Media Not All Biased

One can hardly blame many Americans for their refusal to trust the news media, given the hysterical tone taken by some in major news outlets.

Take the MSNBC television network. Not long after President Donald Trump made his inaugural speech on Friday, MCNBC star Chris Matthews took to the air. He pronounced the president’s remarks to be “Hitlerian.”

What prompted Matthews to say that? Trump’s promise to make “America first.”

What Americans need to remember is this: Ultra-liberal fanatics are but a tiny minority in the news business. Here at this newspaper — and at most others — we try hard to be fair and accurate, regardless of how we feel about those we cover. It is a shame, nevertheless, that a few like Matthews have forgotten the meaning of journalism.
