    This is a pretty numbers-heavy piece, but any analysis nerds like me out there will appreciate it.

    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush

    Fat chance reuters would publish racist and xenophobic articles.

    Overall I'd view Breitbart with the same skepticism as Daily Kos, Salon, Huffington Post.

    I divide sources by truth or lies, not whether I like or dislike what I'm reading. I really dislike lies, which is why I really dislike Trump.

    But, observations are that anything you don't like is a lie.

    I don't agree with racism and xenophobia but, Reuters isn't a miserable partisan hack publication.

    Not really. It might take me awhile to come around but if I encounter good evidence that I'm wrong about something my views will start to change.

    Like yesterday I read a credible pro defense argument and I started to reconsider whether our military budget truly is as monstrous as I previously thought. The 3 point post by GTFErinyes seemed really good so I considered it.

    They're describing the link between "traditional media" and more partisan left-wing sites.


    Do you know what traditional media is? It is generally older media from television and newspapers. The reason this is highlighted is because of its contrast with new media like Breitbart that is all online. It has nothing to do with left or right or center.



    The Breitbart stuff (which is the core of the new media empire) is absolutely disinformation. You don't see anything like this in traditional media, hence the contrast.
    Yeah. They were. So was I. The so-called traditional media is left wing enough for the denizens of the partisan left-wing sites to be comfortable visiting. The authors just described it as a noble search for information in a broad range of media.
    Better never than late.
