Because I'm a librarian & skilled with the Internet, this election has disillusioned me with trusting network news like CNN, MSNBC & even PBS. They obviously have their own agenda & it doesn't really match what is happening out there. Have you noticed this and are you losing faith in the news?
sort by best latest
What did you think the TEA party movement was all about? too bad the progressive left did not join in. Why did you think the TEA party was targeted by the IRS and demonized by the press...?
the Tea party was largely astro-turfing sorry. Most of the tea party darlings that did end up getting elected have done even more damage and helped funnel even more money to the special interests. The intent may have been good, but it was hijacked
Your wrong. TEA party candidates who went to Washington were the one's trying to change the status quo. They were demonized both from the left and the right. look it up...The establishment wanted nothing to do with TEA party...Cut spending and waste.
Sam Brownback in Kansas, craptastic results there, pledged 100k new jobs, got 700 and income growth dropped dramatically. Rick Snyder - another tea party darling and governor of Michigan - Flint crisis no more needs to be said. Tea party is corrupt
Sorry but you are asking for miracles. Under the Obama economy, it was just reported only 38K new jobs created in May. It will take a new Adminstration one that is Conservative to fix all the ills... And it will take time.
Which news source do you rely on?
I thought it was pretty clear that I rely on ALL of them! If I hear a story on any news channel, and it affects me, I will do research to make sure I get the truth first before believing it. I don't repeat wild accusations, or lies.
I find the international news like The Guardian gives a different angle at times. Al Jazeera America (which has closed) used to give a balanced view also.
Balnced? Or anti American? The Guardian and Al jazera are propaganda sites against American interests. I do check in on them occasionally just to see what they are up to. Buyer beware when it comes to online news media...
Exactly how I'm seeing it too. Very sad situation and harmful to having a fair election.
I should add that the first round of FCC deregulation happened in 1996.
The media is not just ignorant. They are actively promoting a liberal progressive agenda and they will use their position to influence the outcome. Remember Candy Crowly at the last Obama Romney debate in 2012?
Checkout the Drudgereport, it links to all news sources. It is the most extensive listing on news, opinion and breaking news...
Also not healthy is the biased "news" presented by Fox. This is what has given rise to Trump.
The rise of Trump is due to what's been going on in this country for the last 8 years under Obama and the complicit GOP leaders. FOX has nothing to do with it except giving Trump a forum just like all other news outlets...
Very true except this election cycle is very different. Nothing the media does seems to work one way or another. The people are fed up and they are angry at Washington and they want an outsider even when he is imperfect. The media is going crazy.
Well, we know that Fox was a propaganda tool for the conservatives and I don't even consider it news. It seems the mainstream media such as MSNBC and CNN is heavily invested in maintaining the status quo which is why they're so biased anti-Bernie.
So ALL cable news is Opinions, and Spinions, and burns your eyes like Onions, and smells like dead grunions.
Who has heard about the latest information released by the IRS under court order? They have admitted that that over 400 conservative organizations were targeted for extra scrutiny...
A drum roll please...
The answer is Fox news.
