There is a rule that "news people" can not share their political views. This is my own personal blog that happens to be linked from my station's website, but I'm sure they would frown on me stating my political views on my personal blog. But why?
Are people in the media "really" unbiased? Do we expect the public to believe that we do not lean to the right or to the left? I've always been a little perplexed by the whole topic.
Is it "old-timey" to not be transparent? I think so.
In the national media, I can easily pick out who votes to the left and who votes to the right. I know Keith Olbermann is going to vote to the left and I know Bill O'Reilly is going to vote to the right, but they still report the news to us.... They even work the election coverage!
Why is the local media not transparent, too? What are your thoughts?
Anyone want to guess who I plan to vote for in a couple of weeks? Take a guess... What about the other anchors... Who do you think Craig Rickert will vote for? What about Lauren and Diana? Sarah?
For those that don't know me... I love politics and I love watching elections, debates, etc. To some of you, it probably bores you to death. (My little secret: I'd love to be President one day!) HA!
Anywho, I'm off to sleep.
