Off topic to politics, but....
« on: June 21, 2017, 05:48:42 AM »
I could not resist.

Chris O'Donnell last night for a few minutes. Looked like he literally ate sh!t...or a can of rotten prunes. All he could talk about was how the White House was silent on all the foreign issues, like the drone and the close provocative fly by the Russians pulled off. He did not seem to inclined to talk elections for the 10 minutes I watched him rant and rave.

Morning Joe.....the victory by Republicans "barely" holding on to the Republican seat. Wow....and there must have been some prunes left in the can when O'Donnell was done last night. Sucking them looks like a flavor of the day at MSNBC. Maybe Ben and Jerry's can come up with a new flavor....Dem Election loss Prune.

Knowing this is an old thread, and I''m bored, at least for the next 10 min,  I had to laugh while reading this one.  With the mention of one's face and what it looked like that face was eating,,this thought comes to my mind every time I see NBC's Chuck Todd speak,  he has a very funny look while speaking and finishing what he's saying, it looks funny, like really strange,,

I don't know how you guys can stand to watch those new shows.  It's pretty much 95% bashing our president isn't it?  I tried watching the news here recently.  I couldn't stomach the fact that everything I saw was basically opinion based snippets of news and no real reporting on anything. 

On a separate note - do you know of any news source that is totally unbiased for a chance at just the news and nothing but the news?  I'm hoping against hope that something like this exists.

Journalism is dead in America.  I wish it was not so but am afraid that it is.  At least true journalism is dead.

Gotta agree with FURU on this one. They have abused the " freedom of the press" for so long, they can publish or state anything without suffering consequences. Outright lies are very common nowadays, same as crooked lawyers saying things in court to sway the jurors, then coyly saying, statement retracted, after the damage is already done.

 We need a justice system with hair on it's collective asses.  ::)

we all know the major networks are just pathetic, almost criminal if you ask me, and as to watching I cant' stand it, my wife wants to see, it and since the local stations have it we watch it, mainly NBC, they with CBS, and ABC are all the same, as for me, I just keep holding on to a thread of hope that one day, something will click and they will redeem themselves,, I'm not holding my breath,

I can't believe that even after these major news sources are proven to be false, people still watch them willingly.  Nothing like proving yourself to be a complete sucker, right?  My own mother is this way.  I guess it's easier to stick your head in the sand and pretend all is OK.  I've never been this way, but it seems lots of folks are.  Craziness ensues...

And furu - I completely agree with your assessment of journalism in America today.
