COMMENTS
Thank you for bringing this up. For these exact reasons we'll never hear this critique because they literally control the narrative. Over the past year I saw much more lasting damage done by these "legitimate" news outlets through insinuation, rumour, hinting and outright blatant manipulation of facts to set agendas.
