So it is your perception based on your feelings. Interesting.
It can be political, but it can't dress up as impartial while doing it.
I have no issue with MSNBC being a liberal rag, what I have an issue with is them claiming they are not.
FOX News claims to be impartial. "Fair and Balanced". Almost all news organizations make the same claim that they are objective in news reporting if not with their editorial and commentary positions. Usually, it seems like when people discuss this topic they mix the general news reporting and the commentary together. For a truly fair analysis, the two must be separated. Some news sources make a genuine effort to provide opposing viewpoints by providing commentaries from a wide spectrum of political viewpoints in their opinion and editorial sections, or on TV, by having a varied guest list to provide differing views.
So Fox news lies just like the rest, but lies from the other side.
No current news org is impartial. they all are biased.
CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC and CBS use their "news" division to push a given view point. There's simply no denying it.
I am not sure about the lying claim, lying may not always be the case. Sometimes it is a matter of interpreting subjective facts or basing the reporting on misinformation, disinformation or just poor journalism.
I agree that most news sources are biased one way or another, I just don't view that as a negative. It is how the news media began in this country. Benjamin Franklyn and Thomas Paine were biased as were all the other sources of news during and before the Revolution. They were biased and the founders were well aware of biased reporting when they wrote the 1rst Amendment. It is the motivation that influences people to enter and operate in that industry.
The problem is when they claim not to be with a straight face, and then get their panties in a bunch when someone they don't like fights back.
All Trump is doing is calling them wankers, nothing more.
Um, how many people did Obama put in jail for talking? How many reporters were survailed?
It does not have to be denied. News organizations have a right and even an obligation to report the news as they see it, with whatever spin they want to put on it.
And the President or anyone else in government has the right to call them out.
I didn't see progressive get the vapors when Obama called out Fox news.
