You're missing the point. The "news" doesn't just report, they sensationalize. This is how it should look:

"Experts say coronavirus infections are on the rise. Florida taking a particularly hard hit. Also in Florida tonight, police officers shot a man allegedly brandishing a gun outside a Miami area mall. The suspect was declared dead on the scene. Several witnesses claim the man was unarmed. Video footage is being sought."

That isn't what happens. It's more like this:

"Coronavirus cases are on the rise in Florida. One expert says there could be as many as 1.2 billion new cases in Hillsborough county alone. President Trump says, without offering any evidence, that the numbers are actually much lower. Also in Florida, an innocent black man was gunned down by white police officers for what appears to be no reason whatsoever. Officers claim the man was pointing a weapon at them. Witnesses say this is another vile racist attack on an African American family man. A peaceful protest broke out and several police vehicles were set on fire by white nationalists that some say were wearing Hawaiian print shirts."

Yes, but when two of the spark plugs wires are completely melted and the other two are coat hangers wrapped in black tape, the AM radio won't pick anything up anyway.

You sound like this just started yesterday. 100 years ago, newspapers were openly political and sensational. It has always been up to the consumer to separate fact from opinion and sensationalism.

People talk about fake news. Its not necessarily fake but it can definitely contain political spin and both sides are guilty. To call it a conspiracy means there is a collective effort to misinform and I don’t think that’s happening. Do you really think NBC, CBS, CNN, ABC, etc. have a daily Zoom conference to decide which lies to spread?

They sensationalize with a radical left wing agenda. That's why the media has just about zero credibility, other than with the deluded fellow travelers.

Who is “they”? Who is “the media”? Whatever your point of view, you can find an outlet to validate it. That doesn’t sound like much of an organized conspiracy to me. Maybe you’re just a paranoid nutjob.

They certainly appear to. They all report the same stories in the same manner using the same language with the same political bent. Buzzwords appear across all of them at the same time. "Problematic" is the newest one. I know they have always been sensational, but now they are outright liars. You can try to apologize for them and explain it away, but the slant isn't a slant. It's a nearly vertical.

So I'm including a link to that liberal bastion of fact checking, Snopes, to show you a list of the media's ties to the Democrat party. Even they try to smooth it over by calling it a "mixture". It's goddamn disgusting and dangerous to the very existence of constitutional republics. Take a peek:

Yes. Cognitive dissonance. Everyday we are told so many things that are contradictory to each other. The goal is to cause so much confusion that we cannot act without Big Brother telling us which way to go.

"Masks won't be effective against the spread of this virus... Wear a mask or you're complicit in murder."... "

"Travel bans won't work and are racist... Why didn't Trump impose a travel ban sooner?"

"President Trump is a racist... President Trump restores funding to historically black colleges."

And on and on.

The rhetoric that those who unknowingly spread the virus are murderers has really been ratcheted up just in the past few days during the second wave scam. This has been baked into the cake from the beginning of course, but it's all part of the agenda to continue to smash the public down until there is full compliance with the orders that the dictators issue.

I hope people actually read the entire link. It doesn't say what you claim it does. Clearly, you have a theory, and are looking for information to validate it.

It's simply insane that you can say that. Are you saying that Ian Cameron of ABC News wasn't married to Susan Rice? Are you saying that David Rhodes, president of CBS, isn't the brother of Obama speech writer Ben Rhodes? Are you saying that former ABC president Ben Sherwood isn't the brother of Obama adviser Elizabeth Sherwood? That's exactly what Snopes is claiming.

It is insane, but Dan is a hardcore leftist and therefore has insanity in his mind.

How many media people are connected to someone in the Republican party?

Let me guess Dan, you don't believe the media has a liberal bias, right? No, of course you don't, because you're a liberal yourself, and liberals never admit to anything wrong.
