The media in the United States is completely biased.
The media is either totally liberal or totally conservative. The media no longer cares about truth, the facts, or investigative journalism. The media is just an extension of ideological factions. It just pushes ideology. To do this, the media will lie, be one-sided, and publish only items that will promote their agenda.
The press, or fourth estate as it was called, used to be independent. It was free from influence. It was a source of the facts, with objective analysis and commentary. It main purpose was to contain government power and keep the government honest.
Today, the fourth estate is dead. It has been replaced by propaganda machines.
What should intelligent people do?
Ignore most of the media’s output. Look only for issues. Find other sources of facts, analysis and commentary.
