Question for right-wingers: Can the right-wing media be biased and one sided too?

Posted by: SegBeg

Right-wingers are ALWAYS going on and on about how biased and one sided the left-wing mainstream media is. Right-wingers, can your media be biased and one sided also?

  • Yes. All forms of media have some bias

  • No. Right-wing media is completely fair and unbiased

  • All media networks are controlled by the Jews, there is no difference between them. They are pawns.

  • Everyone has bias, it isn't something that is totally unavoidable. Some people are better at concealing it (Megyn Kelly for example) and others are not (think Sean Hannity).

  • It can CAN be, but not all forms of media have bias. Take Fox News for example. They are completely unbiased.

  • Of course.

  • Yes, it is just that there are less main stream right wing news sources.

  • I personally believe yes, news channels such as Fox News are biased toward right wings though many democratic and especially liberal news channels are biased toward left winged politicians. Really all news is biased whether right winged or left winged and as a republican myself I do watch a lot of Fox News, as well as a little CNN

  • Obviously all media can be biased.

  • Yes, all media essentially has a bias in favor of the ideology the reporter holds. This can be more or less suppressed by the reporter in his attempt to be objective. The occurrence of left wing bias in the media is more common than right wing bias because left wingers tend to have the compulsive need to "help" others see the "truth" more often than right wingers.

  • Everyone is baised towards one side. It is very hard to find a news source that is 100% independent.

  • All media is biased, regardless of what they may claim. The best you can do is read multiple sources.

  • All media can be at least a little biased no matter where it comes from. I am a right wing libertarian btw.

  • I do agree that although conservative media is biased, it is just as bad as the left media. Sources like BuzzFeed, CNN, and Fem Freq.

  • Yes, but we let others opinions be heard, we don't censor, Buzzfeed well accuse you of a whole freight train of BS if you don't agree with them, we well try to give you facts and respect your opinion.

  • by definition, if you call something right-wing it means that it leans that way.

  • All people have bias, whether they want to or not.

  • People seem to forget that the alternative to bad can be worse as well as better. The right's alternative to mainstream media is even more biased than the mainstream.

  • Of course they can.

  • All media, regardless of political affiliation, contain some bias. Some more so than others, but it is still there.

  • It's impossible not to, the thing is, Fox news (for example) doesn't try to be neutral, while other news stations do.

  • I am a conservative, but even I realise everyone is biased somehow. The media is always biased. It's just a fact.

  • Defiantly, just as much as liberal media, or more.

  • Well everything in life is baised and just because im republican doesnt mean my favorite news media isnt baised

  • Is anyone really saying it doesn't?

  • As consumers of 'news' all citizens have a responsibility to fact check before agreeing/disagreeing and sharing said news with our peers. Fact checking does not mean only looking for the sources that support our personal beliefs/feelings on the subject. We must suspend our biases long enough to find the truth, and take the time to reflect on what that truth means to us as citizens in our nation, as well as to the world in general. Most importantly, we must be flexible enough in our opinions and attitudes to change them if that is what the situation calls for.

  • Of course they can, as a strong conservative I believe that each side can be biased. BUT if you asked this question to leftists the results would be much different

  • Left wing media bias is more prevalent in today's world, but I consider all media bias to be unacceptable, and the right is certainly guilty of this as well.

  • Media platforms consists of hosts with opinions. Despite attempts to rid the news of such bias, it leaks into the airwaves often enough to be noticed. It is best to view all media with this in mind.

  • All major news outlets have some form of agenda but still, most of the time, report accurate news. Believe half of what you hear and half of what you KNOW!

  • Definately

  • all media has bias when they just need to report the news and what real happened i shouldn't need to watch a lot of different news just to find the truth

  • We're not having a one dimensial opinion on Fox News. I know for a fact they have been biased. I actually hate Fox News, and I'm a conservative.

  • No one is without bias.

  • All sides of media are heavily biased. They are owned by corporations, who pay for their own agenda. So it's not just left and right, it's also the wealthy 1% pushing their own agenda, not just on TV but politics as well. I am a highly conservative millennial, hardly any liberal views, which is saying a lot.

  • yep. CNN is as biased with libtards as Fox is with conservi-fucks.

  • Yes...of course it can be biased too, it is a silly assertion to make that a news source can't be biased, it just so happens that be the fact that as of recent history right wing news sources have been far more impartial and reporting far more fairly that frankly left wing media sources just look really really bad by comparison.

  • As someone who's moderately conservative, I feel like this goes without saying.

  • Yes, but the single right wing cable news outlet (Fox) doesn't try to sell opinions as facts like Rachel Maddow. She's pathetic.

  • As a very right wing person I do say that there can be right wing bias in news media (ex. Fox News). No network can be 100% unbiased. Though, there is much more left wing biased news media (ex. Buzzfeed, MTV, CNN, Salon, Fem. Freq., ABC, CBS, MSNBC, PBS, Huffington Post)

  • Yes, the right wing news looks biased... but they are outright moderate compared to groups like Buzzfeed, Huffington Post, Feminist Frequency, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and Infowars. What's sad is that Sargon of Akkad is more reliable than most of the people listed, because he actually bothers to break it down.

  • It's near impossible to be biased when all they speak is the truth.

  • Everyone has a little bias, but Fox News almost always allows the other side to voice their opinions. Right now, most if not all of the other news agencies are reporting none fact based news about the President and I 100% believe their sole mission is to sabotage POTUS Trump. What they report is pure propaganda and shouldn't even be called news. And with this fake news they just rile up the naive, not-so-smart liberals into a panicked frenzy. Drop is not Hitler, so just chilllll. The issue with Flynn's step down will never be as big as 9/11 or Pearl Harbor and there is no evidence at this time that it is the biggest controversy since Watergate or Iran Contra, so just chilllll.

  • Murica

  • The stupid media almost cost Donald Trump the election! Yeah, there are biased news stations, but everything on TV, in schools, and in books and newspapers contains liberal bias. It's time to stand up against those dirty, rotten liberals.

  • Its called facts

I'm not a right-winger, but I do believe that all media, especially during the election, were biased. Some news stations strove to give people both sides of the election, but they still seemed to lean towards one side. CNN, for instance, did make an effort to show some of Trump's weaknesses when it comes to public speaking such as "WE WILL BUILD A WALL! IT WILL BE A GLORIOUS WALL!" while Fox News decided to focus more on Clinton's email scandal, and reflected on some of Trump's greater points.

@BlargArgNarg, I will not accept anti-semitic comments on this poll. I'm sick and tired of the "the media's controlled by the Jews" mentality. Stop blaming Jews for YOUR failures as a person and as a nation.
BlargArgNarg says2017-01-31T13:33:57.5032578Z
Delete the truth if you'd like, remain blind to the problems that the West is facing.
BlargArgNarg says2017-01-31T13:34:52.7428578Z
It's real, you may not believe it, but it is real.
SegBeg says2017-01-31T13:40:05.4390880Z
@BlargArgNarg, I'll let your comment stay, but cut it with the anti-semitism. I'm sick and tired of people blaming the Jews for literally EVERYTHING- economic crisis- JEWS, something in a movie you don't like- JEWS, biased media- JEWS! People marrying outside their own race- JEWS! People who blame Jews for everything are just weak people who dont' want to take responsibility for their own faliures.
BlargArgNarg says2017-01-31T13:46:42.9582880Z
I won't abandon my beliefs, but I will respect you and your polls by not sharing my opinion.
Hanspete says2017-01-31T13:47:52.0096578Z
Hey I guess my family controls media networks then... Pity I can't find any of the money from it.
SegBeg says2017-01-31T13:48:21.3474880Z
@BlargArgNarh, no, that's not what I meant. You can share your opinions but it was just really unnecessary for you to bring Jews into this.
BlargArgNarg says2017-01-31T13:50:03.6210880Z
That's what I meant as well, I worded it a bit oddly.
Hanspete says2017-01-31T13:53:25.9998880Z
@Mharman, Dude Fox News has bias too, they have some unbiased reporters and several clashing opinions, but they are still biased. Same goes from most every media outlet.
Mharman says2017-01-31T13:54:26.7364578Z
No they are not.
Fernyx says2017-01-31T14:41:34.8604578Z
@Mharman saying Fox is unbiased is the same as saying CNN is unbiased.
Fernyx says2017-01-31T14:42:40.6924578Z
@BlargArgNarg what are your thoughts on Ben Shapiro?
Mharman says2017-01-31T14:42:51.2848578Z
No, its not.
Iacov says2017-01-31T14:45:05.6944578Z
Mharman in what way is fox unbiased while CNN is biased?
Mharman says2017-01-31T14:46:16.0036578Z
Fox has always reported the truth. Meanwhile, CNN edited a Donald Trump quote.
Fernyx says2017-01-31T14:46:41.9152578Z
@Mharman as a conservative, yes it is.
Iacov says2017-01-31T14:50:13.4298880Z
Fox is unbiased huh? Http://www.Politifact.Com/punditfact/tv/fox/
BlargArgNarg says2017-01-31T15:13:15.5020578Z
@Fernyx I don't really have an opinion on him, I've never listened to him.
Fernyx says2017-01-31T15:15:22.9696578Z
@BlargArgNarg He is a conservative, anti-media Jew, do you hate him as well?
mdmark says2017-01-31T16:53:46.1656578Z
Everyone criticizes Fox News for being right wing, but there are no other reasonable right wing media outlets. Just like @Fernyx stated.
ChristiananRed says2017-02-01T15:41:32.7317252Z
Really all news is biased whether left winged or right winged. CNN is biased toward liberals and democrats while Fox News is biased toward Republicans. Even when a network claims to be unbiased, a reporter will of course have their own political stances and will tend to side with those stances.
AnonymousAthiest says2017-02-08T17:37:26.8160539Z
Blarg, cut the anti-Semitic BS. I doubt you can prove any of your conspiracies, so stop blaming the Jews for all of your problems. Its stupid, baseless, and annoying.
Jakenator09 says2017-02-24T17:25:18.1404056Z
The fact that fox is so much less bias rather than CNN,NBC, or CBS, ECT caused me to choose this side. Yes i know that all forms of news have their own opinion and bias but Fox has much less. It might just sound as if they are bias because the left is just that bad.

"It's near impossible to be biased when all they speak is the truth." - DrIVanHopekins Hahahahahahaha, that is hilarious.
BARBARA58MERCER says2017-04-05T16:30:37.9468523Z
I am not a "right wing" person, however the sample of the pic displayed and the logo, "Fair and Balanced' of Bill O'rapist is biased.
armoredcat says2017-11-18T19:47:21.4566723Z
All forms of media can be biased.
