How can he get away with this?

The network, owned by the News Corporation (news/quote) of Rupert Murdoch, has
always had a reputation-one it disavows-of being politically conservative. But
its demeanor since Sept. 11 has surprised even its critics. The network is
encouraging correspondents and writers to tap into their anger and let it play
out in a way that reminds some rivals and press critics of the war drumbeat of
the old Hearst papers and the ideologically driven British tabloids.
This is crazy to me how this guy is still in charge of all these businesses. I believe that he has so much influence, money, and connections to do and say as he pleases. I don't understand i thought news wasn't supposed to be biast, i thought news was news and there were no sides. Apparentally i was wrong its all a business and who ever has the most connections makes the most decisions. I feel for as long as he has been in charge this has been going on and i believe as long as he stays on top he will continue to do the same. This in fact starts to make Americans one-sided and can end up hurting us in the long run.
