There seems to be confusion on this forum. Both Fox News and CNN are mainstream media and they are both biased. In fact Fox News ratings are much higher than CNN. Therefore I can’t see how Fox News would be considered anything but mainstream media and with the dominant bias being put out.

You're really grasping at straws here, no matter how silly. Called out for bogus statements, your only recourse is to sit quietly, waiting for something, anything to latch onto in a weak defense.

Once again, try harder.

There's nothing wrong with taking your news from several sources, and disseminating the truth through logic, reason, and intellect.

Are you saying there's something wrong with listening to the actual person involved? I would think anyone, no matter your political leaning, would want to hear what he has to say. But of course, there may be some truth in there that you don't want to hear.

Grasping at straws? We are called out for referencing things from mainstream media and you linked a report from CBS News. What is the grasp? No, it's hypocrisy.

If you had taken the time to actually read the article, you would have seen that the data was NOT from CBS. The list was taken from FBI and US census data. You'd also see that I provided an additional resource.

Do you have anything to refute any of that data, in terms of your Fort Worth claim? Of course you don't.

Next.

I don't think anyone ever claimed that Fox News was not mainstream.

This post has definitely proven that some people can have the truth given through facts and still refuse to see through the BS they believe. We as a people have such visceral feelings gained through our lifes experiences that help build our thoughts and beliefs into something that cannot be changed. Even when what we believe is proven repeatedly to be wrong, some still cling to the comfort of ignorant bliss. We often prefer to continue living in this ignorant bliss because its easier than dealing with the fallout that everything we've thought, known and felt all of our lives is and has been a lie. Its easier for this type of person to continue believing the lies they know as truth because its easier than admitting they are part of the problem, not the solution. All common sense and objectivity just flies out the window and they will continue to spout falsehoods, even those already proven wrong, often turning to name calling and accusations toward those with actual facts just to keep from confronting the actual facts, that they are wrong. I find it both funny in a way but mostly a little scary. The older I get the more of this behavior I recognize, the polarization, the weaponization of this trait by those who have figured it out, however more scary is the belief structure that is used to spread falsehoods by those that haven't yet come to recognize this in themselves. To ignorantly comment, protest, fight, loot, destroy...kill all on the assumption of moral superiority when your facts are clearly wrong...its scary as hell to know these people exist.

You can identify these people fairly easily, they are the ones with wrong "facts" standing on a soapbox and refuse to concede their view when confronted and corrected by the actual facts. I'm not making any accusations about anyone making comments here, you already know if you are this type person, even scarier though is if you are one of these and don't know it.

It was a report provided by CBS News. Brett has told us that we shouldn't be taking our information from mainstream media. This is called cherry-picking.

I have a legitimate question for all who have opinions on the subject of media in our culture, which seems to be most people who have commented on this thread. And it has less to do with the available media, but rather what I have found to be a vacuum within media. And it has less to do with my opinions about the "mainstream media," CNN, MSNBC, etc., which many consider to have a liberal bias and the "countermedia," Fox News, etc. , which many consider to have a conservative bias.

I discovered this issue about available media in the process of searching for educational podcasts. It is so simple for anyone to start a podcast. And there are a lot of ones that I have found created by people who simply like to hear themselves talk. So, one would think that there are some intelligent people out there who have knowledge on a particular subject that they want to share with the world, without any bias or agenda. But, there really aren't any out there, specifically with regard to science, that don't fall into one of the polarized camps.

My specific question is it one of the following explanations?

1. There are no objective, non-biased people out there making podcasts about science.

2. Those in control of the "mainstream media" have such power that they can squelch even a simple science podcast by an objective, non-biased person, because it threatens the mainstream media agenda.

3. We are so polarized as a society, that there is no demand for an objective, non-biased science podcast. As such, those who tried to do an objective, non-biased science podcast stopped doing it because no one listened.

Or some other explanation.

I tried posting a comment regarding the issue of mainstream media, but it wasn't allowed. I am a progressive, and I have a lot of issue with mainstream media. It's run by corporations that operate based on self-interest and not public interest. As far as unbiased science-based podcasts, Neil DeGrasse Tyson has a podcast. You may not believe him to be unbiased, but he has excellent content on all sorts of scientific topics.

I found this one via Google search. This type of content does exist, but I do agree that there should be more of it and it should be more mainstream instead of the sensationalism that is current mainstream media content.

Kyle Rittenhouse interview on the TV now. "Tucker Carlson Tonight", on FOX News Channel.

What other cable channel features an actual interview, in-studio, with the ACQUITTED (Kyle Rittenhouse) from the Kyle Rittenhouse court case?

*HINT*---None of your "mainstream" media (pronounced Propaganda Wing of the DNC).

What would be a better source of factual information, Kerry? Who would have a better explanation on what he experienced that night than Kyle Rittenhouse? CNN, ABC, The Atlantic, Bloomberg, The LA Times, The Washington Post?

Kerry, what you’re missing completely in Turtles response is that while the statistical findings were provided through a CBS report, they were not CBS statistics. One could have also researched through the FBI or census database and found those very same reports. There’s a huge difference in referencing links that take you to actual statistics vs believing op-ed pieces designed specifically to manipulate your opinion. If you can’t understand that, I don’t know what to tell you.

Actually you are cherry picking his statements to fit your narrative, he actually said "You did the exact thing I implore everyone not to do.......quote the mainstream media for your facts." Then went on to implore you to insure what they've said was factual prior to using it as a fact. If what mainstream news has said is an actual truthful fact, feel free to use it but spend a few minutes to back it up with other sources to make sure it is in fact true. Don't just blindly parrot whatever they say and claim it as truth as it is often found out to be their personal opinion not intact a fact. How do you not understand that simple premise?
