I'd love to hear what people interested in this topic think. I personally don't believe in a liberal media, in fact, I'm pretty much to the point that when people start talking about a "liberal media," I wonder if they have downs syndrome. Now, I don't feel the media is exactly "Republican" either (except for, say, Fox News)... I feel that the media is just straight up-capitalistic (even Fox News was created by a guy from Australia whose main concern is making money, not being a Republican American). To me, the media doesn't care about sincerely trying to report the truth as much as they care about boosting profits, coming across as appealing to viewers, increasing ratings, viewership subscriptions, etc. To me, the media is big business, profit-driven, money-driven... when it comes to issues like politics, the media has nothing to do with reporting reality, being normal, far less to do with being "liberal." However, I do feel that the media is honest when it comes to the weather. For some reason, the weather is a reality that everyone can agree on. I guess that's why discussing politics is risky in a conversation, whereas everyone knows that weather is alway something cool to talk about with others.
