DID YOU KNOW?
Two terms that commonly appear in American discussions on politics are "liberal" and "conservative". Did you know that plenty of Americans believe that most news sources tend to lean towards the liberal spectrum? A study conducted entitled "The Media Elite" has found that a huge majority of journalists held strong and firm liberal views on a wide range of social and economic issues like affirmative action, homosexuality, and abortion. The aforementioned journalists interviewed came mostly from national media outlets like The Washington Post and The New York Times, which led many to believe that plenty of well-known news sources lean towards the left.
Besides news sources, a number of liberal platforms have also grown in popularity like books, shops, and blogs. Despite the popularity of liberal websites, conservative news sources are still being viewed by audiences with both left and right-leaning outlooks, some of whom desire a respite from what they would consider "liberal echo chambers". Moreover, plenty of Hollywood celebrities also hold views that one might see as liberal. The political views of these news sources and individuals might look absolute, but changes in beliefs happen and have happened often, so it wouldn't really be a surprise if we see a liberal news source suddenly shift into the conservative side or vice versa. That aside, netizens can agree on some news outlets that hold no political prejudice, mainly sports news sources, as well as sources for technology news.
