rk - You seem a bit confused about political bias, but hey, you think Nazi's were left-wing because they had the word "social" in their title.

Just so you won't be confused again,

 

CNN, WSJ Fox and Politico are ALL considered to lean to the RIGHT.

 

NBC, ABC and CBS are all in the CENTER

 

Crooks&Liars, Counterpunch and Firedoglake are on the LEFT.

 

Exposing the corruption of the Trump Family Traitors is not a "left wing thing" - it's reporting NEWS that Americans need to know.

Suppressing newsand denying the treason of the Trumps IS however, a very RW thing.

 

Clear now? Good - now you can begin your spellcheck. (newsand???)


The word "social" is not part of Nazi. Where do you get this stuff???

 

As to the media, your response is revealing. Only someone far to the left would see CBS, ABC, and NBC as "center". But that seems about right for someone who thinks the government owns all money and distributes to the people as it thinks appropriate. Even the MSM does not go that far.

 

And Politico - right???? Another one of "those" facts.


The official formal name of the "nazi" party has always been "National Socialist German Worker's Party" - proving that profoundly maladjusted authoritarians can and do fly under a false flag - just as trump does when he says - most everything - over three quarters of which ultimately turns out to be untrue.

Sorry rk9152 I originally "misspelled" Calumny , but that word applies to all far right and far left sources , but to question legitimate sources , such as CNN,NBC,ABC,WSJ,Politifact etc , because they say something negative about your leader is poppycock !!!


You are forgiven - BUT DON'T EVER DO THAT AGAIN!!!!

 

Yes, there are "out there" and there are "far out there". If Fox News is to be considered "not acceptable" so should those you mentioned.

My point was about the key portions of any interview or discussion. When my uncle talks about the assassination, that is the quote that, while taken out of context in the sense of out of the body of the interview, will be discussed.

 

Yes, people do put their own spin on quotes - but that does not change the content of the quote.


 


And that is what changes something that is masquerading as a news article into an opinion piece.  Taking comments out of context CAN greatly alter their meaning.  You would have to read the comments before and after these statements to decide what the actual meanings were.

If Breitbart clearly labeled this as "opinion" I wouldn't have an issue with it.

Breitbart is your source again huh Jimc , I'm beginning to wonder If the C in your name stands for "Culumny" because it sure as heck fits !!! You have no shame in your biased B.S. sources !!!


There is no such a word as "Culumny". But, whatever you think it means, did you apply it to posters who cite daiky kos, moveon.com, LGBTQ Nation, etc.??

 

Or are your insults reserved for certain people based on their political beliefs?

Not one word of ANYTHING printed by BRIETBART NEWS should be believed.


I know I know,...  Since you have no defence for Senator Warren or thoughts on her comments and hate the article for the information published, ATTACK THE SOURCE!

 

Too FUNNY!

 

ATTACK ATTACK!!!

 

LOL!!

 

 


You can't attack the information because the source poisoned its presentation.

 

There is no defense of a source that is disgraced and discredited.

 

There is no defense of a source that presents distorted information.

 

BRIETBART NEWS is nothing but a disreputable purveyor of slander and libel.

 

I wouldn't trust one word published in what STEVE BANNON himself described as a PLATFORM for the ALT-RIGHT.
