Title: News Media
Post by: Mac on January 22, 2017, 07:09:24 am
I think we are overdue with a thread on News Media. With the latest campaign, the unveiling of Fake News, the The News Corporations clearly becoming biased opinions vs. news reporting.

I've rarely agreed with Sean Hannity, to the point of shunning him completely, but ran across this small discussion/debate on YouTube, and thought there is some interesting perspectives here.

I've been saying lately, the news media is a real problem. Now with fake news, I find it corrosive.

I assume Buzzfeed is a social news outlet. I've never been to the site. I have been hearing a lot about it recently and not in a good way.

Then this is brought to my attention.

Again, back to fake news, rumors, no facts and just saying what you want to say, with the idea, let the audience determine if it's real or factual. WHAT!

Get use to it. This is what it's going to be like for the next 4 years. The liberal media has an ax to grind and will and are doing everything they can to undermine his administration because they still have not come to terms with the fact that their candidate failed miserably on the grandest stage of them all.
