"Irrelevant news" is as bad as #FakeNews ft. Larry O'Connor | #TruthStraightUp

“Irrelevant news” is as bad as #FakeNews ft. Larry O’Connor | #TruthStraightUp

Is honest media enough? There’s a lot of talk about #FakeNews and biased news, but what about irrelevant news?

Often on cable networks, the “news” is completely irrelevant to the average American. The topics that are important to the TV networks aren’t important to anyone else.

The commentary that TV hosts provide is not what most Americans are concerned with on a day-to-day basis.

Sure, the mainstream media should tell the truth—obviously—but it must do more than that. The media should talk about issues that are important to Americans. Our news should cover topics that matter and are relevant to the majority of the country.

This is the big danger in today’s biased media: networks are so focused on the winners and losers in Washington that they forget to pay attention to the rest of America. The mainstream media shouldn’t just worry about being fake or biased, it also needs to be relevant.
