"The next time somebody in the media denies that there is media bias, ask how they explain the fact that there are at least a hundred stories about the shrinking arctic ice cap for every one about the expanding antarctic ice cap, which has now grown to record size."

Reader comments about this quote:
What can be said of beings who are so benighted as to regard themselves as being irreproachable portrayers
of something such as they characteristically deny exists - objective reality.

Esteeming themselves to be wise, they have become utter fools.

Their hubris is boundless.

    The news media has it's agenda and it's far to the left, How else can you explain the media's working hard to drag the Hillary hag across the finish line. We dodged a bullet on that one.

    The MSM is a bought and paid for enclave of evangelical propagandists - set forth in a position to spread progressive dogmas of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land.

    The sky is always falling, apparently. Except that it hasn't, isn't, doesn't and won't.

    The real question is, what do these viewers get out of indulging in this? Why do they tune in, over and over, despite the falsity? It seems to me to be 'programming.' People are buying a narrative that puts the blame of their victimhood (powerlessness) on the other side of the tracks. Rather than pick themselves up, they riot in the streets.

    Hearts and minds are the real battlefield. The media could be so much more inspirational and empowering (the true service of the storyteller) -- I look to the 'little people' who often speak simple wisdom by telling it like it is. How refreshing!
