  1. It would be interesting to see who owns all of these media outlets and get a take on their political orientation. I think that would give us a better idea of any bias. The newspapers and the media that covered events or the war, desegregation and other major events are not the same entities today as they were twenty, thirty or forty years ago. I have given up watching CNN because it is no longer a news network. It is a political discussion media outlet. Most of their hosts are obnoxious. Don Lemon and Jim Acosta are particularly offensive. The hosts talk over the panelists and the panelists seem to be out for one thing–publicity. It is truly pathetic. Today, I view the BBC as the best vehicle for covering the news. It is sad when a person doesn’t have the spirit to watch the American news media any longer.

    1. I can’t speak to the CNN comment because I don’t watch it (or most television news). I only know that it’s a Trump target which, to be honest, automatically makes me want to defend it. I’m guilty! I’m more of a reader and continue to believe in the journalistic integrity of many major newspapers. I’m talking news – not commenting on their choices of editorial commentary. I also read Britain’s Guardian and rely on NPR radio.
