When will the media be held accountable for this reckless behavior? Propaganda is not news.

1) Because they are biased, and want Biden to beat Trump.

2) Because they are too stupid to realize what happens to them if socialism takes root here...see Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, China

3) Because they know Biden is too feeble-minded to handle difficult questions

4) Because there are so many morons who consume fake news media, which allows them to sell advertising & make $

Huh? I thought there was not going to be any debates because Biden was going to back out. What changed?

They did the same thing for Obama. They never tried to catch him in a lie or push him into a corner so they could capture that "GOTCHA" moment. They did this with Bush and have gone into overtime when it comes to Trump. Bush didn't fight back he just took the thrashing and retreated back to his office but Trump doesn't back down.





The mass media is the propaganda arm of the Left. You watch they are already coming around when it comes to reporting the riots. They started by denying them, then downplayed them and now they are denouncing them because they are hurting Biden in the polls. I suspect by the eve of the election they will be telling us that it was Trump in a master plan that approved the riots and that he actually funneled election funds to BLM and antifa so he could blame the mess on the Demoncrats...

The sad part is the gullible legions will believe them.

For decades the media has been biased, especially is how they cover the news stories. They dropped all pretenses of fairness trying to get Hillary elected, and now are even more blatant trying to get Biden elected.

But as people can now tell, it is not just biased coverage, it is the failure to cover anything that might hurt their candidate.
The bias of omission is more subtle, but it certainly exists.
That combined with multiple efforts to try to pull "their candidate" across the finish line is on display for everyone to see.

As to be held accountable, they do just the opposite. A perfect case in point was when Donna Brazile was caught giving Hillary the questions prior to an event.
Then when she lied to cover it us, she pulled the race, woman, and even Christian card.
I am not sure where someone gets the nerve to pull the Christian card over lying about not having any canon of journalist ethics, but she did.

So what happened to her?
Was she banished never to be on news and opinion shows again?
Of course not, she was back on ABC after a short hiatus, and now is a regular on Fox. She has essentially been rewarded.
So if Brazile and others can get away with such egregious acts, what is to disincentivize others doing the same or worse?

Rest assured those looking forward to the debates might not like what happens. Some of the so called moderators are looking forward to throwing 100mph high heat at Trump, and are going to put a huge softball on a tee for Biden to swing at.
The Candy Crowley's of the news world (she was never penalized either for her blatant actions during the Obama/Romney debate) are just itching to go down as leftist heroes, hoping to make a difference in whom is elected.

They are not journalists, even biased ones. Instead they are advocates, even activists trying to do their part to influence the outcome.
So what can be done when they are rewarded rather than shunned for their unethical/unprofessional behavior?

The only way they can be held into account is if the viewers stop watching. Unfortunately, they are so commical I just can’t help tuning in once and awhile for a good laugh.
