You asked Aidan to prove Tucker admitted he lies, and he did. Is it that hard to say, "My bad. I never saw this before?" instead of getting defensive?? Admitting we were wrong should be fairly easy for us Christians.
"What is mainstream media? Not all what you are calling mainstream is reporting false.
There are also reports which you can find inmeyical yournals. You will not find their Informations you tube. Because there interest is not for to get Klicks.
You as Christian should not believe what pleases you, but what is true.
Believing people who known for their false Informations will not fit to trust in.
Like a Tucker Carlson from fox news, who confess openly to lie."
The point he made was that you should not be listening to Tucker Carlson because he spreads false information and has confessed to openly lie.
That is a misrepresentation of what Tucker "confessed". He did not confess to openly spreading false information on his TV show.
However, we do know that the NY Times and WAPO have been exposed numerous times for openly spreading false information. Just take the Hunter Biden laptop as only one example and all of the mainstream media were guilty. Not merely of suppressing the story but more importantly of spreading lies concerning the story.
At this point the number of lies spread by CNN and MSNBC are just too numerous to count, but of course the one about Antifa protests being "mostly peaceful" as the city burns in the background has become iconic.
I agree with the main point that once you know one of these "trusted news sources" is lying to you intentionally (like the NY Times did when they portrayed some low level hack in a cubicle across town as a high level official in Trump's cabinet, or when Project Veritas exposed CNN as nothing more than the propaganda wing for the Biden reelection team) at that point you stop listening to them.
I have stopped listening to Fauci, he is a liar. I have crossed NY Times, WAPO, CNN and MSNBC off my list as well. I am extremely wary of FOX news but will listen to Tucker.
One other point should be made, who says who is "mainstream media"? If it is based on ratings then Tucker Carlson is mainstream while Brian Stelter, Chris Cuomo, Rachel Maddow and Joy Behar are not. As the ratings take a bath it will be hard to justify considering CNN and MSNBC as anything more than left wing propaganda sites. I suspect the only thing propping these companies up is money from Tech giants like Facebook.
