All the Bias That’s Fit to Print

“The Washington Post’s slogan could be updated to ‘Democracy Died in Darkness’ after its series of missteps and mistakes over the past five or so years. From propagandizing the Trump-Russia collusion hoax to calling the lab leak hypothesis a conspiracy to, more recently, printing Amber Heard’s op-ed written by the ACLU and used as evidence in Johnny Depp’s defamation suit … The Post has struggled to say the least. But they’re not alone. CNN has begun to reassess its ‘partisan bias’ and Gannett, owner of The Tennessean, has announced plans to roll back its op-ed section after concluding that ‘readers don’t want us to tell them what to think,’ and that they ‘perceive us as having a biased agenda.’ Just spit-balling here, but what if the problem is that the bias presented by these outlets is just unpopular?” (06/14/22)
