    consider this though.....if you wanted to know about stuff the russian government was upto would you listen to RT (russia today)?

    No you wouldn't because its a state funded news station so they likely won't want to attack the russian government

    However if you wanted to know about the stuff the US government was upto would RT be a good source of info?

    Yeah it might be as they wouldn't mind sharing information that might be embarassing to the US government

    Might RT make up stuff to make the US government look bad? well frankly i don't think they'd need to bother because i think there is enough real stuff they can report on without having to make anything up

    see....logic....INFJ's can do logic really well

    Trump officially recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital, orders embassy move for US
    Alex Pappas
    By Alex Pappas | Fox News

    President Trump on Wednesday formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital, saying it's time to "acknowledge the obvious" as he ordered the State Department to begin moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

    “I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” the president said during a speech in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House.

    The move fulfills a campaign promise made to religious conservatives. But it could also inflame tensions across the Middle East.

    “This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality," Trump said. "It is also the right thing to do. It’s something that has to be done.”

    Actually, you've been pretty poor at "doing logic" overall. You are almost exclusively relying on subjective inference without taking the additional steps to reach a truly logical conclusion.

    Inference can be a step to forming a logical hypothesis, but you must first remove your subjectivity (opinion) and replace it with factual evidence, of which so far, you've provided none.

    I was in mainstream media for nearly twenty years, a big player with big connections, and while anecdotal, I can tell you with first hand, observed certainty that the conspiracy and collusion you think is happening is far more base and cynical than simply politics. In short, politics in media are only as important and meaningful as the cultural trends that supports advertising dollars. When the climate shifts, so too will an outlet's position to hold their market.

    On point: Trump's middle east agenda doesn't sell, Russia does, hence the "media's preoccupation" with the story. A "good editor" doesn't care what spin a reporter puts on that story as long as it creates a buzz, which creates bandwidth/distribution, which in turn results in higher advertising revenue. You might disagree with whoever you consider throwing up a smokescreen to the "real issues" but you've already given that outlet your intellectual cash with your eyes and ears, and your compulsion to share your opinion on the matter yourself; probably even naming the outlet with which you have a grievance of opinion (i.e. "free advertising/distribution").

    EDIT:

    Want further evidence? Look into the "MeToo" movement and the New York Times. Have you noticed how hungry they seem to be to find more scandals of this kind? How much a "dying" newspaper's stock has risen? Do you really think they are doing it to be altruistic champions of social justice and feminism? Do you know when the NYT actually first had this story? If they were really such heroes unconcerned with what it could do to their ad revenue, they would have broke the story regardless of politics and push back when it was first obtained. No, they waited until someone savvy in their relations department decided now is the time they can capitalize on this the most.

    Agreed with @Thoth, the media is biased toward sensationalism and scandal with little regard for political concerns or affiliation.

    There are certain markets that do exclusively cater to sensationalism of one particular political affiliation, but these are a minority and generally identifiable as being a partisan organization.

    I think most media outlets are biased to one side or the other. There just seems to be much more of a market for news media that tells people what they want to hear. Most people don't want to challenge their opinions, they want to feel righteous outrage and feel like they are being proven right. I read NPR and the Wall Street Journal, which I feel are relatively close to the center, and it's still very evident whenever I'm reading that one of those is for people on the left and the other is for people on the right. If I go into the comments it's easy to see why: NPR stories that are even slightly less-than-condemnatory of the current administration get complaints from readers. WSJ stories are full of comments lambasting liberals. There are definitely outlets that go further in more obvious ways, but I have a hard time finding any paper with editorial content that will try to look at both sides fairly and objectively.

    i disagree

    i think the me too campaign has far wider reaching implications then widening profit margins for newspapers!

    it's social engineering but to understand that you would have to see it within a wider context

    If tomorrow the majority of Western culture decided that the only hats that could worn must be orange, there would be a reporter on one side praising the decision and another on the other side crying a social injustice as long as it sells. The people in charge of your media giants are not editors, producers, reporters or anchors, they're the board of directors and chief executives. Using my analogy, they don't care about what color hats people are wearing, outside the fact of whether or not its making them money to talk about it.

    Right now political bias sells, and that's the only reason it exists in the mainstream media. When it doesn't, your top people in the outlet will start demanding moderation and a move to chase whatever the new talking trend is, politics be damned.

    Do you honestly believe that an editor for the NYT thought to themselves one night, "I have an idea to change the gender inequity discussion!" and went looking for a story to promote their social engineering agenda over "social justice" is a hot selling topic, we have this story we've sat on for years and it's a flashpoint that will sell like mad, lets run it.

    I'd argue you have been the victim of social engineering more than acquiring insight in spotting it.

    Does it have wider implications? The NYT does't care as long as they are profiting from the story. The point is truly irrelevant.

    no that's not what i think happened

    I think social engineers told the newspaper editors what to publish. I think those newspaper editors answer to the newspaper proprietors who OWN the papers and those proprietors are members of or affiliated to groups of powerful people such as the council on foreign relations. This list needs updating as David Rockefeller is now deceased. Reporters report what they are told to report and anything that is not on message with the editors wishes gets spiked

    Board of directors

    The Board of Directors of the Council on Foreign Relations is composed in total of thirty-six officers. Peter G. Peterson and David Rockefeller are Directors Emeriti (Chairman Emeritus and Honorary Chairman, respectively). It also has an International Advisory Board consisting of thirty-five distinguished individuals from across the world.[3][4]
