    I don't disagree but I think many people get most or all of their news from Limbaugh and other conservative sources.

    I have to admit I get a lot of news from the Daily Show.

    That journalists report facts and the truth conservatives don’t like, that journalists report facts and the truth which conflict with rightwing political dogma, that journalists report facts and the truth subjectively and incorrectly perceived by conservatives to be ‘hostile’ to Trump or other Republican politicians doesn’t mean those journalists are failing to be objective.

    And conservatives get lots of their 'news' from Rush Limbaugh and Shawn Hannity.

    Just pointing out that even if I disagree with Fox News- they are 'news' while Limbaugh is as much of a journalist as Seth Meyers is.

    Rush Limbaugh, Shawn Hannity have become the news because the MSM 'news' is nothing but propaganda. As usual, lefties have it ass-backward. Limbaugh presents the rock-rib conservative, patriotic, American POV and does include sources for his commentary. Hannity actually has research crews finding certified documents, etc. to support everything they find. CNN doesn't investigate the Bidens, has nothing but leftist opinion programming, couldn't care less about the fake dossier, the fake rendition Schiff did when he completely lied about the content of the phone conversation between our President and the Ukraine President. They couldn't care less that Biden bribed the Ukraine with the withholding of aid until they laid of his son Hunter. No....Nothing to see here.......CBS, NBC, ABC, NPR, MSNBC are no better either.

    Objective Journalism is an oxymoron.

    NPR and the AP are the gold standard. CNN’s news reporting is very good as well as is the WSJ.

    Do you think that either Hannity or Limbaugh fully and accurately present the entire story?

    Is it possible that they avoid/ignore evidence, information and facts that might be contrary to the point they're making?

    What evidence do you think they are avoiding?
