On Tuesday's live BlazeTV special, "Media Meltdown," Glenn Beck, Eric Bolling, and Bill O'Reilly discussed whether today's media is more or less honest and credible than when television's "big three" networks" ruled the airwaves.
"Even though we are having real, harsh debate right now ... voices are being heard and people are being exposed for who they are. As ugly as it is right now, aren't we better off than we were?" Glenn asked.
"No, and I'll tell you why," asserted Bill, who noted that he has worked with CBS' Dan Rather and ABC's Peter Jennings.
"There were standards at both places, CBS News and ABC News. If you were going to report something, you had to back it up with facts. So, there was a mandate to seek the truth," Bill said. "When you brought your report in, you were asked, 'How do you know?' That's gone. Nobody's looking for the truth any more. It's all agenda-driven reporting."
"So, we are worse off now than we've ever been in the history of this republic, media-wise," he added.
