Although I definitely lean to the left, I have to agree that "public television" is far from neutral. It has pretty much been hijacked by the far left.

On the other side, the biggest "News" network in the US, FoxNews, is in fact not a news station, except for a little bit now and then. It is a non-stop opinion platform - and as such, has no accountability for spreading misinformation.   It is, after all, just their opinion.

This has been going on long enough where, with entire generation(s) having been brought up as with this as their reality, they gladly swallow their own puke - it's what they want to hear so it must be true. They new all along!

In various forms, opposing opinions are just labeled "fake news" with any number of variations on the name, but in all cases, making ignoring unpleasant truths that much easier.

New and Information is now firmly in the Cult category.

We vs They continues to become, ever more so, WE vs THEY.
