    Can't you admit they ran a fake story?

    Simple economics, ad and subscriber revenue is in a death spiral.

    Try the Drudge Report. The site is a clearinghouse for news from all over the world. There are also numerous links to both liberal and conservative newspapers and syndicated columnists. Over the years, I have found that Drudge is by far the most reliable single source of news. Here's the link:

    None that I'm aware of. All one can do at this point is start with the headline and the most basic facts and take the time to flesh it out yourself.

    Of course, most people are not inclined to do that, and the media knows it.

    That's about all you have. Brett Bair is about the best. The rest have become opinion.

    Great timing on this thread. From just this morning, here is an absolutely perfect example of what has happened to the media:

    Perspective | Is media coverage of Trump too negative? You’re asking the wrong question.

    The president’s supporters often say his accomplishments get short shrift. But let’s face it: Politicians have no right to expect equally balanced positive and negative coverage, or anything close to it. If a president is doing a rotten job, it’s the duty of the press to report how and why he’s doing a rotten job.

    Does it occur to the writer, on any level whatsoever, that "he's doing a rotten job" is not a fact, but an opinion?

    No, it does not. These people have long since confused fact with opinion, and it's the primary reason they have deservedly lost their credibility.

    Balance would be nice...but most of MSM is located in large metro areas and they are solid liberal. Guy in Iowa who drives. Pick-up and drinks his coffee black at the local cafe gets ignored. But the cafe latte drinker at Starbucks gets pandered to.

    Yeah, that's an important point, and even Politico admits it: The Media Bubble Is Real — And Worse Than You Think

    It's all about demographics. This why MSM missed the 2016 election. They are almost all liberals and look down their noses at the "rubes" in flyover country and Rust Belt...who still support our President BTW.
