Sunday morning news shows

Earlier this week someone posted a thread and the posed the question on whether the US could ever end this divisiveness thatís around today. People correctly pointed to Rush Limbaugh, Drudge, Breibert, FoxNews, Twitter, etc.... as the reasons for the polarization. But as I am watching this morningís Sunday morning news shows, I realize they are to blame, too. Yes, they arenít biased as the aforementioned other media, but their problem is this that they try to hard not to be bias. They legitimize the right wings argument by playing the ďboth sidesĒ thing, they donít do good follow up questions when they have a conservative guest on, and they donít call them out on their lies.

1. If Trump said the sun rose in the west, the main steam media would try to present evidence

that it does. Maybe an expert from the Heritage Foundation, you have to be fair you know.

2. They are not trying too hard they

are not trying at all. They know the both sides is BS . They are afraid they won't be invited to the white house anymore and all the perks that go with it. So they are ok being the enemy of the people.

3. Access and horses

The standard excuse is that they need access to both sides so allowing both points of view is necessary. The real reason is that they need two horses in the race or no one will watch.

4. Both sides have their outlets - fox for the right, msnbc cnn for the left.

People watch and hear mostly what agrees with them, and get pissed and argue against t the negative.

Division will not end cause everything is political, and many get brainwashed that THEY are on the right side.

Ah well.
