Is there a news outlet that just shows this is what happened? That's what I would like to watch.


Fox News has both Liberal hosts (example: Sheppard Smith), and Conservative hosts (Sean Hannity).


Fox news is the reason why news outlets are so poor these days.
They cracked the code of news reporting.

If Fox started doing heaps of negative stories about Trump they would lose viewers.
If CNN started doing heaps of positive stories about Trump they would lose viewers.

I don't like it but it's hard to argue that News agencies (which exist for profit) shouldn't appeal to their targeted demographic.

Did you read the last paragraph of the op?. He wants Russian Chinese North Korean type media.
Isn't it in the constitution about having a free press apart from government control.

You are probably mistaken on that one..

From THIS thread we got this scary comment...



I see it as an opportunity for President Trump to create a Social Network Platform that's independent of Facebook... and Twitter

I'm sick of the hypocrisy. the media establishment continues to claim fairness and deny bias but they are totally unfair and biased. I'd have more respect for them if they were honest about being advocacy journalists.

Fox told the truth about Obama but it never got hateful. these leftists are totally hateful and they are unable to think / report clearly.

lots of things going on--as mentioned, in the world of science especially--and being ignored.

we the people deserve much better from our media.

Watch this video and try to suggest that Trump has it any worse, this was all on the news during Obamas first 100 days:

www.youtube.com...

Keep in mind, Obama wasn't under investigation by the FBI, hadn't been recorded claiming sexual assault or sued by a porn star and didn't have a white house staff that had a 43% turnover rate.

The media divides us, the government conquers us.

Look at market share? Most media platforms are selling advertisements because they exist to make money. They aren't ethical informers here to tell us all, "Just the facts, ma'am. Just the facts." Popular programming attracts higher fees for advertising. Successful websites and newspapers charge more to advertise.

What you are seeing is a highly curated media set up to attract the widest audience (consumers and customers) possible. Nobody forces us to watch FOX or CNN. It's a choice and they are selling us what we want the most.

Everyone says they want the 'the unbiased Truth' but it doesn't sell and it might not really exist. In reality, we all want reaffirmation of our core beliefs. New Scientist doesn't compete with HuffPo or Brietbart because partisan political BS is more attractive than science.

# world, eh?

I know many of you ain't gonna like this, but other people live in the United States too. Don't like it? Quit paying so much attention to it. Or at the very least, let your guard drop and talk to other people sometime instead of yelling at and insulting them. If that's too much to ask, man, you've got the media soul sickness deep and I don't know how to help you further.

Pretty much everyone here used to acknowledge that the media is controlled dissemination of information, a group of organizations run by a handful of people who control what we see, hear and think. But they've been so divided by politics now that they are defending it now because it is on 'their side' and massages their confirmation bias.

This forum is dumber than it used to be. Shows how effective constant bombardment of bs can be.

ATS is staggeringly dumb these days isn't it. Nothing matters anymore but confirmation bias.

News channel says mean things about porn-star screwing cheating on his wife Trump? Cannot possibly be Trump's fault, must be LIBERAL MEDIAS FAULT!

The brainwashing is complete. I see no way of altering it at this point. True cult-like behaviour.

Indeed, the fact you couldn't even reply to a post about confirmation bias and political divide without showing your political bias is astounding.

Here is the amazingly large (and growing) list of President Trumps accomplishments for the United States and Americans.
Updated Weekly: www.magapill.com...


What's sad is that so many of these "accomplishment"s are negative. Tax revenues increased in January because people wanted to take advantage of the transition between rules. Property owners will not be able to deduct property taxes next year. Taking climate change off the "danger list" will cost us as more federal funds are needed repair the damage caused by rising seas and extreme weather. Boasting of "non-criminal arrests" is actually frightening.

Wow so he behaves badly 98% of the time.
You aren't saying that these reports are incorrect surely. Don't blame the media.
They're just reporting the truth.
If you just watch Fox you're the one who is being misled with fake news.
Hate to tell you. You need to tune in to one of those other stations to learn what's really going on.. Then maybe when people bring the real stories here you won t be all surprised by them or the results of the investigation.
You're not doing yourself any favors hiding from the truth. When it's revealed you will not understand and you'll be upset.

All news sources are biased.

How can I be so sure?
Because all people are biased.

If you refuse to accept that then you yourself are hiding from the truth.

You do know that MSM covered the taxes, and all the job reports and everything else.
The difference is that he wants to take credit for things he had nothing to do with and you want to praise him for the things that Obama actually did.
All of his talk about anyone who ever did this job before him is negative. According to him he's the only person in the whole wide world who can do it. It's a ridiculous thing to say and even more ridiculous thing to believe.
