Much like your obsession with the Reagan tax cuts - poof!!!

 

GOPers spend a lifetime concocting fantsy explanations for all manner things Republicans cannot otherwise understand, things like: why all the wealth is being redistriburted to the top of the 1%, why not even a Fascist SCOTUS will ban gay marriage, why the FBI investigated for five years and found nothing on Hillary but got felony criminal indictments on 19 Senior Trump officials and 5 guilty pleas in 5 months.

Focus, scout. In one para you had "redistriburted" to the 1%, "a Fascist SCOTUS, gay marriage, Hillary, 19 indictments and 5 pleas. Each is a topic by itself.

 

So of course the ones who bear all that "bad news" to people trying to justify racism, bigotry, misogyne, xenophopia and worship of great wealth would be seen as "enemies".

And now, racism, bigotry, misogyne (whatever that is), xenophopia (whatever that is), and the worship of wealth. Another bad day??

Ok - Why don't you give us 3 examples of how the Free Press should have reported yesterday's or todays newsworthy events and didn't 

You keep making all these unsubstantiated accusations - how about you stop that and provide some examples 

 

1. Report on what's been going on our Southern Border where there are still today hundreds of Children held in cages in the Custody of Trump

Simply report on the flood of people attempting to illegally enter the nation and the efforts being made to stem the flow

 

This is misleading. Over the last decade, illegal immigration has been going down. Between 1983 and 2006, according to the Border Patrol, the United States apprehended roughly one million—and sometimes as many as 1.5 million—undocumented immigrants per year along America’s southwest border (where the vast majority of undocumented migrants cross). That number steadily dwindled during Obama’s presidency. In fiscal year 2016 (which began in October 2015 and ended in September 2016), it was 408,000—less than half the number in 2009.

 

Then Donald Trump came along, and in fiscal year 2017, the figure plunged even lower: to 304,000. The apprehension numbers remained at historic lows for the first months of FY 2018

2. Report on the Manafort trial this week where a person who was the Trump Campaign Manager is on trial for money laundering - tax evasion & failing to register as a lobbyist for a foreign government 

Report on the trial while pointing out that it is totally unrelated to the President and Manafort's time with the campaign

 

They Are .............

 

Politics & Policy
Why Mueller’s Manafort Case Isn’t About Trump

What exactly does the special counsel want from the president’s former campaign chairman?

 

Source - https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2018-07-31/manafort-trial-is-not-mueller-s-main-event

 

3. Report on why at the Whitehouse today the heads of Trumps Intelligence Services were updating the American People on their efforts to thwart Russian Interference in the 2018 midterm election but why the Commander in Chief wasn't there and made no comment in support of his agencies efforts - in fact again tonight he called the Russian Investigation a hoax

Report how Agencies are assigned tasks and do them without constant hovering by "the Boss". Also, a report on the actions being taken and planned might be useful

 

The Heads of the Intelligence Agencies were at the Whitehouse yesterday - telling the American People that Russia is currently inteferring with the 2018 midterm elections - Two US Senators were recently hacked already and the Intelligence Heds said there are more still unreported - Shaheen and Mckaskill

 

Trump just last night said Russian Hacking is a HOAX - there is no way the US Government can mount a effective campaign agaisnt Russia with this kind of Mixed messaging - Russia certainly is not going to be deterred by the Comments of Kirstjen Michele Nielsen if Donald J Trump is Covfefe

 

President Trump's national security team said Thursday that Russia is behind "persuasive" attempts to interfere in the 2018 midterm elections.

Hours after White House warns of new election meddling, Trump again points to 'Russian hoax

4. Also, please report on yesterday's early am tweets by Trump calling on Sessions to shut down the Mueller Witch Hunt - right now

I cant wait - well actually I can because I know all we are going to get is rhetoric & hyperbole 

 

O.K. - I don't want to disappoint you - "Rhetoric &hyperbole".

 

This what Trump said - this is what the MSM reported - there is no MSM bias - just a Person in the Job who is unfit

 

"This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further. Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!" Trump wrote, in the third of a series of tweets.

 I was trying to follow that jumble of assorted comments and complaints but when it got to covfefe, I gave up.

 

Why don't you take a few deep breaths and focus on one point you want to make.

This is the same - shoot the messenger - Baloney.......................if you're covering Al Capone or Charles Manson - the reporting isn't going to be flattering

 

 


No messenger shooting, no baloney, no Capone, no Manson, no flattering, just a simple fact - the MSM is biased.

www.nytimes.com/2016/12/30/opinion/sunday/if-donald-trump-targets-journalists-thank-obama.html


The writer of that article is no longer at the NY Times - he has gone to write for The Intercept - a markedly dysfunctional organization that has been said to be - "a place where journalism goes to die"...

 

It's a sad thing to witness the deterioration of a Pulitzer Prize winner so far and so badly in such a short period of time...

 

 

 

He (tRump) is useless on top of the ground - he should be under it - inspiring the cabbages...
