Watching the mainstream media today will at the least cause you to become nauseous. Since the swearing in of Donald Trump, I have tried several viewing plans to keep the sickening propaganda to a minimum, and it’s no longer working. In January I started out by watching FoxNews for 80% of the time I chose to watch cable news. That went well for the first month, although I quickly got bored by the “Trump Train”. So in February I decided to change to watching CNN 80% of the time.
How insane is the world of cable news? When Shepard Smith of FoxNews reports a story negatively on Trump, the Trump supporters call for his head. Shep trying to objective on a right wing cable network brings out the crazies saying he is a left loving CNN wannabe. Damn, what happened to unbias reporting?
Possibly the worst move I could’ve made. As bad as FoxNews was/is for Trump, CNN is the exact opposite. CNN trips over themselves to bash anything remotely associated with the Trump administration. They take it a step farther than Fox in that the talk show hosts (who claim to be news anchors) will cut off the person they are interviewing if what they say does not fit the message CNN is trying to give. It’s the furthest thing from objective news that is on cable TV. Even Fox will let the guest speak before trying to destroy their point on a subject. Anderson Cooper seems to still be the only semi-objective face on CNN. They are so absorbed with themselves, they still claim to be “The Number One Source of News” even though they rate lower than MSNBC. No doubt after Rachel Maddow’s debacle recently, CNN may jump up a position.
