GinaB said in another post: [/SIZE] Gina, I have come to believe that because profits are what drives our media that we do not get fair and balanced reporting ... and many topics are ignored as the media does not want to make their advertisers and stock holders angry. Also, political talk/news programs will not ask tough questions. If they did so politicians would simply refuse to appear on their programs. In the US the media is driven by profits ... except for PBS. The News Hour gives lots more time to topics and includes guests on both sides of an issue. BBC is good and not driven by the desire for profit.
