For more discussion ( 70 pages ) of the above,If all one knows is what one reads in the news, it's difficult to know very much, or know it very accurately. (Look up Gell-Mann amnesia.)
The subset of all information which is the information posted here is very, very small.
Media bias checks have ceased to be meaningful, except to those living in bubbles isolated from the reporters' activism at the NYT and WaPo (most notable for their former reputations, but not the only ones), and the repeated inability of huge agencies to get simple stories correct or to admit egregious incompetence or bias when it happens (CBS is back in the news for being unable to do the news.)
We have regrettably reached the point at which bias/partisanship is so pronounced in the large media organizations that they can no longer be trusted on political and social matters; a prudent person must cross-examine everything by reading outside the "green box".
