That would be nice. It would be nice to see reporters learn how to ask questions and use follow-up questions to clarify the answers. It would be nice if said reporters actually researched background. It would be nice if there was no influence from the media suits but then again it's what the Kardasians are doing that pays the bills isn't it.

That isn't how some people vote.

Some people vote out of "emotions".
How they "feel".

"Benghazi" is a perfect example of this.

In a highly charged political environment, news is treated in the context of how it reflects on the political party supported by the news outlet. The New York Times is the prime example of an unvarnished political agenda. In the US it is difficult to receive unbiased reporting. The Economist from the UK comes closest to unbiased reporting.

You can actually find good reporting, but you have to search for it. If you try to put "good" reporting in a daily newspaper like The Deseret News, readership will virtually disappear. The vast majority don't want to be bothered with details that requires you to pay attention. So don't blame reporters or the newspapers.

The best source for unbiased International reporting --

AlJazeera America -- hands down.

You get what you pay for. Question for those who are reading this comment: When was the last time you paid for your news? When I was young, my parents had a subscription to the daily newspaper and it was delivered to a box nailed to the side of our mailbox. Today I subscribe to on-line versions to a couple of publications that provide me with in-depth information on specific narrow subjects but for daily news, I get it for free just like everyone else.
