Really, as an outsider looking in (and I say this as a Brit who has seen the good name and impartial reputation of the BBC destroyed by leftist agitators and progressive activism),
the MSM in the States is about as unprofessional, unimpartial, insincere and unreliable as it is possible to be and it's shameless spin, propaganda and disinformation would have Goebbles beaming in admiration...apparently North Korean lunatic Kim Un is a great fan of the U.S media machine.
So please, lets stop this liberal nonsense about right wing outlets fooling a gullible and dumb populous
It's just another thinly veiled way of saying dumb Republican voter.
I am still not convinced that liberals and conservatives are just equally biased, but in different directions. For the record, here is how I am now thinking about things—an argument that was not entirely explicit in The Republican Brain, because my thinking has advanced further since then.
We know conservatives score higher on the need for closure. We also know, from Jonathan Haidt’s research, that they are more loyal to their group, tribe, or team. And these are not unrelated: Belonging to a group provides epistemic closure—a much desired sense of certainty, because you adopt that group’s views and membership in it provides you with a sense of stability and belonging.
So is it very surprising, then, that the views of the group get strongly defended, even if they may be factually wrong?
And it is just as important that liberals are the opposite—less loyal, less likely to affirm central dogmas of the group.
I think this may explain why, in some motivated reasoning tests where there isn’t much emotional at stake, you tend to find equal left-right biases. But in others, where there is something moral, emotional, or group oriented involved—or something political—you sometimes find conservatives more wedded to their beliefs.

Title: NY Times, CNN Fall For Fake Eyewitness Blaming San Bernardino on GamerGate
The New York Times, CNN, and Associated Press all fell for an elaborate hoax where a troll pretended to be a witness to the San Bernardino shooting.
A Twitter user using the handle of @JewyMarie tweeting during the attacks claiming to be a witness. A number of reporters then contacted her, and she managed to bluff her way an through an extensive interview with AP, which was then reported by The Times:
He told the woman not to move or say anything. When she asked what he was doing, he replied, “for necessary ethics,” according to Parker. The woman said he had a strange emblem on his shirt with the letters GG on it. He didn’t harm her, just asked her to stay quiet, Parker said.
3. Suppression of brutality perpetrated in Bahrain during the Arab Spring
But threats for Lyon to remain silent followed her off the job, and when she persisted in exposing the Bahraini regime, as well as the suppression by CNN, the outlet sent a stern warning to halt. Lyon, however, said she had never signed a non-disclosure agreement and would not be pressured into their lies — ultimately walking away reputation in hand — something that could not be said for CNN.
