    To the Presidential admins that wage war, especially one like the Bush admin, we were nothing but tools. That's the obvious way in which our leaders see us, and public approval and media reporting weren't going to slow down the drumbeat of war.

    What an absolutely moronic post.

    A) did you miss cnn altering Bernie’s color just this week?

    B) did you miss their fake desert storm coverage?

    C) did you not realize all of these news networks are propaganda outfits?




    And lastly, Isis can’t do shit unless the US let’s them. Obama let them exist because they furthered his goals in Syria. For god sake, educate yourself before posting ridiculous garbage.

    And people who think the slant is "left" or "Democratic" are crazy.

    Most liberals think CNN is fake for pretty much the opposite reasons conservatives would. CNN is really far right wing.

    Fox News has always been cancer but it's also never been less of a cancer relative to CNN and MSNBC than it is in 2019. And Fox is still worse but that should be a given no one's giving out medals to news organizations for being less right wing than Fox.

    the slant is whatever propels the agenda or status quo, and of course ratings. MSNBC and CNN were very slanted to the right during the early stages of the Iraq war.

    Of course CNN is fake news. They’re just a propaganda tool for the people who own them.

    Cnn puts on whatever gets people to watch and doesn’t even stop to see if what they report is true figuring calling it preliminary covers their ass

    I think they distort facts and push narratives that are very dangerous for this country. The majority of people on that channel are very disingenuous and duplicitous. They are outright propaganda for the Left most of the time.

    I highly recommend this book

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manufacturing_Consent

    he has a way of articulating what I'm been trying to say so much more clearer.

    Nah, they report the news and then offer opinions on whatever crazy thing Trump did that day.

    sounds like you don’t like what they report but most of the people on their commenting are at the absolute top of their field

    Ya uhhhh no. I’m a leftist and I don’t watch CNN because they are too left for me. Chris Cuomo is a great show though but that’s about all I can watch there

    Does anyone else think CNN is right?

    I guess in the sense that official sources are taken to be trustworthy (they usually are, but not always).

    I've read it. He makes it clear that it's an unconscious process, while a lot of the right suggests that it's a deliberate thing. And he has a better sense of where biases go.

    And they change the video saturation to make it appear Bernie is about to explode.






    That should just about wrap up this thread...
