The fact that Huffington Post is in the box for "fair interpretation of the news" is laughable. I also disagree with throwing up a bunch of news sources that aren't visited by the masses just to clutter up the chart and make it look less one-sided. People aren't going to info wars and huffington post expecting to read unbiased reporting. That's not mainstream. A made up chart full of bias itself doesn't support a point. It is just another opinion, which appears to be quite skewed to the left in my opinion.

    The majority of the country favors left policies/positions. This is a non issue:

    Huffington Post comes in at hyper partisan left.

    CBS
    NBC
    ABC

    All main stream, all pretty neutral.

    People don't go to Anderson Cooper for news, they go for commentary, that's not the same thing.

    This is the site the chart comes from. You can decide if they're part of the liberal news conspiracy.

    https://www.adfontesmedia.com

    I think if someone has a paranoia and fear of the left controlling the news, they will see what they want to see in this chart.

    Seemed spot on, to me. By the way, as I said, I make no bones about being a social liberal and fiscal conservative. You can stop using the word "left" as an insult. It doesn't bother me. ;-)

    Pete if you are taking what I said as an insult to you I don't know what to tell you. I used the "the left" and "the right", and clearly wasn't referring to you whatsoever. You can describe yourself how you want, but I find it odd that an independent would take such offense to an observation about a simple chart and usage of the description "the left" when referring to it. Hell, the chart uses the term itself.

    You can do better than paint a differing view than yours as paranoia and fear by the way. I know you can.

    Left isn't a pejorative. Leftist can be.

    If I misunderstood, I apologize. It just read like you were using it like a dirty little word, like "socialism" (another word I don't find insulting).

    I'm an independent as far as having no affiliation or support of a political party, because I think they are both trash and the real "battle" is between the wealthy elite and the rest of us. That said, I clearly prefer the Dems to be in power and support a liberal agenda.

    I'm not painting the view different than mine as paranoia, I'm painting what I think is paranoid behavior as paranoia. To assume the entire MSM has a liberal agenda just isn't accurate in my book. I actually think the MSM crafts their coverage to the left or the right depending on what they think will get more eyeballs. So if the research shows a good Trump bash will get ratings, they will do that...Doesn't mean they're supporting a liberal agenda because they are liberals, if that makes sense.

    I tend to agree. They have a ratings agenda.
