The Difference Between Reporting Good News And Reporting Bad News
News is a primary source of information for most people. It is the first thing that comes into their minds when they hear about anything. All news is an objective account of what happened. In a way, all news is subjective.
American news is considered “hard news.” American news is considered “hard” because the purpose of the press is to seek out and publish the news with a partisan or particular point of view. Hard news is not the same as biased news. When the media is covering both sides of an issue, the public sees a mixture of facts. The public is presented with both good news and bad news, and this balances the news appropriately.
Many people criticize the press for what they consider to be their liberal bias in their reporting of all aspects of daily life in America. However, most news outlets strive to remain unbiased. Some journalists are more liberal than others while some are far right wing and others lean left on any given issue.
For instance, a prominent U.S. conservative political commentator often comments on the media, stating that the media is largely liberal and focuses on opinion and the promotion of ideas rather than reporting. On the other hand, numerous reporters have reported that they are very much left leaning. This would mean that they focus on the facts while the news anchors tend to be opinionated. With regard to recent events, both journalists correctly stated that recent events have shown a wide range of disparity between political party platforms and the actual policies of each party. For example, President Bush said that he believes in “a bigger America, with better leadership.” However, many media reports have showed that this was a carefully crafted propaganda line.
A good American journalist, such as Dan Rather, has been criticized by the Bush Administration for saying that President Bush had passed the time of his life with “a little advice”. However, most news reports have portrayed Bush as looking more relaxed and happy after being given this piece of advice by a well-known American conservative talk show host. Another example of this is the way in which some news reporters have presented the death of Princess Diana. Some news agencies, such as CNN, have presented the death of Princess Diana as the biggest news story of the year, while others have reported that she had passed away quietly at her home.
It is important for Americans to remember that much of what they read and hear from the news is not necessarily true. The most obvious example of this is political propaganda that is often reported by news agencies. However, the vast majority of news can provide an objective look at different situations. This is especially true with news regarding the environment and the problems that are being faced on a daily basis. The world is a place where perceptions can easily be changed by a simple change of the words that are being said and by the way in which the news is presented.
