Nationalist Posted April 26, 2022 Report Share Posted April 26, 2022 @Michael Hardner We discussed the differences between FOX News and CNN a few days ago. I said I'd watch both, and have. This thread...I hope...will be a discussion and a search...of sorts...for real truth. Cold facts to issues and events. Participate or don't... I watched CNN fairly regularly through the 90's and 2000's. I worked for a Canadian embassy in Europe in the 90's and either CNN or CBC ran constantly in the offices. I remember first seeing Tucker Carlson on CNN...in a bow tie. In 1996 FOX News came into being. It was brash and obviously biased toward the Republican party and conservatism. A lot o' water under the bridge since then. CBC meant only 1 thing to me for my entire life...Hockey Night In Canada. They blew that and I found no more use for them. But FOX and CNN...lately. Over the last couple weeks I've seen CNN play the Russian Harp primarily. Endless interviews with Ukrainian mothers who speak English...pictures of reported Russian bombing and atrocities...the last few days, lots of Elon Musk and Twitter. Oddly enough, little to nothing about Hunter and his fabled laptop. On FOX I see lots of the Russian Harp as well. But I also get a small whiff of Russian propaganda as well. Statements from Russian notaries and such. An interesting view point. I see a lot of Hunter's fabled laptop and talk of Joe's possible...if not obvious...participation and profiting. They still hammer on the border pretty hard daily and report on urban violence quite a bit. All in all, I find FOX present a more diverse selection of subjects than does CNN. I also find the CNN personalities use terms like "potentially", "could be", and likes to play the obligatory race card regularly. They flat out deny the very existence of CRT and fell for the whole "Don't say gay" horseshit. On the other side of the fence...Hannity is not enamoured with Joe Biden what so ever...and its bloody obvious. His disdain for Biden is as intense as Don leMon's hatred of Trump. My analysis leads me to conclude that FOX News provides a superior product, if only because of the wider array of issues they report on and discuss. I have to admit as well that, while both of these MSM news channels have obvious biases, CNN tends to lie a little too much and a little too often for my liking. So...what about the "alternative" news sources? I sometimes watch Czech news with my wife. Pretty interesting opinions over seas people. How do you view the MSM news? Do you believe anything any of them say? How do you get you news fix and what sources really "nail it"? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
