Well, the other important difference is that the NYT actually cares whether its articles are true.
And while the New York Times *leans* left, Breitbart is way way out on the far right fringe with the fascists, and proudly so.
tsk tsk, definite name calling. (-: I listen in on both sides and Breitbart users call NYT readers Maoists and NYT readers hurl names that you did. So should I believe that leftist media is Maoist?
I saw this thread on Quora recently https://www.quora.com/How-does-Breitbar ... ews-source
the answer of Fredrik Josefsson a Swede was different. He starts out:
With all the people saying that Breitbart can’t be trusted, it would be nice if they explained why. They could have a look at the top news of Brietbart at this right moment, pick the top 10 articles and point out how they are misrepresenting the issue.
And again my complaint about NY Times is not that they lean to the left, but that they pretend not to lean at all - that is definitely not telling the truth in my book. Whereas Breitbart wears its right of center with a pride and this is their selling point, that they are on the right. You know what you get when go to Breitbart. Not so at the NYTs. Telling your reader what your bias is at the beginning is being transparent. There may have been a time when the NYT was neutral and unbiased but we are now in a different epoch.
I have no dog in the fight as I am not an American have no party allegiance and have not voted since the early 1970s. And I should also say that until recently I very rarely visit the NYTs, now I look there sometimes to see what new unconfirmed rumor is being promoted as news regarding trashing the SC nominee.
What really is obvious is how much Americans hate each now. But, what is surprising is that considering how many guns there are in the USA that it hasn't erupted into political violence...yet. Will it devolve into Wiemar Republic style political street fights and body counts? Any opinion from someone in the US of A?
