Over the past decade, the citizens of the United States have developed a very clear, and very growing liberal trend. While this trend permiates nearly every aspect of the political spectrum, there is very clear concensus especially on socially liberal views. Analyzing all of the major data, this trend began in the mid to late 1990s, and has grown even stronger over the past 5 years since 2009.

Seen above, is the local chicago-area Fox news station. When walking into the room and glancing at the TV screen I was pretty surprised to spot this headline, a surprising statement from a notably right-wing biased company, even if it is from a local station. So…. what do you think? Is local news trustworthy enough to earn a watch? Or are local stations just as corrupt as their national counterparts?
