This is the definitive place to discuss everything that makes life on & off campus so unique in Central Virginia.

Agreed but that has never really been a thing and has continued to get worse and worse. I sure hope you hold Fox News to the same standard as CNN and MSNBC because they are just as bad, if not worse in SOME ways.

They are about as reliable as CNN at this point.

They do everything from editing their stories to remove racial descriptors from any story descriptions involving minority suspects in crimes, to promoting every SJW cause that is in vogue at the moment.
Sinclair stations tend to be much more conservative. Though, I think you’re criticizing the national news clickbait headlines that don’t worship Trump 100% of the time.
No. It’s the local reporters and their SJW trash on their Facebook page.

I’ll never forget them selectively editing this story:

Versus

Notice the difference?

Care to explain what purpose removing a physical descriptor of a rape suspect would serve?

Journalism (like education) tends to attract a certain personality. They don’t really want to be journalists, they want to be activists.

FOX News is basically White House propaganda these days.

I don’t think you need the “basically” qualifier.

Fox tries to keep mainstream media "as a whole" fair and balanced. You have NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, CBS on the left and then FOX on the right. Tough job but someone got to do it. :lol:

I prefer NPR over all of them. You still have to tolerate some one-sided interviews, but reporting is typically less inflammatory. My elderly father is always pushing NewsMax but I always come up with good excuses for never tuning in.
