    Good question. Let me know if you're able to find an answer lol. I practically avoid watching the news for this very reason.

    I watch Fox and MSNBC on account partisan politics has BS news everywhere.

    If I'm really looking for info about a story I find interesting try to get both sides and look for hard data. That stuff is hard to come by these days.

    I watch very little TV news. I'll read local papers for local news, but I know they get it wrong on occasion, too.

    With news on the new, you can always look for several sources if you want to verify the story.


    I belabor the obvious because that's what its there for. If I belabor the subtle, it leaves people slack jawed and drooling!!

    It's almost necessary if you want a truly unbiased angle of a big news story. You can read something from three different outlets and get three different perspectives on an event depending on which way the outlet leans.

    Default Media

    There is no unbiased news outlets. that said the AP http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/fronts/...P&SECTION=HOME
    Reuters http://www.reuters.com/news
    are the ones.

    Most of you who were smart enough to vote for Trump most likely can smell shit in front of you my guess.
    on the other hand if you think CNN and the other MSM is ok honest and real... fuck I can't help you.... but if you can't stand to watch Fox you are Fucked. yep Fox is pretty right but it is honest just because they have honest people working there plus they would not like doing retractions.

    This is relatively accurate. That said, relying on a single source is bad. Take in as much as you can from the decent sources here (near the top and middle, while avoiding the bottom and edges), spend more time with actual journalism and less with commentary (i.e. more Shepard Smith and less Rush Limbaugh), and decide from there.

    That map will not get you to the church on time. lol

    Many of Those in the middle have been exposed to be nothing more than voices on the left the past 9 months. if they were anything else there would have been mass firings after the election. that did not happen

    So I take it the map is 2 years old or made up by a Democrat ..........as they know no better. the telling part is the Wash Post & NY Times in that middle. a joke

    That graphic is one of the biggest jokes I have seen in years. Sad what our fellow "patriots" have been diminished to. Journalism is dead.

    Pretty much the exact response I expected.

    If the Breitbarts, RedStates, and Infowars of the world are considered to be "patriots," then the state of this country is far more fucked than I imagined.

    Of course it was. You've been indoctrinated sir. And if you honestly believe those in the middle of that graphic are hard, fact driven, journalists ...I feel sad for you.

    Nobody said a word about Infowars or Breitbarts, except for you. Indoctrinated talking points. Good luck to you, I think you're going to need it.

    paranoia ?

    maybe the wrong word you used ?
    not that I'm the grammar police.

    What BPP and I were trying to point out to you are just balls & strikes as far as media goes.
    think of a weather man who says it sunny and nice outside but fails to tell you it's also only 20 degrees.

    Just Read/listen to both or more sides of a issue over time, hopefully one gets a better understanding. if you don't you can end up like a child growing up in a Taliban tribe only knowing what the leader tells. do any of us hate that child ? no ... but he/she hates us as he/she is told to.

    This thread has gone eerily silent....the more and more I take notice to the bias the media has the more disheartened I become with the whole structure we have become accustomed to for our daily news.

    Its literally the worst ive ever seen it. Journalist are no longer reporting news, there telling you how they feel. That is not news.

    Soo much butt hurt that the agenda now is to crush the POTUS at any cost. Truly sad.
    just beat it

    Look at it this way Hammer
    most of your life the MSM has been doing the same thing but kinda hiding it. now at least you are not being tricked at all.
    Just hope no flaming liberal ever buys Fox news. because if they do there will be NO other side of the story.

    Yeah, got some real problems with ToastedPagel's Liberal/Conservative News chart, but will say that aside from a few obvious egregious errors, and the whole middle section of it, it has a lot correct too. I will say it SEEMED far more accurate 3 years ago before Donald Trump and the 2 YR 2016 Election Cycle exposed the American MSM. With the great help of Russia's WikiLeaks, let us never forget! (It does seem WikiLeaks could be a Russian shill, but it only releases TRUE documents, so how much can anyone complain?)

    About Pagel's News Chart, the most disturbing thing to me is The Economist being "skewed Conservative".... that couldn't be more false.
    And it seems especially misleading to me.


    Breitbart is very fact-driven, often correct in its assertions, it's just the Left absolutely hates the facts Breitbart brings forth. But it is heavily agenda news, and can be construed to be creating race strife, pandering to whites. I wish Breitbart would not do that and play a critical role alongside Fox.... they need to realize in todays America, one of Conservatisms pinnacle targets should be helping the diverse cultures of America SEE HOW Conservativism is by far the best path ahead for a strong and stable America. We need to ADMIT that America is NOT that right now. It is severely divided; hence, it is neither strong, as a concept, nor stable in it's future. It's current state & degree of malfunction is not one that can or will endure. And Conservative PRINCIPLES are what's sorely needed to be embraced to correct and guide America's path.
