A vast majority of the media is leftist. Saw an article posted on the effects of the trade war with a very negative title, that said "maybe" and "probably" all throughout the article and finally at the bottom posted actually facts and positive numbers that more people were working and consuming and personal income taxes collected was at a record high. So much spin in every article, anyone can see it.

If you want news then read multiple news papers, if you want opinion then watch TV , if you want political bias then listen (radio), if you want lies then search social media.

Who doesn't have a political paradigm when doing any of the above? (rhetorical) We all do. Caveat Emptor applies.

It has been noted many times by many outlets... most opinion TV is against conservative/republican platform. nothing has changed and nothing will change with them. Conservative/republicans usta just roll their eyes and shake their heads, however president Trump doesn't/can't do that without an utterance.

Sticks and stones.... after all.

So you fear the truth being said about the media?

9. "I think the press has lost all credibility, much of it. But it's lost a big part of it. I mean, a very substantial part of it, lost all credibility."
So, the media has lost all credibility. Actually just most of the media. But all of the media has lost a big part of its credibility. Actually it's a "substantial" part of the media. But they've lost all credibility, that's for sure. Got it?

It's clearer than your thread title.

I know which sites lean left and which ones lean right. I hear both sides of a story so I decide who I think is telling the truth. And I am here to tell you, it ain't Democrats.

Anti-trumpers forget this, very clear statement from schiff....


“ample evidence of collusion in plain sight.”

When does the impeachment begin?

OJ was deemed not guilty. All circumstantial evidence. Do you think he was?

Trump and Moscow have been intersecting over and over for years right up to the election, and with incredible timing. Many do not believe this is a coincidence.

Ed.: No not really. Because, is there an absolute truth here? I don't think so. If your political beliefs are hard right, then naturally you'd see most of the press as liberal. I'm somewhere in the middle, and I can readily find reliable news sources that more or less fall within my views. For example, in this chart:

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/ho...art-2018-02-28

the stuff I follow lies pretty close to the middle.

Russia took Crimea with no sweat during Obama/Hillary but we are supposed to believe they preferred Trump to Hillary for president.

Moreover, the Clintons received a lot of big money donations to their foundation from Russians while Hillary was Sec of State, a huge financial conflict.

Hillary also gave Russia a large percentage of the US uranium supply.

The media isn't perfect but I will take a free press any day of the week compared to the stench in DC. We wouldn't know the half of the things our politicians pull without the press.
