    Self explanatory chart. I admit all my news sources were far right. I've killed that and rely solely on the middle (NPR, BBC, The Hill, Reuters.)

    What I've found is the middle, non-partisan sites don't post new articles nearly as often. Guess it takes time to verify. Who knew?

    Chart is seriously flawed.

    Examples: NYTimes, CNN, NBC News all identified as "Minimal partisan bias".

    I've never read NY Times or NBC, but in regards to CNN, it says "better than no news" -- not a glowing endorsement. It's at the bottom (sensational / click bait). And I agree, they're horrible.

    I generally like Joe Rogan's opinions.

    Right on cue,
    CNN host Chris Cuomo says 'fake news' insult is 'equivalent of the n-word for journalists'.

    Don't refer to CNN as "Fake News" because, joking or not, they'll cut your feed.

    Youtube is becoming the forum for news. Younger broadcasters, not influenced by big wig corporations. You can find non partisan views, with more entertaining formats. I'm sub to 4 different channels and they don't spin for Trump/obama. I only watch the local news, because that's one thing they don't offer.

    Is James O'Keefe About To Smoke CNN? Tells Hannity He's Set To Release "Hundreds of Hours" Of Newsroom Footage "Wikileaks Style"

    James O'Keefe of Project Veritas is set to unleash holy hell Thursday on #FakeNews network CNN. Well, he didn't exactly say it was CNN, but it was heavily implied. Apparently the network has a mole...

    O'Keefe is known for undercover sting operations which have led to such bombshells as the DNC's paid agitator network, the outing of "DisruptJ20" / Antifa organizers which took place at comet ping pong - and netted three arrests (including a suspected pedophile), and most recently New Hampshire election fraud.

    Today O'Keefe was interviewed on Sean Hannity's radio show where he revealed that a major network has been "stung"

    O'Keefe: In the next 48 hours, Project Veritas, like Wikileaks, will be releasing hundreds of hours of tape from within the establishment media. Our next target is in fact, the media.

    Hannity: How long have you been working on this?

    O'Keefe: We've had people on the inside come to us. Just like Julian Assange has people come to him, we've had people, sources come to us and give us information, and we're going to be releasing it "Wikileaks Style" this week.

    Moments later:

    Hannity: Can you give us a hint what organizations are going to be impacted by this?

    O'Keefe: It's one that Trump has really been talking about, you can probably use your imagination.

    Hannity: So, it's CNN...

    James O'Keefe reveals to Sean Hannity that a "Wikileaks Style" release of information is coming on Thursday. #FakeNews #CNN likely target.


    In other words, a closeted Trump supporter working deep inside hyper-liberal CNN just gave O'Keefe a ton of behind the scenes footage of "The Most Trusted Name In News." My guess is we're about to hear a bunch of establishment media puppets revealing their extreme hatred for the sitting President of the United States.

    Remember that time CNN employees were laughing about Trump's plane crashing? If O'Keefe's release is anything along these lines, popcorn sales are about to go through the roof...

    I've found the WSJ to be leaning more and more conservatively as of late.

    I also think Fox News is as much of a joke as CNN is.

    But everyone knew that. The assumption for a long time was that CNN was a neutral party compared to MSNBC and FOX. They threw that out the window this last year.

    Great..even if it's true about CNN, and I don't doubt it, the last thing we need is Trump looking like a freakin prophet to the American people.

    True. But at this point, I am actually more worried about getting our press straightened out than I am about Trump. Trump will likely be gone in 4 years. The press being deep in the pockets of political parties and spreading (I hate saying this term) "fake news" all over is far more damaging than what Trump will do and is creating a lasting impact. How many kids are being indoctrinated by the news their parents are watching? I have people that work in my office in their early 20s that essentially think a conservative or Republican is a racist, redneck. That is from watching MSNBC and having that narrative stuffed down their throat. I'm sure those same people in Alabama think Democrats and liberals are Communist heathens. Problem is people aren't going to believe anything the other side says because everyone is labeling everyone fake news.

    Note: Obviously if Trump starts a war, I take all that back.

    Trump admin barred the NY Times, CNN, and Politico from WH press briefing today (and maybe into the future). I'm 100% against this. Just like I spoke out when Obama did the same to Fox I was against it. It's wrong. Luckily for Fox, democratic news sources stood up for them and got them back in. Conservatives should return the favor.

    Yes. And "Echo Chamber" works pretty well in this scenario too. ;)

    Nice to see Shep denounce Trump and stick up for CNN in particular (even though I think CNN has been VERY shady in the past year).

    Shep's in a tough spot. Do you take the side of the tyrant that is trying to silence and marginalize anyone who speaks against him AND that is getting his balls washed by a few people on your network...OR...do you take the side of the organization who has been caught lying to the American public on multiple occasions this year as well as colluding with the president's competition AND happens to be your direct competition?

    You have to go with protecting the principal of the press and not necessarily CNN in particular. I thin that's what Shepar is doing and I applaud him for it.

    I agree. First and foremost, protect the 1st Amendment. Then you can sort out where you fit in the pecking order, job security, politics and everything else.
