And what, we're supposed to choose between never criticizing society, or living as ascetic hermits in caves who abstain from all society? I will post whats reported by the MSM because its what we've got for a media, because its the message thats going to reach millions of others. I can disagree with the state of it and still utilize it, because its all we've got. Someone who opposes our world's burning of fossil fuels can still drive a car.
Can you really defend the fact that a bombshell story like this dropped and had abundant verifiable evidence right out in the open, yet not a single outlet is covering it? I am quite sure journalists all throughout the mainstream media are fully aware of the story- that nude picture of Rep. Hill is being spammed on twitter. Like the stories about Ilhan Omar, the media is consciously choosing not to report on this. Except at least in that case, the evidence was mundane at face value, demonstrating only one element of the story at a time and requiring multiple pieces to prove anything. In this case, they have a picture of her naked brushing the hair of a 22 year old staffer, and supposedly have chosen not to publish even more salacious materials
If we had a picture of Trump naked with a young staffer on his payroll, you better believe it would be the #1 story on the news for the next month and we'd be getting 24/7 updates from CNN
Yes, you'll still rely on MSM because you know the vast majority of it's reporting is accurate, even though there's multiple examples of false or biased reporting.
Everyone who complains endlessly about fake news does this. They know that Trump and others in the White House are giving scoops to Maggie Haberman and Robert Costa. They know NYT and WaPo do the best job covering the White House. Anyone with a triple digit IQ who follows the news closely knows that the vast majority of stories turn out to be accurate, especially if multiple outlets confirm them.
Stop pretending. Everyone who follows politics values the MSM, whether they will admit it or not.
