I love it when my liberal leaning (for now) kid is forced to admit that her UMBC professors are so one sided its absurd. That alone tells me she's not just accepting the relentless liberal bias, and little cracks are forming in her perceptions.
I have no doubt she will ultimately reject liberalism as the destructive ideal it really is, but hey, if you're going to think like a liberal, it's best to get it out of your system while you're young, and enjoying the ride provided by others.
http://www.ceasespin.org/ceasespin_b...rm_public.htmlOn August 18, 2000, a six-person jury was unanimous in its conclusion that Akre was indeed fired for threatening to report the station's pressure to broadcast what jurors decided was "a false, distorted, or slanted" story about the widespread use of growth hormone in dairy cows.
The court did not dispute the heart of Akre's claim, that Fox pressured her to broadcast a false story to protect the broadcaster from having to defend the truth in court, as well as suffer the ire of irate advertisers. . .
The attorneys for Fox, owned by media baron Rupert Murdoch, argued the First Amendment gives broadcasters the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on the public airwaves. . .
Angry Nerds: Fox Banned at second rate college
second rate is being kind .....
460 average math SAT and 475 average reading? ......
25/75% of 1220 / 1540 out of 2400 .......
haven't seen many lower than this .....
sounds like open minded, edjumacated folks .....
They're trying to up their game by banning FOX.
If their goal is to filter out media distortion, they should ban all of it. That's the only way they will be able to achieve their goal. Every media outlet has their agenda. Some are subtle, some not so much. But they all engage in media distortion in one way or the other.
The real problem many have not addressed is that the many media news operations are owned by a shortlist of a few large megamedia corporations. And they continue to gobble up the little guys until there will be no independent voices.

There's also substantially less reporting and investigation. The cable news networks (the worst train wreck in the business) play a little footage then give opinions about something small for hours. And hours.
This is why I am forced to watch Al Jazeera. They have reporters out doing reports. Even if it's anti-Western it's still better news than the big three US cable networks.
The pendulum swings.
Enjoy Obama while you have him the next 3 and a half years. After that you won't see anyone as liberal as he is in the WH.
