[citation][nom]Honis[/nom]What word did he submit? Really Toms, you're starting to look like Fox News with all this half reporting.[/citation]
I like how you ding FoxNews for its "half reporting", but you loose points and show your own hypocrisy by not pointing out the "half reporting" that goes just as much, or even more so, at CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, and MSNBC.

Really, it's only a simile, he doesn't need to compare the article to all other news channels/papers/outlets that have dodgy reporting to make his comment fair.

^ yea but Fox news has to vomit their news out after adding their own crappy opinions in it, which is not journalism, journalism is actually plain reporting not adding your own opinions and biases to the mix, That my friend is called gossip

Again, your hypocrisy is exposed when you refuse to believe that the other major networks are not doing the same thing..

Well then you don't watch the news very often. No major "journalism" based networks exist by your definition.

Back to the topic, the winning definition was............

http://www.computing.net/userinfo/203496 is the URL to my profile. I am not exactly sure which word won the contest but you can see a listing of the definitions I submitted there. I was hoping the article would include more information about me since i own a computer business and am the head of testing for an open-source software development project but I understand why they did not and still appreciate the gift certificate.

As a European, reading these comments, I am under the distinct impression that you have no real News Networks in the USA and that they are all full of opinionated, half finished and biased reports.

But mind you when the local news lasts twice as long as the international news, and is full of "Mss Smith's cat got stuck up a tree and the brave firemen had to climb up to get it" stories, I also have to question what the definition of "Real News" is in the USA.

Miss Smith's cat would only make the U.S. news if it gunned down the neighborhood dogs or could play some kind of professional sports.
