He said, and I quote, "Liberal mainstream media," unquote. There is no "Liberal mainstream media". That is a lie. That is propaganda. That is Righty disinformation.
I disagree. MSNBC, NBC, CNN, are IMO most definitely Liberal leaning PR machines. Just as FOX news is most definitely Right, or Conservative leaning PR machine. Chris Matthews, Rachael Maddow, Chris Hayes, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson...all of those people aren't "Reporters" or "Journalists". ALL of them put their own personal spin on the stories they cover. The age of actual unbiased reporting is dead and buried.
I'll point it out again, for those that somehow missed it: BOTH sides of the freaking aisle are Liberal, by definition.
Perhaps strictly speaking, going strickly by dictionary definitions. But society doesn't go by that. For quite awhile now the term Liberal has been used to "label" or "describe" those on the left.
Using the term "Liberal mainstream media" is on a par with calling non-whites niggers. It's a derogatory term that has no meaning beyond being a derogatory term. Capiche?
I couldn't disagree more with this comment. The two are no where NEAR the same thing.
The thing about bigots and their terminology is that you can listen to them forever and never learn anything meaningful about the subject of their bigotry. Like bigots who don't know any people of colour personally, LoTS obviously doesn't know anyone working in the media industry.
People working in the media industry are trained, and train themselves, to not have a bias of any kind, because bias interferes with the news-gathering and reporting process. They are pretty damned impartial, and pride themselves on the fact.
I don't know what news programs you're watching, but ALL of them are biased. As I pointed out earlier in this post, the age of unbiased reporting, and reporters, is dead and buried.
The media over-all are not Left-leaning. It only appears to Righties to be that way because they're idiots, and when idiots aren't having their own idiot way, they lash out, and harangue those that point out their idiocy. So in their tiny, wee, pea-brains, the media become Left-leaning because the media aren't siding with themselves- the idiots and morons in society.
And again with name calling for those who don't agree with your position. If they don't agree with your position they are idiots???
