I have to wonder why anyone bothers with TV news at all. Almost all of it is a complete joke.
I find PBS NewsHour
still maintains a pretty high standard with longer-form pieces and extended interviews. BBC World News America
is also excellent. I'm sure there some will claim they are biased but I think it would be pretty hard to demonstrate.
I have read some who say that the "Golden Age" of conscientiously-neutral TV news may have been more an aberration due to the scarcity of bandwith, and now that's loosened up journalism is going back to its "natural state" of competing partisan outlets.
