    best way to get "news" is watching and observing, fastest way to a happy life is dont watch any news what so ever. Accept that no matter what there is nothing but stupid shit going on out there and knowing the details is irrelevent. Crank up the tunes and be happy.

    Id rather not have any of it. This is the news every day for the past 40 years

    People did dumb shit today
    Politicians did dumb shit today
    Stupid money was wasted today
    People are crying today
    Nothing changed today

    Every source is biased in some fashion. Attempting to see through the smokescreen by only basing opinions on a conclusion based upon a myriad of sources is sadly not a technique much employed.

    random americans are way too lazy and impatient for this, we want our news right freakin now and we're too busy with our daily lives to realize that the 30 second news snippet we just saw was actually totally innacurate

    Sorry, I'll have to change that and do better/worse next time.

    The news used to depress me so bad, I like living in oblivion the past 15 years, even then what you see go down in life is bad enough but it hurts less when I didnt get to witness too many of the scams when they try to conjure everyone into believeing "they are doing something good... it will be better in the end... you'll see".

    Yep, Im still waiting

    yawn

    every source is biased, but random people aren't so much biased, as much as just being to lazy to go through the effort of being completely unbiased

    Now that is biased because not all news snippets are innaccurate. To say all are is totally inaccurate in itself.

    It it possible, just possible that maybe (or maybe not) the camera man took that angle on purpose but the female news anchor wasn't told the race of the armed citizen. If you watch the clip again she doesn't seem to be reading some prepared when she said that. It seemed a spur of the moment based on what she saw in the clip taken in AZ.

    Don't see it at MSNBC. Attacks and exaggerations ya, blatant intentional lies, nope.

    Anyways Fox and MSNBC are the Ren and Stimpy show of "news". There for entertainment etc. purposes then anything else.

    Ren and Stimpy are smarter than the people at News Corp anyway. MSNBC are getting there as well.

    That it was done on purpose, not an "accident".

    Ironically, all options offered are not good sources for more than bits and pieces of twisted fact and loads of biased blithering bullshit.

    Well since none of us was there, one guess is as good as another. I am not suggesting any particular responsible party, just that the collapse was not due to an accident.
