    And that should not be its mission. I agree. But do you think all those opinion shows on Fox which repeat the same sermons all day long fit the definition of News?

    Preaching to the choir should not be the mission of any news channel regardless of political leanings.

    The club I work out all has lots of TVs for the workout cycles and elliptical machines.

    10 years ago CNN and Fox used to have a news crawl at the bottom. Now it displays a 5 word summary of what the talking heads are jawing about. I guess we are just too stupid to absorb a crawl of information. At least ESPN provides the scores. That's more news than I am getting from the news channel static crawl.

    This is some seriously bad idiocy.

    Talking about the same time crap they talk about on all the opinion shows. There are exceptions. Every news channel does SOME hard news. And then they make it Olds in a day or so once they've milked the life out of it.

    All over #fakenews reporting.


    Do yourselves a favor and just look at the issue a little and you'll see a clear way the media creates a narrative and convinces you it's true.
    39 U.S. dog bite-related fatalities occurred in 2017. Despite being regulated in Military Housing areas and over 900 U.S. cities, pit bulls contributed to 74% (29) of these deaths. Pit bulls make up about 6.5% of the total U.S. dog population
    There is nothing fake about it. Pit bulls make up only 6.5% of the dogs in this country yet they were responsible for 74% of deaths from dogs?

    You think the other channels never have conservatives on? Have you ever watched those channels? It doesn't sound like you have.

    Do you know what showed you both sides of an issue? The Fairness Doctrine. Growing up, I always heard both sides. it was required by law. Now, people like you live in an echo chamber and really have no idea what liberals say or want. You only know what Fox News and talk radio tells you liberals say or want. You never actually listen to and try to understand liberals.

    With that premise in mind, Iím going to assume that you believe Mueller is being smeared right fucking now by the Trump Cultist in Congress and Fox News?

    See, now, be schooled. What you are demonstrating is the power of the media to dupe the gullible.


    Peer reviewed study:
    https://www.sciencedirect.com/scienc...9002331500310X


    Animal shelter staff and veterinarians are frequently expected to guess the breed of dogs based on appearance alone.


    Even when observing the same dogs at the same time, shelter staff had only moderate agreement with breed designations.


    One in five dogs genetically identified with pit bull heritage breeds were missed by all shelter staff.


    One in three dogs lacking DNA for pit bull heritage breeds were labeled pit bull-type dogs by at least one staff member.


    Lack of consistency among shelter staff indicates that visual identification of pit bull-type dogs is unreliable.




    So if you can't even identify a pitbull 50% of the time, what does that say about your view of pitbulls sold to you by a lying media.





    Also, note. when a dog bites someone, the headline will read "dog bites boy". if it's anything that can be called a "pitbull", headline will be "Pitbull viciously mauls boy". You never read, "cocker spaniel (a far more viscious breed) attacks boy".




    you have perfectly fell into my honeypot here to give the forum a prime example of my point on how the media manipulates you, and has you believing false narratives.


    Thank you.
