    There is a simple metric for quality of news gathering: how many bureaus does a network have. If they have a lot of bureaus, they are interested in collecting news. If they don't, they aren't. CNN has 36. Fox has 15.

    Might want to clean your cache. That is definitely the right link. Opens for me just as the photo shows.

    I picked that date because it was one year from the ones I posted in the OP.
    You can search any day at random that you want. They were all Trump all the time. A lot of it editorial type stuff.
    Just like Fox is now. Thats the point. MSNBC is the only one still on the 24 hour Trump train which is no surprise.

    I looked on my computer now (I had looked on my phone) and it does work on there. Strange.

    Of course, if you look at October 7 (you showed October 6), there was 1 Trump headline. On the 8th, there were none (it was about the VP debate).

    CNN - Breaking News, Latest News and Videos

    CNN has amore international presence though.
    Fox leans more domestic.
    I mean, MSNBC only has 20 and that is in partnership with the longstanding NBC networks news bureaus.
    It was founded in 1940.

    Regardless, I am not here to defend any of them. They all suck.

    Right. I showed 10/6 because that was exactly one year from the headlines in the OP.

    Worked fine for me. But others are trying to go off on tangents than deal with your argument. Not surprising.

    They do say negative stuff about Biden, but you often have to go to their political page to find it. It is rarely on their homepage. I will say they were pretty hard on him over Afghanistan.

    So if your claim is true, that it was all Trump all the time, why doesn't that work for Oct. 7 or 8?

    Think you can find Fox doing as many factchecks on Trump? I mean, other than some Republican claiming Trump was right?

    Okay, let's search random days. July 1, 1 Trump headline, others about the Texas Covid restrictions, 1 about a kid organizing BLM marches, and another about a car chase in California.

    https://web.archive.org/web/20200701235822/https://www.cnn.com/

    The next one was July 3. No Trump headlines.

    https://web.archive.org/web/20200703005722/https://www.cnn.com/

    2 Covid headlines, Ghislane Maxwell, and a black guy doing normal things getting 911 called on him.

    Did DeSantis outlaw people wearing masks?
    Anyone who wants to were a mask can wear one whenever and wherever they want (personal choice man).

    Yes, some days (such as the days in which he was in the hospital or just returning from the hospital), the news was about Trump. Other days, it wasn't. That actually is how it is supposed to work.

    Gotcha. I should have been clearer when I responded. You are correct.
