WSJ, The Home of Government Propaganda

It really doesn’t matter how filthy rich your owners are, you can’t buy the next generation of people with your lack of journalistic integrity. How are you going to manufacture consent, WSJ, if no one but the older generation reads you? How are you going to spread the government approved narrative if you’ve ensconced yourself in boomer media? Your readership will all die out eventually as will you..

Liberal bias

I used to like WSJ for its op-ed as well as its objective reporting, an oasis in the liberal news media. Unfortunately, there has been a significant shift recently and all the reporting resembles the bias of a liberal activist news outlet. If so, I rather switch to HuffPo and NYT.

This podcast reflects the same bias, it is very difficult to listen to if you are looking for objective and insightful analysis.
