  • This is why people don't trust the liberal media

    They are liars.

    I would love to see a critique of Jordan Peterson but if you watch the major media outlets all you get is your brain scrambled by their ludicrous bigoted editing. Correcting intentional distortions in the media is so frustrating and such a waste of time who is it that still watches this swill.

    Interesting poll call this evening. They asked a few generic questions to start then asked which Democrat would I prefer for governor. When I answered essentially "none" the call abruptly ended.

    The latest of STUPID reporting in the fake news media.

    1. "A parasite in cat poop can make you more sucuessful." That is a lawsuit waiting to happen given that the parasite in question can cause very dangerous health issues to new born babies or a woman that is pregnant.

    2. "Latest teen craze, dumping boiling water on them or drinking it with a straw." The headline was totally misleading. The teen was pranked by one of his friends dumping boiling water on him as he slept. That prank was a felony, not a teen craze.

    We have way too many people here with no clue or desire regarding personal accountability or being productive combined with little to no guilt about their part in stealing from those whom are productive.
    I tried to read it but it is just painful, Rand is pointing out the obvious within a limited frame of reference. I agree with Jordan Peterson's reading list.

    I'm less of a fan of Jung than he is but he has convinced me there is more to Nietzsche than I thought.

    We should discuss Rand and looting in detail I guess but I'm not feeling clever enough.

    I listen to these liberal professors who have become victims of the monster they helped create and it is clear that they do not see the connection between socialism and the lack of individual responsibility. Group identity is not a substitute for individual dignity and consciousness.

    Your examples think they can define not only "the news" but reality. That's one major start point for distrust of the MSM.

    Then there's a blatant example such as this headline;

    Inside the Trump Administration's Chaotic Effort to Reunite Migrant Families


    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/in...i3b?li=BBnbcA1

    The correct term is "ILLEGAL Aliens", i.e. criminal law breakers entering this country without proper documentation, passport/visa, without official permission, etc. Few are doing such as temporary workers(planning to return to nation of origin when the season or job is done), a.k.a. "migrant", most tend to stay here(when not deported), often scamming our economic and "welfare" systems, and making little effort to assimilate.

    Question is if most of the MSM is really so ignorant, or just blatant liars?

    I'm there with you. But the NASA channel is very good and the Smithsonian channel is reliable.

    I am not confused at all, I didn't bring up Trump, (you did as usual) I merely stated that I don't trust our media, that's all!

    You, quite frankly know nothing about statistics. The "study" you cite is a POS big time. The questions are generally loaded and there is considerable bias in the multiple choice answers they use, along with problems in how the questions are even worded. There is nothing fair or neutral about their poll and it was poorly devised. I guess that's to be expected from a no-name university conduction such a poll.
    Lot's of claims and no evidence..

    Also, if this businessinsider site brings unreliable statistics then why should we accept the study YOU BROUGHT FROM THE SAME LINK about the liberal media? And why are you using unreliable media for your claims?

    STUDY: Watching Only Fox News Makes You Less Informed Than Watching No News At All


    Media outlets such as Fox News and MSNBC have a negative impact on people's current events knowledge while NPR and Sunday morning political talk shows are the most informative sources of news, according to Fairleigh Dickinson University's newest PublicMind survey.
