January 10th: Watch an Opposing View News Channel

THIS WAS HARD.

I don’t want to get into politics, so I won’t even say what my normal news source is or which one I watched to get an opposing view but I will say how disgusted I was.

When it really comes down to it both sources leave out stories that do not align with their agenda and seem to build a lot of fear and hate around issues that they do discuss. This is not new information to me, but the extremity of it is disheartening.

I found this media bias chart:

I think it is a good representation of how the news sources.

I do think this is something I should do more often just to at least hear what the other side is discussing but not something I can do extremely regular because of how frustrated I got with lies and exaggerations.
