IT IS NOT THE POLITICAL TILT OF THE MEDIA THAT THEY OBJECT TO...:

Dear Conservative Media: Do Some More Damn Reporting (Ben Howe, 05.11.18, Daily Beast)

The American political left has something that their counterparts on the right do not.

It's not a particular point of view, or a thing that is particular to a point of view. It is more foundational than that. It is something utterly essential not just to the growth and credibility of the right, but to the political health of the American landscape at large.

What's missing is an entire subset of media. Sure, the conservative media has solid opinion writers and deep-thinking essayists by the handful. And within that hand are diverse opinions, notwithstanding recent, glaring errors in judgment at some outlets. There is depth. There is talent. However, there is almost no original reporting.

...but the facts themselves.  So rightwing media can not afford to report or they alienate the readers.
