Do You Feel Like Everything That You See on CBC and CNN is 100% Legitimate?

In your previous post you said "I doubt it's [the MSM] honest to a tee", now you're claiming to be a charter member of the "MSM is bullshit" club? Huh?

No, I can simply take the news with a grain of salt.

I have a patch in that club. I'm the chief cook & bottle washer, secretary and the enforcer.

Your beliefs have you instead of the other way around.

FYI there are less vaccine passport carriers in this group than there are rabbis in hezbollah.

I'm willing to bet more people in this group carry fake passports just out of sheer spite.

And they repeat false stories of climate change that achieve scare mongering click bait status as well.

 

The question to ask is what does objectivity look like, and how do we achieve it.

Your post is an example of how there can be no objectivity.

You believe you are objective portraying the climate change stories as "false"  while in reality you are being totally subjective, ignoring daily reports from all parts of the world that prove you wrong.

objectivity requires a baseline consensus

due to the incendiary effect of "Social Media"

the consensus in the Western World has completely broken down

it is in effect like a holy war now

Shia v. Sunni in Iraq

Protestant v. Catholic in Ulster

we are in an epoch similar to the Thirty Years War

the Western World is succumbing to a schism

like the one which has destroyed the Muslim World

we haven't been at a place in the West like this

since the inception of the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648

thus is the institution which is collapsing here

the Westphalian Nation State itself

I know that there are a lot of people here ( @Michael Hardner, @dialamah, @eyeball, @herbie, @Aristides, etc) who feel like CNN and CBC/CTV are very reliable news sources, and that everything on Fox News is BS, but I wonder if any of you diehard leftists here can think of a time when you ever really questioned the overall integrity of a story that you saw on CNN, CBC, or CTV? Are there any stories that you saw there which look bad now, with the benefit of hindsight?

In your own words, what's the worst piece of journalism that you ever saw on the leftist news channels? 

I don't view Hardner & Eyeball as being in the same class as those others

Hardner & Eyeball are old school Liberal & NDP

I just don't think they realize that those two parties have been captured by something evil

and I am not a Conservative

the Conservatives have been captured by the same evil

none the less, I have a lot of time for Hardner & Eyeball

because at the end of the day, I think they have good faith

I think they are naive, and perhaps misguided

but I don't think they are evil, I don't think they have been captured as younger leftists have been

I haven't voted for a Liberal in over 40 years. I vote Green if at all.

They're captured by favoured interests is all. That's too mundane to be evil...stupid is more like it.

CBC yes. If the NDP is calling it a right wing pulpit and the CPC calles it a left wing propoganda organ, it must be hitting the mark. 

CNN, don't know. I don't watch it.

we are still diametrically opposed ideoloigcally

but I don't view you as being a woke lunatic sock puppet troll

you're just behind the times, you haven't grasped who the Kneedippers & Greens are serving

you are the one serving the corporate interests & elites against the working classes now

middle ground fallacy, argument to moderation

thinking the CBC is 100% legitimate is comically stupid

Like living in the past behind the times?  I thought that was a conservative trait.

So space aliens...Satan...the Amish...Commies? Of course the latter goes without saying. I'm pretty sure whoever the heck they are it's probably caused you to lose your grasp.

Oh wtf...humour me, who?
