    The Daily Mail walks the line of pure tabloid. They note their readers most popular scapegoats and just hammer hammer hammer away at them.

    Their targets are Muslims, immigrants, teenagers, single moms, welfare recipients, and the usual tabloid celebrities.

    So let’s say London had 17 traffic accidents in one day, all about the same level of damage and injury. The Daily Mail would decide to look for one caused by one of their target groups. “Hmm... no Muslims.... no Polish.... oh... here’s one. This one was caused by a teenaged mom on welfare.”

    That days headline. “Deadbeat teen mom causes traffic accident”

    No mention of the other 16 accidents.

    That’s The Daily Mail.

    A looooooot of NPR, followed by BBC, mostly in the car on XM. And dozens of sources not listed on there which are basically news aggregators.

    That's a pretty glaring omission. Are we just supposed to take their word for it?

    Yeah, don't think so

    More like you have extreme bias.
    I can recognize partisan propaganda with no special "journalism" training whatsoever. And so can most honest people.

    As CNN has taught us, there’s no place on TV for real news. When I was a teen CNN would have been alone at the top of that chart. Now they’re damn lucky to be straddling the yellow box.
    I'm partial to The Sun. And proud as punch that it's Canadian.

    A growing number of Canadians are realizing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s priorities are increasingly disconnected from reality and the interests of voters.
    That’s been helped along by a series of recent bungles, starting with his India trip fiasco.

    I think it's pretty evident to anyone who reads news on a regular basis.

    It' not the hard to spot bias.
