    Bias about news stories or political events is one thing.

    Totally fabricating fakes news with the single goal of destroying a duly elected sitting American President is a whole other matter.
    Both are overtly biased, and I don't know why anyone would watch either of them. Furthermore, I'm not interested in your highly skewed view, as Fox promulgates fake news as well, but you push that like a good little soldier (Seth Rich).

    Your slip is showing.

    Apparently you are incapable of discerning the difference between biased and fake news.

    But, keep this in mind.

    Millions of Americans do know the difference as evidenced by Trump's victory.

    Napolitano=Trump used him as his source that Obama used British to taping his phone=FOX news said at the time they did not stand behind Napolitanos' claim (no credible source, he was repeating an unfounded rumor which in turn Trump believed).
    Seth Rich death linked to DNC=of course its false even the reporter that is quoted in the original newspaper piece says it was BS as the "source was backing away from it too "Wheeler"

    Not at all. I'm very good at it being a textual analyst. I just don't share your confirmation bias and petty hatreds.

    But, keep this in mind.

    LOLOL The inbreds line up to vote for a fool and suddenly they are media experts. You crack me up.

    Then why did he stop reporting about it?

    Yes, by all means. What's important here is to brainlessly pick a side and sling mud.

    Jesus.

    Nah. I trust capitalism. If there was a subject that would get them higher ratings, allowing them to charge more for commercials, they'd broadcast it. This is for-profit "news" at its "best".

    Talking to a woman yesterday..she is on her Smart Phone constantly.

    She had just heard about JD Vance and his book," Hillbilly Elogy." She was so impressed that this was something new.

    I told her my kids gave me the book for Christmas. She was amazed because she just heard about it on Hannity.

    She wanted to know how I heard of him. I told her he was all over CNN and MSNBC before that. Only watching Fox,news this was new.

    I rest my case.
    Thanks from OHjulie

    Capitalism works when competing ideas and methods and products are available and the losers have to adapt to the winners.

    Capitalism fails when there is no competitor. When one idea, method, product has a monopoly and there is no other choice for consumers.

    In my opinion, Americans could function if Fox was serving red pablum and MSNBC was serving blue pablum and CNN was telling the news.

    If CNN is the political version of Entertainment Tonight. That leaves pablum, pablum or pablum.
