Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, March 06, 2019

On 6 February 2017, a website of uncertain origin named "The Tennessee Star" was born. At the time, it was unclear who funded or operated this "local newspaper," which was largely filled with freely licensed content from organizations tied to conservative mega-donors. After some prodding by Politico in early 2018, the Tennessee Star revealed its primary architects to be three Tea Party-connected conservative activists: Michael Patrick Leahy, Steve Gill, and Christina Botteri.
Now, a Snopes investigation reveals in detail how these activists used the appearance of local newspapers to promote messages paid for or supported by outside or undisclosed interests.

"The MSM and its supporters need to do some introspection and what we mostly get is rationalization."

followed by the rationalization

"Their business model relies heavily on their on credibility. If they are increasingly being viewed as untrustworthy the smart thing to do would be to look inward and try and figure out why. Instead, when pressed most in the media rationalize, make excuses and brush it off."

"What I feel is undeniable is that the MSM is in fact incredibly biased and it shows in what gets reported, what doesn't get reported, how the news is reported, what gets emphasized/de-emphasized, etc."

Quick, someone bring up Chomsky

I'm fairly certain that every closely held belief you have is the result of being lied to. So start looking there.

The DR "conservatives" are such -------

They are afraid to address a topic they so often assert makes them victims of the "left"

But here is actual evidence of the systematic undermining of the Free Press, and all they can do is yammer on about AOC and "pinkos"

We'll shut this down when the MSM does something about that 'Weekend Update' fake news broadcast, which appears on that Saturday Night show. Those people should be investigated, arrested, deported and, and...
