    The United States media is a real problem. Not the left-leaning, not the right-leaning but ALL. The fact that we all know which media outlets lean (and that's being kind) in which direction is a massive problem. The media should be neutral and just report the facts. But, since they don't actually do their job, not a lot of people trust the media. You have multiple versions of every single story that ever comes out, so it results in confusion, mistrust, division, and extreme ideological leanings. I hope this is a wake-up call for all of our media outlets to get out of politics and get back into just reporting the news. But I'm not holding my breath. I'm assuming it will get that way for COVID-19 stories (we're already starting to see that), but once this is done it will go back to "business as usual". We, as a society, have to demand more from our media.

    Gotcha. Yeah, I was really proud of the sports industry for leading the way with cancelling group events before people really understood how serious this is. I think the private sector has been tremendous so far. I hope fatigue doesn't set in. This is going to be a marathon.

    There's only two that clearly lean. The others are accused of leaning but in my opinion are much closer to the middle of the country than most realize. I don't think people in Mississippi account for how far right they are nationally. What may appear to be "liberal" to some is just "not a super, far right ideal" to others. It's all perspective and everyone having a voice has confused people. Many blame the media. I personally think social media is more to blame.

    This is what I hope as well. I've already seen a couple people make statements along the line of they are tired of hearing about it and/or they are "so over" all of this. This is just the calm before the storm. We arent' even in it yet.

    That, and anyone with a podcast or a camera can call themselves "media" today. Whether it is Daily Caller or Daily Beast - we have to get better ourselves about not patronizing media that is pushing the extremes. Quit buying into sensationalism.
    We have the greatest access to information in the history of mankind and we choose to get that information from Shawn Hannity and Rachel Maddow. It's unreal.
    "After dealing with Ole Miss for over a year," he said, "I've learned to expect their leadership to do and say things that the leadership at other Division I schools would never consider doing and to justify their actions by reminding themselves that "We're Ole Miss.""

    A lot of the media is basically just a television show. They are biased towards ratings instead of actually informing the public, so they push whatever story gets them ratings.

    LOL @ "There's only two that clearly lean."

    Agree with "Many blame the media. I personally think social media is more to blame."

    Sadly, that same natural selection is going to cost those kids their older generation, too....

    Where did you find that?

    Nevermind I see it on worldometer. I can't find it in Mississippi media sites though.

    Yep. This is a major part of the problem. We need faster tests. And we need more tests. We need to test everybody.

    Perfect example of the greater point. It's not me it's the other side.
