Quote of the Day
What percentage of stories on politics or public figures is NOT misleading. I’ll give you the answer in the comments.
Close to zero. We don’t have a press that does news, just narrative. Zero newspapers talked to me before canceling me. No curiosity about context. When you meet the subjects of stories they laugh about how wrong the news is. Almost every time.

I fully agree. I could tell you supporting stories for an hour. See also this category of blog posts.
This sentiment is not rare. See for example here:
According to Gallop, 38% of Americans have no trust at all in the mass media.
But that does not tell the entire story. It would not be much of stretch to say 100% of Americans has zero trust in the mass media. Those with some trust in the media are not Americans. They are useful idiots and/or communists.
