3. Good, but I no longer believe the News Hour is unbiased

and am sorry to hear their team will control discussion.

We've watched PBS for years. But after so many top MSM sources became blatantly corrupted on behalf of the RW wealthy I became alarmed, especially after the Kochs bought in big. (Nothing's sacred, even CBS's 60 Minutes opening with a bald, unadorned special announcement, delivered by Scott Pelley, that Mueller exonerated Trump.)

I haven't studied it carefully, and we have stopped watching every night, but that's because I've noticed an upsetting pattern of things like too many omitted details that affect understanding. Also often leading and closing with clips of Republicans passionately spinning for Trump or attacking Democrats, supposedly fair-and-balanced with clips from the "other side," but I don't buy it.
