Arianna Huffington Video - Arianna Huffington Right is Wrong - Arianna Huffington Speech - Arianna Huffington Editor of the Huffington Post Speaks Out
Arianna Huffington Speech - Arianna Huffington is the editor of The Huffington Post, a syndicated columnist and accomplished author. My question is...Is the media really biased?
I watched this video three times...yes THREE TIMES. Arianna Huffington's latest book is entitles, "Right is Wrong." To be honest, I am not sure that the media is truly biased in either direction.
Arianna Huffington talks about the shift of the left to the center and the conservative bias of the media. She fails, however, to give the American people any credit whatsoever for being able to think for themselves.
If she is so convinced that American sentiment has truly shifted to center and she feels that the media is extreme right, then Americans must have changed DESPITE the media...so what difference does it make what bias the press might have, if any?
Further, how can anyone who is expressing their own OPINION and political views ever be WRONG? They might not actually AGREE with Arianna Huffington...but that doesn't make them WRONG.
I am not saying that Arianna Huffington is WRONG either. Perhaps her theory might better be explained by the realization that the American population is no longer decidedly left OR right in their political views.
Perhaps there has been a blurring of sentiment on the part of the American People because they are now better informed by the media, hence have varying views that don't fall into distinct party lines depending upon their beliefs regarding various issues.
Granted, many of the "left" wing views, particulary regarding global warming are of extreme importance and should be brought to the attention of all Americans by the media. My theory is that many issues are of such great importance that they fall beyond traditional party lines.
Just a reminder, I am still running for President...so there is still hope.;) If enough people write me in on election day it will send a clear message to Washington to address the issues.
