    The more accurate and appropriate way for the media to present it would be for them to say "The Democrats alleged that ..." And I think they know this. The phrasing is a conscious choice on their part. Which, to me at least, makes it fall into the category of political propaganda.

    I find it akin to the stated as fact assertion that "Russia interfered with the 2016 election." We hear and see this claim all the time, every single day. But they are not stating it correctly.

    I think everyone would agree with the factual assertion that "the Russians attempted to interfere with the 2016 election." It is just a small difference in wording, but it makes a big difference in meaning. The implication of the factual claim that "the Russians interfered with ..." is that they were successful and actually affected the outcome of the election. Which is factually untrue.

    This is a good example of why well over half the country has such a poor attitude towards US media. They are fake news.

    This is a bad sign though.

    "But the Trump era is helping Democrats to catch up: the Republican advantage dropped to insignificance in 2016, and in 2018 Democrats (6.03 correct) actually scored slightly (but insignificantly) higher than Republicans (5.98 correct)."

    CNN is calling out the US Coronavirus Task Force for having too many white guys. They have not yet blamed the Wright Brothers, two more white guys. If it werent for them, this little virus would still be stuck in China. Whitefolk got us into this mess, and now we're supposed to trust them to get us out of it? --

    "Who are these experts? They're largely the same sort of white men (and a couple women on the sidelines) who've dominated the Trump administration from the very beginning.
    By contrast, former President Barack Obama's circle of advisers in the face of the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa was hardly so monochromatic. Neither was it so abysmal in terms of gender diversity."
    White House task force on coronavirus another example of Trump administration's lack of diversity - CNNPolitics

    The doors closed on order of the local fire marshall, who was there. The arena was beyond legal capacity.
    But Nuzzi doesnt share that with her audience, does she?

    The exact same people who are today complaining that Trump's Coronavirus team is "too white and too male" have created this situation. It's the same people.

    She is only proposing these penalties against tech companies. Apparently she thinks its ok if CNN and the NYT knowingly spread disinformation.

    I'm always amazed at these clips where the same person's contrasting words are placed side by side. How is it that these dolts don't research to not contradict themselves. It's because Trump is and has been correct about the likes of this person. Fake News and enemy of the people when blatantly dishonest and deceiving.

    I'll add that these same morons who complain about how Trump performs maybe the most complex job in the world fail at doing their own jobs.

    Racist. And they all just sit and listen. No one challenges or shows outrage.
