Critical vs. Adversarial

    The Jimmy B. vs. Andy Katz discussion reminded me of a recent Facebook experience.

    A friend of one of my FB pals was advocating an adversarial press was essential for a free society. I chimed in with my preference for a critical press. The friend's friend ripped me a new one and lectured on the First Amendment. It was pretty obvious where the individual's political interests were aligned.

    Seems to me if the press is to be adversarial, bias is inevitable. Thoughts?

    I thought this thread was about every discussion on this board.

    There needs to be both critical and adversarial media, on both sides of every issue, for the media to be working properly.
