    Indeed, and IMO, most leftists fail to use that faculty if the "news" they see feeds their confirmation bias.

    Well, what president removed the clauses that made news report both sides and fairly?

    First of all, the news in the US has never been "unbiased." You ought to read some of the articles about Lincoln's assassination if you don't believe me.

    Second, Donald Trump is a lying, corrupt sack of shit who deserves to be called out for his numerous lies. You don't get to call journalists liars simply for debunking Trump's nonsense.
    Don't confuse Donald Trump's arrogance for strength, or his false bravado for accomplishment, or his superficial interest in you for charisma.

    Agreed, but like Victor's article, you neglect to mention most rightists do the same. It follows a bell curve of human behavior.
    A rule of thumb: If you're lying about nonexistent voter fraud, if you're limiting polling places, if you're forcing people to line up to vote in a pandemic, even the old and the infirm, then it seems you're basically admitting most Americans don't want you to be president.

    Dr. Deborah Birx , Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Scott Gottlieb have not faulted the Trump administration's overall COVID-19 response.
    They attribute any shortcomings to initial global ignorance about the origins and nature of the epidemic, incompetence at the World Health Organization, or the initial inability of bureaucracies to produce easily available and reliable test kits.

    Fox is ‘hard’ right lol?

    There is no hard right major outlet. Fox’s lead man, Chris Wallace, can’t stand Trump. Brit Hume is an old school garden variety conservative that passed on the Never Trump bandwagon. We/they have even lost judge Nappy. There is one[1] hard righty on Fox—Hannity.

    Bret Baier is right-ish but he at least tries to be impartial in his roll.

    Tucker Carlson makes his loving speaking out against the lefties nonsense that dominates the other cable news outlets. And he’s living handsomely doing it.

    And that same study explains why Trump received the negative coverage:

    "So why is Trump’s coverage so negative even though he does most of the talking? The fact is, he’s been on the defensive during most of his 100 days in office, trying to put the best face possible on executive orders, legislative initiatives, appointments, and other undertakings that have gone bad. Even Fox has not been able to save him"

    Cite the quote please. Which Democrats are so fucking stupid as to trod out the old "Bush lied" BS?

    Fox is to the right what MSNBC is to the left, they are the same, both created to tell a select audience what they want to hear

    And Fox's prime time demogogues aren't left or right, they go where the money is, which today means supporting Trump 100% regardless of what he says or does, Hannity even campaigns for him

    What "clauses" are those?

    I'll understand if you don't know, of course.

    I gave you Hannity.

    He’s actually too much for me. Fox only *seems* right relative to the others
