There are non-biased alternatives and they are podcasts. It’s why they’ve become more popular than msm.on the media -
my point of view is that Fox News and MSNBC are not the real problem. They have a clear point of view (or bias) and anyone with a functioning IQ can understand that, and choose whether or not to watch them.
The problem is that the other traditional media sources have gotten away from straight reporting and gotten into this mish-mash of news, opinion and commentary.
if there was a clear, non-biased or straight-forward alternative to the 'advocacy' media outlets, I think a lot of people would go to those sites.
But, it's gotten harder and harder to find news sites that offer old-fashioned reporting.
and, my feeling is that the real issue is not with "liberal" or "conservative" news - it's with the new school of reporting that emphasizes conflict over context.
with all the coverage over the Infrastructure Bill and the larger spending bill, I bet that less than 10% of the public could correctly offer a factual account of what is included in those bills. the media doesn't care about the content of the bills. all they care about is the horse-race aspect of "which side wins and which side loses."
