Objectivity and bias in media

Where would Hannity rank on the list of all time hate journalists (U.S.)? He’s got to be in the top 5.

He’d probably come right after Chris Cuomo, although he does have the more annoying voice.

I’m just waiting for him to keep his promise of being waterboarded. I guess that wins him a lot of fans in the ‘tough guy but not really’ community.

What actual hate looks like, pay close attention:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson, one of the most influential voices on the political right, explicitly endorsed the white supremacist “Great Replacement” theory during his Thursday night program.

Carlson argued that Democratic lawmakers are “importing a brand new electorate” of “Third World” immigrants to “dilute” Americans’ political power by adding more voters to the rolls. He described his argument as the so-called replacement theory, which is a core belief of white supremacists that has motivated racist violence and [mass murder]

“I know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term ‘replacement,’ if you suggest that the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate — the voters now casting ballots — with new people, more obedient voters from the Third World,” Carlson told his audience, which is among the largest in cable news. “But they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening, actually. Let’s just say it. That’s true.”

For shame.

I’m not a fan of Fox News or any MSM, but they have three stories on Gaetz on the front page of Fox News, plus some others in subsections.

Are they covering him on TV though? That’s where their money comes from.

Either way they’ll have to cover it, or maybe they’ll go to their usual top story when a Republican is in hot water, gerbil races. :sweat_smile:

That argument wasn’t that they presented zero stories on Gaetz on TV, you know.

In about a week (9 days as of a day or two ago), the Baby Gaetz investigation was mentioned on FOX 7 times.

This is from the Melber video I posted, check it out.

Hmm…

For someone who doesn’t care for FOX news, you sure seem interested in defending them. :sweat_smile:

If you want to make the argument private lawyer is as newsworthy as elected house official, you’re free to do so!

It’s pretty obvious FOX is avoiding it though, it’s like the biggest political news story in the US, only. Real talk. :100:

Well, gosh, there’s some media bias, and personal bias from you as well. Twofer!

Well if you ignore all journalistic institutions not FOX and right wing blogs, I can see why you think so. It’s ok.

I don’t watch or read Fox News unless it comes up in my Apple or Google news feeds. I saw that people were saying that Fox wasn’t covering the story (or something to that effect) so I decided to look it up and it appears Fox is covering the story and has had an article on it about every day since the news broke and currently has 3 up on their front page. He’s also been the subject of some video coverage as well.

I didn’t watch the Melber video, but assumed that you framed it honestly when you said

And

These seem to be obviously false statements.

I understand why it’s the biggest story for the left wing media. It’s an important story and fits their narrative. It seems some other political stories are more important to the nation, though.

Only if you ignore the video, I appreciate you taking me literally but there’s a reason I posted it.

I’m quite interested in posting facts and considerate to boot, that’s why I went and answered Milker’s question about Avenetti for him.

Anyway, now that we’re clear, you can watch the video, or not. :grinning:

I guess I’m safe then.

Is Gaetz, a house rep, not under FBI investigation? I think he is, so I guess he fits their narrative of newsworthy news. Sounds crazy, I know. :sweat_smile:

So you not only deliberately misstate the contents of the videos you post, but the content of what others post? Congrats on the consistency, I guess.

You’re trying way too hard now. I did post the video in the original post you know. I’m the one who said they did it 7 times in 9 days. And the one who pointed out Avenetti’s numbers.

Just try to focus on something not me, don’t get me wrong I enjoy it, but it weakens whatever you purport you came in here to accomplish. :brain:

btw the answer is yes, for 3 or 4 things at last count. Please don’t take 3 or 4 as gospel, try to understand the basic point made. Thanks.
