Fox News is “liar television” and often isn’t “news” at all. When I watch/listen to PBS, CNN or MSNBC or any other mainstream news source, I don’t get the feeling that I’m being lied to incessantly or manipulated. A lot of Americans, but a strict minority at the moment) would say the opposite, but this is my point of view. As the man (above) said, all news sources are going to have some kind of point of view that Imay or may not agree with in whole or in part. I can say with absolute certainty (because I’m old and have been around a long time) that very few people criticized the national news until Fox showed up and tilted the table top. That’s a fact.I think this undersells the anomaly Trump is. Bush was widely critisised but arguably not to the extend of Trump and I think him at least trying to act like a profesional had a lot to do with that. It should also be noted that mainstream media is more of a meme than an actual thing. To most critics it means leftist, anti Trump, pro Europe and all that stuff but things like Fox News or the British news papers aren't any less mainstream. Most media outlets do lean to one way or the other but this is exactly why its weird to just consider it one big entity. Fox news isn't the same as CNN and the Sun isn't the same as the Volkskrant.
