Just an observation: More inflammatory politics

Has anybody else noticed how pro-Trumpism attracts pro-Putinism like a magnet? For example here https://consortiumnews.com/2018/09/21/the-new-york-times-as-judge-and-jury/

And have you found yourself thinking that all those violent shots at "corporate/elite media", even when coupled with thin slogans for free speech, are actually calls to divest the last remaining semblance of free speech?

Have you ever heard of loaded questions?

Yes, I have. In this case, the whole text (behind the link) is heavily loaded with ideological bias, not just the questions in it. The writer either does not know or does not care what journalism is, how it operates and why.

The writer thinks that everybody (except himself) is a dummy who unquestioningly accepts everything in newspapers, instead of reading for reference and checking the sources provided in the articles, if the news is important to the reader. And this is just a small part of the writer's problem.
