Most everyone heard the news a week or so ago when Ann Culter was "banned for life" from NBC. Yes, she gets a lot of people really riled up, but let's step back for one second...I'm not saying that she isn't crazy, extreme, and at times hard to listen to, but I'm also not saying that she is full of sh*t, either. She has some very important points...and being extreme has earned her the celebrity status she now enjoys.
What bothers me the most is the fact that an NBC insider was quoted as saying, "We are just not interested in anyone so highly critical of President-elect Obama, right now," explaining that "it's such a downer. It's just not the time, and it's not what our audience wants, either." So...news is subjective to what people want to hear, is that what this NBC insider is suggesting? Apparently so.
You are probably thinking...wait, I thought that this was NBC news that we were talking about? And yes, you are right. "News", as I have learned, is a matter of opinion. Not a matter of fact. And, I challenge anyone who believes that unbiased media exists. It is nothing more than an oxymoron.
