The disparity is there if you know where to look

Depending on the 'side' you choose in terms of political correctness in 2019, you are either aware of how conservative voices are being vilified and banned, or you think that concept is just false hype perpetrated by whiny Right wingers who can't take the truth.

Seeing the truth of the matter used to be as easy as looking at the like versus dislike ratios on YouTube videos. However, with YouTube's ever-increasing tendency to remove comments, videos and entire channels, it gets more difficult to find how the majority of viewers genuinely feel about something.

An excellent still-existing current example of the difference between the media and the public, are the ratings shown on Rotten Tomatoes for Dave Chappelle's Sticks and Stones show.

In the show, Chappelle's societal provocations, which happen to be funny due to their contemporary relevance, are received with polarity, as witnessed by the conspicuous disparity between the critic (media) and audience (public) ratings.

As of September 6, 2019, all of ten media critics have weighed in with an overall rating of 30%. In contrast, 22,250 members of the audience have given Sticks and Stones an overall rating of 99%.

Think about the stark contrast and what it implies.

Fake News earned its tag by deliberately and consistently espousing a narrative that is the opposite of the ethos of the people.

The Left's voices may be the loudest in the public square, but they don't speak for the majority of the country.
