Earlier this week, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly had John Stossel on The O’Reilly Factor, and the two discussed how far journalism standards have fallen and, of course, blamed liberals.
“Obviously the standards of journalism, and we’ve talked about this before,” said O’Reilly, “and you and I have been in the business for a long time, you about 65 years, me 35, but they have declined dramatically in this country, and it’s not a big issue for the folks because … ah, the business, but I think it hurts the country. I think it really does.”
“And I don’t agree that it’s declined so much,” Stossel said. “I think they were always bad. When we started there was only the liberal way, and it’s true, they didn’t publicly sneer in the media, but they were pretty biased. At least now there’s an alternative.”
