commentator != journalist you fuckstick. this is the reason so much of the USA is fucked. they don't see the difference here. so many are actually getting their "news" from commentators. commentators tell you what they think. it is great for people who don't know how to think. actual news just leaves people like you confused

Can you tell me a "journalist" who gives no bias whatsoever? No. It's absolutely impossible, down from the tone in which an event is described to the words used. I don't care which "News" organization you follow, every single "journalist" is a commentator.

Thanks for your all-knowing remarks, Oh wise one.

I can understand your annoyance at people who think that the likes of O'Reilly and Glen Beck only spit the news out, but in all reality, every single person who reports on an event or situation includes his/her own bias. Journalists and commentators are practically one in the same in prime time cable news -- where the average person takes in their news for the day.

All you people bitching about NPR: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nationa...adio#Criticism

If you are looking for a SINGLE source that is nearest the center and also most educational... yea NPR is probably it.

Diversity is key though...
Great way to quote a Wikipedia page, call it golden and say it's the best. Thats like saying CNN is the best because they have both liberal and conservative reporters -- even though it's still left leaning.

do you really think that bias is the defining factor between a journalist and commentator? Even if that was your one, wrongly so, defining attribute there is still a large degree in the level of bias there.

Commentator

a writer who reports and analyzes events of the day

Journalist

a writer for newspapers and magazines
Looks like I was wrong. According to Princeton they're exact same thing.

Darn :-( Commentators "analyze" and journalists never do that. Looks like we're just going to have to get into the semantics of everything

I actually agree with you, which hopefully wont make your head explode due to the current costs of health care in the US.

I realize the journalist telling me that Obama is heading to wherever tomorrow morning may put a bit of inflection into their report, but it's still journalism.

You're stupid if you take commentators as news sources and you're stupid if you hold them to the same credibility as journalists.

Cable television has political commentary shows listed as talk, not news.
