I am a conservative and I strongly prefer reading/watching left-leaning news and media to right leaning.

    Me too. I voted for Reagan, Bush and lots of others in the GOP. But I'm tired and embarrassed over the right-wing media's blatant lies. What ever happened to honesty? It seems to have been swallowed by nutty Internet conspiracy theories. The GOP is self-destructing. They're going to have to evolve or die.

    You bring up some excellent points!
    I’m further to the left and have the same take on some of the left leaning media, though believe much of the right has gone further off the rails.

    If there were more reasonable, thinking individuals, speaking out- like you are now, then perhaps this nation may indeed begin to heal- from within.

    Name a news source that doesn't lean left or right. There aren't any. When "news" consisted of a handful of sources (ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR,), we could count on balance and accuracy. When the internet came alive, so did an infinite number of news sources. News became competitive. The pressure to be "first to report" became intense; never mind fact checking or accuracy. The number of viewers matters, not the content of the news. Remember when "breaking news" actually meant breaking news? Now when the Queen of England farts, it's breaking news. Some sources, like Fox, run a continual banner of breaking news across the screen.

    Sometimes I toggle between CNN and Fox. It's easy enough to see that CNN is beating up anything republicans do. Any republican that has had dirt thrown his way is the leading story. Meanwhile they ignore dirty democrat activity. Switch to Fox and you find the reverse. Biden cannot do anything right. The democrats are being naughty. Never mind Matt Gaetz. It's enough to make me puke. Seriously, if anyone can identify a neutral, unbiased news source, I would appreciate it.

    Not sure if you are honest or not, but I got off FOX and OAN after the election. Could not stand their denial and conspiracy theories.
    No longer listen to Michael Savage. Fitting that Rush passed on.
    Still won't make me vote the other way, but I no longer listen to the fearmongering and rationalizations.

    Leopards Ate My Face When I Voted For The Leopards Eating People's Faces Party is a parody subreddit which almost exclusively features content of people regretting their choice of voting for Brexit or Trump.

    I'm a formerly registered Republican, a classic moderate. The Dems seemed to have no sense for foreign affairs or fiscal policy; fp was to satisfy a nonsensical domestic agenda and fiscal policy meant spend as if there was no tomorrow. Well that difference is moot. The GOP administrations since Reagan have built massive federal and budget deficits, way beyond anything the Dems. Foreign policy doesn't exist for either party, they both have their heads in the sand. The GOP under Trump though became scary, in terms of the ass-kissing toward Russia and North Korea, and the stupidity in the Middle East (not that the Dems were much better, Obama and Hillary were idiots). What frightens me is that the GOP really has become the party of crazy cultural conservatives who have little to no understanding of what has made America great.

    Both parties did nothing while the largest corporations laid off everyone, closing US factories and offshoring everything. That's what pisses off the non-college educated white people, even though their too stupid to understand the root cause. They have nothing to look forward to, the middle class is disappearing.

    Agreed. The WSJ and the news magazine, The Economist have the best, most unbiased perspective.

    You are all a bunch of idiots for watching any "news" it's all propaganda for one side or the other. Instead of wasting your time watching propaganda why don't you focus on your career or bettering yourself somehow. Politicians Democrat or Republican don't care about what you think or what you want. And you stupid fucks who think Trump was so terrible are just dumbass sheep that suckle on the teet of cable news. All he did was get elected when it was supposed to be Hillary's turn and the establishment went nuts on both sides of the aisle and you dumbass morons went along with the non stop lies and attacks on him. He didn't do a single fucking thing that hurt you in any way so stfu about him and get a life.

    Both CNN and Fox are pretty pathetic, though I know I'm inadvertently created a false equivalency. Fox News is simply bullshit and management knows it. It isn't news, it's mostly editorial opinion that is designed to make you hate minorities and Democrats in general. CNN is very biased too, though they're far more careful about vetting their stories. The problem with CNN is that once upon a time they were slightly to the left in their reporting, but then the decided to reframe and redesign their shows to be simply "Anti-Fox". That's when they lost credibility; less news, more opinion... just like their hated rival, Fox. Look at the crap CNN airs in the evening, it's just like Fox, one talking head after another, all repeating the same party line over and over.

    What's funny is that international news has disappeared on both, though Fox gives us propaganda about how wonderful Trump was in international relations, and like Trump they ignore Russia raping the former Soviet satellites. In CNN's world, they can never blame Israel for a damn thing, even though they and China run the largest ethnic concentration camps in the world.

    Just stay away from any cable news. Newspaper used to be the bedrock of quality journalism, but the Internet killed them. Now we're stuck with half-witted men who would be insurance salesmen and stupid women who would probably be beauticians if it wasn't for cable news.
