It's fairly easy to fight back against the tide of extremism coming from the media.

Take responsibility for what you personally believe, that is, be aware of your own programming.

Use critical thought to parse out what is factual from what is opinion.

Provide an example of both in your every day life so that others can learn not by your telling them what to do but by showing them.

That, or just take a course in Communications 😏


From where the Marxist-infiltrated universities?

Not me buddy. Harumph.

But this guy didn't write an article or report this in the news , he just said it on twitter.

Is his twitter account an official news account?

If not then I have to say that it is sad that people can lose their jobs over lies they say on twitter.

Lot's of people lie on twitter.

I wonder how many ats members believe that people SHOULD lose their jobs for lies they tell on twitter?

I'm on my phone but it's happened so many times it's amazing you are even asking.

I remember watching CNN on TV and all day they were bashing Trump and the banner on the screen said something like "source: Trump will not sign eo to end separation of immigrant children". I came back an hour later and the news was Trump had just signed the eo.


So Donald Trump changing his mind makes CNN a liar? Wow.

So a republican journalists was using fake news to make americans angry?

Do you know for a fact he was republican because a lot of posters here are calling him a dem leftest.

And using the fact that he is a dem to bash all media.

They would look pretty silly if he is in fact a repub.

A true news organization would not. What threatens the 1st are the "news" organizations that are more concerned with shaping opinions than reporting facts.


Truth. The media, in general, have been ruining their reputation for years. Trump is their scapegoat right now, but the public trust has been going downhill a long time. If the media want to be "defenders of democracy" with their 1st Amendment right to freedom of the press, that right comes with some responsibility.

Unfortunately, "news" is now just a business, so I doubt we're going to recover from this anytime soon.
