News and opinion. I don't have any trouble distinguishing between them. The leaning of the particular organization won't determine which news does or does not get reported because by comparison, people know when something is newsworthy or not. We expect newsworthy items to be reported. The organization simply plays up news that shows their agenda in a good light and down plays news that favors an opposing view. I don't care how you try to do it, when you control how the first amendment is exercised you are are on thin ice and when you force control by back door measures it is just as obvious as if you simply jailed those who speak views you don't like. The current administration is taking its plays from the wrong play book and it is obvious why. They have an agenda that doesn't motivate people enough and the opposing agenda doesn't need much air time to be effective against that agenda. Silence them somehow or fail in your agenda. It works both ways and doesn't matter what the agenda is. If the people aren't motivated by the agenda or are easily motivated against it then to win you have to control the media to isolate the opposing view.
