Hi, I'm from England and have not had much experience watching American news channels. I don't know if Americans share my opinion, but to me MSNBC is a terrible news channel! I tuned into this 'Tucker' guy over the internet, and was quite frankly shocked by the amount of opinion, poor analysis, and sensationalism his show had. Aside from this, his hugely inflated ego shone through his reporting and sickened me. A perfect example of this was 'Everybody, including me, sympathises with Israel’s position, they are simply defending themselves'. You can't say opinions like that on a news channel, especially when you claim to be representing all America's opinion by saying 'everybody'! Another example includes his report on Mel Gibson's outburst against Jews. His reply to a guest's statement that Jews would forgive Gibson was something like 'Yeah but Christians will also be appalled, I’m a Christian and I’m appalled, this guy is deranged'. What is this?! Another amazing incident was when, after listening to some politician say 'We should LEVEL Falluja' Tucker, the news anchor, proceeded to imitate him by shouting 'Lets level the place! Let’s kill everyone and make it a parking lot!' He was obviously being sarcastic, but News Anchors simply should'nt do that. This quality of news is quite frankly appalling. I'm used to watching the BBC, where there is no/very very little opinion conveyed. The facts are reported as they are, and News Anchors certainly don’t voice their own opinion, unless its over something light hearted and funny, not something like a touchy middle eastern conflict. I thought Sky News was poor quality and sensationalist, but this Tucker guy takes it to another level. If a media company chooses to report news, you can't lace it with News Anchors opinions and sick jokes! They’re morphing one of the outlets the American public uses to get its information from the outside world. Freedom of unbiased information is supposed to be a democratic right, something that America likes to boast about when it exports democracy to other places, saying how they are unlike previous governments who censor heavily. I understand poor quality news isn’t quite the same as censorship, but it bares similarities (i.e. morphing news output). As I said, I don’t have much experience of American news, so other channels might not be like this. Who is this Tucker *****? Do people take him seriously? Is he a proper News Anchor or is his show supposed to be a sort of 'after hours' light hearted take on serious world issues? What is the opinion of American members on this board about this muppet and about American news quality in general?
