I have been a VERY LONG TERM SUPPORTER of KPBS. I am neither a Republican nor a Democrat, and as an Independent, I have always enjoyed KPBS and NPR news stories as well as educational coverage.
However, since Trump has taken office, KPBS has fully abandoned it very mission to provide NON POLITICALLY motivated news to the community. I am VERY OFFENDED by KPBS's recent decision to fully tilt EVERY SINGLE NEWS STORY towards being Trumps fault. I did not vote for Trump, I do not support his ideas, but it is ABSOLUTELY statistically improbable to have EVERY SINGLE NEWS STORY be Trumps fault. This has ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED my belief in KPBS as an important news outlet, one which I have financially supported and which I have touted to friends as being very important for our community.
The RELENTLESS attacks against the Trump administration and Republicans is OFFENSIVE. I now doubt EVERY SINGLE NEWS STORY which comes from KPBS because it is %100 clear that KPBS has absolutely decided to push the Democratic Political Agenda. This has POISONED KPBS's WELL and by default, KPBS's credability!!!
IT is %100 clear KPBS is poisoned because of the repeated twisting of words, use of comments out of context, constant insinuations, devious introduction of feeling based commentary, and flat out FALSE quotes/lies which are presented to the public repeatedly through out every single day. The news that comes through the radio is very important to the community, but when KPBS decides to specifically push Democratic Political Agenda, it destroy's KPBS's reputation of being impartial and provides Trump validation for his efforts in cutting off your funding.
Why can't KPBS take the high road as it has done so many times in the past? Instead KPBS has taken the Republican's bait and fully jumped off the cliff. KPBS has a FUNDAMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY to remain impartial, by ignoring that responsibility, KPBS has become FULLY IRRESPONSIBLE. The term "FAKE NEWS" is being legitimized one tilted story at a time. Trumps claim that media is unfair is being validated because of KPBS's childish response to his claims. KPBS is fueling the fire between Democrats and Republicans by choosing a side, and is just as responsible for politically motivated attacks/terrorism as Trumps "rhetoric". How does KPBS not realize their news stories are "rhetoric" also?
Knock it off, people are not that stupid and they hear the political junk which KPBS is pushing to San Diego. Take the high road and stop wallowing in the mud with a pig like Trump. You are systematically proving him correct by allowing democrats to run the show.
