Full title is : NBC's Lester Holt says we don’t need to hear both sides to define truth: ‘Fairness is overrated’


"I think it’s become clear that fairness is overrated ... the idea that we should always give two sides equal weight and merit does not reflect the world we find ourselves in," Holt said on Tuesday night while accepting an award at the 45th Murrow Symposium.




"That the sun sets in the west is a fact. Any contrary view does not deserve our time or attention," Holt continued. "Decisions to not give unsupported arguments equal time are not a dereliction of journalistic responsibility or some kind of agenda, in fact, it’s just the opposite."




"In a better world in which the mainstream major media had a history of fairness and non-partisanship, Holt's point that journalism inherently involves filtering information might make sense. This is not such a better world, this is a world in which the mainstream major media wears its partisanship on its sleeve, manipulating the news cycle to the advantage of Democrats," Jacobson told Fox News. "In the real world, Holt's advice simply justifies media political bias."



There it is folks. Straight from the horses mouth. You Will Be Told What We Want You To Know. THE TRUTH Is What WE Say It Is.
IF YOU HAVE A DIFFERENT OPINION WE WON'T LISTEN.

Does it get any clearer that MSM is feeding you lies to manipulate you ?

That whole speech can be summed up with “I am right because i am right, screw you”

This dude got papal infallibility now? Egotistical jerk.

A nation that ignores the minority opinion ends up bleeding.

Lester Holt got mad when Trump told him America is guilty of state crimes against humanity.

Holt is another of Satans minions.

MSM laziness and bias has reached critical mass.
They don't even want to bother to pretend they're unbiased now.

He is a ‘journalist’.

Being an idiot is part of the job description these days.

I had to stop watching Lester and NBC because they lied so much. I just couldn't take any more lies. I starred every single commenter on here and the OP as well. I didn't even have to worry that I might give a Lefty a star by accident because they don't seem to be around much anymore. I wonder where they went? Enjoying the paradise they voted for and got? I dunno.

The sun sets in the north west in the summer here, and in the southwest in the winter.....we live at about the same kind of area as New York is in.....The sun does not set in the west hardly at all, but he will not repeat the whole and relevant truth.

I don’t like how Lesters mouth moves when he talks.

I hope Lester accidentally speaks out of line and his masters send him to camp for some 're-education". He might just gain a new appreciation for fairness.

It's been probably 30 years since the main stream news presented both sides or gave a halfway decent unbiased broadcast.
