"Trump ate his salad with a dinner fork and completely ignored his salad fork today. Tune in to CBS News for more." - Charlie Rose
When will the media quit going ape$#@! because the father of a terrorist was at a Hilliary rally?
But but but Trump shooshed a baby and knows Putin.
Democrats go crazy accusing Trump of inviting the assassination of Granny Hills. Media will help.
But in 2008 Hills talked about assassinations as the reason she was staying in the race. At about 2:00 it starts.
Maybe Trump will finance a movie about assassinating a sitting president.
I'm sick of the lack of diversity at the top of liberal media organizations.
We should convene a panel to discuss it
15 media CEO billionaires vs a FOXNEWS panel of nobodies OK.
When you say media bias is a fact. Do you mean a Fox News kind of fact, or an actual fact?
In 2015, then-Twitter CEO $#@! Costolo secretly ordered employees to filter out abusive and hateful replies to President Barack Obama during a Q&A session, sources tell BuzzFeed News.
According to these sources, the May 2015 #AskPOTUS town hall came out of Twitter senior leadership’s frustration with the fact that platforms like Reddit had become home to celebrity Q&As.
According to a former senior Twitter employee, Costolo ordered employees to deploy an algorithm (which was built in-house by feeding it thousands of examples of abuse and harassing tweets) that would filter out abusive language directed at Obama.
Another source said the media partnerships team also manually censored tweets, noting that Twitter’s public quality-filtering algorithms were inconsistent. Two sources told BuzzFeed News that this decision was kept from senior company employees for fear they would object to the decision.
According to sources, the decision upset some senior employees inside the company who strictly followed Twitter’s long-standing commitment to unfettered free speech.
Trump- "I'm so hungry, I could eat a horse."
CNN: Trump threatens to cannibalize innocent animal!
Interesting comments from conservative radio talk host Charlie Sykes on how years of conservative attacks on the media helped create Trump:
Erick Erickson partly agrees, but thinks the issue is that the attacks have been one-sided:
For some, like me, perhaps we pushed too hard on issues and held too many people to many promises we took more literally than we should. Perhaps we encouraged activists to have too little grace for others. For others, it was making promises they had no intention of keeping. For others it was peddling stories they knew to not be true, but were just too good not to talk about. And for others, it was ignoring very real concerns of Americans in favor of the concerns of check writers. Republicans and Democrats both deserve blame for the rise of Trump — the one for talking a good game and not delivering and the other for flat out ignoring the conditions and concerns of a disaffected group of Americans in favor of identity politics.
I think, if anything, the coin operated conservative movement will never account for its participation in the rise of Trump, but deserves much blame. It decided to define conservatism based on the highest bidder instead of the highest principle. Conservative activists turned lobbyists and suddenly their issues became conservative even if they were not really.
* * * *
I do think, however, what guys like Charlie and I and others have to be willing to do and be consistent about is calling out bullcrap on our own side. How many conservative outlets were willing to call out Gateway Pundit and Breitbart for running pictures of the Cleveland Cavaliers celebration as if it was a Trump rally? How many were willing to call out those sites that ran pictures from February as if they were pictures from yesterday showing Hillary Clinton falling?
Conservatives have spent years calling out the mainstream media for making up stuff about the right. We do ourselves no favors if we do not also hold our own side accountable lest they discredit us all and drive our own side to the brink of dementia. That is why, for example, I have a growing list of conservative media outlets I flat out refuse to reference or rely on for my radio show and this website.
If there is one great bit of blame for conservatives, it’s that we allowed bad operators to join us because we assumed we were in common cause with them when we were not. And now, like the cuckoo bird, these bad operators would shove us out of conservatism when instead they themselves much be held to account for profiteering, corruption, and lying to senior citizens and activists alike.

CNN Changed This:
“Burnin down $#@! ain’t going to help nothin! Y’all burnin’ down $#@! we need in our community. Take that $#@! to the suburbs. Burn that $#@! down! We need our $#@!! We need our weaves. I don’t wear it. But we need it.”
Smith's sister Sherelle Smith condemned the violence, saying the community needs the businesses affected. "Don't bring that violence here," Neal, his other sister, said while sobbing.
PittsburghTiger doesn't get sarcasm. Sad!
A Washington Post writer who recently claimed that a $400 million cash payment to Iran was “American diplomacy at its finest” failed to disclose that he has been on the payroll of an organization that emerged as a chief architect of the White House’s self-described campaign to build a pro-Iran “echo chamber,” according to information obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Allen S. Weiner, a Stanford law professor and contributor to the Post’s opinions section, co-authored a piece arguing in favor of the Obama administration’s decision to pay Iran $400 million in hard currency in what many described as a “ransom payment” for the release of several U.S. hostages.
Weiner and the Post failed to disclose that the writer has long been on the payroll of the Ploughshares Fund, an organization recently exposed as a key cog in a White House-orchestrated campaign to build what it called a pro-Iran “echo chamber.”
Ploughshares provided millions of dollars to writers and experts who publicly pushed for last summer’s nuclear deal with Iran. Senior White House officials subsequently cited the group as its top pro-Iran ally.
I don't know how many times it's been pointed out - even though Fox News is number one in cable news, it is dwarfed by the left leaning broadcast news and newspapers. Fox viewership isn't squat compared to the total.
can you get Fox without Cable?
I know, I know.....this is the part where the "enlightened" will remind us that everyone gets their news from their phone and facebook anyway....until you post a link here from facebook and suddenly facebook isn't a reliable source anymore.
