How much of the news is actually news??

Jesse Avraham's detailed analysis of one hour of CNN programming demonstrates quite well how little real news actually reaches viewers of the major American networks. A tantalysing blurb:
"Our enemy is not terror, it is not Islam, it is not the radical suicide bomber, it is the threat to our society that ignorance poses to our nation. America has become a nation of misinformed radical flag wavers who do not even understand what they are supporting when they flaunt their patriotism. We are taught that democracy means that we all get to sing the national anthem before every sport event but we do not realize that without free press we have no democracy. "
