LOL, all news outlets are biased. Can anyone name a single news outlet without a political agenda?


The challenge is separating the news from the commentary. All of the mainstream media outlets, including Fox and CNN, have good unbiased reporting on their NEWS programs...however most of the airtime is filled with "commentary" which does tend to be slanted one way or the other.

Too many folks think on-air celebs like Chris Cuomo or Sean Hannity are delivering the news...they are NOT...they are commenting on the news.


And much of the time when reporting the news, they are ALL bending the truth to fit the agenda... either Right OR Left

The agenda has always been ratings and profits. True, false, right, left, center, is just the method to get the ratings up.

We just returned from a trip in our MOHO. We left on Christmas Day and returned on the 17th. We headed south for some warmth, spent some time in NOLA. They have a mask mandate when "in public". About 95% of the people on the streets and 98% of people inside the stores had on masks. There were signs all around stating the the city had a mask mandate in place. Most people abided by that. While in a couple of stores (didn't go in many), if someone walked in without a mask, the owner/employee would ask for masks to be worn. I saw some people leave instead.

Note that it says SHOULD wear masks, doesn't say MUST wear masks.

What is quoted above does not read like a mandate. Reads like a suggestion.

Mask are "required" on federal property.

I agree in citing the original source (I usually do), but to suggest one should discount the value of the news reporting because of a perceived bias...lol, ignores the fact that today, all news outlets are biased. They all subscribe to "click bait" (news reporting based on popularity and acceptance by their base/audience/customers).


Agreed!

Anyone old enough to remember Two Newspaper Towns will already be extremely familiar with bias.

We learned a long time ago to apply some critical thinking skills.

One thing that's gone wrong is that there's little distinction between real news and what used to be called an Op/Ed piece. IMHO Fox has led the pack when it comes to mixing true news (e.g. Wallace) with Entertainment (Hannity). But MSNBC and CNN are following suite unfortunately.

This thread is humorous. I agree with those that say everyplace already has a mask mandate, so this is all just for the cameras.

Do we have to wear masks while camping in a Walmart parking lot? while dumping our grey water? lol

The favorite pass time of far too many now is conspicuous virtue signaling their own “goodness” while shaming all others who don’t meet their standards. Anyone below their level of agitation is judged to be ”Not taking this seriously enough”.

Have you noticed that some have taken to wearing two masks; a disposable mask under a cloth mask???

Does that mean all of us who just wear one mask are “bad people” who just aren’t taking this seriously enough? There’s always going to be somebody who’s more squirmy than you are.

Just wear a **** mask when you encounter others or enter a public building. Quit thinking only about yourselves. This is why this problem has become as large as it is. I promise it won't kill you to help by wearing a mask for a few minutes every now and then. I promise you won't be less of a man (or woman).



X's a million! lol! But seriously this is the best way!

"Great way to escape all the controversy today as a lot of work went into this movie. It starts with a guy who wants to go camping flying out on a fuel guzzling commercial flight."

Well said Covered Wagon. Cheers
Depending upon multiple variables, commercial airliners get between 45 and 75 passenger miles per gallon of fuel. If the guy was going camping alone, or even with one or two additional people, taking a plane was definitely more fuel efficient than driving an RV or even a big SUV.
