be "reporting" on a story.

    When purportedly serious news becomes skewed and slanted, then uninformed people become misinformed. This is not the object of reporting.

    On the other side, when you tune in to Glenn Beck, you know you are going to get right-wing red meat. It is what it is. I don't think anyone is too confused by his brand of info-tainment. Just like when you tune into the Daily Show, Colbert, Letterman you know you are going to get left-wing red meat. No big surprise if they goose the subject matter.

    Fox Employee "Caught"?? This is SOP when cheering can be part of the show, maybe I missed something because the Fox clip had bad audio.

    Both CNN reporters were drooling disdain for the people they were talking to and about.

    Though I voted "equally culpable of political bias", clearly CNN was the more hateful and bias of the two clips.

    *I must spread some reputation around before giving it to you again*


    Although Beck has become a lot more anti-both-parties of late.
