I couldn't believe this! It's a bit lengthy, but that's the point.

    Talking heads reading without bothering to understand the content.I'd like to meet the person who writes the headlines that are chirped out by the rote induced parrots. How about hooking them up to a lie detector that gives them a shock rvery time they lie or not make sense.

    For years I wondered, but for most of the 20th century the US networks appeared to be in competition. Every big story had multiple camera angles, and at least a hint of difference in commentary. CNN when it began even increased the ante. But then the scum at Time Warner offered Ted Turner several billion and under Hanoi Jane's influence Turner accepted. That marked the end of competition among networks. When Nixon died the funeral coverage made it obvious. One camera angle shared by all the stations and the pro-state bias in commentary was a downpour.
    Today its a complete sham.

    This stuf onlt make the seeker of truth want to take a shower. Teaching the great multitudes of minds full of mush about socialism is like teaching them what the sun is by explaining quantum physics to them. They've indoctrinated from kindergarten to adulthood.

    They could all just say "ditto, that" and save us all some time--sponsors would complain though.

    I wrote Hillsdale College and suggested it was time for a new on-line course on "The Role of the Media in a Free Society"--maybe taught by John Miller and some "ethical" reporters. Have yet to get a response, though.

    It's one company. The Sinclair Broadcast Group had all of their affiliates read a common promo.

      Your right! As reported by a number of news outlets, it looks like the company “forced” their employees to read a prepared script for a promo. Kind of like the company I work for forces me to program computer code from prepared flow charts.

    Me dino thought of the everlasting "Trump's Russian collusion" skipping vinyl all points bulletin blather while I listened to that far-reaching scripted repetition.
    One would think that 90% of the news media must have some sort of centralized mandatory statement authorization clearing committee that somehow answers to the Deep State.

      It'll be interesting to see just how much longer the "Collusion" thing can go on. Will they let it go after it's found to be garbage, or will they continue it forever? When will Hillary finally admit that she lost the election? At least Anderson Cooper has changed the subject a little, trying to figure out just what it is about woman that most other men are attracted to.

        Me dino fully expects the liars to continue to lie. They already have an audience who are only open to any garbage dumped on the despised one who "with Russian collusion stole the election" their beloved entitled queen, who as a candidate said, "I dream of open borders." Some of those duped stand in line to get their autographed copy of "What Happened," all having warm smiles to greet The Evil Hag they o so love.

          I sometimes dream that her followers had open houses. Everyone would be welcome to step inside.
          The dream ends in a bloody mess.

            Won't happen. Her followers think a taxpayers should fund a bureaucratic housing program for all the moochers who would stream across their dream of open borders.
            It would a bloody mess, though. Me dino would steer clear of such housing projects and the cartels that will torment people of their own ethnicity.

    Is anyone shocked that some TV news is fluff?

      No, if only they would admit that it's entertainment and biased propaganda. To my knowledge, in the US only Rush Limbaugh has admitted that he's an entertainer.
      News anchors are empty headed dolts with arguably attractive faces who read biased scripts and fill people with disinformation.
      At least in the UK they call them "news readers." (Or they once did;^)
      I think the point of this video is that all the different networks are frequently fed the same scripts and the "anchors" are just reading what they are told to read regardless of how moronic the content.
