When I watch the news I flick from channel to channel. At the moment, if you asked me which channel comes closest to an ideal of good quality and unbiased journalism, I would probably say none, but the best is France24. It is always fascinating to compare and contrast all the different viewpoints and techniques of news management.
I normally hover very briefly on Fox. But just now Fox were running an item on a New York bar that has banned weapons – which the Fox commentators thought outrageous. First they opined gleefully that the bar would get shot up in consequence. Then one of them said “Most mass shootings actually occur in weapons free zones like schools.” They all happily concurred that schools would be safer if firearms were allowed in.
