    Media trust hits new low


    Axios is a left leaning media site. A few things I want to point out about their article...

    "Make sure it's widely accepted", "trusted institutions to visibly embrace news media", those "trusted institutions" being the "CEOs (a/k/a the fourth branch of government)", referring to CEO's "use the trust they've built up to help rebuild our civic infrastructure."

    So, what AXIOS wants is to make sure that any info the "traditional media" puts it is made to be believed by relying on CEOs (the fourth branch of government doncha know!) to re-enforce the media's narrative. Going beyond "merely putting truthful information in front of the public".

    Never mind that the majority of the public has seen for itself how the media exaggerates and pushes forth a narrative of their own design. If the majority of the public won't listen then we damn well better make them listen!

    Anyone that tries to convince me that this was written by someone on the right is going to get laughed at. A lot.

    What this person is advocating for is true corporatist fascism. Sad thing is that they don't even know that is what they're arguing for. As long as it pushes their agenda that is all that they care about. They see Twitter et al censoring people they disagree with and thinks its a good idea so it MUST be a good idea for all corporations to do the same. And they MUST! It's their civic duty! At least that last part there is what I get out of what I read in that article.

    How can anyone trust the MSM when they all use the exact same words and talking points the DNC gives them?

    Corporate controlled media, which I hold to be worse. While the State can propagate to the people to have them believe differently, the State's interest is in its survival, without the survival of the State it has no entity. The corporate bastards on the other hand owe to their fiduciaries and to their trusts. And of course such an empty propaganda machine has finally been seen for all it is.

    Democrats believe everything they see on TV.

    Anyone remember when each news outlet was different?

    Democrats will usher in a new era of censorship where the CCP controls what Americans can and can't see.

    psst...in case you didn't know, this thread is about news media. Not social media. Its not even about Trump. Its about the majority of the populace not trusting traditional news media. And by majority that would include those on the left side of the political spectrum. So, do you have anything to say in response to what I said in the OP? If not then would you please go find some other bridge to take cover under?

    "As long as it pushes their agenda that is all that they care about"

    ^Sounds good to me.


    After 4 Years of having to listen to Trump's Brain Diarrhea and Tinfoil Hat BS, it will be fun to see "MY Agenda" get "pushed" forward.

    Sounds good.:salute:

    Good to know that you'll accept anything that pushes forward your agenda. Don't worry, I'm sure they'll never come for your beliefs you're immune and invincible...................................

    You really only know what you're told by the MSN.. I personally and all my circle of friends don't even have twitter or face book accounts. Clearly you confuse DNC drama with Conservatives and nothing can be further from the truth.. In fact, the absolute MOST information I have seen about Trumps Twitter has come from this site and the leftist that hung on his every word and then posted it 24/7 here.. Other then that, they live their lives drama free while the other side feeds on it like honey to a bee ;)

    Thanks for the good Wishes, Kal'Stang.

    And, you are correct. I am NOT "Worried".

    Besides, regardless of "Media Bias" and "Agendas", it's All Good.

    I'll never die, I've got too much money.:salute:

    Do you think individual members of the media are embarrassed about their fawning over the Biden administration?

    “YOUR Agenda” will soon be realized under Joke and Chlamydia.

    I’m happy to be watching from a very safe distance.

    Sounds good.

    Except "My Agenda" has (absolutely) nothing do with BS "Hey Lookie Here! Socialism!" Memes.

    Anyway, back to the OP and "Media Trust", obviously 4 Years of Trump has Poisoned everything about people's perception of the Media.

    There is distrust for both left-wing and right wing media at this point. The country and our media have gotten so partisan this is hardely a surprise.

    "continue to report reliable facts"? Really? Is that what they think they've been doing? That's funny.

    Don’t worry, now that trump and his daily diarrhea of lies about fake news is gone, things will get better. A lot of people were brainwashed and need time to deprogram.
    We’ve been warning you about trump for 4 years and now you see why.
    Everything he touches turns to ****.

    This sounds familiar. Same exact words that come from CNN and MSNBC every night. It’s like brainwashing or something.

    So we should see media trust rise again?

    What do you want to bet me that it doesn't?

    No media should be completely trusted -regardless of their bias

    However people on both sides go with the media that tells them what they want to here
