Possibly of value here is Noam Chomsky’s functional definition of class as who it is that gets to decide. Capitalism has always been ‘authoritarian,’ with owners and bosses doing the deciding. Ironically, from the bourgeois perspective, politics finds these same authoritarians determining public policy through their surrogates in the political realm. Donald Trump’s existence is an argument against concentrated power, not who wields it.

Left is left of center in my opinion. Right is right of center.
What center is can vary.
How wide center is would be the biggest question.
Many people view themselves as center when others view them as being left or right of their own 'center'.
It is subjective.

CNN, and MSNBC are leftist organizations by almost anyones standards, although I believe their anti Trump agenda gives them little choice in the matter.
As far as I am concerned, both those entities have ceased to be "news outlets", and are now soley purveyors of dem propaganda.

Wow, a philosopher gives an opinion on humanity.
Never heard one of them do that before.

No, man, just no. CNN and MSNBC are not 'right wing media outlets' by any stretch of the imagination.
To be fair, I see the point you are trying to make here, I do. But you are doing the O'Reilly thing in the opposite direction.
Chomsky, Motherjones and those others you named, well, they are just radical, and anything less radical , I guess, you must consider on the right! Right?
