    Is alternative media more biased than "mainstream" media?

    They all seem to have a strong bias for Trump, sometimes even Hitler (although they don't like to admit that).

    While mainstream media seems to be center-left/left, alternative seems to be right/far-right.

    All media is biased, it takes some personal responsibility to do the research yourself and be able to discern the indifferent information from the mouths speaking it and the emotions that dilute it.

    No answer. Too many disparate options. There are many partisan alts and mainstream.

    Is this breaking news? By the way, there are alternative media who are far left.

    And, I would add, no one should even bother reading the crap from the very biased media. If they are that biased in the first place, every story they do should be taken with a grain of salt. That leaves doing exactly what you said, but only with the MSM.

    And there is mainstream media which is right-wing.

    I was talking generally.

    1. Sorry, but this question isn't as cut and dried as to support a yes/no poll.

    2. Alternative media is media that is not mainstream media. That's it. Just as there is mainstream media that is left and right, so it is with alternative media.

    3. When talking about bias for or against Trump, I would say the bulk of the Mainstream Media is obviously, totally and unapologetically against Trump. In my mind, that makes them much more than simply "center-left/left".

    Personally, I don't call any of the obviously biased media mainstream. I know some would disagree with that.

    It obviously depends.

    It depends, so I can't pick either choice.
