So why do you not use the term "right wing media" then?



I don’t think it is accurate.


So you don't think right leaning media sources are accurate.

Glad we have that one record then!


No, I don’t think calling them “right-wing media” is accurate.


Well then why do you think its ok to call them "left-wing" media, just curious about the thinking behind your question.


The logic is that there are two sides to the spectrum, left and right. Why call one side right, while refusing to call the other side left?


Yup and when I turned that question back on you and asked why you wouldn't call it "right wing" media you didn't have an answer.

Seems odd to me.

I would imagine that the reasoning is pretty much the exact same.

I was asking why someone else would name it such, not professing how I name them. It seems odd that you’d turn it back on me without answering the question yourself. But then again, I realize that’s how one would avoid the question.

YES! Absolutely!

Then they try to point "fingers" elsewhere to absolve their own irresponsible sensationalism.

FOX was "my" station for years, until they became so ridiculous -- that the National Enquirer was more factually reliable.

I find most Right Wing news sources to be tabloid sensationalists.

I am avoiding the question???

Pot meet kettle, have a nice life together.

For the record, I have no problem calling a media outlet "left wing" or "right wing" depending on the specific source.

Here is a more interesting study from buisness insider..


“Fox News viewers are LESS informed than people who watch no media at all”

www.google.com...


Because to the rest of the world consecutive medua is a joke.

Left leaning?!?

By suggesting a legitimate way for people to prove what they spout on here constantly???

There is nothing about the op that is left leaning..

I suggested an objective way for ATS to establish who is really lying the most...

If you believe that is left wing media. Put up or shut up..

Let’s set something up.



I think the truth is that none of the conservatives here think right wing media would be the one who is most honest..

Awesome..

So suggest a fair conservative media opponent for msnbc..

Fox is the most credible of the laughing stock of the journalism world that is conservative media..

I see left leaning MSN and right leaning media. It is both propaganda. It doesnt take alot of brain cells to see it. I see the same thing with threads. The left is the left and the right is the right. I learned in life to take what truth one can find in the quagmire and find some sembelence of truth amongst all the propaganda. The propaganda I see nowadays is being sold by some really bad salemen with some really bad talking points.

Right now if one watches you will see that the left is starting to use the rights talking points and the right is doing what the left was doing while the were in charge.

The politicains and the media are playing games and hopeing the sheep stay in line.

Does the MSM or Rightwing Media push more propaganda stories???

So , by your logic the only Main Stream Media is the Liberal Left and the Right Wing Media is out their on it's own ?
You failed from the title , much less the rest of the thread
And , you don't get a do-over.

No I think that is a conservative propaganda joke..


That is why I didn’t say Fox News vs. CNN.. because it wouldn’t be a fair fight..


I said Fox News vs MSNBC..


Because I wanted to test news sour es that are a fair comparison to each other..

a reply to: Tarzan the apeman.

Only in the broadest definition like “everything is propaganda because everything is meant to portray a message” sense..

In the fake news sense I don’t think so..

In the fake news since it is easy to test”are they taking the individual stories of random nobodies and pretended g they represent t the whole left/right...



There are objective logical fallacies.

I argue that there is only the extremist media intending to keep the population in a constant state of anxiety, fear and anger.

I think there is clickbait. Then there is intentionally misleading propaganda meant to cause heat..

But I do not and even studies have been done to prove they are not created equal..

The left is much more into twisting things lately. Fox has always done some, but they are nothing in comparison to what the left MSM is spewing now. I used to listen to CNN, NBC, and others for my news because they were told the truth more than Fox. Now I don't want to watch these left deceivers at all anymore, sadly that is all we got for network national news here locally over the air. Their articles are way worse than their broadcasts though. I also notice that they often disappear within weeks so there is no evidence that they lied.

Then put your money where your mouth is and let’s establish rules and set something up...

We can make a thread for that purpose. Establish a “council” to rule over things that are questionable..

Which side is pushing the most propaganda is an objectively knowable thing.

Then If we set something up the results should come out relatively even..

I don’t think it will ..

That’s why the few studies done on it have found that people who only consume conservative media are less informed than those who watch no media at all..
