My previous post is about FOX "News" and their naked, transparent agenda to support the conservative--even right-wing fringe--agenda, not just choice of topics, but by brazenly lying. Compare and contrast to this show from MSNBC (often maligned for being the left-wing FOX).
Of course, this isn't the first time I've posted a clip from The Rachel Maddow Show. But it is a particularly good example of the difference between it and, say Hannity. Notice that Rachel does pick topics that skew to her demographic: Bush era torture and a coal lobbying group. But watch what she does with the stories. Along with snarky humor, she lays out her case. She isn't trying to scare you with rhetoric. You can tell, this is Rachel's (and her staff's) opinions, not some bit that's been sketched out from a Democratic Party talking points.
As a listener of progressive talk radio, a regular viewer of both Rachel and Countdown with Keith Olbermann and as a liberal blogger, I can attest that while all liberals will pick and choose what stories to focus on, it is rare to find them all on the same page, using the same terminology. And while they may be wrong sometimes--maybe a lot--they do not unify to spread a lie.
