    become just an extension of the democrat party? I'm watching nbc nightly news and it's all trump, coming up: tom broklaw with a piece that shows the historical risk of marginalizing A group of people (Muslims).

    It's always been bad. I feel like I don't watch enough televised news to know if/when it got progressively worse. I grew up being told that shit was biased and used to read newspapers. That died a few years back for me. I want to say it's tied to greedy fucks chasing a dollar. Ratings are all they give a fuck about, and they never get punished for behaving poorly so they have no incentive to start now.

    I take the nightly news as what it really is, entertainment.

    It got worse with the 24 hour news channels.
    They have to scramble to come up with content in between news worthy events.

    And now with so many news channels, people can choose the slant that agrees with their political ideology.
    So many people (either party) rarely hear a dissenting opinion.

    WAY back during the time of Edward R Murrow, I think they did attempt to be politically neutral.

    But that was before my time.

    how is it that the news is an extension of the democratic party when they devote most of the newscast to the LEADER of the republican candidates running for president?

    Trump is blowing up the powers that be in our country, the ones that have sold this country out time and time again.

    They are freaking out. They don't know how to stop Trump. He keeps outsmarting them and they're terrified he could win and put a stop to their selling out of the nation :jj:
