The big problem is Watergate legacy. Journalism brought down a president, and at that point, it stopped being about reporting what was happening in the world to changing the world. And you and I both know which types are most excited at the prospect of changing the world.

In fact, Trump is giving them all kinds of thrills thinking they can re-enact Watergate all over again and bring down the president. Of course, they think they're on a moral crusade, but really, they just want to prove they can.


Sad state of affairs now for sure. Nadler and cronies are delusional. Pretty much Operation Mockingbird 2.0 on steroids at this point.

They lean heavily, HEAVILY left in their coverage. They are the bread to Fox News' butter. Not sure how anyone could deny they are extremely biased in favor of liberal talking points and rhetoric.



Only left in terms of some social issues but that’s all.

Phil Donohue a real lefty was kicked off MSNBC because he went against the Iraq war.


Sure their anti-Trump but so are many conservatives.

Hmmm... I wasn’t aware of that. Who owns them now?

He sold out to Time-Warner. I remember recent discussions of AT&T buying the business and getting CNN in the deal. Not sure if that went through. I guess we could Google it but I'm not up to it today.

Anyway, although I believe CNN is completely off the rails, I have always had respect for Ted. In the 80's (when I was in my early 20's), the local news loved to get him to say things on camera. What I liked about him was his way of saying things off the cuff. He was kind of the Trump of the 1980's. He'd say things that weren't politically correct and would inadvertently offend others. Don't ask me to prove it. It's a memory (long before Google) and links are to places in my brain inaccessible from the Internet.

I agree that CNN and the MSM are not "left."

The terms "left", "right", "conservative", "liberal", "moderate", "radical", etc., are terms used to subdivide people who might otherwise unite for common causes. If you hold Opinion A on Issue 1, then you must be in Box Blue and must always oppose the people in Box Red.

The real sides are the Globalists who have the ultimate goal of a single world government run by our "superiors" and the Nationalists who want to live their lives with as much freedom as possible.

CNN and the rest of the MSM are firmly in the Globalist camp. They will support anything that gives governments and multinational groups more power over individuals. They are "liberal" and "left" when it comes to supporting gun control, open borders, and government having the final say in how people must live their lives. They are "conservative" and "right" when it comes to regime changing countries that don't fall into line, putting down protests in NWO nations, having government spying on citizens, etc.

They are conspicuously silent on issues that would unite large groups of people from across the political spectrum against the will of the government.

"Elite pedophile rings? That doesn't happen."

"Remember when we told you we had ironclad proof that we should go to war with Iran, North Korea, or Venezuela? Well, forget about that. We have. Maybe next time."

I don't watch Fox News either but I still know it's a right wing echo chamber in the same way that CNN is a left wing echo chamber. It's obvious even for those who take a cursory glance.


Tell that to Shep and Chris Mathews, hell maybe even Cavuto.

That was then, this is now! MSNBC is the anti Fox. Second only to CNN for their hate for Trump. It's almost this isn't a left/right thing at all. It's a Trump or no Trump thing.

Your going on so many false premises among which is the false premises that the left wants to share the wealth. They don't, they want to consolidate control in the hands of government.

A lot of conservatives hate Trump like two who want to run against him.

And real left-wingers despise CNN. Just because people both don’t like Trump doesn’t mean they like CNN or MSNBC.

Is that what the cool kids are calling highly biased and slanted opinion, masquerading as news these days?

Truth??

OK. Whatever.

The majority of the MSM in this country does lean to our country's version of the Left. That said, the mainstream Left in this country is pretty much the rest of the 1st World's moderate Right.

Two isn't a lot but sure, there are conservatives that don't like him.

I'm glad to hear that left-wingers don't care for CNN. We should all, left/right/center, be wary of the media. They have an agenda. We should all be free to make up our own minds. Unfortunately, we are a country in search of an enemy. Since we can't find one abroad, we go after each other.

MS-NBC and CNN are corporate media outlets. They are not leftist organizations trying to bring about a redistribution of power away from their corporate advertisers. They are just NOT anti-Corporation. They are not organizing strikes and they NEVER say anything bad about how their advertisers are rigging the markets and gouging the American consumer with cartels and monopolies. NEVER!!!!

So because they are corporations who support other corporations, they cannot be leftist? They are what I call the mainstream left, they have clear left leaning slants to their publishing but they also aren't willing to report important news that might harm their bottom line. All you've really shown with this thread is why it's so damn important to seek out alterative sources whether you lean to the left or the right, because MSM sources are never going to give you the full story. Yet they will kick and scream all day long trying to convince you they aren't fake news and that only idiots seek out less authoritative sources. Maybe now you can see why such an argument is nonsense.

End of the day though, CNN reports on all the same things fox news reports about.

So at the end of the day, this whole left vs right MSM nonsense is clearly just a big smoke screen. Or controlled opposition orchestrated by TPTB... and all you minions just fall for it every single time.

... Hook, line and sinker!

They may report on the same issues but there’s no denying the fact that they are two completely different narratives.

But I thought there was no such thing as TPTB or the deep state... funny how they only exist when it helps you make a point. At the core of all of this are two competing ideologies; capitalism and socialism, and it's clear who stands on which side of things. CNN is clearly on the socialist side of things despite them being a corporation, dfn stated that CNN is not anti-Corporation therefore they aren't really leftist, which is just not legitimate logic. Being left leaning does not automatically have to mean being against corporations, MSM news corporations aren't that radical nor should they be. However they are on board which most of the far-left rhetoric and the stupid things their guests say, because it gets views and helps push the anti-Trump agenda. This isn't just a big game or smoke screen, it is the political climate of the world right now and it has clear roots in these two opposing ideologies. To act as though you're above it while also pushing the same leftist talking points is really ironic.
