Don't watch MSNBC, but at least with Fox the whole damn channel is this sort of spastic cheerleader BS. Perhaps is nonsense is the only way to fill a 24 hour news channel and still draw in crowds, but I can't watch it for long without puking in my mouth.

Why can't we have serious news channels, not ones that are made for and by children?

Oh please, you ever see half of Maddow's interviews where she is much worse in shouting down people, or Joan Walsh? When given facts that refute their propaganda they yell, and just throw out bombs. I will admit I think this interview crossed the line but Kelly was spot on. Powers had no idea what she was talkjng about and basically Obama and Holder let his Black Panther slide when he clearly broke the law. Powers was ill prepared to make her statement and didn't want to admit but Kelly needs to calm down a bit. She is turning into a hate monger like Levin has. It's bad enough we have MSNBC for this we don't need anybody else.

Bull.

Megan Kelly went for 7 minutes talking over her colleague. (That's right, her COLLEAGUE) to make sure her point could not be heard. She even threatened to turn off her mic. I dare you to find an example of that elsewhere. Even your hated Rachel Maddow let Rand Paul speak for like 20 minutes to make sure he got his point across.






I'm waiting.

Quoting NIKV69 (Reply 7):

1) If she had no idea what she was talking about, it would have been clear when she actually presented her argument, which Kelly refused to allow.
2) How do you know that she didn't know what she was talking about, considering she ever wasn't able to present her point?

Megan Kelly didn't just "cross a line." She failed at being a journalist, and attempted to silence dissent. Not good...

I really don't want to debate news Channels, but with the Combination of Hannity, O'Reilly, this chick, and a few others, Fox News has them all beat to hell when it comes to over talking guests or colleagues to make their own points.

Maddow, Olbermann, etc., may over-talk as well, but not to the point where they are near shouting or cutting their guests off every time they make a point and start to prove it. Just youtube search any O'Reilly video that is not pro-Conservative, and he will be cutting people off the entire video.

Here's an example:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTkFU4MtubU

As to the video above, that was pretty much a bitch fest, but nothing comes close to this:

Actually she was preventing Powers from making ill conceived statements about something she knew nothing about. She asked a good question as to her credibility to answer how she did. Was it professional? No but she wasn't shouting over anyone just trying to make Powers look less foolish. Her point shouldn't be heard because it had no validity. I can watch a video and not have any idea what happened but I am not going to make professional opinions about it and if I try and someone asks me if I heard sworn testimony from people that were actually there I am going to answer. not try to change the subject. That flies on MSNBC where facts are constantly twisted but not on Kelly's court.

Then why did she keep trying to change the subject when Kelly asked her if she had any first hand knowledge of the topic?

I'm a fervent conservative, but I hate it when media types with whom I agree resort to bad manners to get their points across. Can't they realize that the chances of getting their points across increase markedly when they are composed, polite, and non-condescending?

Megyn Kelly is funny. "I know more about thus case than you do". I love how Megyn let the Conservative columnist speak without interrupting once, then when the other person comes in.... Oh shit she's disagreeing with me so I absolutely have to cut her off before she's had the chance to say anything, then in turn tell her she knows nothing about the case EVEN before she's had a chance to present her argument. But no, they're fair and balanced.  They're about as fair and balanced as Megyn's hairline.

The best part of the video is when Megyn is telling Powers that she keeps cutting her off.   . That is AMAZING

Well, D L X, as much as I hate to admit it, he's got you there. Those were every bit as bad as the crap I've seen from Fox, and that's not easy to do.

I wonder, do guests ever simply tell these abusive hosts to go f*ck themselves and walk off in the middle of the show? I know I would. It always bewilders me that this sort of 'journalism' is actually tolerated and apparently even encouraged on U.S. 'news' networks. I guess journalistic integrity is the first thing that goes out the door if it can get them extra viewers...

Well then maybe this should be a sign that we (the US) should stop watching/reading this junk on Fox, MSNBC, Huffington, etc. etc. because its not helping, and in fact hurting our country severely. By encouraging this low, low level of discourse not only sets the bar way low for political debate, but could actually persuade people who watch this who think whomever shouts the loudest is always right -- probably a scary proportion of our population.

Oh, oh, wait... silly me, this is the free market at work! All hail the free market that which has brought us this quality journalism! Let us bow down to this all-glorious and never-failing free market!

Are there any sources of journalism available in the US today? Seems to me the options are infotainment or rabid party based propaganda that is beginning to rival Goebbels.

For US news, I usually review NYT, Chicago Tribune, NPR, KCRW Podcast Left, Right and Center to get a range of views. In no way should FOX, that little cup of poison, be considered journalism. I feel sorry for those who see it as such. Murdoch is on record saying he sees his role as directing public opinion to align with his ideology. The facts are secondary.
