Fox and MSNBC are pretty much propaganda outlets at this point. The others are catering to who buys the products that advertise on their shows.

Its frightening that people only usually watch one source ...

It's hard to stomach the clear bias. It's become news analysis and opinion. Hard to find straight facts or news without their spin on it.

It doesn't make any difference what a news source says. If you agree with what they say, they're truthful. If you disagree, they're fake news. What bothers me most is when they take a source of information and twist it into something it ain't, to create a controversial issue they can kick around, and use as an attack.

Simple fact is, when you have someone like Trump in office, you have a guy walking around with a "kick me!," sign on his back. He sets himself up.

and for comparison, if you do some digging on the CDC site, you can find this little tidbit:
"CDC estimates that so far this season there have been at least 38 million flu illnesses, 390,000 hospitalizations and 23,000 deaths from flu."
for comparison - the CDC site shows thru Tuesday 3/24 there were roughly 55,000 cases of Covid-19, and 737 deaths.

So death rate from COVID is much higher than seasonal flu. This thing is dangerous.
