Are You Getting Informed?

Much of our information upon which we base decisions are gathered from the news sources we use. But if you, like millions of others are getting your news from ABC, CBS or NBC (or MSNBC), then you simply are not getting the news. You are not being informed.

On Tuesday, Missouri voted on as referendum on the Health Care law. In spite of the fact that Missouri is split 50/50 between Republicans and Democrats, they voted against accepting the health care law by a margin of 71%. That is a whopping number, considering at least 20% of those had to be from Democrats.

Well, the vote was no sooner over than it was addressed by Fox News. But what is really telling is that NONE of the "Big 3" - ABC, CBS or NBC - even mentioned it. Nothing. They were absolutely silent about it, because it did not reflect favorably on their own liberal agenda.

If you get most or all of your news from ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC or the New York Times, then you should not by any stretch of the imagination consider yourself informed.
