20-something flights on Lolita airways, 0 supporters walking into Comet Ping Pong with assault rifles (that they discharge) while demanding to see something that doesn't exist, because literally no Clinton supporters are stupid enough to believe he is out to stop a pedophile ring and literally no Clinton supporters are angry enough to carry an assault rifle to a pizza parlor.Now do Clinton
the online media made a killing profiting off doom-scrollersWhen Trump was in office, you could pick a time, any time, and turn on CNN and count how many seconds it took before someone said "Trump." It was generally in single digits. (seconds, not minutes) Most of the time there was a banner across the bottom of the screen that had "Trump blah blah blah" on it. In those cases it was 0 seconds. It went on like that for years. As I said, they reported on almost nothing that was going on in the rest of the world. And news was happening in the rest of the world. All CNN wanted to talk about was American politics. It was all Trump. 24 hours a day.
FYI, it doesn't surprise me that you were incapable of seeing the above, in spite of it being right in your face. It's exactly what I would expect from you. IMO, journalism classes should be included in GE requirements in this country. The uneducated are completely incapable discerning the difference between op/ed material and news. You would be the classic example.
Networks decide what stories get primary placement and what headlines or taglines get written.How does one "go after Trump"? Is reporting what he said and did "going after" him? I really don't get it. Who is going to opine that he's a good person, a good leader, a good citizen, a good role model? His associates...? Who is going to opine that Bannon and Manafort and Giuliani are upstanding citizens? "Going after Trump...." Really?
Ding, ding, ding!!!IMO, journalism classes should be included in GE requirements in this country. The uneducated are completely incapable discerning the difference between op/ed material and news.
Now do Fox.CNN completely lost their sh!t going after Trump. It was sad to watch them morph into an op/ed provider and virtually eschew any semblance of journalistic integrity. There has always been a bias at CNN, but in the past they at least made some effort at providing news with something that resembled journalistic integrity. I was hopeful that after Trump was defeated CNN would go back to being something closer to a news network. They didn't.
This is, IMHO, about money. CNN discovered that their audience was larger when they stuck to being an opinion provider. More people watching means larger ad rates. More money is more money. So the current generation of viewers, on the whole, really doesn't want to see news. They tune in to have their biases reinforced. It makes them feel good about themselves and they get to feel self righteous. Look around this place. The level of smug self righteous BS is off the hook with a number of these people.
In the end the American people get the "news" they deserve. CNN is simply giving America what it wants and cashing in. Sadly, if there is something going on somewhere else in the world that has nothing to do with American politics, by the time CNN mentions it, whatever it is probably has a wiki page.

the entire business model lends itself to this
no one journalisms for the sake of journalizing anymore...it's a profit center
democracies depend upon a well-informed public; we're fkd
I don't watch Fox. They've been a cartoon for some time.Now do Fox.
That's 25 cases per million people.
