It is a tough line! I keep hearing AAAUUUUURRRRRGGGH in my head instead!
Well I’m married and have a few close friends so between them, step children and some other family there is usually someone to go watch something with to achieve your purposes, and while I have a decent TV and sound system – I do enjoy the big screen and theater sound for the immersive experience.
Maybe you should consider that they were simply quoting someone who actually left MSNBC as an employee for those reasons as a way of getting to source information for this stuff. I’m not sure why you think I have some sort of connection to something like Breitbart – I’m simply looking for raw news – I don’t need someone interpreting it for me, certainly not you.
… and that would be the definition of confirmation bias. Which, since he actually is someone who understands the term uses IF in the conclusion statement.
Yes – Fox came out with this recently, but this has been true for some time with the other networks – here is just one example: https://www.lifenews.com/2020/08/04/msnbc-producer-quits-because-its-liberal-fake-news-we-are-a-cancer-and-there-is-no-cure/
Could be. There are a number of possible causes, and I’m sure in another few years we will have people with the time to dig into it and do some peer reviewed published work.
As it turns out – this is more or less exactly what the DNC has done for years – we get their stuff all the time. Why on earth would anyone trust the objectiveness of MSNBC? Their editorial staff has gone on record as having no intention of being objective.
Frank Luntz still does not represent the opinions of typical run of the mill conservative Republicans. In the broadest sense polling from 2016 more or less told everyone on the conservative side that the message that resonated was drain the swamp, and stop illegal immigration along with a few of the approximately agreed to Tea Party points. Luntz was one of many pollsters that was wrong in his predictions of 2016s elections – just like all of the others. He is an insider talking about other insiders and not talking about voters.
Someone has to pull the load …
Given this broad and largely incorrect view of what “conservative Republicans believe” it is in no way surprising that the masses would be distrustful of how they are represented in the media.
