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.”
