“If it bleeds it leads”
The 24 hour news cycle has given us the new mantra.
Look at today’s news….where is all that concern for Afghanistan? MSM has a new story they can beat to death…..
So yes there is a ‘media bias’.
The mainstream media has historically tried to balance left and right in its political coverage, and present what it views as a reasonable center.
That may sound good in theory. But the old politics no longer exists and the former labels, “left” versus “right,” are outdated. Today it’s democracy versus authoritarianism, voting rights versus white supremacy.
There’s no reasonable center between these positions, no justifiable compromise. Equating them is misleading and dangerous.
You hear the mainstream media say, for example, that certain “Republican and Democratic lawmakers are emerging as troublemakers within their parties.”
These reports equate Republican lawmakers who are actively promoting Trump’s big lie that the 2020 election was stolen with Democratic lawmakers who are fighting to extend health care and other programs to help people.
We as consumer of news need to stop focusing on the manure spread daily by MSM and start focusing on the nation and the direction both parties are leading it.
I have been writing about the pathetic attempt at the news by the MSM….
The Decline and Fall of the ‘Mainstream’ Media
The Media Is Pathetic!
There is so much more I have written….
The more one watches or reads the news the more one sees that it is nothing more than a ratings race…..true news can only be found by searching for it….and that is something in these days of instant gratification the people are unwilling to do…search.

Same here. Afghanistan got knocked off the headlines so they could create a ‘petrol crisis’.
Best wishes, Pete.
Ours was knocked off by the Texas thing…..chuq
