Press [1] for Democracy (P1FD) is a Coffee Party Radio show that discusses the political issues of the day in a civil, fact-based, and transpartisan manner.  Transpartisan is quite different from bi- or non-partisan in the we encourage callers to be passionate about their positions, but also that they listen and respond to those with differing points of view repsectfully and with a true desire to find common ground on which solutions can be built.  

Tonight on P1FD . . .

Join special Guest Hosts Kathleen Morgan and Marianne Castiglia for a look at bias in the mainstream media. 

Do American’s trust what is published in newspapers, or broadcast on TV and radio news programs?

Charges of bias in the mainstream media seem to be raging stronger than ever.  Do you believe that some media outlets distort stories and then allow other stories to get more or less attention? Do you ever feel that minor or trivial stories like celebrity divorce or even lengthy murder trials are used to distract us from getting vital information that has a greater impact on ourselves and our country?

“Media bias” describes an unbalanced or unfair reporting style that is meant not to inform, but to sway public opinion.  On today's Press [1] for Democracy, let's talk about what’s being reported by today’s mainstream media, how it’s being presented, and how it is effecting conversations in neighborhood coffee shops and at work around the water cooler.
