Or in other words, if a "liberal" says something it's fake, but of a conservative says it, it's "not fake"?

Dodgy

No. But 95% of American media is left. I say that as a liberal.

The far-left majority is telling its consumers that media other than it is fake.
Yo, dumbass, billionaires own the major media. Funny that you would propagate FAKE NEWS like you did.

If you're going to quote me then be honest and use the correct spelling rather than adding letters, eg lindulge instead of indulge it just proves your dishonesty. Go back to your crack pipe and conspiritard theories. Also using a similar mask as anonymous just reinforces the dickhead nonsense you spout.

National broadcasters in English-speaking developed countries offer at least minimally competent and factually verified coverage of events.

This doesn't answer my question. None of that is specific to CBC or BBC. In fact there are media outlets in the west very unlike CBC and BBC that all of that holds true for, too.

Few Western media outlets were established by acts of parliament in genuine democracies and just as few are held to account by elected representatives of the people. A far greater number are privately owned and are accountable only to shareholders. Many of these, especially in the States, have predictable left-of-centre/right-of-centre editorial lines on practically every issue going and sermonise on every issue going solely to the pre-converted members of their own congregations. As long as the law requires broadcasters and on-line purveyors of opinion and alleged fact to identify themselves, people will be free to offend others and, more importantly it seems, take egregious offence.

I would have thought, a few years ago, that the difference between rubbish and reasonably objective reporting was obvious to most adults. The important difference to a growing number of disturbingly enraged people [or may just plain old disturbed folks] now seems to hinge on whether the story ["politician I hate accused of Satan-worship and war crimes? - must be true!"] conforms to the viewer's or listener's personal demon-infested cosmology. Pig swill is anything the other side has broadcast or believes to be true. Objective reporting is what right-thinkers know is fact. Adults, of course, are merely people old enough to vote. Adulthood's never been an intelligence-based qualification.

If you're looking for "just the facts maa'm" news why not just stick to the AP feeds? That's where the rest of the media is getting their news before they spin it anyway.

I do use the AP feeds.

Am I missing something here? Is this some sort of meme or are you just being an asshole for no reason? Consider
