- Outside The Beltway – Why all the American networks are the same when it comes to news from Egypt
Don’t know I completely buy into this, but James Joyner has an excellent point – that the news from the American networks is more alike than it is different. Fox, CNN, MSNBC… they aren’t all that different. Joyner quotes Steven Taylor:American television news puts “too much focus on talking to pundits and politicos and not enough of an attempt to talk to actual experts.”
