    Well yeah, in order to have any idea of news coverage you have to sample a lot of sources, otherwise all you're doing is making your own echo chamber. I look at OAN, Epoch Times, Sky News Australia, a few British and India news channels plus the MSM on both sides that include Fox, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, ABC, CBS, etc. You have to do this because if you don't then you're not really understanding the whole picture.

    I can say with the utmost confidence that if you're hearing the same news being reported by both the Trump hating news and the Trump supporting news then it's highly likely a story being covered the same way is actually true and accurate. Sometimes the Fake News gets it right but they're mostly 95% anti-Trump and they make no bones about it. It's so obvious it's humorous. They can take something good Trump did and contort it into something that's pure evil. I cannot help but laugh!

    One thing that happens to news channel viewers is they cannot discern straight news from opinion news. There's a big difference and I think, in my opinion, that's why the anti-Trumpers suffer from TDS. When you put two and two together it becomes clear why the TDS afflicted make the most ridiculous claims and consistently present absurd one sided arguments. This is the way most liberals, especially the far left liberals operate - ignorantly. BS23, Aimeeduh, SOG, sucxx, Barty, Bucky, Dork, Bender etc. etc. All of them are the same. One claims to be a conservative, which is the biggest joke going on the OT.

    I used to tune into CNN and MSNBC, but they’ve become unwatchable. The problem with most news on the Left it is all opinion. Sure the initial subject is news, but they always slant it.

    OAN straight new coverage is good. Their opinion hosts, not so much.

    I get AON thru Uverse.. They have been accused by many on the left(including ESPN) of being a far right fringe group.
    They support several controversial positions, such as:
    -1st Amendment
    2nd Amendment
    -4th Amendment
    -Rights of the unborn
    -Gun Rights
    -smaller government, less taxes and regulations
    -Strong National defense, pro police
    - Border enforcement
    - judges who support the constitution
    -Energy independence
    I can see why the left hates them so much.

    This is indeed the problem. They’ve ceased to separate news journalism from commentary, one of the essential tenets of journalistic ethics. As such, they are no longer a reliable news source and cannot be counted on to keep us aware and informed on real issues, good or bad.

    Even local LA news is biased. Last night watched the 11pm news briefly to see whining about people shooting off fireworks. The Trump coverage was petty and biased. The editing was designed to lead the uniformed viewer that Trump is to blame for everything.

    Most local news is live broadcast. If you actually watched it you might learn something more than watching You Tube clips

    Only a silly simpleton could believe such nonsense. LaissezFaire's comments regarding local broadcasts were spot on.

    I don't need lecture from Xman on content. Not sure where you get your flawed thinking.
