    Left wing media & foreign accents?

    Why do you suppose that the leftist media in America tends to hire a lot of foreigners who have foreign accents?

    The accent of the reporter is irrelevant to me as long as they speak my language, as I wouldn't watch news coverage in a language I don't understand. That goes without saying.

    There really isn't much right wing media in the USA. And I can't think of any right wing media based in the US that is foreign owned.
