    I think so but I'm not sure. It's pretty much known now that the Mueller investigation was a scam but libs still believe in it.

    In all seriousness I get tired of the Russia, Russia, Russia ****. Yes, they interfere in our elections but they are nothing compared to how the media interferes. It's not even close.

    saw one of the headlines on CNN today calling out WGN for being a propaganda tool for the the GOP. Oh my word can they get any more hypocritical ?!?!?

    Who else was shocked this Arab dude was taken into custody alive? He did get shot in the leg but I thought both sides might rather see it ended in that grocery store.

    If you had Muslim terrorist as the next mass shooting perp you hit it like Loyola making it to the Sweet 16. The chalk brackets had a sexually disturbed guy or a frustrated white supremacist.

    I'm not surprised. Chaos by its nature is random.

    I read one article on this that went out of its way to draw on the recent GA shooting, not as gun violence...but as anti-Asian violence. The article actually put in "and six of the victims were Asian".

    The media is a propaganda tool and they work via what the Army referred to as Themes and Messages....pick your 3 or 4 most important themes and repeat, repeat, repeat.

    Right now one of the media's favorite themes is providing any and all messaging that ties any event to any shred of race bias. They know they need hispanics and other minorities to be just as reliable and dedicated a voting block as blacks have been. They don't ever want them to vote on any issue beyond race and the perception that the GOP is biased if not outright racist. hispanics and asians have historically not been single issue voters and were at least open to GOP candidates. the Dems want to change this.

    Damn, if a Republican candidate sent a picture of a KKK hood to somebody that would be the end of that Republican. The social media freakout would be deafening, and it would end that guy's career. Furthermore, it would be the biggest story in the country for a week.

    While The New York Times alleged that the Project Veritas journalism was “deceptive” or “disinformation,” Wood said that better described their insertion of opinions into their news stories.

    When illegals start taking jobs in the media that's when, and only when, they'll change their narrative.

    Speaking of defamation, DC Circuit Judge Laurence Silberman has called for a reversal of New York Times v. Sullivan. Link. He focuses on the partisanship of the media (calls the Times and the Post "Democratic Party broadsheets"), but there's a lot more to it than that. Getting rid of that decision wouldn't make the media less partisan. It would just make it less unprofessional. They'd have to think twice before saying something inaccurate. Standards would matter again, and that would be a good thing.

    In the Veritas article it appears one of the NY Times reporters is an Astor. Talk about white privilege. She's clearly a Liberal and out of control.

    Of course, other than Ross Douthat, sometimes Brett Stephens, and occasionally David Brooks, that pretty much describes everybody at the Times.

    Maybe they’ll treat them like Jared’s buddy treated Jamal Khoshogi. Was he an illegal?

    The media industry is propaganda. Not because there is conspiracy or collusion. But because those who run CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, etc all have the same world view. Therefore they make news which conforms with how they see the world. If you don't know it's propaganda then you are being manipulated by it. Fair warning.

    Now we know the reason for Tucker Carlson's attempt to distract with his preemptive attack on media that were investigating his background.

    There are actual serious problems with so-called real news and you concern yourself with some guy who's basically a shock jock with an OPINION show.

    Sorry, I thought this thread was to comment on the Media industry. Did the "real news" that we need to be concerned about just start today?

    Let me check to see if this is your first comment in the 184 page thread, sir. Hmmm...the last 3 pages of The Media Industry alone. It's almost as if you are intending to be a walking demonstration of hypocrisy. Intentional? That would be giving too much credit where unearned.

    I don't think you understand the meaning of hypocrisy. Hypocrisy would be me going after Maddow during her high school years for some cheap "gotcha" moment. Once again your reading comprehension comes up short. Look how I used the words "real news' and your ridiculous comeback. Geez.
