      Indifferent media? You gotta be kidding. Gone are the days of deadpan Walter Cronkite. On all media fronts, there's plenty of emotion imparted. Whether it's local or national, it's never difficult anymore to tell whether a TV anchor or reporter is approving or disapproving -- quite often, their judgment is clearly on display, and meant to be. Same is true in print media, too. Scorn or praise, understatement to hyperbole, it all comes through.

      And no, I don't mean just the wingnuts; I include the heralded "fact-based" mainstream news outlets. That's all I'm talking about, in fact -- the wingnuts don't even belong in a conversation about news media. Some mainstream outlets use voices with less of an edge to them, but hardly anybody is blameless.

        I have a few "media bias charts" that I have posted in the past, but people like you would say the charts themselves are biased.
        You can''t win.

          Good grief.

          I don't flat-out disregard those charts, but the problems come when they're held up as the big argument-winner. It's kind of like people nowadays throwing the word "science" into their arguments -- i.e. "Well, science says ...," completely ignoring the fact that within Science there are many different theories, approaches, schools of thought, etc., and naturally a lot of disagreement, too. Argument-winners are ham-handed, even rather childish. They're for people who join discussions not to explore a topic but to feel moral superiority.

          The charts themselves aren't necessarily inaccurate, but the very idea of a chart presents the fallacy that the whole thing can be encapsulated, when it really just can't. And even as I see the correctness of the rankings or whatever, I still think they do more harm than good when people are discussing issues. I mean, look at what you just did: We weren't even really talking about bias -- that's been hashed out on here many, many times. I was talking about how the news is delivered -- tone, demeanor, etc., regardless of left, middle, or right -- but as soon as you felt disagreed with, out comes The Chart!

              .....and Rep L Cheney (R?-WY) just torpedoed her own submarine.
              Guess she forgot that you can't ride two horses at one time!

              Just because she's "going after" Trump, doesn't mean she can support a SCOTUS decision!

                  “Today is a giant step forward for our country as, after decades, Roe is finally overturned. Folks, after almost 50 years of standing up for unborn babies, our prayers have been answered. The fight continues, though. Here in Alabama, we have been preparing for this day when the decision-making authority on abortion is rightfully returned to the states. In 2019, I was proud to sign into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, which is one of the strongest bans on abortion in the country. Currently, there is a halt by a federal judge on the enforcement of that law, but now that Roe is overturned, the state will immediately ask the court to strike down any legal barriers to enforcing this law. As I noted when I signed the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, every life is precious and a sacred gift from God. We will not relent in our efforts. Ensuring this 2019 law can be enforced is the next and very critical step to protecting our babies. This is a historic day, and I could not be more proud as a governor, a Christian and a woman to see this misguided and detrimental decision overturned.” – Governor Kay Ivey

                    The media CAN NOT report the news without putting "their" (the newscaster) spin on things.

                      When performed by:

                      Rep Al Green (D-TX)
                      Rep Maxine Waters (D-CA)
                      Rep AOC (D-NY)

                      "sedition" is perfectly acceptable?

                      Telling the public to "take to the streets" isn't "inciting a riot" if you're a (d)?

                      Good to know!
