Liberal bias in media

My main email is a Yahoo address and because of that I go there every day. I scroll down the main page and check out the headlines when I go there. Since the election there has been an obvious bias in the articles they have posted. Some of the sources they have posted ten to be exceedingly biased. Three of those sources are The Cheat Sheet, HuffPo and Newsweek. This morning I couldn't help but notice there were a LOT of articles by those particular outlets and decided to count them. There were 33 from the Cheat Shit, 13 by HuffPo (I'm pretty sure it is usually more.) and 16 by News Weak. Add in the multiple other anti-Trump/pro-SJW articles and you can count on at least half of the page being filled with that drivel and half of what's left being nonsense lifestyle type wastes of time.

On most of the articles I click on I tend to skip down to the comments just to see what people are saying. Most of them tend to agree with me and are talking all grades of shit about Yahoo and the "writers" of the articles.

I have to wonder how Yahoo is still in business.

If this had not been my main email address for so many years I would move on.

And might still...

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

In all fairness, they did have three articles from Fox.

Nah. I can't remember what they were, but they were not political articles. Not all of the articles I mentioned above were. A couple were lifestyle/sjw type articles. But most of them were bashing Trump. Bashing Trump isn't the real meaning of my op. I was more referring to the obvious bias and the propaganda nature of media.

Might not of been the meaning of your op but that's what is going on on yahoo
..ever since the election yahoo has been nothing but constantly trump hating.
..other articles are of crazies ..who crazies killed or whatnot/ both worldwize or in personal lives
..then dumb political, medical or science articles
&
one day coffee is good for you..next day it isn't goes their articles
black matter exists..next day it doesn't goes their articles

Chaos reigns on yahoo media news (and elsewhere news outlets)

Really good subject and bias is huge problem with the major players - they are promoting ideas that agree with their agenda - gone are the days of finding what you are looking for, you will see what they want you to see and steered away from that which does not fit in with their dubious agenda.

I may be wrong but there seems to be "LESS" liberal bias in media then there use to be if one considers that pretty much ALL sources of media used to be of the "liberal" kind.

I don't know know when the Fox channel and Fox news first started but before that time everyone knew that both the media and most academic institutions where either a little bit biased toward the left or very biased toward liberal values.

Exactly, it's pervasive with all major players, so don't single out one.
