It may be perception: or it may be reality: but if there’s one thing we’ve learned in the run-up to this years Presidential election, it’s that there isn’t a single national news source we can depend on for coverage of the campaign, covid19 or other issues facing us that’s right down the middle. Increasingly Americans are getting their national news from sources which are aligned with their political beliefs. Perception is that you’ll always get a pro-republican slant on stories from Fox News and Newsmax TV, liberal leaning coverage from the major over-the-air networks, CNN and MSNBC. It’s obvious those networks have identified their core audiences and play to them. Each weekend morning I spend about 15 minutes listening to news casts from NPR, Reuters news, Fox News and Blumberg, and it’s amazing how each of them cover the same story with their own unique spin. All this generates interesting debate when you ask someone who they think will win the presidential election. The answer you get seems to depend on who they watch or listen to, and where they get their national news. That’s the way I see it.
