elite government media rich in a nutshell

For now, I get a lot of my news from Yahoo. I feel like the writers are so bad, that they cannot possibly have an agenda. I trust al-Jazeera, Salon, Guardian UK, and Atlantic Monthly as more intellectual outlets more than the mainstream media in the US, but I can't really be sure of anything.

This specific rumor came to life not because of Lyon stating that the US government specifically was paying off CNN but rather it was Lyon taking issue with the credibility of CNN International (CNNi) She did a documentary on the Arab Spring and the internet's role in it. She did a piece on Bahrain's government and how corrupt it was. However it was pulled from CNNi because they take money from Bahrain's government to put up "Rosey" stories. She has said that there are other Foreign countries who also pay off CNNi. She has said however that the US is not a government that she knew of that paid off the network. And it is CNNi that is receiving this money. Not to say that the US government was not pressuring the network to not air the documentary because of the US's relationship with Bahrain as an ally in the area, however it doesn't seem that it went so far as to pay CNN off.

Anyone that even paid some what attention should already know this. IT's the reason I don't watch the new, they're always lying to you. I'm just glad someone on the inside finally said "Yeah, they do." That why the stupid people can't argue.

What's the best international news channel? I know not any of them are completely unbiased, but my personal preference would be Al Jazeera or Russia Today.

Also, from one of my previous comments, American news media nowadays is redundant, consistently surmising, highly opinionated, entirely localized and all the reporters treat it like theater. I think we are knee-deep in ******** .

Okay here's the thing, the US constitution supports the freedom of speech. That's why she can go off and say these things.
However, the US says nothing about paying off people to give false truths, or lies or withhold information. In fact, due to the freedom of speech, it encourages it allows it.
