Do many of us peruse the news only for what we can use to support our views?
Fox News is the most trusted network? CNN is the second most trusted? MSNBC came in last?
What amazes me most is that the aforementioned networks are considered "News" instead of "Entertainment." Every "News Network" is on a crusade of some sort of another. None of them can report a snow storm without either crediting or ridiculing "Climate Change." "News Networks" are supposed to report on politics and NOT (other than in the editorial sections) participate in politics. They are supposed to report the news, not slant the news towards their target audience, and they are not supposed to make the news up.
News today does not measure to the old standards. Perhaps the old standards cannot work in our world of perpetual propaganda.
IMHO, Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, and others are only marginally legit. It is a chore sifting and sorting the gravel from the grits.
