Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, February 18, 2019

In a recent interview, CBS News Foreign Correspondent Lara Logan critiqued the international "liberal" media while holding up outlets like Breitbart as the opposite side of the coin. Logan lamented that voter registration among journalists shows that the media is out of balance, and said she believes the press is tinged by sameness of opinion. Logan continued by saying President Donald Trump‘s press coverage is a case and point of how the media produces a "distortion" by boiling things down so that "there's no grey. It's all one way. If it doesn't match real life, something's wrong."

In support, Logan citing recent comments from former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, saying the media has "abandoned our pretense, or at least the effort to be objective." As she argued that media sources on the left and right regularly push their preferred narratives and "do terrible things," Logan determined that the weight of the liberal media overwhelms "the other side."

Strange, most people think its way too conservative.

Logan determined that the weight of the liberal media overwhelms "the other side."

Strange, the same determination every conservative media consumer makes.

Just compare the way the mainstream media treated Sanders compared to trump. That's a perfect example of how the MSM has a conservative slant.

So this nut is mad because networks don't let trump's endless lies go unchecked? Damn conservatives and their disgust of facts.

She's angling for A Fox News spot once Shep Smith or Chris Wallace gets canned for them calling out Trump and the alt-right on their lies and BS.

@#1 ... She's not wrong on any of her points....

She said, "the media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just the U.S."

She's right. The Pew Institute agreed with her years ago.

The important point she omitted, however, is that facts have a liberal bias. :)

That site has a collection of absolute loons posting about the stories. Truly sick, demented, wackos. I popped around reading the comments, and it's really depressing how every post is by some horrifically stupid human. I assume they're human.

The good news is they make this place look like it's filled with erudite posters.

Well, yeah.

That seems to be "conservative" news nowadays.

For me, I object to the hijacking of the adjective "conservative" but I'm just one tiny voice among billions.

I do remember the days, not so long ago, when conservatives on TV educated me, and did not make me feel that by listening to them my brain was draining out of my ears.

It's nice to see someone within the MSM acknowledge reality.

Donald Trump is a criminal, not a victim. NOBIA is a Russian, not an American.

You and I are very erudite, although I have my doubts about you.
