    do you really expect Liberal media to cover the truth and report accurately on Democrats, come on don't be so gullible.

    and before you want to come back about right media and how they want to cover Republicans, no ****. I wouldn't expect the complete truth on everything from right media over Republicans. that is why I've said all media is biased. but I'm not the one wanting to ignore certain media entirely.

    CNN has proven they are trash, they literally had to settle a lawsuit with a child they attacked because he was wearing a MAGA hat. but I'm still not going to ignore everything from CNN because of that.
    I am not saying they are trash because they are biased to the right, I am saying they are trash because the do not report accurately.

    “mixed factual reporting due to numerous failed fact checks”

    Simply put, you cannot trust they are telling you the truth. There is plenty of media on the left that is trash, and I avoid that as well.

    You are literally saying you still watch trash like CNN even though you know it’s trash. I am not the problem here, you are. Stop ingesting trash.

    And if Special really wants to start talking about bias from left or right media sources, Fox News and other conservative media continually downplayed the coronavirus to the point that during a poll conducted March 11-13, there were stark differences in the belief of the severity of the problem:

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-onl...111609355.html

    80% of Democrats stated the worst was yet to come while only 40% of Republicans did. Shortly after that, the President declared a national emergency.

    The conservative messaging influenced Republicans to believe a clear falsity.


    Something tells me we won't see any posts from Special about that though.

    The problem, in special’s case, Is he is trying to stay informed specifically on American news. He’s right when he says all news is trash because all news is opinionated which means, all news can be taken as false and can easily be proven as such. It’s up to the “fact checkers” to check into it. And then, the fact checkers are biased as well. Watch press conferences regarding whatever topic you’re into. The news are just idiots with opinions.

    I read an article yesterday about how Limbaugh has changed tunes. He blamed the Democrats panic to the virus for why he and other conservative outlets played this off as a hoax.

    Essentially we can't listen to science, can only oppose what the other side is putting out there, even when it's right there in your face.

    Once again an influential person is dodging responsibility for their actions by blaming the opposition. He had excess to the same medical studies as everyone else.

    if we stopped all media that wasn't completely accurate then there would be no media at all. that's just stupid.

    I've never said any media is completely accurate, which is exactly why I've said I judge based on the content of the story/article/news and not the source in general.

    Daily Caller covering CNN contradicting themselves. it's unlikely that you're going to get this from the Liberal media calling out themselves.

    https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/18/c...rus-test-kits/

    CNN appeared to contradict its own fact check regarding allegations that America rejected the World Health Organization’s (WHO) offer to provide test kits.

    The publication wrote about former Vice President Joe Biden’s claim during the Democratic debate March 15 that the U.S. chose not to accept testing kits for the virus from WHO. That article, part of a March 15 round-up about the debate, wrote that “Biden is correct.”

    “The US, along with other countries, chose not to take test kits from WHO — and instead decided to make their own,” according to that article.

    A second article published March 18 by the publication disputed CNN’s own fact check. This article is headlined “WHO and CDC never discussed providing international test kits to the US, global health agency says.”

    “No discussions occurred between WHO and the CDC about providing tests to the United States, WHO spokesperson Tarik Jasarevic told CNN on Tuesday, and WHO did not offer coronavirus tests to the CDC,” that article wrote.


    completely ignoring any media/source entirely is just flawed.

    Free markets are great until big business wants a bailout!

    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    apparently you also like to discriminate certain media.

    God forbid there is any media slanted right.

    who do you think is going to call out the ******** from the left media, certainly not themselves.

    It's not only that they are inaccurate, it's how frequently they are. They are more inaccurate than most other media, hence why they're garbage.

    You are saying because all media is sometimes not accurate, the amount they are not accurate shouldn't matter. That is stupid.

    That is like saying because nobody got a 100 on a math test, everyone should get the same grade no matter if someone got 99 and someone else got 60 because after all, neither was completely accurate.

    That is stupid.
