Those media fact check sites come with their own heavy biases. I read their review of NYT just for laughs & it’s quite funny.

I found AFRET's citation (mediabiasfactcheck.com) very interesting and informative. No laughs here. I hadn't looked at a resource of this type, but I'm sure that there are plenty of agenda biased variants. I looked up several out of curiosity. I liked the way they parsed it between fact-check and presentation of same.

They had me at this (although "Questionable" seems a little soft):
Overall, we rate One America News Questionable based on far-right bias, lack of sourcing, promotion of conspiracy theories, and propaganda as well as numerous failed fact checks. OAN is not a credible news source.

Hehe. He got it from me.

They did say Fox News (actual news) was generally reliable but got a low rating overall due to their pundit based shows. CNN had pretty much the same rating.

OK, that's enough now. I reserve the right to delete anything after this post on Rep. Omar and the general topic. Yes, this is the right correct thread for it, but let's keep this civil.

FJ was pre-empted here for news of the strike in Syria. Really, they couldn't have waited 5 minutes to tell us about the 4,624,517,416th US airstrike in the Middle East?

File this under utterly random...
Watched Captain Fantastic (released 29 Jul, 2016) and S4E6 of NetFlix's Sabrina series (31 Dec, 2020) today.

Both had covers of Sweet Child O' Mine performed in universe.
