    Kings of Fake News

    This Is CNN

    Oh, so CNN finally reported on the Iranian protests after all.

    On the Pro-government Iranian protests, that is:

    If I don't answer your post it's because you lost the debate.

    Yup. Every time the usual suspects on the right claim that "left wing media" isn't reporting on something, it turns out they've reported a bunch on it. Then the pivot is "oh, well, they didn't report when I say they should have!" Shoot that down and they pivot to "well, ok, but it wasn't put on the exact spot on the webpage that Our Lordship demands!"


    Here's why the Iran protests are significant - CNN

    Iran protests: Several shot on Dorud, source says - CNN

    Iran restricts social media and issues warning to protesters - CNN

    And those are the few at the top of google. I'm sure that if I did the same searches on yahoo, bing, etc., more articles would turn up since it seems that contrary to the lie, they have been reporting on it just like everyone else.






    I don't know where LowDown got the stupid lie that they're only reporting on pro-government protesters and don't really care because, well.....

    Fox and MSNBC have been and still are the king and queen, pick whichever you want as one and two. IMO Fox is king and MSNBC is Queen but the order doesn't much matter because they are both firmly in the dishonest and biased category.

    And what would you consider to be unbiased news?

    Well since they don't watch CNN, it kinda makes sense. Until a story trickles down into the right wing echo chamber they won't know about it, so they don't think the media covers it.

    How does it feel to be a government stooge?

    In 2017 I don't know of any that exist. Some are just better than others on the biased scale but Fox and MSNBC are two of the worse (in reference to TV network news).
    Theres pictures and charts all over the net, these aren't bad IMO but it doesnt match my "opinion" 100%

    So there aren't any "good sources," there are just sources that are worse than others?

    Lots of news - sadly for you they do not fit your limited agenda.
    You do know how to use Google?
