We would scream bloody murder that we aren't being informed and that the slight news we get from those stations is slanted and emphasized for a narrow group of people.
We need competing views to stay healthy as a people.
But there are options to hear other viewpoints -- thousands and thousands of options for everyone. The FD was back in the day when there weren't many options.
