Ideological Media Bias

Recommended Posts

Lest some believe the current pattern of media bias is motivated by a sincere and noble sense of patiotism or fair play or honest journalistic integrity (or however they're trying to spin it this week), I offer this little blast from the past:

 

LA Times Suppresses...

 

I case Khalidi's name sounds familiar, you might have seen this one (but not on CNN & company...):

Columbia University’s Rashid Khalidi Is Secure in His Anti-Semitism

Are you saying you are less biased than the medias your read dear Brian ?

You should read the article.

 

EDIT: FWIW, I consume far-left-leaning sources like Politico (the link above, for instance) and far-right-leaning sources and everything in between -- drinking from a firehose, as the saying goes.

I said that because I think the most prevalent bias is the filter you put on the medias you read. And I still don't get yours. You remain a mystery for me :)

Yes, pretty much all of it.

fun!  as I was rereading that, this just occured to me:

 

 

so if a biased media tree falls in the digital forest and I'm not online

 

is the other 'team' still wrong?

Absolutely!

 

It is important to remember, though, that "your team" is wrong, too -- regardless of which team is which. All wrongs are relative...

*nods*  the whole notion of teams stirs nausea... a deep, visceral revulsion.

Whatever happened to "United we stand, divided we fall."?

 

 

Dear Citizen:

 

The Ministry is pleased to announce that -- MARBLEHEAD -- has been anonymously reported for impropriety, including use of language suggesting The Establishment no longer supports collectivism.

 

While The Establishment is the source of all Rights, including "Free Speech," any reasonable Citizen knows there are thresholds which cannot be allowed to be crossed.  Language challenging the wisdom of The Establishment clearly cannot be tolerated but all Citizens are magnanimously encouraged by The Establishment to freely express their conformity using properly authorized language.

 

Citizen MARBLEHEAD has been thoroughly investigated for the good of the Citizenry (especially the children, think about the children!), including his thoughts & behavior in "private" settings, and the impartial & anonymous Council of Superiors has determined Citizen MARBLEHEAD is a threat to the New Society and he has been judged "Archaic."

 

Out of kindness, Citizen MARBLEHEAD will be protected from himself and others, and will be reassigned to the nearest reeducation facility for rehabilitation, followed by humane eradication.

 

Thank you for your voluntary cooperation.

 

Love,

Vice-Minister of Population Compliance

Ministry of Correctness

If I was a "Warrior of Peace" I¬īd try to break Marblehead out of the reeducation facility. Sadly, I don¬īt dare. ¬†Good luck, Marblehead!¬†

Caused me a chuckle.  But I understand where you are coming from.

 

 

It's no coincidence every single mainstream media outlet and Hollywood are going against Trump.

He must be doing something right.
