Azor.... I knew what you meant but very much disagree with you. Having dialogue is good
What is your opinion of the news media?
DJS: Please temper your language and insults or you will be prevented from sharing your "wisdom" on how wonderfully tolerant people such as yourself are.
Minimus dialogue is good i agree. This BS about fake news isn't.
He has a point to consider when news agencies everywhere are stating that Trump committed terrible at sexual acts in Russia in order to create a Russian connection and dehumanize Trump . This news alert that was put out for everyone to see was not good news at all in fact it was fake news. Such fake news has to be exposed.
Just my 2c:
I think a bit part of the problem is that the question is framed as "is the news media truthful, yes or no".
In reality, the questions we should ask are
- how often is the news media false
- how biased is the news media in its choice of stories (and more importantly, what do we mean by bias)
- what does the news media do when it is found to be false?
- how consistent is a news media (i.e. does it call out the same behavior from both sides)?
I simply can't see how anyone can claim with a straight face that e.g. Breitbart does better than the CNN or nytimes on these counts.
That's your evidence minimus. Provide one credible news outlet that presented that claim as fact.
At least Breitbart can give some people a clue as to why CNN and other news networks can be so biased in their reporting; when some of the major media outlets have blood relatives of some in the white house administrations in key positions in big media there is a big conflict of interest. This article is from 2013.
Dear god, mini me, he came across as a complete, unhinged idiot.
And that's putting it kindly
Buzzfeed put the story out and nearly every news outlet covered the fake news. Even the idiots know that one
If BuzzFeed put a story out about Obama being gay like some people have suggested about his past life, and it was never corroborated, I would expect that any reputable newspaper or agency would not print garbage
