    There really needs to be a congressional investigtion into the media and how it operates against America....spinning, lying, and covering up the truth.

    Our msm is lilttle more than a huge propaganda operation. Gobbels would really admire them.

    The first thing populist authoritarian governments have tried to do through out history is discredit, censure, control, even obliterate all media and bend what is left to the governments will. What is happening in the United States is not new, it has been repeated over and over again. Trump came to power through a fear based populist agenda and has very definite authoritarian tendencies. While he was still just a candidate he said he wanted to open up the nations libel laws to make it easier to sue news organizations and win lots of money. I don't doubt that there is bias because reporters are humans with their own political ideas. That has been true since the beginning of news. A free press is the foundation of Democracy. No news organization is perfect nor should we expect it to be, when an error is discovered honorable organizations apologize. All news reporting that is not favorable is not fake news. We can all agree that Trump is not a normal President. The sheer magnitude of quotes, tweets, and actions by this President are exhausting but must be reported. All Americans should be alarmed with concerted attacks by any president on a free press. The press has to be there intact and healthy regardless of who the President is. Trump has been successful in selling his vendetta against all unfavorable news as biased, resistance reporting. A lot of it is just reporting. Trump supporters call it biased. The reality is that Trump is a cash cow to news companies. They are going to report on every action he takes and everything he has to say. Jimmy Carter also said that the press was too hard on Trump but he didn't use the word biased. I don't doubt that what Jill Abramson said has truth in it. Bias is not necessarily unfair if the reporting is true, factual, and unspun. I think most of it is true, factual, and unspun.

    She's got a book coming out but even allowing for an author's tendency to try to generate sales, an honest person would acknowledge the points she makes obviously reflect what's been going on.

    Perhaps.

    But she might want to distance herself from the current insanity. Again, she wasn’t any better, being the Obama ball licker she was.

    i have no idea what you are writing about (and I don't think you do either.) The Times does one of the best jobs at reporting facts about current events. The fact Trump ordinarily is portrayed negatively is because his actions are generally negative. There is no way to positively report Individual-1's constant lies, falsehoods and untruths. There is no way to portray degradation of the environment or the corruption positively.

    Moreover, the Times was not shy to be critical of Obama, regardless of what you wrote.

    The larger MSM has become a tool of the NeoCons, Deep State, MIC, and Intelligence Agencies. That would follow a Goebbel's plan exactly. Gee, we're way too smart to be snookered by a little mind massage, eh? Media is not Liberal/Conservative biased, it follows the money, as in "cherche la femme," cherche le dollar."
