False Equivalence: The Media Bias Nobody is Talking About.
,

Robert Reich breaks down how the mainstream media draws a false equivalence between the
right and the left and misleads the public about what's really at stake.

The mainstream media has historically tried to balance left and right in its political coverage,
and present what it views as a reasonable center.

That may sound good in theory. But the old politics no longer exists and the former labels “left”
versus “right” are outdated. Today it’s democracy versus authoritarianism, voting rights versus
white supremacy.

There’s no reasonable center between these positions, no justifiable compromise. Equating
them is misleading and dangerous. Don't fall for it.

I don't.

Treating America's right and left today as equals...is like treating round Earthers and flat Earthers as equals.

The American right has gone bat-**** nuts.

Who decides where the centre is?

From a European point of view the Democrats are very conservative.

The Republicans are far right.
