Did you 'catch' that!?

In watching Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism I've discovered that I need to be discerning and critical in the media content that I listen to and watch. 

Have you ever wondered what is happening on the other side of your television when you watch the news? 
When the news comes on the television there are the breaking news stories that are the must sees. Not all the facts are always available or the story may not be completely finished. In actuality the news is nothing more than a moneymaking business, it's part of the entertainment industry. New media is built to bring in revenues and they wont make any money if their news stories aren't as exciting as the next channel over. As seen in the video above stories were made to entertain and electrify rather than real news.  A set of money making hounds have set out with the intention to create revenue with no real intent to inform. There are standards for each news centre and with Fox as shown in the video is a very biased media centre. 
It is important to tell the truth especially when they claim their information to be true and factual. However, as Fox has so eloquently demonstrated they push for entertainment and excitement over hard-hitting facts.
If you want to discover the truth there are several website devoted to just bringing forth the truth rather than trying to entertain. Most people don't know about these web site because they don't take the time to be critical of what information they are retaining. Although, most news stations do make the presentation of news information interesting, I feel it is much more important to have the facts. is a website devoted to being non-bias and factual. If there is ever a doubt in your mind I encourage you to go onto and uncover the truth. Avoid the wedge issues and get the facts!
