Well some of fox is pro trump, some isnt.
I know I will probably get flak for this, and on the whole I am extremely critical of the mainstream media in the entirety.
But I think we often make the mistake of lumping all msm people together. Or at least by network or cource.
The truth is, although there control of what can be said about the big issues from the corporations that own the news networks or papers, individuals
within them can still be remarkably different.
So lets take fox news.
Hannity is about as much of a trump shill as you can get. He will never, ever say things critical of trump in a serious fashion. Now sometimes, he
still gets things right (in my pinion), but I dont like watching him.
Now compare that to Shep smith, who hates trump with a passion, and almost never says anything good about him. And there are all sorts of anchors in
between on fox.
Now look at CNN. I dongt know them as well, and think there is less diversity because they all seem to disapprove of trump overall, however, there
are still diifernces. Some of their anchors seem more reasonable, like maybe Jake tapper, than someone like don lemon.
And even don lemon says things I agree with on occasion.
So it is a mixed bag.
But overall, I feel that msm is dying, and is becoming less about journlism, and more about punditry; and I feel alternative news based online will
eventually make it obsolete.
