Fake news and trusted sources

Special for the few who say BBC is a crap news source. Here are the results of a Pew Research poll on trusted news sources. Check out where BBC is.



If the image isn't clear enough on your monitor, the source is:

First off Hannity and The Daily Show and the like are not News. They are entertainment. They should not even be on this list.

Second the top part of the list has news programs that have very modest viewership compared to Fox. You can roll up ABC, NBC and CBS together and they will not equal Fox. So it make the list look visually heavy on top.

Thirdly, I hate these surveys. I looked at the methodology of this survey. Of those surveyed 38% identified as Liberal or mostly and only 26% identified as Conservative or mostly. Yes I know it is weighted but why not seek out a real 50/50 balance as that would more closely reflect reality?

What this all really points out is the country is split down the middle. What this survey does not convey is it is evenly split down the middle.

I think this adjusted chart is more reflective of the truth. As the survey says and overwhelming majority of conservatives get their info from Fox News.

BBC is shit. They will monitor you via (Cookies and ISP Addy) and report you when you visit the website and type anything they find offensive to your employer, wife, doctor, police etc....


And as I see Euro trash foreign tourism dollars drop, it is no wonder with the threat of terrorism and insane thought police policy and regulations.

Here is the UK national emblem:

Most liberal people want more trusted news from the most trusted news outlet team of journalists, photographers, and cameramen. Conservatives? They say news outlets are distrusted and terrible because what they want is different news that are real like The Daily Show, FOX News and Breitbart.

Some years ago I was employed in a prominent business in my town that was in financial difficulty. It went on for a long time with a great deal of press coverage over tax issues and the city's involvement with the business. Having first hand knowledge of the accounting in the business I can tell you that most of the time the press reports contained substantial factual errors.

Never trust the press, any press.
Thanks from caconservative and Toefoot

Here's what I don't get. When I am watching/reading MSM (those listed above), the stories include quotes, video, tweets, etc. How can those be considered unreliable? Fake? When the president is quoted and that quote is splashed across the screen HOW is that untrustworthy?? AND when multiple sources report the SAME story--the same video/tweets/quotes---how is that an error?
We keep hearing about the fake news, but evidence IS PROVIDED.
Having said that, I understand that some news stories are paired with pundit discussion, which is OPINION. Everyone knows that. AND when stories are reported as 'a source close to the W.H.', it's questionable.
But, maybe someone can explain to me how quotes are NOT facts (if context is included).

Its not fake news its biased news. All stories are weighted negative to the Republicans and weighted positively to the Democrats. Big time.
