Media Bias Threatens Our Republic

There are countless times, in any given day, you are likely to hear references to “two Americas.” Depending on the speaker, issue, and occasion, one person may not even be picturing the same two Americas as another.

Americans get their information from different sources and in ways that didn’t exist not that long ago. Whatever you presume to be a “fact” depends on where you get news, who you trust, and what they believe.

People also believe something a friend or family member tells them more easily than information from another source. Whether it is true has nothing to do with it. Countless Americans think Donald Trump said, “Nazis and white supremacists are fine people” or that a new bill in Florida prohibits people from saying the word “gay,” or that Republican-sponsored state laws restrict voting rights of black Americans. None of these three beliefs is true. But people have heard it and assume it is true.

The digital age has increased the amount of information we can access, but its reliability isn’t what it once was. Most people don’t have the time, interest, or expertise to check key facts in every story they come across. It is understandable. People are busy.

The past few days have presented a cornucopia of examples of precisely how different things are in the still relatively new Biden Presidency. A couple of examples, with more to come.

How many times do we need to learn this lesson? When an important story hits the news, our first impressions are often wrong. Sometimes, it takes months for full and accurate information to come to light. This is especially true if it is a politically charged story involving partisan discord.

The situation has been exacerbated by the willingness of social media outlets to censor information. Also culpable is the mainstream media, as they have largely abandoned of any pretense of objectivity. Most major media outlets today openly champion one political viewpoint or another, and few even make an effort to appear unbiased.

America Won’t Agree on Solutions if We Don’t Share a Common Understanding of the Problems

The discussion about 2020 vote fraud mirrors, in many ways, the status quo on public affairs more broadly. And that isn’t a good thing.

If you are reading these words, you are more than likely a very well-informed citizen. That isn’t a compliment to us. It’s a compliment to you. And not because our site is special. But if you have found your way here, in a maze of thousands of options, you must be fairly interested in the health of our nation. It also means you must not take much of what you see on tv or read in the papers at face value. Again, good for you. Our intention here is to raise questions, invite scrutiny, and offer opinions with which you may or may not agree. We are all about free speech, even as one of our major political parties no longer champions it.
