Trust in the media   General Confusion

Started Apr-5 by Apollonius (Theocritos); 2519 views.

It always amuses me when people go on a rant about Fox News.   Of course I never watch it, though I have seen a few brief (1-5 min. long) videos lifted from their website and cable news network.

It's supposedly so arch-conservative, but at least in the little I see of it, I find it merely to present some alternative facts that aren't mentioned on the really big networks. 

Who are the really big networks?   Here is a list of the top 50 in the English speaking world, ranked by relevant revenue:

Notice that almost all these networks are 'liberal'/progressive in orientation.  About the only 'conservative' or 'centrist' ones are Fox and News Corp. (which owns the Wall Street Journal, among others), and they are numbers 12 and 17 on the list, miniscule compared to the leading networks, which are mostly so-called 'social media' sites nowadays (Google, Facebook, Apple).

The Epoch Times is simply a place to go after you've read the version of events presented in your ABC or the Washington Post.  They're biased in the opposite direction, that's all.

Keyword here is "facts".

I prefer staying grounded in reality.

Well you just missed Trump’s Blog. He just closed it down, very disappointed by the lack of readership!
