Jon Stewart Tells The Media To Move Past Trump And Get Their Shit Together

Submitted by: normalfreak2 1 month ago News & Politics


Jon Stewart popped in on the Late Night with Stephen Colbert Show and dropped a message off for the media that's covering politics these days. Maybe it's not all Trump's fault. Maybe the media needs to regroup and work on themselves.

The truth is every story is biased by who wrote it because everyone sees the world a little different and that will be reflected in the article. So Trump trying to keep out the "biased" media and hand picking who he talks to leaves it as a one sided story. As much as some may hate the bias seen in many articles we really should have the option to get both sides and decide for ourselves. Before you may have needed to read from 4 different sites to get all the info but at least you could.

There's no "maybe" about it. The MSM is spiraling down the hole and all they can do is shout LOUDER? The public is on to their lies and fake news, yet they've 'doubled down' and churn it out like never before.

President Trump isn't going to change because THEY force him to, so the MSM's choice is to change themselves or become completely irrelevant.

5cats Out of curiosity, is there a legitimate media site that everyone can get behind? The Associated Press? Reuters? The Independant? 

I feel like a lot of people lump MSM sites together, but I never see anyone suggesting a smart alternative publication. 

And Brietbart is not an alternative.

fancylad: Try C-SPAN my friend especially the Washington Journal and the weekend news round-tables review. You can listen to them in the car on the radio on 90.1 FM.  C-SPAN has had tons of civil debates between economists, legislators, activists, and even the general public, also if they find a great debate on another network, they'll record the main parts and arguments and play them for their audience. Also I've found they have better experts on different matters as well. Although they aren't always as entertaining as the talking heads on other programs. I recommend the Washington Journal because they follow current politics, have experts come on, and if you think that they are missing some facts or want to add your own perspective you can call in and discuss it with them live on the air. The weekend news round-tables review is good because they will air every major TV news stations weekend reviews, so you get all of them at one place and they tend to be more factual than editorial. Also if you miss any thing or hear something interesting, The C-span site has video clips of everything and has tools on their site for you to snip select clips from a video.

You're never going to find a totally neutral source but I think C-span try's to record both side pretty accurately in my opinion.

fancylad The NYT, the AP, Reuters.   If I want a slightly Left Perspective I read Vox.  I always read in on Breitbart to see what the nutjobs are thinking you have to read Fox/Drudge

fancylad AP and Reuters are usually ok, but they get a lot of bias too. One needs to take every 'report' with a grain of salt, yes? And keep in mind the source.

Fox News (which I don't watch btw) is usually the top network for accuracy and least bias. Believe it or not, doesn't change the facts. Doesn't make them perfect of course, but 10x better than MSNBC (for example). They are not MSM because they don't push the leftist line, eh?

5cats I am kinda surprised people are letting this comment slide.  I have a number of issues with what you are saying here, but I'll keep this brief.  

You say: "faux news is the top network for accuracy and least bias". 
1 - you are absolutely wrong on both counts.  
2 - In the same sentence in which you laud faux news' accuracy and neutrality, you state that you don't watch it.  Sooo, does that mean you are admitting that you consume inaccurate and biased news?
3 - You also say, that faux news is "...not MSM because they don't push the leftist line..."  So, your definition of MSM is anything that pushes the leftist line?

5cats Like Brietbart is more legitimate and truthful. How about the National Enquirer, they are just as truthful as BB. BTW they reported Bat Boy is the Trump's Illegitimate first son and heir to his fortune.

insaneai A 'legitimate' news outlet wouldn't be 'mainstream' eh? People usually get the meaning wrong, I think on purpose ;p
it's not popularity or ratings that make it 'mainstream' (or MSNBC would be disqualified! lolz!) but the fact that there's so many of them (different outlets) ALL pushing the exact same agenda.

insaneai LOL, getting there. I'm submitting a request for a White House press corp now that Buzzfeed got thrown out on their ass.

By the way, Buzzfeed should've never been allowed in there in the first place, just on the association of Ben Johnson alone.
