    One of their opinion-heads ends each show with, "Even when I'm wrong I'm right."

    It goes straight to the heart of your argument about the reliability of the source material, you aren't basing it on the facts, you are basing it on your opinion of the source. Do you feel that way about sources that lean into your own biases? If you don't then this is just kabuki, like always.

    I will present one of their reports and see how lousy this is for democrats. It exposes Nadler a lot but so what?

    We learn here that Jim Jordan is working to get Inspector Horowitz to step forward to be examined and that the Democrats block this man.

    So what is the complaint?

    https://www.oann.com/rep-jordan-dema...diciary-panel/
    Watch videos of the press conference when OAN reporters start asking questions: most of the time they are simply glorifying Trump and skew questions off the topic.

    Further, the channel often offers conspiracy theories as news are constantly being debunked on falsehoods they put on air like the story on how California was going to institute a Bible Ban, Syria never gassed its own citizens and the promotion of the pedophile ring being run by Hillary Clinton aides out of a pizza joint.

    Also, their WH correspondent claimed that Fauci created COVID-19 and it came out of a lab in North Carolina.

    You can't base the integrity of a news channel based on one story. There is a lot more to it that makes OAN sound like the drunk uncle at Christmas dinner.

    That's a good try at an evasion. How about CNN or MSNBC, then? Again, it doesn't matter you don't disparage any left leaning sources much, if at all.

    Actual journalists?

    You mean the same people that only 41% of Americans trust?

    And seriously, I need to wonder about the 41%....are there that many low wattage political hacks in America now?
