  • Newscaster (n.) /ˈnjuːzˌkɑː.stər/someone who reads out the reports on a television or radio news program

Context

  • This comic strip is making fun of the fact that some news channels don’t really report an objective version of the facts, but only the version that they want the public to believe in. Do you feel this way sometimes when you watch the news? Do you think news reports can be completely objective?
