The president of Newsmax made an interesting point about "biased news." Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"NewsMax President and CEO Christopher Ruddy stirred things up during an appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources when he told host Brian Stelter that media bias was a more relevant factor to the 2016 election than false news was.

In recent weeks, Stelter and other news figures have been concerned about the spread of fake news/conspiracy theories, as well as the possibility that it helped Donald Trump become President. On Sunday, Stelter brought this up in connection with how often Trump rails against the press, but Ruddy pressed back saying that fake news is talked about a lot more these days than “biased news.”

“[The media] had a responsibility to give fair and balanced news, and I think anybody that looks at this objectively, they were talking about issues that American public did not call for.”

      It’s the difference between the U.S. Supreme Court and a court with sharia
      law ministers… The evangelicals are the latter sort, a parasite on
      humanity. RAID FOR ALL THE WASPS

    TYT is hardcore leftist propaganda. And I sincerely hope your channel gets
    shut down. I will say there are exceptions. Sargon of Akkad is a leftist
    who is a rationalist. (even though I do get into heated arguments with
    him). I will give him credit for being unbias.

      +Melanoma Trump There’s a difference between trolling and legitimately
      criticizing.
      While I admit that bashing TYT is fun, my comment was legitimate criticism.
      I was prepared to go into detail if anyone asked for an explanation, but no
      one did.

      Also, Cenk is a fat, brown buffalo. (Now THAT’S trolling.)

      And it took me so long to respond because I was living life in the real
      world.

      Compensation Chart would look like; If, you Management & CEO Pay Increases

    What gets me is if you look at Alex Jones’ videos they have about a
    thousand likes and 80 dislikes because we don’t watch his video and don’t
    care too. BUT they come here and dislike the video and troll like crazy. It
    leads me to believe these dumbfucks are losers and have no lives. Damn
    basmenr dwellers.

    • Posted by Uncle Eisenhower, at Reply

      +Blazed and Confused​ Oh really? Then why do 84% of people in America agree
      with Bernie Sanders’ PROGRESSIVE platform when you go issue by issue and
      don’t label anything liberal or conservative. Hillary being the worst
      candidate in Democratic Party history still beat Donald Trump by 3 MILLION
      votes and the only reason he won was because of the electoral college. Not
      to mention the national registration of the parties are slanted in favor of
      the Democrats. 45 million people are registered as Democrats while only 30
      million Republicans while the Repubs numbers are net FALLING. Not to
      mention that most independents identify as left-leaning or leftists in
      general. Liberalism is taking over the country. “Conservatism is dying
      because it has ruined peoples lives and people are finally becoming aware
      of it.” Is what you mean’t to say.

      wrong. there’s a journalist named Ben Swann who’s one of the last of a

    Bias is an inherent part of the human condition. And those who would claim
    to not be biased are blatantly ignorant.

    • Posted by Golly Po, at Reply

      That’s why you have to actively try and keep it out of the media, exactly
      because it is inherent. We are, by nature, murderous as a species, but all
      societies have made it a crime.

    • Posted by Beyond Tribalism, at Reply

      +Golly Po True. But no murder law has ever ended murder. Just like trying
      to keep bias out of news wont end bias. People choose to watch networks
      that confirm their preconceived notions; therefore, there will always be
      news networks that pander to specific audiences/demographics.

    • Posted by Golly Po, at Reply

      +Beyond Tribalism
      But before Reagan abolished the “fairness doctrine” there was no outright
      biased reporting allowed, not that it never happened, but since then even
      the veneer of fairness and balance; and objectivity, have vanished.

    how is TYT fake news? I need examples and evidence.

    • Posted by MISTY1770, at Reply

      LOL! TYT censored my last comment. Truth hurts but you can’t deny it.

    • Posted by Kalu Abay, at Reply

      +Popeye’s chicken its biased based off the facts they present. If its a a
      story about racism no duh they’ll be biased to the left. If it’s a story on
      police brutality, NoDaPl, trump etc yes based off the facts presented in
      the story they’ll side to the left cause most times the left is correct
      based on the evidence and facts. Yet they never blatantly post lies on
      purpose, and if they do make a mistake they correct it. And they aren’t
      afraid to criticize the left either. I’ve seen cenk, Ana, Jordan and a few
      others take shots at the left, especially the rioters, the leftists who
      blame everything on racism or sexism, the leftists who’d vote for trump to
      spite Hillary supporters, Obama and his flip flopping on certain issues and
      Hillary’s corruption. Ironically those are the only times right wing
      commenters seem to acknowledge tyts honesty. But if TYT criticizes racism
      or trump, suddenly they are called fake news, leftist propaganda, etc. Also
      its funny that criticizing racism makes them race baiters but not the
      actual racists in the stories they report.

    • Posted by The Lexicon, at Reply

      How right you are. The approval of TYT’s individual videos seems to be
      directly proportional to whether they criticize the left or the right. If
      it’s the left – they’re ‘fair and balanced’ (pardon the reference). If it’s
      the right – biased, fake, propaganda, liars.
      Granted, TYT COULD stand to be more critical of the left, in some
      instances. But as it stands, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    • Posted by Tommy Rousseau, at Reply

      Kalu Abay very much enjoy tyt. do you think it might be because I would
      like to think I have a little Common sense . which by the way a % of these
      comments lack . thank you tyt.

    • Posted by scotaloo7 7g7, at Reply

      TYT reported on a Trump supporter burning a black church and mocked the
      idea of it being a hoax. That guy got caught a few days ago and it was a
      black guy from that church. TYT also lied about a black female doctor not
      being allowed to help someone in trouble in a plane because she was black.
      Every time a white cop shoots a black guy they insinuate or claim that race
      was a factor based on 0 evidence. Cenk claimed the Orlando terrorist was
      just a closeted gay guy that hated gay people when in fact he was an
      Islamic terrorist that pledge allegiance to multiple terrorists groups,
      traveled to Saudi Arabia twice and said that he killed people because the
      US kept droning his country.

    Biased news is ok if you get your facts right, and you’re honest of your
    bias. TYT very rarely get their facts right.

      kanishka honestly i dont want to insult u but if you can’t see that the
      young turks are total bullshit…. you are purposely believing their
      bullshit just because they agree with you. Anyone with a scrap of
      intelligence can see that they report constant fake news. When I watch
      there videos I almost always click their source under the video afterwards
      (usually it’s a single article they just copied, often just a blog article
      with no evidence) and I find that they either twisted the truth or left out
      important facts practically every time. Like I said I don’t want to insult
      you but if you think they are some kind of legitimate source for truth it
      says a lot about your intelligence…

      if u cant see my link it means it got spam filtered just type into utube

      Or maybe they do it because they’re insanely biased.

    • Posted by WobblyBits_X, at Reply

      The biggest problem with MSM is not that they’re biased (which they
      definitely are, everybody is), but that they present everything with faux
      neutrality, they act as if both points of view are equally valid even when
      they’re not. An example would be that they bring on a scientist to debate
      with a politician or religious activist to debate about some aspect of
      science (climate change or abortion for example). Right off the bat, a
      politician or religious activist is unlikely to be qualified to debate on a
      science topic yet the MSM acts as if all they say is valid regardless of
      what the *facts* are on the issue.
