Not so long ago there was a nightly routine that went on in most American households. After returning from work, and just before dinner, the news would come on all the major television stations. Only having a few short channels to choose from, you either got the news from ABC, NBC or CBS. The major news outlets all had the same major story-lineups, with a slight variation in the feature stories, depending on the locale. Nowadays, almost everyone has cable or satellite television and receives numerous choices of where to get their news.
No matter which side of the political spectrum you fall, many Americans are growing distrustful of the media as a whole. If you are a conservative, you believe that a liberal ideology drives the mainstream media. If you are a liberal, you believe that news outlets such as Fox sensationalize the news to slant right. That leaves everyone wondering if there such a thing as an unbiased media anymore? What happened to the days when both sides were equally reported, there was no bias, and everyone got the same recount of events?
