Good Day World!
There’s three things you seldom see in our mass media/social media.
In a nutshell:
1) Unbiased reporting.
2) The whole story.
3) and, management’s agenda.
About #1) To accurately identify different types of bias, you should be aware of the issues of the day, and the liberal and conservative perspectives on each issue.
A recent study shows that headlines can have more of an effect on a reader’s interpretation of an article than the text in the article itself – even if the whole article is read.
When it comes to our government we seldom – if ever – get to hear the whole story. For example, check out this video: OPM Hack, ‘do we have the whole story?’
The only thing we can absolutely count on is to take whatever our government says with a grain of salt. Then research, and verify.
On management agendas; anyone with even a shred of common sense can watch just a handful of Fox News shows and see that the entire channel is nothing more than a propaganda mechanism for the Republican party.
Pundifact found Fox News to have only told the truth 18 percent (15 of 83) of the time for the statements they checked. And even of that 18 percent, only 8 percent of what they said was completely “True.” The other 10 percent was rated as “Mostly True.”
It isn’t just Fox News either folks. MSNBC and CNN distort (and select) news items to fit their management agendas which are obviously liberal.
Time for me to walk on down the road…
