>>> Yeah, and if they do support YOUR preconceived notions that doesn't make them "real news" or " facts".
We've come to the point where citizen journalists are now at least as reputable as any other news gathering organization.

Often more reliable if you heard about the leaked transcripts from the NY Slimes editorial meeting plotting how to slant the news against Trump again in 2020. The problem isn't that they can write whatever they want; it's their pretense of fair news reporting.

Actually, that doesn't make your news sources more reliable. Your news sources are very biased. And since they are right-wing activists posting on youtube, they don't have editorial meetings. Instead, they post their biased (and often based on nothing but innuendo and rumor) stories, and since they reinforce your beliefs, you find them more "reliable". But they aren't.

You've described left wing mainstream media better than I could.

I prefer journalists who aren't lazy, who travel to dig up information and interview witnesses and experts, who go through dusty archives of public documents looking for facts. In other words, what real investigative journalism used to be. Not the Mockingbird Media parroting DNC talking points sent to them daily.
