12. It is laziness if not conscious bias
allowing those news/journalism people who can't or won't be bothered to tell the truth to just pass the buck and blame both sides.
Then they can sit back and continue to tell the message dictated by the RW corporate media with their conservative cry baby bias about how they are always the victims of mean democrats, liberals, and progressives who are actually anti-american socialists/communists/marxist/anarchists whenever they challenge their oversimplification of issues if not outright lies.
Best way to make a buck with the least amount of effort is to blame both sides and let the corporate media narrate the direction of news you are supposed to relay to the people instead of actually investigating it yourself and telling the truth. It also helps keep you off the shit list of the RW who'd label you mean nasty divisive, partisan, socialist/communist/leftist/anarchists who get lumped in with the RW nutjobs who dream of fighting off the US government when it comes for their freedom, god or guns.
You only get to avoid being tossed into the fictional pot of the extreme hard crazy 'left' if you bow to whatever the RW's agenda is and only if they don't feel threatened by you at the time.
