I watch the BBC news on BBC America from time to time. It seems objective but if it's a govt directive that's sad. I never said we should force news to be objective I said they should be, just like it's not illegal to cheat on your wife but you should have enough integrity to keep your vow. Should the govt have to force it? If news was all objective then you'd only watch the stations with the prettiest or most handsome news readers I guess. lf I want opinion I know where to go but if I want news, there is no place that I think is objective so I have to scour all the garbage to ultimately make up my own mind. I have to do that anyway but an objective news source you could trust would be nice.Who says? We have the BBC, regulated by the government in a way that you would never accept, with a directive to be balanced and objective. Do you accept the BBC as an objective source of world news? How would you force news networks to do what they "should" do and be objective, particularly if that means losing viewers and thus advertising revenue?
