Skewed News

Six of 10 Americans believe news reporting is biased, according to Gallup. Still, we trust the media more than any other source of information. Skewed News Tutor helps news consumers learn to pinpoint exactly why a report might feel one-sided, or skewed.

Great idea.

  • Except that real news IS biased: it’s biased toward truth and facts and objectivity. As a result, real news is rarely “fair and balanced.” Further, the creator of this application thinks that most news today comes from “reporters.” In actuality, it comes from people who are paid to look good and have little or no training in journalism. This is what TV stations pay for.

  • Only six of ten? That means four of ten are complete fucking morons. How depressing.
