    its been said the net may b the last source of un edited information. fam how do u feel, we all know that there r many un reliable sources on the net but at the same time there is much info ud never hear on television or read in papers.
    personally i feel the cnn's and ms nbc's are simply ratings driven enterprises supported by right wing corporations(in short full of ****), some more conservative than others.
    do you think that at least some main stream news media is ultimatley controlled by the government? do u trust the net before u trust the stations?

    Anytime you have "embedded" reporters you have censored news, they will only be able to report what they are exposed to. Like remember the "Fall of Bagdad" if one would have believed those early reports, the invasion was over and the troops would have been home by now. Its almost two years later and they are increasing their troop levels.
    My answer is yes, the internet offers less censorship in regards to news. :juggle:
