There was a debate raging today whether the brilliant minds behind Fox News or CNN’s main staff were more up to the task of bringing us fresh, biting headlines. Is Fox News Live or CNN the better source of news?
Now some may say we’re the last people who should pose such a question, since several of our board of directors are affiliated with NewsCorp and we’re in the pockets of Fox News. To anyone so petty I’d like to remind you that prejudging someone is against any sort of ethical media, so your thoughts hold no weight in the world of professional journalism.
To answer this question, all that is really needed is an analysis of how responsible their day to day headlines are on each respective organization’s website.
Let us first look at our fair and balanced affiliates at Fox News:
Social Security Cans Cost of Living Increase

Those are good, solid headlines. They talk about issues that are relevant and important to today’s life and media. That’s Fox News; fair and balanced.
Now let’s see what’s playing on CNN.
‘Where the Wild Things Are’ gets it right
Inside David Letterman’s love life
These are the top two stories? Where the Wild Things Are get it right? David Letterman? Wow. Let’s keep looking.
America’s spookiest lighthouse
Master Potter Shares His Secrets
Scientist uses poison gas to halt death

Pterodactyl fossil fills evolutionary gaps
So when they aren’t gossiping about how David Letterman fornicated with his young staffers, they are trying to spread lies about fictional pterodactyls and fearmongering about global warming. Cute.
Then they top it off with a healthy-dose of Satanic rock band KISS with a helping of magic stories about a potter and evolutionists.
CNN should be ashamed of itself and just remove itself from the air. Fox News is the best, central souce for news on an international scale and you have the evidence you need; the headlines. The hard facts.
That’s what you deal with in journalism and that’s what we on the right dish out in a daily basis.
