Media Bias Even When Reporting Bias

Media Bias Goes Both Ways
Media Bias Goes Both Ways

To the Editor:
Alessandra Stanley’s article today regarding MSNBC vs. Fox News misses several very important points:

  • Both are undeniably partisan, but MSNBC has been critical of any number of Democrats, certainly more so than Fox has been of Republicans.
  • MSNBC may be snarky and hyperbolic, but Fox is vastly more so and is responsible for “reporting” crackpot theories and ideologies treating them as worthy of prolonged debate, deliberately misleading and guiding their viewers by sowing discontent and distrust, enabling the paranoid elements of the right to control the conversation
  • Apparently Ms. Stanley is as “fair and balanced” as Fox.

    Sincerely,
    Donald Stalknecht
