    That's your opinion nothing more nothing less, which you have a right to express.

    Seriously? You don't believe the media has been dishonest the last year?

    By falsely reporting stories? That's an actual excuse?

    There was far more of that during the election cycle by the right than left especially on the net.

    I'm not convinced that's correct, but for me the gripe is more about certain media networks pretending to be something they're not. The good news is that I think we're seeing the death of mainstream media and moving more toward internet media, where it's more honest in regards to what it is. Next up, the death of universities.

    The problem with the net is you can say whatever you want and people believe it.

    Not an opinion I share. Info Wars, Gary what's his name on YT, they are uninformed morons. More interested clicks than anything else. Anybody that would seriously report that Sandy Hook was a hoax should not show his face.

    Only some people, and that will never change. Every time you and everyone who posts in this forum visits infowars or Buzzfeed we take their articles with a huge grain of salt. We understand that these sites have clear biases, and it makes us better for it. Why is it bad that we recognize bias?

    Is that a threat?

    Also, there are honest and popular news personalities on the internet who openly present their biases. Are you against this?

    A threat? Of course not. Just my personal opinion of them and the job they do.

    NBC - the network you're defending so much, is hosting Alex Jones for a primetime interview this sunday night.

    Like I said, the media is a joke

    And Kelly has been grilled for it too and rightfully so. Shouldn't give Jones the time of day
