    Media news should be exempt from the bottom line. An informed democracy is a viable one and the fourth power, except when it folds to tyranny as it’s the case now, should be independent and free of political agendas a la Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite. It’s said that the olden times were always better and relating to the media, this adage was never more true than during these the worst of times. We went from a nation that cared for law and order to another that care not. We went from fair and balanced to any thing goes. In this polarized society as never before, the news, unbiased news are a must if we are to survive. In a true democracy, slogans, secret agendas should be a no no. This country has advanced so much in almost all fields, it’s a shame that freedom of the press can’t be counted within those.

    As long as networks continue to push their political agendas via a biased news hour, you can be sure more and more viewers will switch off. Ms. Couric showed her bias during the last presidential debate. If the networks wish for viewers to return, just report the news. Perhaps Les Moonves could look up the term, “fourth estate’ and understand its implications and responsibilities.

    YES !!! Turned off CBS soon after “Barbie, the plastic wanna-be star” took her biased news helm… What a drag on all-American hero Cronkite’s beloved National News. Anderson is the shot in the (media) arm all earnest Americans yearn for… Sooner the better…
