    I believe our country is in a political mess in part because of certain cable "news" channels that pander to people's political biases.

    Yes, MSNBC does it. But Fox created the concept.

      I tend to think you're right - Fox was the first to put money over honesty and turn to near 100% spin on anything remotely political.  But it sure didn't take the others long to catch on and jump on the $$ wagon!

        I agree that MSNBC and CNN have learned bias, point of view or whatever you want to call it is a strategy that makes money for cable news networks.

      "Peters cited the Fox News opinion hosts' relentless attacks on the FBI, Justice Department, intelligence agencies, and other branches of government. He said he believed Fox News was knowingly causing harm to the country in exchange for profit."

      This is why many (three-quarters, according to a recent poll) conservatives believe the FBI is full of liberals out to get Trump. It would be laughable if it weren't so scary that so many people willingly swallow such nasty swill.

        Mueller was well-known as a Republican when he was FBI director.

        Then suddenly overnight he became a liberal when he was appointed to investigate Trump.

      It is scary that people believe them.  I use to watch Jeanine Pirro on small claims type cases.  She didn't act like the lunatic that she is.  Shepard Smith has principles.  Maybe he will also leave.

      I follow some conservative commentators on Twitter that are factual in communication.  Bill Kristol and Tara Setamayer are two of my favorites.

      CNN?  You base an opinion about pandering to people's political views citing an article from CNN? An organization that used to take pride in being referred to as the "Clinton News Network."  To be kind this is one of the most political biased news organization in existence.  How many fake stories do they have to retract because biased reporting?  Not as many as they should have.  The hypocrisy here is unbelievable at times.

        Whataboutism. The post is about a Fox News military analyst accusing the network of propaganda.

        The CNN article is one of many all over the Internet. The analyst made the attack on Fox. CNN simply reported it.

        If it makes you feel any better, here is the same report from the highly conservative Chicago Tribune:

        I think the problem with Fox is not "reporting things favorable to" the right.  The problem is the "hell, fire and brimstone" way they condemn people based on made up conspiracies.  These are intelligent people.  All of us learned deductive and inductive reasoning in school.  The Fox commentators through all of that out the window and MAKE UP stuff.

    All the major news outlets need to be examined very skeptically as they all have their biases. Each tries to manipulate the minds of the American people in their own way.

He's undermining our healthcare system, obstructing justice, abusing his power, abused women, degraded our wartime POWs, disrespected gold star families, conspired to undermine democracy, cowers to Vladimir Putin and the list goes on, and now even animals are not safe from his insanity.

            Why isn't Mr. Trump protecting the United States and why on God's good Earth is he STILL in our white house??

            But don't take my word for it, here's what 4 star general Barry McCaffrey said about a week ago. If this doesn't chill you to the bone I don't know what will

            "Reluctantly I have concluded that President Trump is a serious threat to US national security. He is refusing to protect vital US interests from active Russian attacks. It is apparent that he is for some unknown reason under the sway of Mr Putin."

                Well, I stand by my previous comment despite your misinterpretation. We are in an emergency situation with this white house impostor and the sooner he's indicted the better for the world.

                I'm not sure what it will;l take for some to realize the evil he represents, but sooner or later it dawns on them as they try to figure out what they did to end up trapped in eternity with Lucifer.

                So no comment on Mr. Trump's reversal of animal cruelty laws and is it really a surprise at this point? You'll never see that disturbing news on fox fake channel. I mean really, he could care less about human cruelty as he undermines healthcare and abuses women so I'd assume animal cruelty isn't worth a second of worry right? But in reality, only the sickest of the sick perform unconscionable acts like rescinding laws to protect defenseless animals.

                Experts will tell you when a child is cruel to animals it can be a sign of  future serious problems and even criminal acts including potentially murder.

                    Well wilderness, still no response to Trump's animal cruelty policies right? And by the way, the overwhelming populous hates Trump for very good reasons like his undermining of America, degradation of our POWs and women etc etc and it's not only yours truly who can clearly recognize a mentally ill elderly man when he sees one, the experts understand he's a clear and present danger as well.

                    I suspect you'll never see this disturbing Earth shattering report on fox fake channel.

                    "Now, some psychiatrists and other mental-health professionals are shedding long-held norms to argue that Trump’s condition presents risks to the nation and the world. “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump” features more than two dozen essays breaking down the president’s perceived traits, which the contributors find consistent with symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder, sociopathy and other maladies. “Collectively with our coauthors, we warn that anyone as mentally unstable as Mr. Trump simply should not be entrusted with the life-and-death powers of the presidency,” Judith Lewis Herman of Harvard Medical School and Bandy X. Lee of the Yale School of Medicine write in the book’s prologue."

    All caps is annoying and indicates laziness to me so I don’t bother reading whatever that person is writing. I just skip to the next post.

    Wilderness, I don’t know how you could expect any media outlet to report ‘the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.’  Journalists aren’t psychic and can’t read people’s minds. If they are honestly quoting someone, that’s good enough for me. I don’t expect the journo to know if the person they’re quoting is lying or not.

    For instance,  Cardinal George Pell is back in Australia from the Vatican facing charges related to child sex abuse. Any media outlet reporting the story can tell ‘the truth’ about what both sides are claiming ... but obviously either Cardinal Pell or his alleged victims are lying.

    So in truthfully reporting the case, there’s going to be things said that are not ‘the whole truth’ because at least one individual will eventually be judged as having lied. That’s just one of millions of examples where I can see your expectations are way too high. Easy to say it, but not so easy to deliver it.

    1. wilderness profile image97
      wildernessposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      I agree that a journalist often cannot know for sure whether a source is lying.  But they CAN make an honest effort to find out - they can verify the story with a second source, they can find evidence supporting it, etc., and they aren't doing so.  If the story is sensational, if it is along their political lines...it gets published. 

      Media has become little better than the web in that regard; if you see it, if you like it, if it will raise hackles then repeat it!  And that's not journalism; it is rabble rousing, gossiping  and rumor mongering.  I demand better of my news sources - if that's all I want there is plenty of it to be found on the computer screen (or over the backyard fence, for that matter).

        Happy to say that Australian media is still held accountable. Our investigative journalists have to satisfy network lawyers they could win a defamation  case before controversial stories are aired. Media outlets that fail to uphold standards end up in court and prosecuted. Rebel Wilson received a big payout from a magazine that didn’t cross check a story about her relatively recently. We get US stations on Foxtel over here but I don’t bother watching them.

      Morning ahorseback. Children are quite capable of independent thought and If you consider the truth to be a bias to the left then yes, you are correct in your assessment. Maybe that's why Fox is considered non-factual in nature. Mr.soon to be gone Trump is constantly blabbering about fake news which in and of itself are just more lies piled on top of his obvious serious mental problems.

      He insisted Rex Tillerson was not leaving as reported by CNN and he called it fake news yet Tillerson is leaving so I guess it was very accurate inside reporting not fake news at all, the same with McMasters and he's leaving as well and the list of Trump's blatant lies and false fake news accusations is almost endless, just one reason why I'm sure his attorney Dowd hit the road, not to mention his reported pardon suggestions to Flynn and Manifort which in this context is just another count of obstruction of justice.

      Trump is more radioactive than J. Robert Oppenheimer's atomic bomb laboratory which is why all reputable lawyers will stay at least 100 miles away from this Russian Sympathizing Puppet.

        Trump is still in office because biased slander from the news media does not and as of yet cannot impeach , in spite of the fact so many on the left believe it . Trump was elected because a majority of centrist  voters of both parties  wanted nothing but to clean up the two party swamp that IS the government in America today .   Trump also fights a high tide made up of establishment democrats , do nothing republicans and  so  biased a news media as to alter the very reality of the ongoing and very fluid politics  in America today . Trump's popularity % puts him about equal with Obama's, That cannot be denied.

    Yet the left having miserably failed to obstruct Trumps first year with world famous claims , is now claiming one phony mini-conspiracy after another in an attempt to hang on in the final death throw's of Fake news .

          Soon to be gone Trump just recently lost about 20% in a republican ruby red district special election in PA and you expect us to believe his approval rating is at 45%? lol More power to ya my friend.

          It doesn't matter much anyway it will all be moot soon, if you've been following the Trump Campaign Russian Criminal  Investigation, Spanky's gonna need a divine miracle to escape prison or even worse and considering he's probably a demon of hell, a miracle is obviously out of the question for him.

          Stack Stormy and everything else on top of that and what do you get? Trump Chump.

    No surprise even more sponsors are dumping Fox Propaganda Channel because their retarded agents are attacking young patriotic Americans like David Hogg. We understand it's a radically dangerous right wing nut job network, but which mindless executive over there even gave serious consideration to give this hateful ugly Hitler saluter a television show to begin with and why is he she still employed?

    Nazi Salutes? in America? That's what it looks like to many. How crazy, disrespectful to our United States Military and anti-American is this shameful display of retardation?

    Of all the desperation in the many ,many charges leveled to date , You've got zippo for proof . Really just  admit it . All your party  and Trump Deranged buddies have leveled for charges to date ; all that have been cleared , dropped  reconfigured to new names or repainted to new psychedelic colors ; all have turned into a big zippo !

    Even those liberals with "fairly "level heads are seeing that all the Trump obstruction  been for naught , Newsflash ;Your educators lied to you , your professors lied to you ,your parents lied to you and  your newly formed and twisted media lied to you.  It must be difficult coming to a full realization that there are at least seven more years of this staring you in the face .

      I tend to read to form an opinion rather than to read to affirm one. I need to for my writing projects.( and newspapers tend to be better sources anyway). Fake news as the one I've mentioned generally cater to people's confirmation bias and that's why they're generally useless.

          That's precious, a Trump voter is trying to school everyone on fake news? Well, if not for lies, deception, propaganda, untruths, phony diatribes and mindless vicious attacks on Americans, our Military, our POWs, Our Gold Star Families and just about every other patriotic individual and institution, Fox fake anchors and Spanky Trump would have no valid reason to open their mouths.

          How does everyone like liar Trump's recklessly insane trade war with China so far? Fox backed it too. Nothing like taking a sledge hammer to our once rock solid economy that President Obama built. Is this insanity designed to appease Vladimir Putin? But don't worry, Trump says trade wars are easy to win and it's good for you, yup just like dropping a bowling ball on your head.

          Here's the documentation: This excludes the avalanche of lies Trump has spewed while campaigning pre-election day: There's absolutely something very wrong upstairs with this sick elderly man as many experts attest to and this danger to society may even have a nuke button: Who's fake? Read this shocking report: You won't find these facts at fox.

          https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fac … 52b1ca2121

          And watch this shocking video: Why does a right wing Fox nut case like bitter angry Laura Ingraham feel comfortable enough in the United States of America to mimic a nazi salute? Then she mocks our American youth who are making us safer with each passing day? maybe our children are just not pure enough for her taste?

          Who at fox hired this disgrace?

    I'm not even sure what you mean ahorseback, but back on topic. No thoughts on how a decision maker at fox fake propaganda outlet would even think of giving this hate filled fool a television show? Perhaps the fox decision maker thought this kind of nazi propaganda that our relatives died for to defeat in the 1940's, might appeal to their delusional white nationalist audience? Yeah, build that wall !!

    Sure looks like a nazi salute to me and others and this disturbing display of anti-Americanism actually happened on national television in the United States not too long ago and it continues in Our White House to this very day: That's how twisted and evil fox and the presidency has become over the last year:

      Hey, Jake, I'm going to cry foul on the photo, as I don't think it's clear that Ingraham was doing a Nazi salute and I don't like it when either side takes a visual snippet out of context to imply nefarious intent that is not clearly present.

      That said, it couldn't happen to a nastier person than Laura Ingraham. She has no problem lying about and demeaning innocent people so, believe me, it took a lot of effort on my part to call this out. big_smile

        Well PrettyPanther, here's the vid to back up the still imagei hich clearly illustrates what many believe is a nazi salute and I don't think there's a debate about her fox audience which is comprised primarily of nazi white nationalist who are drooling for a wall to keep brown people out of the United States which was actually built by humans of color.

        Pretty clear what this atrocious fool's intent is and it takes a lot of nerve to do this in the United States of America when our relatives died to repel this hateful evil sentiment:

            Actually ahorseback, fostering an evil white nationalist hatred that my relatives died to prevent in the 1940's as fox fake channel and their surrogates like Laura Ingraham and Sean Hammity spew nightly, is really no laughing matter. They spew it in the very same country that crushed it decades ago, the United States of America.

            From your lack of compassion, we'd have to assume none of your relatives where ever they came from were involved in WW2. If they were, you might think differently and switch over to the left side, the side that resists and opposes these parasites.

            Yeah, build that wall baby and stop that big bad Mexican invasion !!

            Are you really surprised sponsors are dumping the fox propaganda outlet in droves?

            Looks kind of archaic and barbaric now in the year 2018 doesn't it? But Spanky Trump is blowing a few gaskets to get it built before he's imprisoned.

              Oh Jake ,where do I begin .....This is going to be fun .... First ,  In WWII my Father was an U.S. army infantryman in the invasion of the beaches of Normandy all the way to and including the war "mop up and recovery reparations" for almost a year after Germany surrendered . Second , he was directly involved in the liberation with Pattons 3rd army  of two different concentration camps , Third , he was wounded by shrapnel , bayonet  and machine gun fire three separate  times gaining him 2 purple hearts and a silver star , fourth , he fought and remained in service all through the "Battle of the Bulge " , something I'm sure most of us couldn't handle and Fifth ,  he lived a long life with the nightmares of witnessing the absolute horrors of the "Nazis "party and the third Reich , he was left standing at the end across the  Elbe River from the Russian army awaiting Patton's orders as to whether he was now going to cross the river and fight the Russian army ,...........so , I don't think I need your Nazi lecture .

              Guess what ?  Laura Ingram doesn't resemble anything in the least  to do with Nazi Germany and  it's rather immature to suggest that ! But if the shoe fits , wear it .

                If all that's true horseback, it would be impossible for you to defend white nationalist hater Laura Ingraham, Sean Hammity and fox propaganda channel as you apparently do.

                A so called network like failing fox that fosters hate, bigotry and Mexican paranoia and caters to nazi white nationalists as Spanky Trump does, certainly does not have the best interests of ww2 vets or the military in mind.
