I just watched this report from Moblogic.tv's Lindsay Campbell.
Her report: Lindsay Arrested: Yellow Journalism? | MobLogic.tv: Daily News and Politics Web Show with Lindsay Campbell
"If I experience something and tell my friends about it, I tell them everything that happened, and how I felt about it. Why then as a journalist am I expected to give you the facts without sharing what I think about them?I'm sharing it here because I admire the fact that she is sharing her views with us. I've met Lindsay and her team and understand what they are trying to do. It's refreshing and I enjoy hearing news that is presented with a point of view.
At Moblogic.tv, I'm Lindsay's friend and she's telling me what happened and sharing her feelings.
Ironicly, after watching Lou Dobbs on CNN last night, I was upset that he was reporting the news and doing the same thing as Lindsay. He was sharing his views on the stories that he was reporting. I didn't expect to see that on CNN.
I know what I'm gettting at Moblogic.tv, but CNN?
Here's what I wrote on twitter last night about Lou Dobbs:
"Lou Dobbs on CNN is reporting the news and expressing his biased opinion. It's blatant. He also has gaussian blur on his face."Was I upset because I don't agree with Lou Dobbs?
I don't agree with Linday all the time, but with her I know I'm getting a point of view.
We need to be critical consumers of the media that enters our homes.
Does CNN need to add a bug at the bottom of the screen to inform viewers that we are getting opinion with the news?
What is going on here?
