What if they're controlled by aliens???

Aren't there rightward leaning media outlets as well?
(The truthful answer to that is YES)
So wouldn't they report if the other side was pulling a fast one with the facts?
Just like TODAY, the left ones report if the right leaning media outlets are pulling a fast one with the facts?

I'd rather deal with facts over conjecture and fear.

It seems that you're not really afraid of "fact-checking" as much as you are a monolithic fear of "the media". Buying into proclamations of fear and outrage over a made up scenario.

If one compares the amount of lies pumped out of our Oval Office by Trump and compare it to the lies on the mainstream media, Trump is a pathological liar. That concerns me much more than your media boogey-man story.

Facts do not "differ". People may spin something so they APPEAR to differ. If two sources report on the same event and the reports differ then at least one of those sources (and maybe both) are either lying, omitting or spinning about something. What we need to be able to do is determine which it is. To think that source A "always lies" and source B is "always truthful" and then decide which you are going to believe without investigating on your own that is almost 50% of what the arguments on DTT are about.
I just wanted to see that repeated...

I hope this becomes a new and lasting trend for all news outlets, for all politicians.
I saw on Yahoo News that Trump barred any news station on FDA TV's except for Fox News. All FDA televisions have to be tuned to Fox News and nothing else. That sounds draconian to me and if I worked there would sneak in my private and small TV and tune it to CNN out of pure spite.
Thanks from Hollywood

Way over the heads of you sheeple.
You have a keen eye for the obvious

At FDA, TVs now turned to Fox News and can't be switched - CBS News

Radio Hanoi played hard rock but was illegal, Radio Saigon played soft rock and legal. However, I had a private radio and changed the insides and could listen to Radio Hanoi and had the knowledge to put it on the 1MC loudspeakers which went everywhere on the ship. Nothing can be made sailor proof.
Thanks from foundit66 and Hollywood

When will you boys learn that just saying something (in a firm and convincingly authorative tone of voice) does NOT make it true, no matter how many times you repeat it?

You kids just kill me at times!

I think it says something interesting when the right wants to attack fact checking in general...
And the fact that the right believes lying is a First Amendment right.

Why would you attack ANYTHING that would try to eliminate the lies in politics?
