Newsone

“Every journalist who is not too stupid or full of himself to notice what is going on knows that what he does is morally indefensible.”

–Janet Malcolm

“There is no such thing as Objective Journalism. The phrase itself is a pompous contradiction in terms.”

–Hunter S. Thompson

The fact is, if you’re reading on this site, you probably aren’t a kid. At least not intellectually.

You should know by now and quite well that “news” reporting is all a hustle. You should have figured that out years ago.

The first time you heard the word “slant” in relation to news, you should have realized that this implied that something was crooked.

The fact that Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly have, what can only extremely loosely be termed “news” shows and that even Rush Limbaugh dabbles in “news” should demonstrate that people either know in advance what kind of “news” they want, or they know how they want the news they’ll get reported to them.

THANK GOD you guys come to NewsOne because I love it. I love it when anyone responds to anything I’ve written even if it’s only to say, “Byers, you’re an idiot” cause the truth is, I agree with that as much and as often as I do with any compliments that I may receive.

And you know what else?

Casey loves it and Reverend Al loves it and Stephanie loves it and Dr. Boyce loves it and Kevin loves it and Elon loves it and Charisse loves it.

This doesn’t mean, of course, that we plan on ever telling you the truth. Maybe you can or maybe you can’t handle the truth.

Maybe we don’t even know the truth.

But we’re here because some “slant” has to be working against some of the other ones that are already in place, if only to attempt to restore some sort of balance to the world of “news”.

And if Anais Nin was right when she said, “We don’t see things they way they are, we see them the way we are,” then maybe, for my sake at least, it’s better not even to try to be objective.
