so is coverage at all the problem? or is the slant of coverage the problem? is fox's coverage OK, since it is anti-protesting?
i'm just trying to understand how best I should censor media outlets
To me, the biggest issue with the media right now is NOT the slant of the coverage. You can find either view on different stations.
The issue with the media (in my opinion) is the 24/7 nature of it and the ratings grabs that all of the different outlets are going for.
It used to be that you got the news after facts had been checked and info vetted. However, now every outlet is trying to get the next big story or next big breaking aspect of a story....so they are willing to put anything out there as facts or evidence. There is too much conjecture and speculation early on in any story that they are passing off as fact....and many people believe that anything said on a news cast must be true.
Sad part is that it is NOT going to change.
