Wait a minute. There is a school of journalism? Not leftist at all, right?
I can just see a broken window in a house of glass.

The school in general might be more leftist than Berkeley.

So, not objective and critical thinking allowed...The pavement is already predicted where it will end.

You know what, I can possibly see a pulizer only if it's a left winged reporter.

Who was ranting about fake news? Mainstream media / the left. So it is notable that they are now saying it wasn't fake news after all.

However, I would like to see additional analyses of the mainstream media's word count dedicated to Clinton vs. Trump, and the context of the word count.

This is the same problem richk449 is having. They are so disconnected from reality they can't see the shore to swim back to it. The mainstream media IS fake news.

The Democrats, with the help of an overwhelmingly biased and incestuously Democrat-tainted American news media, waged a RELENTLESS and OVERWHELMING war of propaganda (which is what "fake news" is called by literate people other than populist leftists who wallow in disdain for the filthy, ignorant, unwashed masses to whom they lie) against not only Trump but all of Hillary's opponents. There was far, far more "fake news" supporting her than detracting.

This is the Ministry of Truth here calling the opposition propagandists. In itself, this very assertion itself is absurd and the very sort of thing they have become famous for. To say virtually the OPPOSITE of the truth, loudly and with a straight face, it's downright Orwellian.

Moreover, it's not "fake" news if I'd it's true, even if it did come from WikiLeaks or Hillary's illegal hidden email server. Cheating, lying, bribe-taking, law-breaking assholes need to shut the fuck up and get to the back of the bus.

And they need to stop their rampant war of sexual harassment against women, too.

You are smart enough BK to know that you should bother to read the article before commenting. Some selected quotes:

Quote:
What did all these stories talk about? The research team investigated this question, counting sentences that appeared in mainstream media sources and classifying each as detailing one of several Clinton- or Trump-related issues. In particular, they classified each sentence as describing either a scandal (e.g., Clinton’s emails, Trump’s taxes) or a policy issue (Clinton and jobs, Trump and immigration). They found roughly four times as many Clinton-related sentences that described scandals as opposed to policies, whereas Trump-related sentences were one-and-a-half times as likely to be about policy as scandal. Given the sheer number of scandals in which Trump was implicated—sexual assault; the Trump Foundation; Trump University; redlining in his real-estate developments; insulting a Gold Star family; numerous instances of racist, misogynist, and otherwise offensive speech—it is striking that the media devoted more attention to his policies than to his personal failings. Even more striking, the various Clinton-related email scandals—her use of a private email server while secretary of state, as well as the DNC and John Podesta hacks—accounted for more sentences than all of Trump’s scandals combined (65,000 vs. 40,000) and more than twice as many as were devoted to all of her policy positions.


Quote:
In this context, 10 is an interesting figure because it is also the number of front-page stories the Times ran on the Hillary Clinton email scandal in just six days, from October 29 (the day after FBI Director James Comey announced his decision to reopen his investigation of possible wrongdoing by Clinton) through November 3, just five days before the election. When compared with the Times’s overall coverage of the campaign, the intensity of focus on this one issue is extraordinary. To reiterate, in just six days, The New York Times ran as many cover stories about Hillary Clinton’s emails as they did about all policy issues combined in the 69 days leading up to the election (and that does not include the three additional articles on October 18, and November 6 and 7, or the two articles on the emails taken from John Podesta). This intense focus on the email scandal cannot be written off as inconsequential: The Comey incident and its subsequent impact on Clinton’s approval rating among undecided voters could very well have tipped the election.


Quote:
To be clear, we do not believe the the Times’s coverage was worse than other mainstream news organizations, so much as it was typical of a broader failure of mainstream journalism to inform audiences of the very real and consequential issues at stake. In retrospect, it seems clear that the press in general made the mistake of assuming a Clinton victory was inevitable, and were setting themselves as credible critics of the next administration. Possibly this mistake arose from the failure of journalists to get out of their “hermetic bubble.” Possibly it was their misinterpretation of available polling data, which showed all along that a Trump victory, albeit unlikely, was far from inconceivable. These were understandable mistakes, but they were still mistakes. Yet, rather than acknowledging the possible impact their collective failure of imagination could have had on the election outcome, the mainstream news community has instead focused its critical attention everywhere but on themselves: fake news, Russian hackers, technology companies, algorithmic ranking, the alt-right, even on the American public.

So, what's his reaction? What's his response? To frantically guzzle down even more of the same bullshit that misled him the first time and, worse yet, to grab fistfuls more and hold it up like it's Scyentifik Fackts or some kind of amulet of protection! :lol:

Dude. You are tragic.

Truthfulness is a mistake when it produces an outcome that they did not seek? Or they view their role in society to inform the rest how they are to live and think?

The longer this drags out the more people they lose.

the thing they don't mention is that when they "discuss" clinton scandals, they were defending/deflecting for her. when they "discuss" trump scandals, they're sensationalizing it. that's why you have all these lefties who think trump is literally hitler and is going to come pull them from their homes and throw them in concentration camps.

* virtually all "trump inspired hate crimes" were found to be hoaxes, false flags, or lacking evidence that they were done by actual trump supporters (anyone can spray paint trump on a building)
* leftards keep claiming trump is a white supremacist who won't disavow david duke, yet there's a video of trump disavowing david duke, the KKK, and white supremacists, repeatedly over the last 25 years. there is no evidence trump took even a dollar from david duke. hillary, on the other hand, accepted $20m from the government of saudi arabia, which literally throws gays off of buildings, subjugates and persecutes women, and tortures/executes atheists and those who denounce islam. yet according to the media, trump is a KKK supporting white supremacist, and hillary protects women and gay rights.
* hillary is on video calling blacks "superpredators" and her supporters literally say blacks are too stupid and poor to get IDs, yet trump is racist against blacks because reasons.
* hillary is on recorded audio saying they should have rigged a specific election in the middle east and it was dumb not to.
* affirmative action is a racist hate program and has repeatedly been found to actually hurt blacks more than help us. those extra points eventually don't carry over to the rest of life. white males and asians are displaced by minorities of lower qualifications, further increasing the gap between the average white male and the average minority. over time, affirmative action DECREASES minority representation. leftards then use this as justification for more affirmative action, which only pushes it further down the spiral.
* the gays that were "discriminated against by a christian bakery" drove over 100 miles, past 60+ bakeries, including at least 6 muslim bakeries, to get to the first christian bakery that wouldn't bake them a cake. they had stopped at multiple christian bakeries along the way, and when they agreed to make the cake, the gays walked out without filling out an order. they didn't care about getting a wedding cake, and instead were just looking to bait christians. this is literally textbook religious persecution.
* voter ID is so laughably one-sided that the incredible majority of cases resolve in favor of the voter ID requirements. it's practically impossible to participate in modern society without an ID. as long as they make it free for those who can't afford it, and accept standard government IDs, it's totally legit.
* the MSM tried to characterize trump's win in multiple states as russia hacking the election, including a state that didn't even have electronic voting.

and none of the MSM wants to discuss these facts, because they're busy pushing for rebranded communism/socialism.

the left is suffering from hysteria. and instead of malicious KKK style hate, they now spew "i'm holier than thou so you must accept my racism" hate. KKK members hate blacks and persecute us to "save whites" but the left hates blacks and persecutes us claiming they're trying to save us.

Welcome to Idiocracy.

The Experiment had a good run, but you can't fix stupid. At least not in a democracy.

They don't even refer to him as President Trump. It's universally "Trump".

You never heard CNN, NBC, ABC, etc., refer to Obama or even Clinton like that. It's childish, delusional and narcissistic. They are shitbags. Somebody ought to do something.
