    I didn't say that there is any system that can erase shitheads from the equation. How did you get that from my post? BTW, if you "call B.S." on somebody, you should explain your viewpoint in the actual thread, instead of doing it in a neg rep comment.

    I gave the example of extreme politicians who make outlandish statements to get attention, and they are some of the shitheads in the particular system I described. But by no means am I saying the media or politics in Denmark is superior to those in North America... But I maintain that it is possible for a system to be biased towards the middle. But being "middle" doesn't imply "more reasonable." It has its own flaws, some of which I described. If you thought I meant to put down American news media, you misunderstood. I was only highlighting a few differences. But ultimately, no matter where you go, politics is politics, and loudmouth idiots exist everywhere, including Denmark.

    And I'm not sure who you're talking about when you mentioned "people who reluctantly improve themselves." Danish news presenters? Politicians?

    Oops! I'm pretty sure I was trying to reference the 'loud-mouthed, extreme politicians', but I did it in a really shitty way. The internet has obviously destroyed my brain. I wasn't trying to call BS, and I don't remember the last time I neg-repped someone (I don't think I've ever done so without signing my name), so I don't know what happened there.

    I'm don't think any particular nation's news media deserves to be targeted, so much as any news-media organisation that prioritises maximising profits over hiring competent journalists and editors. Admittedly, it's very difficult in a world of heavy media competition and 24-hour news channels and websites.

    From an earlier post

    The younger generation is less technologically illiterate, less ignorant, and more likely to use the internet to verify information they receive. That's why they hate CNN news. They can easily verify if what they are being told is fact or fiction, biased or balanced.

    The idiot demographic that CNN news captures so well are the type of close-minded, antiquated dullards, that will lap up everything they are fed without question. The same kind of people that blindly cling to NEW age fairy tales, and the same kind of people that think BUSH was responsible for 9/11.

    Reminds me of those idiot LEFT-wingers that claim EVERYONE are actually the racist, bigoted Nazis. Remember...Nazi=National Socialist=FASCISM=CONSERVATIVE

    had to point out some things there. We as a people can't keep letting divisive things get in the way.
