Is There Such Thing As Unbiased News Sources Anymore?

It is human nature for anyone to lie to cover their butt's if they have done something wrong. So, for your argument to hold any water would require the police to have done something wrong....maybe in your neck of the woods that is an issue.....but in my town, that king of action ends up with a cop looking for a new job.

10 people can watch the same sequence of events....and your going to end up with 10 different versions......much of what they remember is greatly influenced by their own personal disposition/opinion on the subject. One expects cops and reporters to be the least biased of the groups....

So...Rusty....if your brother is a cop and you have the opinion you do....well....sad situation

Police get arrested for attempted cover-ups all the time. But some they get away with.

oh. so called "news". well, the "so called" reporters (word holes is more accurate) don't want to offend anyone, so they don't report much.

news stations and politicians are the same. they are not in it to serve the public.
they are in it to serve themselves.

money talks.

Cliff note version
He and his midnight crew tortured criminals to confess. I didn't see anywhere where they proved Innocent people were convicted. The tortured people were all hard core criminals.

Borg was convicted of lying about the torture.

Ok....put him in jail

Please note. This was over 20 years ago and it is after all Chicago.

How many Chicago politicians have been charged and convicted in the past 20 years?

(AP) Recent studies have shown that journalistic integrity has expired from the face of the Earth. Follow our week long in depth coverage of these findings with lots of speculation and innuendo but no facts.

I'm still waiting for a story about how police lied.

Nothing this week? How about this month?
