MSM keeps posting articles about what Trump is thinking almost daily. I see it on CNN all the time and these bombshells from WAPO and NYT seem to pop up during every scandal. The idea is to take something bad Trump did and then push the reader even further by saying "and now he's considering the next bad thing" You can't read an article like this and not conclude "trump has gotta go" and thats what its designed to do. The problem is that its unsubstantiated and could be completely made up. There will never be a way to know if it was completley made up or not because, like most of the trash these days, there are no sources.

Quote :
"President Trump has discussed dismissing the intelligence community’s inspector general, Michael Atkinson, because Mr. Atkinson reported a whistle-blower’s complaint about Mr. Trump’s interactions with Ukraine to Congress after concluding it was credible, according to four people familiar with the discussions."


Its poor journalism and its happening all the time now which is sad because when the dust settles, at least 40% of the country will never believe anything they don't want to believe from MSM and that is awful for democracy. Sure it scores points against Trump but, it hurts everything else going forward.

It’s really not poor journalism if you have any clue how journalism works. And Trump essentially confirmed it like 30 minutes after your post and said he wants to investigate the IG.

I know it’s best to ignore Earl but nearly every story we have seen (with some notable mistakes) like this has been verified 100%.

If you want perfection, then I don’t know what to tell you.

(Again, though, the one constant on here is Earl being anti-anti-Trump.

the anti-anti trump assessment is actually accurate even though what was meant (pro trump) is not.

I'm you made that slip because its pretty much unacceptable to not be blindly anti-Trump in the real world which has resulted in a lot of thoughtlessness in the movement against him. Its usually safe to assume anyone who has a problem with blind anti-trumpism is a trump fan because most people don't complain about things as long as their agenda is benefiting and anyone who doesn't like Trump is benefiting from dishonesty and unfairness against him.

With that said, it makes sense that since I call out BS against Trump, I must have a pro-Trump agenda. I'm just not like most people. I try to seek the truth even when it doesn't benefit my agenda. I'm anti-a lot of things Trump does, but not just blindly anti-Trump. In a perfect world, no one would be.

Being blindly anti-trump is stupid and thats what it amounts to. This notion that anything bad for trump is automatically good and anything trump says is automatically bad. Do you really think its 100%? Trump could come out and do something previously thought of as "good" and anti-trump people will say its bad and be outraged just because he did it.

Being anti-Trump undermines genuine resistance to Trump's awful policies and forces his supporters to write all complaints off as anti-trumpism.

Quote :
" Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has kept a relatively low-profile since the Senate narrowly confirmed him last year amidst serious allegations of sexual assault. That will change tonight when Kavanaugh is the keynote speaker at the annual convention for The Federalist Society, an enormously powerful right-wing legal organization.

Kavanaugh will find a friendly audience. After Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, Federalist Society President Leonard Leo took leave from his job to advise Trump on selecting Kennedy's replacement. Trump chose Kavanaugh with Leo’s advice, and The Federalist Society played an enormous role in defending Kavanaugh as allegations of sexual assault emerged.

The event tonight is black-tie optional and backed by a group of "Gold Circle" sponsors. Most of the sponsors, as you might expect, are law firms. But there are a few exceptions, including the world's largest social media company: Facebook."


fuck Facebook

They do a great job satirizing Trump and republicans in general based on their actual behaviors but they always tend to glorify people they like or at least go easy on them.

What they did to AOC is completely different. They painted her in a blatantly sexist way and the character had nothing to do with anything she's said or done.

Well I guess The Hill is pretty much entirely full of shit now instead of just a normal level of shit.

I was going to wait until Monday for the media to talk about SNL but they never did. So SNL sexualized AOC for no reason in and left twitter was the only place I've found a problem with this blatant racism and sexism without any comedic context.

This nydaily summary is literally the only thing I can find written about it on the internet
Quote :
"Who knew the sultry bombshell of the President Trump impeachment hearings would be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

Melissa Villaseñor channeled a super-seductive version of the New York politician, who halts the hearings with a monster lip lock on acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor, played by surprise star Jon Hamm."

Wheres the media?
