It's kind of unfair to assume that "liberals" are "fooled by mainstream media into thinking they are totally righteous".

Most know that the media as a whole is a money making entity, give "liberals" or any other group that you may think 'less of' some credit. Sounds like you have a somewhat negative view of all liberals as a whole.

 

Any news that any of us hear today needs to be researched and I am most positive that the majority (if not most) realize this, regardless of their political persuasion. There are extremists on the Left and the Right that gravitate towards only extreme news sources on either side of the political spectrum. They are not the majority.

 

It also should be noted that when a President does so many negative things that many of those negative things will show up in the media. Trump is a fine example of that.

All this Howling & Gnashing of Teeth Over The Notion That There is some new Attack on Freedom of the Press - is Nonsense - The MSM itself is and always has been One if not the Biggest Enemy of Free Speech and Freedom of the Press

 

Reporters do the work - Reporters Cultivate Relationships with Leakers and their Bosses Kill the Stories not because they aren;t True but because they are

 

The Main Stream Media are themselves particpating in Self-Censorship

 

The US Media - 95% of it - is a Profit Generating Business - if a News Report no matter how credible is going to upset a Major Advertiser or a Political Figure with Oversight - it does not see the light of day

 

For Example

 

Harvey Weinstein's Sexual Perversion & Assaults Against Woman was a Open Secret in Hollywood

 

Way Back in 2004 A New York Times Reporter Had Put Together A Credible Report Containing information exposing alleged sexual misconduct by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

 

The New York Times Squashed it

 

For Example

 

NBC Reporter - Ronan Farrow - who ultimately exposed Weinstein in a New Yorker Magazine Article works for NBC and offered them his Report and they would not Broadcast or Publish it

 

For Example

 

 

Over the years managers asked me to to soften or remove information from stories — or “held” stories — related to the NFL, the American Red Cross, Ford Motor Company, People to People, Feed the Children, the government, a college football player, Goldman Sachs and Boeing, to name but a few. (This implies no illegal activity or wrongdoing on anyone’s part; it simply raises ethical questions within the journalism industry.)

 

At CBS News, it became routine for my stories to be met with organized resistance when the White House felt those were contrary to its interests. One White House operative might contact a CBS manager in New York. Pretty soon, we might be fielding calls to our Washington office from political figures; another White House flack might call my bureau chief after hours. All would use similar phraseology and talking points.
