    You know there is news on these sites. Then there are the fluffy stuff, recipes, decor tips, car reviews etc and then there are things marked OPINION.
    Like that Bay guy.....on another papers website, no-one complaining about his articles is there?

    You can choose to read OPINION, or not.
    It's far better than if all the news sites disappeared and we were left with the likes of Facebook reporting "news".

    The problem is that it is 90% opinion presented as news. They often do not indicate what is and what is not.

    Actually, there is a rumor doing the rounds here that Bridges did a Covid-19 test and came back positive, to IQ-19.

    Then we really are in trouble - on both counts

    Its more often biased reporting .
    Leave out facts or misrepresent facts depending on the reporters/papers political bias.

    (mis)Reporting on Trump is a good example.
    In NZ we see a left bias in the misreporting . The immigrants Kids in cages is the best example biased reporting , was OK/ignored when Obama allowed it .
    In the US, its a Right or Left misreporting bias, depending on what paper /TV news channel .

    Give it a rest. It is looking like a school yard argument between children.
