What liberal media....my response...

For some reason, this article did not catch my interest...

The other article i found easy to read, and i wanted to keep reading because it was very interesting, this one however, i thought was boring. I didn't really see much opinion in here, perhaps that would have made it more interesting to read. Goldberg had a lot of opinion in his, but he also had a good mix of examples as well. Perhaps if Eric Alterman had voiced his opinion more..this article could be helped. I don't really know what to say about it, just that i didn't like it, because it wasn't interesting to me....it didn't catch my attention and make me want to keep reading.

Bias.....how media distort the news......my response....

I have never really taken an interest in politics.....

quite frankly, i don't understand them. I had never really thought about what views liberals or conservatives had, or really exactly what it was that differentiates the two groups. I didn't care and didn't want to know...and i still don't. I am not registered to vote, and even if i was i would vote for who had the views that i thought were most beneficial to the US. I do have my own views about things, but i wouldn't really label myself, considering i don't even know what views you have to have to be considered one thing or another. I did like this article though, becuase Bernard Goldberg was against things from both sides not just one, and thats how i am. He is against affirmative action, yet for it at the same time. He believes what i believe, that its ok in instances where its not all about race. I understand how schools want more minorities, but to pick just the minorities..a students race or nationality should not be taken into consideration at all. It should be about how well the student has done academically. I think Mr. Goldberg was very open and two sided throughout his entire article except for the last line, where he said, "They honestly believe what they are saying, and thats the problem." (Bernard Goldberg) I think right there that he is being bias, because according to him, everyone has their own opinions and its ok and he is fighting for those with opposing views to get noticed, yet right there, he is saying they are wrong. I think its slightly hypocritical.
