7. Here's why this is so fucked up

Actual journalist who write stories backed by facts and empirical data, are relentless attacked as being "left-wing biased", because, Oh I don't know, they voted for a Democrat once.

So actual "real" and "true" news is repeatedly slammed as "liberally biased".

To counter that attack of bias, papers, networks, magazines, etc., hire "right-wing nut-jobs" to provide "balance".

See how that works? In almost every case, you get truth, "balanced" by extreme Reich-wing propaganda. See what's missing??

There is NO "extreme" left-wing view at all.

Do you ever see Hate Radio putting an extreme left-winger on to "balance" their bias?

Didn't think so.
