    Broadcast news was my bÍte noire before I watched it making its journey from the fax machines to the news trucks. I remember once asking a local station manager if he could do an investigative piece and was told they didn't have investigative reporters. True story.

    Choose better newspapers.

        We know that a very WIDE range of media will totally ignore issues that are not in line with the leftist narrative. Therefore, to get a better perspective, it makes sense to check sources that will report things that happened that expose the leftist narrative for what it is.

        While people can get all alarmed that somebody gets a story from Fox News or wherever - it often can't be disputed that what they chose to cover (and the MSM totally ignored) actually DID happen.

        Better, however, to howl "FOX NEWS!!!!!"
        The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

          There are no more "investigative journalists" in the MSM who go after the FACTS regardless of the impact on one political party or another.

            When Democrats are president is when the freaking National Inquirer breaks some of the biggest stories of the year.

              Today what passes for investigative reporting is repeating what was published in another paper or trawling through twitter posts looking for something interesting.

                We've been here before, you lying liar. I choose the best source available because I want to know the truth, whether it's comfortable to me or not. You choose crap, yeah, like the Daily Mail, because it supports your lies, and then attack the fact checkers for busting you on them.

                  That's what your propaganda outlets want you to think, because if you ever stop believing it, they'll go out of business.

                    Well, again, thanks for your very civil and respectful comments.

                    Can you please name your three top "investigative journalists" in the MSM, Jesse?
                    For sake of discussion, let's say that "investigative journalist" means, like I said, somebody who goes hard after the facts, regardless of who or what it impacts.
                    If you'd like to offer a different definition, please feel free to do so.

                    Thanks

                        How do you know you're right and we're wrong, Jesse? How do you know that it's not YOU who's the baddie?
