What is Behind the Bias in Mainstream News Coverage?


What is Behind the Bias in Mainstream News Coverage?

The state of today’s corporate media in the United States is not what it used to be. Why aren’t many of the stories you need to know about being covered? And when they are covered, why aren’t they covered fully? RT America’s Rachel Blevins reports. For analysis RT America’s Rick Sanchez is joined by Chris Chambers, journalism professor at Georgetown University.

    RT doesn't lie because they don't need to lie and they would be crucified if they did. All they need to do in order to achieve what they want to achieve is simply put people on who tell the actual truth about the state of America. Nothing fake could possibly be as effective.

    Interesting that RT would put on a report like this. It is well known that the Russian spy agency infiltrated much of the American News Media in the 1940's and 1950's. One of their greatest successes was the New York Times which was used to destroy Senator Joseph McCarthy and his efforts to identify Communist agents in the US Government. Their agent at the Times won a Pulitzer Prize for his efforts. Ironically, Glasnost allowed the opening of the KGB files that revealed the role that agent, a senior Times executive, played in destroying the Senator and the identities of all of the Russian agents who were actually in Roosevelt's and Truman's administrations as well as many of the communists who were in the US bureaucracy all the way into the 1960's.

    This girl has a terrible way of presenting. The way she ends sentences sounds odd and false. Please don't put her on again. Let her go back to We Are Change or whatever she was on before.

    Otherwise, the information is well known by people who don't watch mainstream and corporate media. It's good to bring it up but it won't get too far as most people think the "real news" comes from CNN, Fox, MSNBC, etc and they will never see this.

    When i was in my teens,20'sand 30's I thought I could trust DAN RATHER,SAM DONALDSON,WALTER CRONKITE but I HAVE LEARNED THAT they were not telling the real whole truth on their news.Media changed during the Vietnam war.,it started being manipulated toward the GOVT. BIAS opinions. The Sheeple were no more the Wiser.The system keeps the Sheeple so busy that they accept what is shone in front of them.and the media keeps them so entertained with BULL CRAP that they dont want to research for the truth.KIDS are taught even in school that CHEMTRAILS are normal.They are being brain washed by all media sources today. WE NEED TO TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY.

    Bwaaaahahaha, pro-establishment propaganda for the US on an RT show. Cute. The host (and both guests, to an extent here) supports our establishment lies that say that pages were deleted for being 'propaganda'. Such bullshit. You know what a CNN article described that those 'propaganda' pages were doing? Promoting 'anti-Israel, anti-Saudi and pro-Palestine' attitudes!! OH MY! Exactly what our sociopathic warmongering money addicts DON'T WANT, what a coincidence! No mention that some of the deleted pages were anti-imperialism, and things like Filming the Cops, Police the Police, Free Thought Project, AntiMedia and so on.
    Also I notice that the host subtly supports what our establishment has done for decades, pretending that we have a 'left' and a 'right' media, when what it really has done is promoted DIVISIONS among 'we the people', the fake 'one party good/the other bad' performance that has been done for us for decades, in support of the establishment agenda. Our establishment is TERRIFIED that solidarity will continue to happen, as we find that we are almost ALL against our wars, political corruption, and most of us want healthcare for all and to FREE JULIAN ASSANGE. The male guest at about 6:50 says that the Fox model is 'news plus propaganda', AS IF THE OTHERS ARE NOT! smdh
    Let me see – will have to remember that Rick Sanchez is not like most on RT (Crosstalk, Chris Hedges, Lee Camp, Mike Papantonio and others) and that the professor who teaches journalism (Chris Chambers) is a stupid type probably put in place as per The Powell Memo of 1971 that detailed how the rich could take over the country via education, media, courts, politics and policies. Worst RT show, for sure. NO actual 'information'.

    Yeah guess if any media or news agency actually reports the “real” news, and doesn’t follow along with the fox/trump tv propaganda and promotes their lies and bullshit. Yeah we should question truth and promote lies..
    alt-reality? Alternative facts? Yeah right reality tv is real and real life is fake…
    welcome to the fox/trump Orwellian world…

    American media these days is of two types – one is the regular news reports and the other is "guests" representing their views or news.
    It is the latter presenting their "cordiality" or worse of all their "prejudices"!! Serious viewers can judge for themselves.

    MSM is owned by only a few people … we see the world they want us to see so they may control us … everything is lies even at school … Remember Mrs. Ludwig and how she told you they abolished slavery and had a nice dinner meal with the natives ??? ….. well she meant we institutionalized slavery making it a punishment for crime and making being black illegal … oh and those pilgrims enslave those nice native people, gave them diseased blankets all so they could steal land … the problem in America is too many people believe the fake version of history … Oh man, it's winds day I haven't prayed to Odin yet, gotta go Pagans
