April ranks as CNN's lowest-rated month among total viewers in nearly four years, since October 2015. CNN's Cuomo Primetime, which has been the network's highest-rated hour, drew a total audience of 917,000 viewers in April, the show's worst-ever performance..

You might not be able to watch CNN if it continues on its current trend of losing viewers.

"Washington Post" Even after knowing the hatred the owner of the Post has towards Trump? And all the retractions it has made ONLY after getting caught telling their lies.

I have a seldom used bridge for sale, interested?
I consider that a good thing, tRump is evil and should be hated. He's the worst president in US History, but I wouldn't expect a reich winger to understand or agree with any of that....

The mediaís job is to manufacture crisis. Itís a sad day for them if nobody dies or suffers.

The only way to manufacture crisis is to divide us in anyway they can, by race, by wealth, by gender, by social status, etc., and fabricate conflicts when thereís no conflicts.

FOX news is the mouthpiece of the Republicans while the rest of the media is the mouthpiece for the Democrats.

^^Exactly this.

Turn off the news and go out into the real world. You'll be asking yourself - What crisis are they talking about?

The "news" does not reflect reality. That is the bottom line.

I don't trust any of them solely for news.
For example, search "American Flag Statesville, NC"
You will find all sorts of things. They were approved for a flag half the size, the company is being fined $50 per day for going against the city zoning laws and flying a flag that is too big close to a highway (interstate). The company is not Camping World but Gander RV.

People are losing their minds without knowing the full facts. Even the articles that I've seen from the west coast are leaving out important details.

Other. I don't 'trust' any of them to report just the facts. They all have their own agenda.

Most big national stories you can't get to the bottom of anymore so you just have to form your own opinion. The msm will leave facts out if doesn't fit their agenda.

For instance, the recent shooting in CO the media was able to find a picture of the Hispanic young man that took a bullet almost immediately. Look at any story where the perp is a poc or a muslim and they will never post a picture. Their bias is not even thinly veiled anymore.

It's complicated.
It's easy to get a 360 view even if you're only using social media for news. Take Apple News or Google News for example, or even Facebook. If you "like" or "follow" a variety of news sources you'll see them right there in your feed. Follow Fox, CNN, and MSNBC at a minimum and add in the Washington Post, New York Times, and a conservative paper of your choice for a variety of opinions.

But you're right, it takes a modicum of intellectual curiosity to do this.
