There are many mainstream reporters who have stepped up since Trump’s election to investigate things I see the alleged “liberal” media hasn’t looked at. 60 Minutes did a strong segment on fake news. Joy Reid had a panel of intelligence experts that included Jack Rice who is the ex-CIA agent I trust. It isn’t always possible to identify good law enforcement sources. Jack has a progressive radio show here in Minnesota that has impressed me time and again.
The conclusion I draw from this is that it can be good to follow individuals rather than outlets. I have identified a cluster of 10 principled conservatives I could respect and work with based on their reactions to the Trump presidency and Gianforte thugdown. I found them through mainstream media sources. Finding conservatives I could reasonably work with was something I once thought impossible.
