    Yes, the media can’t destroy innocent people just so they can advance an evil left wing agenda.

    I listen to the Fox News audio feed on Sirius during the day from time to time.

    Fox News presenters insert editorial comments into news stories on a constant basis. Year ago, Roger Ailes had them programmed like disc jockeys, armed with the morning spin memo (which apparantly still exists) and a list of pat phrases and memes that they are instructed to work into their patter and repeat several times an hour.

    I don't know if this is still being done, but it used to be that way. I know the morning spin meeting is still a Fox institution, just as coordination with the White House is.

    Fox isn't a news organization. It never was.

    The “news” as presented by CNN and the NY Times is written from a Bernie Sanders/AOC view of the world (government = good, people = stupid, private sector = bad).

    I was a 10 year old kid watching the evening news and reading the newspaper (cover to cover) every day back in 1972. I saw this bias back then.

    It blows me away that some adults can’t see it, or maybe they just refuse to acknowledge it.

    Is this false narrative a transparent attempt to derail the thread by luring people into defending against it?

    It blows the rest of us away that folks like you keep getting fed false stories and fake memes by your favorite media every day.

    Even more so, since you go right back for more every day. Trumpsters like being lied to.

    Donald Trump stood up in front of the world and lied his ass off last Friday, and you all cheered for the lies.

    Fox is State-Sponsored Media (just like Pravda in Cold War Russia).

    Most people stopped taking Faux News seriously ages ago.

    "It blows me away that some adults can’t see it, or maybe they just refuse to acknowledge it."

    The people who defend the unquestionably Fake News have vested interests.

    I think that those interests are:

    1. They are on the same side.

    And

    2. It would be terrifying to contemplate the possibility that their entire world view is based on lies.

    Have you ever made a post critical of the leftist Fake News?

    I seldom take it seriously.

    It's celebrity presenters make the crowd on Howard Beale's fictional news program look like professionals.

    Like Trump himself, it's as gimmick filled clown show.

    If you want to know who's biased, who reported that Smollett got assaulted by racists Trump supporters and who held back until it was confirmed? Who reported that a native American was surrounded by angry teens in MAGA hats and who held back until more details came out? Who accused Trump of sexual assault just because he said something on a live mic to one guy, years ago, and who realized it was just words and not actions? Who said Hillary was a lock for the presidency? Who ignored Bernie getting the shaft, in the primaries? Who reports over 90% negatively on the white house?

    Bias is easy to see if you care to look. An extremely intelligent and educated cousin of mine, announced on Facebook that she's disgusted news organizations are being sued, because a bunch of teens got in the face of polite native Ameircan activist. Its already PROVEN they did nothing of the sort, but people still believe what they want. I don't even want to correct her, for fear of her never speaking to me again, because TDS is a mental disorder and sometimes its just easier to let them live in ignorance then alienate family. Its just not worth it.

    THAT's the damage the MSM is doing. Its not FOX. Its Liberal media hell bent on destroying this country.

    I do not recall right wing media holding off on anything regarding either of these incidents. In fact, the right wing media started yelling "fake news" the minute the event occurred, and with no evidence. They knew both were the sort of trashy unimportant stories that right wingers glom right on to because they feed the Trumpster sense of resentment.

    Both of these stories got WAY more attention in right wing media than anywhere else.

    Your post, and your continued obsession with these unimporatant events makes that crystal clear.

    I don't think that that's a workable strategy.

    They destroyed Ted Bundy's reputation and future.

    He was a stand up guy when he was younger. He was the president of the Young Republican's Club.

    I get my hbo for free, legally. I'm keeping it a secret how I do that, though.

    Commercial free.

    I go back to the Palin lawsuit against the New York Tabloid. Their defense in court, and it did work, was that they published the report without actually doing any research, therefore there couldnt be a willful misrepresentations.
