    It's only funny until you start to think central planning screwed up somewhere in writing script for these talking heads. They usually change it around a bit for the different Anchors. I know they are more careful when doing stories on gun control or global warming or healthcare or..........
    Joseph Goebbels would be proud of what journalism has become nowadays.

    Well, its not just scripted, its all propaganda for the government. When all major networks report on every situation that involves any police activity by taking word for word the 'police press release' and calling that the news, its all scripted and its all propaganda for the government.

    I don't believe it is the government - I believe it is the corps behind the news media, which are just a few corps owned by a few people (*cough* Murdoch *cough*).

    These people of course do have a a lot of influence over the gov. too.

    But yes, very scripted. I learned that over 30 years ago when I was in the military and had some interaction with the MSM.
