PAUL STANLEY Says American News Outlets Have Turned Into 'Biased Fast Food Providers'

Paul Stanley has slammed American mainstream media outlets for only reporting one political side of the story with bias.

Earlier today, the KISS frontman, who is currently on tour in Europe with his bandmates as part of their "End Of The Road" farewell trek, tweeted out the BBC News logo along with the following message: "If You're Ready For News With Far Less Of The Game Show Slickness And Bias Of Our 24 News Networks You Might Try One Of The BBC Outlets. Less Exciting? YES! But Filling 24 Hours Is An Unnecessary Challenge That Has Turned Outlets Into Biased Fast Food Providers."

Last year, a Gallup poll found that 62% of U.S. adults believe that the news they see in newspapers, on television or hear on the radio is biased and that 44% say it's inaccurate. In addition, more than 80% said they were angered or bothered by seeing biased information, and slightly more felt similarly about seeing inaccurate information.

Presented with a host of major news outlets, respondents ranked PBS News and The Associated Press as the least biased outlets, while Fox News and Breitbart News tied for being perceived as most biased, according to Business Insider.

Last August, Stanley said that he does not believe the press is the enemy of the American people, presumably in response to President Donald Trump, who has regularly derided the media as such.

Stanley offered his opinion in two separate tweets, writing: "JOURNALISTS And The Media Are NOT The Enemy Of The People. Without the opportunity to hear all points of view we can't find the truth. Those who want to silence opposition and questions or turn the public against them ARE The Enemy Of The People And Of [email protected] @FoxNews"

He added: "Because ALL media coverage of politics is clearly biased now, we should accept that EVERYONE is participating and NOBODY is innocent. THAT is all the more reason we need to hear it all."

Trump has frequently taken issue with outlets like CNN and The New York Times for publishing critical stories about his administration and has continued to call journalists "the enemy of the people," despite criticism and fear that he is stoking tension and violence.
