they just want to prove they can.


Yes, but they just want to prove they can FIRST. Ive never seen journalism such as I have in the last decade or so. They have to be first so crazily that they report made up BS. I mean Ive seen BOTH left and right leaning orgs' journalists take great liberties with the truth and then when more info comes out they correct. "Breaking news" is more like " breaking guesses and lies". The tragedy in this is that people believe what they are fed by their fearless and trustworthy r or l specific news and reporters.

Ive also seen a good investigative reporter be pushed under the bus or ran out of the field.

If you believe everything you hear and see on Fox, youre a fool. If you believe everything you hear or see on CNN, youre a fool. It doesnt matter what side of the aisle youre on, ALL of this is to sway you and cement your support. Its all to control your mind and feelings. The right and left are the SAME thing. They work the same and work toward the same goals and the only difference is that they go about it differently. This is the danger of it. The PTB would poop themselves if we all turned off the news and got together on issues. Theyre doing wonderful job keeping us from that.

The problem is not me. The problem is everyone criticizing me has no idea what "left" means.

Apparently you missed the memo... 'left' now means radical-left Anti-FA (Anti-FirstAmendment) Socialist/Communist.


Republicans have all the money.

I'm not saying that many/most of the R's are much/any better, but... seriously? Some of the most corrupt and richest members of Congress are Dems, as are the heavily left-leaning CEOs of the major tech companies.


This whole thing about the "left-wing media" is just BS misdirection while the people in power screw the American people with a big fat giant rod.

Agreed as far as it goes.

Also - the vast majority of 'liberals' - who claimed that mantle 10+ years ago - are horrified at what they see happening to the Democrat party, and are jumping ship.

Every time I hear about how the media isn't biased and that it is just us poor plebs not "getting it" I think back to this:

“Pauline Kael famously commented, after the 1972 Presidential election, ‘I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon. Where they are I don’t know. They’re outside my ken. But sometimes when I’m in a theater I can feel them.'”

To those of you who don't know, Nixon won that election with 49 of the 50 states. (The only state that didn't vote go for Nixon was Massachusetts)

When you are surrounded with only information that backs up your own opinions, you begin to believe there ARE no other opinions. These are the "facts" of the left leaning media bias.

I try to open my mind to all of the opinions. I LISTEN! After I try to weigh all sides of an issue (or at least the sides of an issue I can see, I'm not perfect) I make up my own mind. If you listen to Fox and CNN on the same issue, you can rest assured the truth is probably somewhere, and less sensationalized, in the middle.

Remember, these media outlets are in this business for THEMSELVES. They are there for PROFIT. There is nothing wrong with this, but you need to REMEMBER IT. As soon as you believe they are there to inform you, you are lost. They are there to convince you that they are better than their competitors and in that they hope to attract your $$$ either directly or indirectly. Take all "news" with a grain of salt and look to see where the information came from. Sometimes where the information came from is just as important as what they are reporting.

As a person in the middle they very much are left as much as Fox is right. Only a lefty would say these things. It's very clear to me and about anyone I know.

They lean heavily to the truth.

And didn't you just write that you do not watch or listen to any political news and you just get that from ATS?

I would swear it was you who wrote that.


He's normally on your side, but you just be sure to scold him for talking out of place. How tolerant.

I disagree the media and those news companies are. very left leaning.
And once you are part of that. You cannot get out, you must keep up the rhetoric or you will.be cast out.

Silicon valley are very left leaning liberals with a strong policy, conservative Republicans are quiet lf they have not been cast out.

College and education also. very left leaning liberals. I know professors who said if the school or colleagues found out they voted Republican, she would be very sacred to what would happen.

A large portion of the media are left leaning liberals, you will be cast out of many stations if you shared Republican views.

Add BLM, LGBTQ, antifa.

Very left leaning liberal groups.

I don't know any groups or places of work that would go after you if you claimed to be a Democrat

But claim to be a Republican and you see clearly how both sides operate.

It really saddens me. If you actually believe their garbage "leans heavily to the truth", what truth are you looking for? Not the objective, honest one.
A thought experiment. Do you like Fox News? Do you think they lie?
Now why would they lie?

So with that logic, the other news outlets...

So the premise is the right wing owns all the media, and the media they own trashes them and runs pro-left stories 99% of the time.

That makes ZERO sense.

The problem is not me. The problem is everyone criticizing me has no idea what "left" means. I once heard Sean O'Reiily say he was "fair and balanced" and that he had "leftist on my shows all the time." The problem is when you are that far to the right everyone is a leftist.

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!!!!

If you want true left leaning commentary go to this site:

truthout.org...

and this one:

www.motherjones.com...

There are stories on these sites the corporate media would NEVER run.

If CNN and MSM were really left wing they would be talking about voter suppression, "More People Are Voting — But 1,688 Polling Places Have Closed in 6 Years" Just look at the headlines in the two sites I've reference. This is TRUE left wing thinking.

CNN and MSM will NEVER criticize their advertisers. They will never run stories about how their own workers are not being paid enough compared to their own corporate CEOs. They just will never do it.

As much as I don't like Bill Cooper he was right about "Freedom". Freedom of the press to anyone who owns one. If you don't like what the media is saying then buy it and control it as he says in this video:

Bill Cooper, you don't like the media then buy it and then you can say what you want

Republicans have all the money. It just is not logical to claim the media is leftist because that would imply people bent on sharing the wealth own the media which is unlikely. People who believe in exploitation of workers are the only ones with enough capital to be able to buy and control the media.

This whole thing about the "left-wing media" is just BS misdirection while the people in power screw the American people with a big fat giant rod.



Yes you are correct. Im in the UK and our 'impartial' BBC is completely controlled by the right.

Even the Guardian which used to be pretty left wing has succumbed to the establishment right.

Just curious, is there EVER a post you do, or a thread you make where you ACTUALLY do your research?

Very rarely have i seen someone post on ATS who is so consistently and epically wrong, on just about everything they write.

What I find especially interesting is the OP and the largest defender of the OP only made one post.

If this was so important to them why did they not come back?

Are they the same person?

Maybe they just believe they are right and we are all not worth talking to?

I really don't get it.

You sir are INSANE... MSNBC and CNN among many other "left-wing media" protect left-wingers and "progressive rinos" meanwhile bashing people like POTUS Trump. They ran for almost 3 years FAKE NEWS 24/7 claiming how POTUS Trump is a puppet of Putin even when there was evidence that it was all a hoax...

Personally I feel the likes off CNN BBC are globalist

I don’t consider them left or right, they’re the ones manipulating the right and left to hate and attack each other

I feel the MSM is very much engineering a situation similar, not the same, but similar to 1938

I don’t believe they’re on anybody’s side other than their own, but play a left wing position to counter balance the right wing

It’s worrying tbh, this whole thing right across the western world is being engineered by the elites, the Bilderberg the NWO the party of Davos, call them what you will but I see them behind every major chess move, perhaps for the past 200 years

Wow even I don't blame you for leaving the thread after saying that. I picture you laughing, even as you typed it. No way do you believe they lean heavily to the truth. Tell me you don't believe that. This is one of the funniest post you have ever made. Top five for sure, and that's saying something.
