I watch a lot of different news networks and Fox is the best as far as trying to be unbiased. They constantly do a bit of Trump bashing when its called for. Of course, Fox leans towards the right, but dont say they dont criticize Trump, because they do. Watch it sometimes and you'll know.

CNN has to be the worst; its Trump bashing 24/7 nonstop whining ad nauseam. Its like watching a bad soap opera (fake crocodile tears) combined with watching a train wreck at the same time, LOL. i wouldn't go as far as calling them totally fake, but they do twist and cherry pick the news to fit their whining agenda.

I hate when people b**** and complain. I hate when Trump does it, and I especially hate when news networks do it.

Trump might be naive and even careless with his words at times, whereas the MSM is the dark overlord of everything insidious and rotten in our news outlets.

* CNN reported that the Trump campaign had been tipped off about hacked DNC emails. Turned out the Trump campaign was fed information AFTER it was already made available to anyone who wanted it. No one was suspended.

There will be more mistakes this week, too, I am sure. As usual, Trump makes them all look like donkeys when he reports directly to the people via Twitter.

Thank God for Twitter. Without it the media would be able to run America the way they want.
That on the heels of the Matt Lauer debacle who was the highest paid MSM anchor on TV.

And then the Brian Ross thing.

Yup.

CNN, WaPo, ABC...even Bloomberg News can't get it right.

So, yes, let the tweets continue.

Most journalists do lean toward the left. That's true. But most of them do a very good job of reporting facts. The bias is not as extreme as you might think. I would suggest taking a look at this site and their ratings of nearly every news source on the market:

I feel a little sorry for people who are so convinced that 95% of the news media isn't reporting the truth. You've been brainwashed, and you're behaving as if you belong to a cult.
