    Default The Most Trusted Name In News





    http://www.cbc.ca/news/trending/cnn-...ideo-1.3132140


    ""I seem to be the only person to have spotted this and nobody seems to be raising any questions and pointing it out," said Pawle to anchor Suzanne Malveaux by phone during the segment, referring to photos she'd taken at the event."

    LOL turns out to be a flag with sex toys on it. Keep it coming CNN.

    What's even funnier is that they brought some "expert" to analyse the whole thing.

    It certainly isn't. Loss of credibility means loss of viewership.

    ABC had the most watched evening newscast last week, as NBC announced it was sending Brian Williams to MSNBC to atone for his fabrication, and named Lester Holt permanent Nightly News anchor. ABC bested NBC’s newscast for the week by its largest margin in seven years.

    Sorry Barry but sometimes lots of attention is not good for business. A lot of advertising dollars down the toilet.

    It is now less dangerous for your personal safety to wave an ISIS flag than it is a Confederate flag.

    The Left wins.

    And apparently Amazon has withdrawn sales of Confederate flag related items (read Dukes of Hazzard), but they still sell Nazi memorabilia.

    Southern Americans who fought for states' rights in the civil war are evil but the Nazis are not. PC clowns rejoice!

    How does the majority not realize how stupid that is?

    Unfortunately,the "majority" get their news from ten-second soundbites from CNN, ABC, CBS, and other liberal outlets.

    A recent study said the number one "news source" for young Americans was...wait for it...Jon Stewart. Yup, a comedian on Comedy Central who has drank from the Democratic National Committee's trough for years.

    Keep the masses dumb, and slowly move your agenda along as they focus primarily on transgender rights, The Real Housewives of Orange County, and So You Think You Can Dance.

    Marx would be proud.

    The Left wins.

    I'd trust the news from *****, Newfoundland before any American source.

    American media is money driven, above all else, IMO.

    Oh, don't be mistaken. I don't blame them in any way for making money. Media has to feed their people, and run their business just like any other.

    It's just that, in the old days, it seemed like there would be an editorial department that was independent of the money. That they would give their opinions on anything and everything, without worrying about offending the boss.

    That attitude is gone. One company used to advertise, "We get the truth!" and I'm sure they did. Problem is, they didn't TELL the truth, and always spun the news for their own maximum benefit.

    It's really too bad. There IS no "most trusted name in news" anymore.

    BCE Inc., the country’s largest communications company and parent of Bell Canada, chalked up fourth quarter 2012 profit of $708 million, a 45 per cent increase over the same period a year before.

    For the full year net earnings were just over $2.6 billion on revenue of $19.9 billion, the company reported Friday, driven by its wireless and broadcasting divisions.

    Rogers Communications Inc.’s new chief executive still won’t go into detail on his strategy to reboot growth at the company, but he is now hinting that it will hinge on getting all of the giant’s telecom and media assets to work better together.
