    Fox and Rush and all the conservative websites have massive control over the Republican party.

    And they spread lies like crazy. And people that go to church believe them.

    Actually, they don't outright lie. They just don't give the other viewpoint. Just like CNN or MCNBC for the other side.

    Oh, they definitely leave out tons of facts but don't kid yourself and think they don't lie because they do.

    And you don't think the MSM aren't just as bad? CNN? MSNBC?

    Al Jazeera is OKish, but I prefer Associated Press or even PBS Newshour.

    Didn't know AP had a broadcast. Newshour I used to watch but I drifted away from it after Charlie Rose. I used to really love Charlie Rose for top story/analysis in a less vacuum packed sort of way but of course he was one of the early #MeToo casualties. Haven't watched much PBS since except for Downton or one of the crime drama binges when they are showing back to backs on a rainy weekend.

    AP doesn't unless you count some livestreams. My bad.

    I would also push for Telesur which has livestream. Great to get info from different perspectives.

    Of course Fox is part of the MSM (Main Stream Media), along with MSNBC, ABC, etc. I always find it amusing that the Trump worshipers label all main stream news sources on TV as MSM, except for Fox. Alternate universe? We don't watch CNN, mostly MSNBC and we switch to Fox to see what they are 'reporting'. Also visit non-MSM news sources like PBS, NPR, Time, etc. Don't visit WND, The Blaze, etc., not interested in conspiracy, will watch Trump rallies for that.
