Yesterday, on the radio I heard that Madonna only spends about 30 minutes a day with her children (the rest of the time they're with nannies)--so people think she should be denied her latest attempt to adopt a child.

You can rely on some newspapers, radio shows and TV shows more than others for unbiased information.

It, like the Enquirer, is a tabloid.

Take Fox News, for instance--you can always count on them for incredibly even-handed reliable reporting that's not the least bit biased by political reporting.

Hey I've participated in wiki wars myself so I know that wiki is basically consensus or whoever posted most recently. But I learned something unsettling when I was much younger about traditional news media (leaving aside Nat. Enquirer, which knows it is entertainment rather than news). Back in the day, I was part of something which became a news story (details not included to preserve anonymity). The news story got the general gist right, but many details were flat out wrong. And I'd talked to the reporter myself. Something just got lost in translation. It wasn't spin or bias. It was simply that some things ...just...weren't...right. But I would never have known if I wasn't part of it, because the broader story was true. Years later, the same thing happened to dh. Coincidence? No. I think that what actually happens is that ALL news stories get something wrong. And that's disregarding the stories that aren't particularly trying to be correct, like the ones in Nat'l Enquirer.

Actually it's well-known that Fox News tends to have quite a politically conservative spin. In fact it wouldn't surprise me at all that Bush would hire Snow for that very reason.

But that's the point, it wasn't a good discussion or story, it was simply gossip.
