    When Don Lemon was going on last night my wife (much more lib than me) said, "these guys hate Trump, and I get it, but they're gonna hate on him no matter". I said that Fox and CNN were very similar in that the editorial side was very slanted but the news side was more newsy. I think Fox and CNN during the day are different than the Hannity/Carlson/Ingraham and Lemon/Cuomo/Cooper talking head shows are. If we could get these prime time hours out of our system we'd be better off.

    You obviously never watch CNN morning shows.

    C'mon man! They know Biden can't give a cogent answer to any more difficult question than that.

    Did they fact check his answer? Shame on them.

    And isn't this what's really bad about the media? It's not how tough they are on Trump that's so bad. It's the over-the-top ball licking they dish out for Democrats.

    Like some people here who pretend to be Republican. Some people here go out of their way to agree with liberal posters here.

    Edit: At least the media doesn't pretend anymore.

    That's not fair to @Mr. Deez . Just because he doesn't adopt a blind far-right narrative and actually evaluates information to form his own opinion doesn't make him any less of a Republican than others who simply follow the party line, even when it's NOT aligned with the Republican values (e.g. states rights, fiscal conservatism).

    My perspective on @Mr. Deez is that he's simply moored to a set of values and principles that most closely correlates to the Republican party and eschews the tribe mentality.

    Bromantic thing y'all have there.

    Um...I've recently said I didn't support student loan forgiveness, supported abortion up to the point of viability (22-26 weeks) and am fiscally conservative. No, I don't "always follow the Democrat Party Line".

    Team before country though, right?

    Some Democrats, I believe, have actually said that as well since it is lunacy to go along with those.

    Nonetheless, the bromance is nauseating to the rest of us.

    No more nauseating than the affection shown to @Joe Fan by many, you included, I'm sure. Respect is an odd thing.

    I don’t see any level of adoration for Biden from liberals. They like that he is not Trump. Trump is treated as a Demi-god by his numerous lemmings on this board, who can’t see why anybody could object to any of his great accomplishments

    Why would anyone object to things that make it better for other Americans and even for people in other countries?
    Very odd thing to post

    Is that the Alternate reality view for the Trump Administration? I'd argue reality is much more nuanced.

    Oh please Husker explain how your reality is more "nuanced"

    What changed?
    And argument can be made that US media collectively sitting on the Hunter Biden story was an in-kind political contribution
