Standards And Practices

Someone I once interviewed for an article on the early days of HDTV back in the late 1990s, when the public was still sorting out all their viewing options, joked that “The nice thing about you Americans is that you have so many standards to choose from.”

And that’s true even with the programming that’s on TV, Stacy McCain writes:

The problem with the MSM is not that it has no standards, but that it has two standards. Or perhaps — considering how the MSM savaged Hillary Clinton in the primaries last year — we can now say there are three standards: One for Republicans, one for Obama, and one for Democrats who get thrown under Obama’s bus.

Which may explain, as Don Surber writes, “Why the cable news wars are now a slaughter.”
