The article pointed it out just fine. No need to reinvent the wheel.

With the current state of the government controlled media in the country, ie 90+ % of the media from ABC to the Washington compost being on the side of the far left, why does the left continue to hammer on the few outlets that are centrist or right of center? Are not we, who are conservative entitled to some truth from the media instead of the leftleaning propaganda that much of it provides?

I read the original Times article, and I was very surprised that they were considering such a small decrease in unemployment rate as significant.

The right wing dominates the AM broadcast airwaves, Fox radio and TV, and as much of the internet as you care to log-on to.
You're under-represented? Check out RTF Potus place.
Don't like MSNBC, CNN, etc. Don't watch it. Pretty simple, Huh? I don't like Fox or Rush, I don't watch.
The few newsprint publications that still exist do so because they serve the mainstream public that is out there, or so is their free-willed judgement.
Don't bitch about biased, the right is as biased as the left.
You are being represented in perfect proportion to your percentage in the general population, (well PP excluded).
There was a popular election. It was not rigged. The SCOTUS did not have to weigh-in this time around. The left won, the right lost, get over it, and start planning, instead of just whining, and threatening. It'll swing your way again, I promise. It's the way it works.
