There was an excellent editorial on this subject in yesterday's International Herald Tribune, comparing, e.g., al Jazeera and Fox News. Unfortunately, when I went back to copy and paste, I found that it had already been deleted (it's after 1 a.m. here), and Google doesn't register any hits. I'm an absolute "news junkie", and literally have about 30 news sites bookmarked, and watch 3 or 4 newscasts every evening. Definitely sick - my father was always tuned into 24-hour radio news, subscribed to two newspapers, and often bought a third, and once CNN was created, had the TV on all the time - either it's his fault, or a hereditary illness. I have to agree - every news source seems to put its personal slant on what it's reporting, whether we're talking CNN, the NY Times, Washington Post, the Christian Science Monitor, BBC, the Independent, the Wall Street Journal, the Economist, "Faux News", etc., etc., etc.. One thing I love about this forum is that the participants offer links to their local newspapers, favorite sources of info, etc., so that you can keep up on "stories".
