The media is left leaning and has been for decades. According to The Washington Post,: “Just 7% of journalists are Republican. That’s far fewer than a decade ago.” The corrupt biased media stole the 2016 midterm election by lying about President Trump’s collusion with Russian. This led to Democratic members of the House of Representatives, voting strictly along party lines, to impeach the president.
The public has become disgusted with news media which feeds them with news on one side. News supporting one side is called fake news because it covers up the opinions which it opposes. This creates hatred and people live in darkness not knowing the truth. Fakes News becomes even more a problem when in a crisis like Corona Pandemic.
