Sigh…. http://m.mysanantonio.com/news/local/article/SAPD-motorcycle-cops-violate-city-policy-by-9965231.php October 12, 2016 8:45 AM Log in to Reply Lea Thrace uh. they violated written policy. whats the problem here? October 12, 2016 9:15 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Cmon, Lea. You’re ok with journalists showing blatant favoritism? Helping Clinton in the way it’s being reported? There might not be a “policy” against this type of collusion, but you know it ain’t right! October 12, 2016 9:19 AM Log in to Reply Lea Thrace Wait. What do journalists have to do with this? They (the cops) put on the hats and posed for the picture. No one forced them. They were also aware of the written departmental policy. What the heck happened to personal responsibility? They need to deal with the consequences of their actions. Doesnt matter who the heck they are supporting. October 12, 2016 9:44 AM Log in to Reply bethebalance just to go on a brief tangent here, i don’t think anyone in the world, at this point in time, should think that any journalistic outlet is unbiased. many may claim to be, and some may come close. but reporters and editors and advertisers are all human beings, each with their own agendas. i remember seeing one time that the 5th grade curriculum had a component about identifying and understanding potential bias in the media. it should be a component of every grade, and we should all ingest our news, from any source, with the understanding that it is never going to be 100% free of human interference.

Walter Cronkite was a human, and he probably had his own opinions, but viewers didn’t know what they were. He just read the news. But we are more critical viewers now. Even if the talking head seems unbiased some will claim the choice of stories reveals the bias. It’s like sports announcing: fans of both sides often dislike the national network announcers because it seems like they are biased towards the other team. Maybe we’re just generally more opinionated now. Fallout from the emergence of the internet. If we have an opinion we think we are right. If “objective” information contradicts that then there must be bias. October 12, 2016 12:28 PM Log in to Reply Will Durant I just try to balance my reading while recognizing the bias. The decline of print journalism is not insignificant. Television journalism is an oxymoron. October 12, 2016 12:52 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 They just can’t help themselves!
