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!
Going to be Biased Here
I am going to warn you right now that this post is going to be completely biased but I am telling you first so I am going to feel alright. The absolute biggest embarrassment to any media outlet today is Fox News.
Who can see this face without immediately being filled with rage and disgust? I am not saying that i think Fox News should be silenced or Bill O’Reilly shouldn’t be able to say whatever the hell he wants, but the fact that this man and this station have a very successful following is deeply disturbing.
They can have whatever opinions they want, but they are feeding their pathetic audience absolute lies. I can’t help but every once in a while hit up YouTube and see some of the Fox News fails and just embarrassing interviews that they have and Bill O’Reilly never fails to entertain and terrify me. What I mean is I just watched a full interview of him completely denying any kind of credibility behind global warming.
I’m sorry, but the debate is over. When 99% of all scientists agree that something is absolutely true and is something that we need to be concerned with, then it is safe to assume that this is true. Anyone who disagrees with this is an absolute lunatic and has no place in today’s society as they are just holding back the human race.
I got a little carried away there but this passion is what you’re going to get here at Modern Media
Needless to say, we are living in pretty crazy time. This new election has turned into a god damn reality show and there seems to be nothing but fear mongering and political bias when it comes to any major and credible news networks. I don’t know what to believe anymore and I can’t take anything that NBC, Fox, or CBS seriously without taking into consideration their political stances. When I watch something like the presidential debate I immediately start surfing the major news channels to see their take on the whole thing and it is absolutely mind boggling.
Times Are Changing
The one thing I do like about today’s generation when it comes to media outlets is that we do have a lot more options when it comes to our sources other than major news networks. We have Facebook, Yahoo News, and plenty of other outlets that we can get much more credible and in my opinion, less bias sources for our news.
I honestly get the majority of my news sources from Yahoo News and then trail off various links to get to the source of most stories. I think the majority of major news outlets and companies just pick up stories that are going to grab attention and get people watching, instead of giving out legitimate information.
I worked for a school news paper when I was in college and even then the head of the department drilled in our heads that we need attention grabbers.
It’s been a while since I worked for this paper and I kind of miss it so I am going to try and give my 100% unbiased and non professional opinions on current news stories and various media outlets here on Modern Media Outlets so stick around!
