IOW: Has it left the building? Statements like "my truth" of which there is NO such thing truth "belongs" to no one.... Full disclosure most who read this thread know I was a defender of Trump not necessarily because I believed or liked him but because I saw lots of disinformation and bullshit swirling around case in point the whole "drink bleach" or the "virus is a hoax". NEITHER of which the man said. Whether or not he inferred it is an other matter entirely. I changed my mind and no longer support him being elected HOWEVER that does not mean I am for Biden , Biden is way to old to assume the responsibility of the most powerful office. But back to the topic, what I see here is so much vitriol and hate thrown (deservedly or otherwise) by those who are supposed to be tolerant . "if there is cause for criticism it should be done in a mild way. But it is better to honor other beliefs for this reason - by doing so one's own beliefs benefits and so do the other beliefs.. therefore contact between belief's is good. One should listen to and respect the doctrine's professed by others." Bias on both sides is crazy strong I actually wonder if Manson was on to something when he proclaimed what is truly wanted is a "race war" or "class war" Was the news ever reported objectively? A Brief History of Media Bias The roots of media bias go back to the nineteenth century, and complaints about bias in part reflect a questionable idea about the media’s role and purpose: that newspapers and other dispensers of public information exist to transmit objective, factual information gleaned and communicated by credentialed professionals. Here's Why Journalism Ethics and Objectivity Are Still Important Because of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the press in this country is not regulated by the government. But that makes journalistic ethics all the more important, for the obvious reason that with great power comes great responsibility. One need only look to cases where journalistic ethics have been breached — for example, fabulists like Stephen Glass or the 2011 phone-hacking scandal in Britain — to see the implications of unethical news practices.
