Earlier this month, Australian news media openly slammed the American news media over its unmitigated boot-licking of the Biden administration, with the phrase “appalling to watch” being thrown in there by one of the commentators.
It was a moment that really shed some light on our news media situation. From the outside looking in, our media look more like purveyors of propaganda than actual journalists and reporters. While it’s true that there’s no such thing as an unbiased reporter, bias has completely overtaken professionalism. For many in America’s media, if they aren’t towing a party line, then they aren’t really doing their job.
Thankfully, it’s not really just foreign media figures who see the abject corruption of our own media. Americans see it too, and as a result, we trust our own media far less than any other country does.
