Breitbart is unquestionably biased.

Trouble is, this report is actually 100% factual, as confirmed by the governor herself.

OK then maybe you will accept the Detroit News instead which is where Breitbart got the story from. Here is a quote from the Breitbart article:

"The Detroit News reported Monday that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D) husband exploited her position to urge a dock company to put his boat in the water before Memorial Day weekend, despite strict coronavirus guidelines."

It still is saying it like they KNOW 100% FOR CERTAIN that's what happened. We can speculate but none of us were there so they are making a leap and filling in the blank... that's not exactly ethical...

Restaurants are re-opening on June 8. The governor's husband was probably getting an uncontrollable urge to make a prank phone call to make a fake reservation at the most expensive restaurant in Lansing, and Gretch said, "No, no, we're not going through THAT again."


And it's easy to tell the great pretenders—they've got the broken wings and the flip top fenders

I am not trying to get into a big political argument, except that Whitmer is getting a universal slavish push by every single station.

But ethical conduct, what there was in the 70s-00s, went completely away when stations and networks decided the Trump was an evil so evil they literally make up stories. And once the DNC emails came out showing every network political reporter and producer was conspiring with Hillary, and they not only kept their jobs but were promoted, all the Central Michigan communications grads learned their lessons and are as biased in their reporting to help the party as they possibly can be.

You understand that the 50’s-early 00’s way of doing the news is an anomaly right?

You can't have a democratic representative system where the dissemination of information is limited, by broadcast licenses and government cable system contracts, to democratic party only supporting corporate outlets. Either bring back the fairness doctrine, or break up the media companies

There’s plenty of conservative media out there and nobody is stopping you from viewing, reading or Otherwise jacking off to it. Quit whining. Conservatives killed the fairness doctrine during the Reagan administration. Maybe they should have thought about that first. But that’s where all this right wing media came from so maybe they are pleased as punch with the result.

I don't want to get in an internet slap fight, but this is simply not true. There is not one Michigan TV channel that is not democratic party. Notwithstanding the JOA, the Freep owns the News and uses them as a sock puppet. Booth newspapers used to lean slightly right, but that went away in 2000.

Your resorting to sex insults means you know it, too.

Talk radio and the internet as well as FOX News. You are mentioning all of this old school media like it’s still relevant... cable and the internet is where it’s at my friend. There’s lots of Conservative media available. No shortage. It can even be hard to get away from at times.

The idea that everybody is “Democratic Party” is kind of funny. The Detroit News I wouldn’t classify as a Democratic outfit. Nor WJR or 92.3 (The Salem Communications thing). Just because they won’t allow a distorted view of the universe into play isn’t so much indicative of bias as it is that the ideas presented just aren’t very good and not all ideas are equal. Should we give equal time to flat earthers and let the people decide?

Prior to the Fairness Doctrines invention in the 30’s, newspapers (Really the main media at the time) were with one party or the other and openly supported and attacked candidates. This is not some new revelation that’s never existed before. It’s a return to normal.

Yes, but there were a number of different outlets before broadcast. With corporate media and government broadcast licenses and cable agreements, it is only one side.

Your point that I could listen to talk radio or fox to hear about local news is not a good one.

You are seriously claiming the Detroit News is not a tool of the Freep? Typical news slants there: "Gosh darn it, Trump is evil. Whitmer is awesome and great, but we wish she would wear more power red. All power and glory to the new ruler of Oakland County!"
