Tucker Carlson: Democrats’ radical immigration legislation would help foreign criminals move to US

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/tucker-carlson-democrats-radical-immigration-legislation-would-help-foreign-criminals-move-to-us

Lure,  I hope this is a useful explanation as to why some members,  like me,  may not read this link:  it uses the word "radical" to arouse an emotional response in the reader/listener.   When words are used this way,  rather than transmit facts or calm discussion, it tells me that it's very likely the writer/speaker wants to prejudice me towards the legislation before I even know what it's actually intended to do.   Words that are chosen to inflame a prejudice,  rather than convey facts,  are called "propaganda."  They indicate that a presentation of the facts and principles behind the legislation will not be fairly presented.   

If you are ever interested in more fact-based and objective news sources,  I recommend

apnews.com

Or npr.org

Or https://www.independent.co.uk/us

Or Toronto based Reuters.com. 

These organizations are not current owned by any American political party or corporate entity that controls content.   This should enhance their credibility,  as sources free of partisan control.

Hannity's show spreads disinformation, according to Fox News.

And so,  to review,  Luee ...what is the term for a broadcast media outlet when it uses prejudicial terms and misinformation to sway the viewers opinions?   Begins with P.   Rhymes with "drop a panda. "

Good thing you told us.

I am sure those you are ignoring will be crushed and devastated.

I do like the brevity there.   

If Schrodinger heirs removed the cat,  and put Carlson in the box,  it would advance both science and political discourse.

Good thing we are building a wall.

LOL. 
Get a clue about how news is disseminated.
The AP?
NPR?
Both non-profits relying on the information(news) as reported by its fee paying members who thus are able to use the info themselves. All of the members are owned or controlled by corporately owned media enterprises or public news outlets funded by private donations and federal tax income.
Each supposedly are free of “ bias”?  Get a life.  The AP is routinely criticized for anti Israel bias and
NPR for political correctness ( Ask Juan Williams).
The Independent? A website owned by a Russian that it is an unabashed center-left outlet interested in pushing views, not news. Nothing wrong with that unless you are looking for balanced “ news” coverage. Point is the Independent is owned by someone who has partisan control.
But so what?
If all you do is search for news you agree with you remain as shallow as you post.

This one is about the records for how Georgia purged half a million voters.
