LIARS! Liberal Mag Claims the Media is “MORE THAN FAIR” to Conservatives

The far left-leaning publication, Salon, recently wrote an article that claims there’s no such thing as the “liberal media” and that conservatives receive “more than fair” treatment.
It’s official, these people are completely delusional.
Salon writer Eric Alterman presents the relationship between President Trump and journalists as if it were a plot from a horror movie, and the audience knows what’s going to happen before the victim does. In Alterman’s view, the “racist, sexist, Islamophobic psychopath” Trump threatens the mainstream media, but reporters and editors are oblivious to the danger “not only to their livelihoods, but to their entire reason for being.”
In a piece published Thursday at Salon, Alterman discussed issues raised by a recent Harvard/MIT study of 2016 campaign coverage. He claimed that the report “clarifies a number of points that ought to alarm anyone who cares about the future of American democracy and the ability of the mainstream media to cut through the massive layers of propaganda purposely created by far-right elements.”
Alterman warned:
Conservatives are winning a war that liberals, centrists and, indeed, anyone who believes that politics should be tethered to recognizable reality don’t even know they are fighting. Racism and Islamophobia from outlets like Breitbart and the lunatic ravings of Infowars Alex Jones…drove the news coverage of the election even in our most prestigious outlets. Twitter and Facebook were dominated by phony stories designed to discredit Clinton, and cable news…reinforced these priorities, allowing Trump surrogates to lie with impunity and without correction.
That took place, argued Alterman, because certain time-honored guidelines for reporters — “keep things simple and straightforward and be fair to ‘both sides’” — now are interpreted in ways that favor right-wingers:
