    I didn't say there were 'heaps' Rammy. I just agreed with the premise that the gamut of views (left and right) are covered in some capacity in mainstream media.

    Most people chose from within that spectrum based on their preconceptions. These preconceptions then become reinforced to the point where people believe it to be the truth.

    I noticed on my Foxtel TV App that most of the shows on SkyNews (like Jones, Credlin, Kenny etc) are now listed as Entertainment rather than news. :thinking: I'm wondering if there are any broadcast laws which allows them to tell porkies under guise of "entertainment" ?

    I hope ABC iview lists 7.30 and Four Corners as entertainment as well.

    Their lean is significantly overbalanced by the hundreds of other organisations that are biased the other way.

    I would agree that there are more liberal news organisations than there are conservative, I think that's probably natural given the kind of person who's going to drawn towards a career in journalism, however the ratio you claiming here is just more unsubstantiated nonsense.

    Of course. As are universities. To imply that they don't exist though is a bit of an exaggeration.

    Agree. 4 Corners less than the other two, but I have seen some absolute specials from them over the years. Not as much lately in fairness.
