Adam Kokesh spoke briefly with staff members of C-SPAN on their Campaign 2012 tour bus, and discussed the network’s role in contemporary journalism. When asked whether C-SPAN was “an objective news source,” the representative replied “C-SPAN … is a primary source of information. We don’t alter the information at all.”
Did you catch that?
They don’t “alter the information at all,” as if to imply that objective journalism necessarily involves altering information, not simply reporting what happened.
I don’t hold any delusions regarding objective news media; they’re all biased in favor of the established order. In fact, a majority of the sources I get my news from is biased against the state and its sycophants in the traditional news companies. But in those cases it’s clearly meant to be opinion-based, and not “fair and balanced,” or a “we report, you decide” style of reporting.
