I'm pretty sure journalism is dead and fox has killed it
But I wanted to share my response to our local fox news' program's coverage of Cliven Bundy:
MeTo firstname.lastname@example.orgToday at 12:52 PMI guess I should preface by saying I don't have cable and I haven't watched TV news in general since the Bush Administration because it makes my blood pressure go up. I recently acquired a new tv with an antenna for the purposes of watching storm coverage this spring and I happened upon your coverage of Cliven Bundy. I was surprised at how positive it was.
You all were reporting on this guy like he was being abused and not suffering the natural consequences of ignoring a debt to the federal government (which he does not recognize) for 20 years. Armed 'militia'? They're going to put the women out front? How can you put a positive spin on this level of crazy and still have the will to dress yourselves in the morning without shame? This is not journalism. I find it hard to believe that people watch this and take it seriously and I feel sorry for the people who do.
I am eagerly awaiting your reply, though, I don't expect to get one.
