Unfortunately we have a large part of the population so dumbed down that they're unable to differentiate between liars and truth tellers. If you're getting your news from FOX "NEWS" it's no wonder you're confused. Fox is a mind stealing lie machine.

One could literally make a career out of debunking left wing outlets daily.

Hello E:

It depends on the sources of the "news", the reliability of the "newscaster", and your gullibility factor..

Certainly, media like FOX News, Sinclair Broadcasting, and right wing talk radio are NOT to be believed.. Whereas, old standby's like CBS, who gave us the likes of Walter Cronkite, and Edward R. Murrow, and the Washington Post who took down that crook Richard Nixon, CAN be relied upon.

The old "only believe me and only listen to me" tactic used by religious cults to keep their members in the dark toward the truth.

Fox News Bests CNN As "Most Trusted Name In News"

only the Fox News Channel enjoys a plurality of respondents (49%) saying they "trust" the network (vs. 37% who disagree). For CNN, only 39% trust the network's news product, vs. 41% who do not, and the distrust is even higher when the public is asked about the broadcast networks, ABC, CBS and NBC.

None of those people are alive, and none of these broadcasting networks look anything like they did in the 1950s and 1960s.

Thanks for explaining why 90 percent of Republican voters are religious:-

Hello again, Grinch:

Your synopsis is interesting.. Yet, if it were true, certainly more than 43.4% of the country would be Trump supporters. But, that's all he's got..

So, my synopsis is, that the MAJORITY of citizens read and believe mainstream media, such as CBS.

It’s been nearly a week since former Joe Biden staffer Tara Reade leveled credible accusations of sexual assault against the presumptive Democrat nominee for president, yet ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN have yet to report on the troubling story.

Hello again, C:

You say these are "credible accusations". I'll decide for myself, if you don't mind. What right wing publication did you get that from?? Why is it a "troubling story"?????? Because you BELIEVE it? What is the reporters name? Who else reported it? Can you link me.

If Joe is a snake, I wanna know it. If you're a right wing hack, I wanna know that too.

It's been four years since a lawsuit was filed in Federal Court against Donald Trump for raping a 12 year old girl at one of Jeffrey Epstein's house parties, which included corroboration from two independent witnesses.

No mention of this child rape confirmed by two independent witnesses or the highly suspicious death of Jeffrey Epstein earlier this year.

Indeed, no mention of the 92 or so women who have publicly accused Donald Trump of either rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment or inappropriate sexual behaviour.

Just an attack against Joe Biden over an allegation which has been discredited:-

If you start on the assumption that you should believe nothing you read in the newspapers, printed or online, and then work backwards from there you'll be on the right track.
