Exactly Christian. There was a time in this country when you 'fed' the news primarily by one of three news organizations, ABC, NBC, CBS, or by the newspaper. The thing is, you didn't know the politics of the person reporting and they did a darn good job of keeping their biases out of it. That has changed dramatically. ABC, NBC, CBS, and the newspapers are all riddled with hacks who insert their opinions, mostly on the left. That is what drove people to the likes of Fox and Breitbart. Now we have alternate realities out there. It's scary.
Lately I have been watching OAN as a source of what is actually going on in the world. I look at CNN and see the same things being reported on as I saw six month ago. I am sure stuff has changed in the past six month. OAN I have found is doing well at keeping the opinions out of the news and telling us the facts.
Is there a way to bring that objectivity back to the North American news? I see that even local news is being co-opted by Sinclair Broadcasting and pushing mandatory stories on those local news stations that people have trusted for years. It seems to be getting worse and not better. All of this brings about a perfect storm to create a U.S. Government that exists now.
