Skip to comments.Liberal Media Is Tanking (Free Republic Mentioned)
Posted on 07/20/2012 6:20:35 PM PDT by PingPongChampion
The general consensus amongst most experts and analysts -- even those hired by the mainstream media -- is that there are political biases in mainstream media. Media has been divided into two distinct factions: liberal and conservative. The bad news in recent decades has fallen on the shoulders of the liberal media.
Ratings for CNN have been in steady decline since 2003. Canada's Postmedia has announced major cutbacks that include layoffs and less circulation. Although Postmedia is not often recognized as liberal, it has been known to focus extensively on biased editorials and op-ed pieces in its major newspapers. This strategy has failed to work, even though Postmedia has tried to balance the scale with conservative and liberal viewpoints. Through the success of Fox News, we have learned that media cannot balance politics. When it tries to equally divy up the liberal and conservative expressions, it fails by alienating and vexing both liberals and conservatives. Before long, inaccurate accusations of bias begin to fly.
Media biases first came under serious fire in the late 90's and, in particular, after 9/11 with the surge of Fox News and other conservative media, including websites and radio programs. Fox News was launched in 1996 and has since obliterated all cable news networks in the Neilsen ratings. Fox News continues to acquire a regular audience that exceeds the audience of CNN, MSNBC, and HNN combined.
The more liberal venues, like CNN and MSNBC, have suffered greatly since the emergence of aggressive conservative venues.

I'm going to create the 5-W News! Boring as all get out, but at least you'll know what the story is all about!
You forgot the 'H' ;)
“How,” could be considered speculation! ;-)
Welcome to Free Republic. Nice posting job.
Its a shame that Fox News sucks so bad, I mean, it really is the only alternative. It is the giant among midgets, the fly among maggots.
All the news programs are filtered through the deception of political correctness so none of them are trustworthy, IMO. It’s like listening to TASS of the Soviet Union. No one took it for real.
Even if they wanted to change the mess they are in, they would have to retrain all the reporters to understand that the liberal advocacy filters and ‘news’ they learned to deliver in college, is out the window. They would need to relearn facts from spin, right from wrong and good from evil. The elitist global attitude has to go, too. Liberals are just disgusting, plastic personalities to normal people.
so FR is libertarian anf POLITICO is moddle of the road.
That is a good blog that I will continue to read. Thanks for sharing!
I was pleased to see FR ranked so highly among conservative sites and ranked above the RINO’s at NRO.
Hmmm, when you see it spelled out in front of you, it’s impossible to deny:
You can’t spell RINO without NRO.
