Good one!

What sorts of mind-altering substances must one partake in to reach your level of detachment with reality?

Fact is, on the biggest issue of the last 4 years, the pretended / invented story of Trump and the Russians, CNN was pushing, PUSHING NOT REPORTING a false narrative and were inviting guests on who only pushed that false (and far left) narrative. In the case of those guests who were "insiders" we now know that in closed door sworn testimony, they admitted they disavowed / knew nothing of what they were pushing on CNN.

OTOH, Fox was absolutely correct about damn near everything and continue to be on the side of truth and reason on the latest news and actions, from Flynn to the particulars of "ObamaGate".

not sure what road you're looking at.
But CNN is Neo-Liberal on most issues and often sympathetically far-left/woke and ANTI-right on social issues only. (except when a dem does something against the far-left social code, then it's Ok)
With a generally corpporatist and establishment base.
And Since Trump was elected it's become blatantly Anti-Trump.
To the point where it could legitimately rename itself "ATN" the Anti-Trump Network. even many progressives can see this.


FOX is generally neo-con on foreign policy with a cover of chest beating jingoism.
It's a corporatist, big biz and establishment supporters on economics.
And outwardly pro-Tra-Christianal but behind the scene they harass their female employees, and often leave their Christianity on the sideline if it conflicts with the latest republican policy and/or republican hero 'du jour.


BOTH LIE from time to time, MOSTLY by OMISSION.

You know, that's the big problem. The left actually believes CNN, MSNBC, and others are middle of the road.

I really don't understand how they can be so blind to not see the manufactured narratives from the left.

Every networks has the same opinions, same talking points, and same buzz words, on every issue, and it all happens at the same time

How could that happen if they were actually being journalists?

the funny thing about that is that,
if they all did see the same story
and they all told all the facts truthfully about it
then they WOULD be saying nearly the same things.

But as you say, even with that there would be DIFFERENT subjects covered on different channels, not the SAME set of stories 24 hrs a day for 3 days then a new matching set to replace it for the next 3 days etc etc etc.
