    CNN, oann, FOX --> All as BS as the next. Can't trust one iota of info from any of them.

    I remember about 20 years ago a local news station used to say in their commercial "We bring you the latest unbiased news.." That slogan disappeared fast!

    They should say "If it's not biased, it's not news!"

    OAN is not a news site.

    Everything is debatable I suppose, but what makes you say that? OANN is my fav.

    How are we gonna impeach President Trump for something that Joe Biden people did?

    Trump was impeached for things that he clearly did.

    I know that the "seige on the Capitol" looks like a pot of gold at the end of
    a beautiful liberal rainbow, but many facts don't make it so simple:

    The 2 things that stick out the most:
    1) The planned attack wasn't carried out spontaneously after Trump's speech
    2) Liberal activist arrested

    Not to Lefties. Lefties want to suppress speech (they call it "free speech"). Debate is fine, as long as you accept their viewpoint as true without
    proof or argument.

    Alan doesn't like OANN because OANN won't go with the Leftie Narrative.

    Lefties are fine with free speech. OANN, NewsMax and the like are fine and if people want to watch that then great. Fox has been providing that same service for years and profiting from it.

    If you want to make $$$ on the TV you have to produce something the people will
    buy and that's what Fox, OANN, NewsMax and the like do.

    Alan doesn't like OANN because OANN won't go with the Leftie Narrative.

    I never said I didn't like OANN, I just said it wasn't news.

    OANN is not left or right. Some might call it entertainment but it is not news,
    it's not even good fiction.

    I don't know how stuff works in Canada, but in the USA you can add ABC, CBS, NBC, and even PBS to that list. They are all for-profit news outlets.

    (PBS is a little different because they take their payments under the table.)

    I never said I didn't like OANN, I just said it wasn't news.

    OANN doesn't have editorials or commentary - it's packed full of stories. I don't see much (if any) opinion from them. If you want to call a conservative news outlet "not news," then Fox would fit that description better than OANN.

    Interesting. I never watched OANN long enough to realize they are void of editorial or commentary but full of stories but it makes perfectly good sense.
    If you recall during the early days of the COVID pandemic, there was an OANN reporter who would throw the easiest questions as Trump. Since she was an easy
    target for him, he'd call on her to get "Trump loving questions." Fox, on the other hand, does have some redeaming qualities--their opinion talking heads make me want to laugh when they spout conspiracy theories, alternative facts, and stories I swear they make up while using the bathroom.

    Not News... I like it.

    If you like extreme right concepts and propaganda, you have OANN. I've watched some of their "news" offerings and talking head sessions. OMG, it's like the right jumped off a cliff and resurrected as "Super Right".

    No news station is in-between. They all pick a side.

    "Stop the division" is a joke. The country has always been divided on issues. Now liberal reporters are scrambling to find ways to make it look like they were right about things during the Trump era.

    Yeah, it works that way here too as far as I know. I don't subscribe to any of the conventional ABC, CBS or CBC networks anymore. I'm just not into TV generally.

    OANN is known for it's misinformation and conspiracy theories. That's OK but it
    is not a reliable source of fact based news.

    Fox and NewsMax has operated in much the same way.

    Liberal news stations were right about Trump.

    Conservative news stations were right about Trump.

    It's what and how it was reported that makes the difference.

    Well, FOX pretty much "jumped the shark" some months ago and showed that they were just as bad as the other media outlets.

    But OANN is available from the Internet and several streaming services
    carry it (ex: Klowd TV).

    Biden's been in office for 31 hours. He now has the opportunity to screw things up. Trump, on the other hand, led the country like he does his businesses, horribly.

    Conservatives aren't listening to Tucker Carlson. He flip flops all the time.
    I like the guy, but he's just the FOX equivalent of your Wolf Blitzer.

    Wolf Blitzer lost all my respect when he coined the term, "Breaking News". Now, that's all you hear. Breaking News, in my opinion, is when something horrible, tragic, or disasterous occurs, not when someone stubs their toe on national television.

    Let me show you a better explanation of not reliable:

    CNN is misinforming people right now. Instead of paying any attention the anti-Biden protests in Portland, they are still focused on "Trump racism."

    Talk of Trump's <whateveritis> will start to diminish over time assuming he doesn't continue to stir it up.

    Suppose you're on a road trip to Portland. You've been listening to CNN on Sirius radio the whole way from Canada, and they've been talking about Trump's racism all morning.

    Suddenly you arrive in Portland, and armed idiots are making you get out of your car.

    Suddenly you've come to realize why it's bad that CNN tries to hide the anti-Biden protests.

    Seriously - they've had all day, and they still make no mention of it on their website. It's 9:41PM here and their latest update is: "Fauci prefers working with Biden over Trump."

    Careful traveling into Portland!

    I said. You can decide for yourself what is good/bad, true/lies or
    worth it.

    Let me show you a better explanation of not reliable:

    There is no truth in what is reported on NewsMax. That is unreliable if you want anything that resembles truth.

    There may be some truth in what they report but it is hard to find. I don't tune in anymore.

    CNN is misinforming people right now. Instead of paying any
    attention the anti-Biden protests in Portland, they are still
    focused on "Trump racism."

    CNN is not misinforming anyone. They may not be reporting what goes on in Portland but that is not misinformation.

    Suppose you're on a road trip to Portland. You've been listening to CNN on Sirius radio the whole way from Canada, and they've been talking about Trump's racism all morning.

    If I was on a road trip I would not be listening to CNN. I'd be diggin' some floyd or maybe a little Zep, ya know?

    Suddenly you've come to realize why it's bad that CNN tries to hide the anti-Biden protests.

    I don't think the protests in Portland are all that news worthy.

    I'd be more interested in hearing from people who live in Portland or the surrounding area and hearing from them what is happening in Portland more than CNN.

    Seriously - they've had all day, and they still make no mention of it on their website. It's 9:41PM here and their latest update is: "Fauci prefers working with Biden over Trump."

    I wouldn't hold my breath.

    CNN is not misinforming anyone. They may not be reporting what goes on in Portland but that is not misinformation.

    I always put the news on so I can see what's going on in the world. If they have the Cuomo brothers tickling each other's bellies, then I'll assume that all is well in the world.

    I don't think the protests in Portland are all that news worthy.

    CNN loved the Portland protests during the election, but now that they're protesting against Biden it's not attractive to them anymore.

    of the last year. Biden is not the issue in Portland.

    You're right about that. It seems like there's a group of people making a career out of protesting.

    A few months ago, Lee hinted that the protests were about Trump - like the protests would stop if Trump were gone. I wish he was right about that, but these people are never going to be happy.

    It took them long enough! They dodged that story for as long as they could.

    What do you think about what those protesters were saying?

    There was a young woman complaining about homeless people living in tents
    while there are also houses which are vacant. I guess she wants people to stop selling their homes and start opening them up to the homeless instead? That's hilarious. Let's see Joe fix that one :)

    good way to go about that. They are going to end up with criminal justice issues.

    I agree. But who knows where CNN got those people from - If I were a part of that group, I wouldn't show my face on CNN. They might have been paid actors.

    The young woman may have hurt the cause by inferring that homeowners should open their vacant homes to the homeless. I'm not judging homeless people for their outdoor lifestyles, but they leave disgusting messes behind them. Feces, ants, stinky food containers, smoldering garbage. I don't want them on my
    front yard.

    smash windows, etc. are the idiots.

    I doubt they really have a problem with Biden, but
    maybe trying to put pressure on him to serve the Squad's agenda?

    That's why they will have a problem with Biden. He's part of the Corporate Elite group of the Dem party. They used him because he's a habitual
    liar and would say anything he's told.


    ... Always smile. It makes people wonder what you're up to.
