The more I think and write about bias and things of that nature in today’s modern media sources the angrier I become. People rely on news stations and different channels as their resources to what is going on in the world and it is extremely important. Whether it is intentional or not, news casters or anchors are doing an enormous disservice to the American people by having any sort of bias opinion when reporting on stories.
I think a huge problem that we see a lot today is simply whether or not a news station chooses to air a story at all.
I have seen this occur very often recently and especially in regards to the current presidential race that is going on. This goes for both liberals and conservatives. I think both sides simply refuse to report on stories of the opposite candidates side or refuse to talk about how well the other one is doing.
News outlets should be required to report on any important or critical moments in an election and to report them as facts, completely omitting personal opinions or beliefs on the topic. I think a lot of this happens unintentionally and I am giving them the huge benefit of the doubt but there should still be people up top who oversee what stories are being talked about.
Here is a face that is now very well known around the world and for some reason, he is still around. Since I talked a little bit about liberal bias on my last one I thought I might try and be fair and do one on the more conservative side.
Can He Be This Bad?
This might be a double edge sword (if that’s even the right phrase) but I kind of think that the major news outlets all have to be a little bias whenever they bring up Trump’s name. Let’s face it, love him or hate him he is entertaining to watch and I think he creates ratings for these news stations and networks.
I think I have made it pretty obvious at this point that I here at Modern Media tend to lean more on the liberal side of the spectrum. That being said, this might sound arrogant of me to say but I think Trump is so absolutely stupid that there is no way he has gotten to the point that he is at. I just refuse to believe that this man is as dumb as everything I have seen on TV.
I don’t really think there is any context that could be mixed up with a lot of what he says and I just refuse to believe he is as crazy as he is.
Feelin’ The Bern
Needless to say, we are living in a pretty crazy presidential election right now and America is split right down the middle with the two ends being complete and total polar opposites. On one end we have Donald Trump, who is the epitome of what a Republican is thought to be by liberals. Then on the other hand we have Bernie Sanders, who is the epitome of a socialist and is what every Republican hates and fears.
Personally, I love Bernie Sanders and his visions for American, but that is a whole different discussion.
I think it is pretty safe to say that at this point, Bernie is making his impact on American citizens and this is especially true for the younger generations. We are tired of it and are ready for change.
I found a very interesting video a couple of weeks ago and I really wish I could find it but I can’t. It was by a liberal news outlet called The Young Turks and I will be the first to admit they are SUPER biased in favor of liberals, but they had a video of I think it was CNN (don’t quote me) where they completely edited the debate between Hillary and Bernie and made Bernie look horrible. The results on their website claimed that Hillary slammed Bernie in the debate but according to polls around the country, she lost miserably.
See, if I talk about Fox one day I will try to even it out on the next.
It makes me wonder how much, if at all, of what we see on news sites is even remotely true. I will at least tell you when I am being biased here at Modern Media!
