From the article:

Quote:
When asked who would do the fact-checking required for the most-watched hours, Cuban responded, “Peer review ? News reporters will hold each other accountable.
Funny thing Mark, they could do that now. Unfortunately, most of those in the MSM are all on the same page with the same agenda. They have no intention to hold others to the truth while they are all pushing the same false narrative.

I Mark Cuban understood the First amendment, he would know better than to suggest such. The founder's presumed the media would self regulate because the public would demand honesty, with their wallets. But the Founders never suspected a Corporate news with a socialist agenda.

Who could possibly object to having CNN reporters, a distant third in the ratings, censor FNC, first by a mile. It's a typical Soviet Progressive solution designed to reward media Leftist with something they couldn't achieve in the competitive market.

Brave new world where reporter Glenn Thrush, fired from Politico for conspiring with Hillary's campaign manager but installed with great fanfare by the NYT as a senior WH correspondent gets to be a "truth" proctors for media content. What could possibly go wrong?

Most respectable News organization have an Omnibus man to self regulate. hat, pray tell ever happened to that element of responsible reporting?

We don't get the news anymore, just a qualification of what the MSM presumed we should be informed.

Time was the newspapers were successful based, like most companies, on the quality of their product. Now they are successful based on the extremes of their headlines. True or false being irrelevant to that end.

How do we convince the left that "Their" media is just as biased as Fox News?

Until they are able to see that, there will never be Unbiased media.

You are exactly correct: Liberals seem to believe that Fox News is somewhere off the right fringe, whereas CNN and MSNBC are unbiased sources of true news...

Too many people who call themselves liberal or left wing are convinced that reality has a liberal bias.
