Even a cursory view over the mainstream media shows how crap all of them are. None of the "journalists" or analysts seems to have read or understood the Constitution, Bill of Rights, or been able to contextualize any US foreign policy from WW2 til today (and I say that as a fairly MotR centrist).

Apple siding with any of these clowns in the media circus won't inform a single reader / viewer, but will instead be to promote whatever viewpoint is beneficial to Apple and just get everyone riled up in their echo chamber (left or right - equally insular)

Didn’t ABC news just get busted For fake war footage shot at a range in Kentucky?

state run media.

I have found it helps to read news only, and then throw out all the adjectives. It is amazing how little actual information gets reported and how much is opinion.

aren’t journalists supposed to be objective?
