- 2019.02.18 Laura Logan - CBS's Foreign Correspondent (Laura Logan) admitted that she might be committing political suicide by admitting the political truth (something frowned on at CBS), that the media is widely far-left leaning and under-represents the other side of stories. According to her, you have to actively seek out Breitbart or FoxNews to get a balance and understand both sides of a topic. This is no shock to conservatives or the informed -- the left will now seek to get her fired for telling that obvious truth.
- 2018.10.03 Breitbart Blacklisted by Wikipedia - You don't have to like Breitbart, to admit that it's a news source that's broken some pretty good scoops, and done some serious investigative journalism. They of course have an obvious bias, but so do all the others. Banning Breitbart as a trusted news source, without being able to site examples of why or what standard they broke that others they tolerate hasn't as well, is pure leftist politics. It's like Joseph Stalin purging figures of people he didn't like from Soviet history. At least while still allowing partisan sources such as CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, NYT, WaPo and HuffPo. Pick a standard, and ban everyone based on that. But you don't get to have arbitrary standards. So the fact that the latter is blanket allowed, and the former is not, is not a reflection on Breitbart's bias but on Wikipedia's.
I would tell anyone to not trust ANY website or news source. Always question, or leave room for doubt. Breitbart is no exception to the rule. But what I like about them is they break news that the other left wing sites suppress, they backup their material more (because they are being held to a higher standard for being right wing), they are open about their biases unlike CNN, NYT or WaPo that likes to pretend they're not biased (while obviously failing). That being said, they have made mistakes -- and corrected them. Most of the hand waiving about errors turns out to pretty pedantic shit, once you look into it. (Where they were materially correct).
The biggest gotcha the left has, is that they said they weren't going to allow a platform for the alt-right, long before the alt-right was established into what it later coalesced into. Ah ha! Gotcha. That's like saying that CNN was completely behind Antifa, BLM, SPLC or Jussie Smollett, before they were exposed as hate groups. It might not show great judgement as they should have known what they would devolve into -- but it's a tad unfair to misrepresent it based on what they knew at the time.
