Many years ago, US broadcast media was required to present all sides of an issue. Responses to news programs were permitted and encouraged, and opinion programs were ALWAYS identified as such. This policy was in effect from 1949 - 1987 with a final removal from the books in 2011.
Think about what's happened to your broadcast media since 1987 -- and think about what you think you know about the world since the differentiation between news and opinion became so blurry in the last decade.
