    This is exactly why I said when mulling over this threat and Trump's commitment to extreme vetting watch "Patriot's Day".

    It's a quick reminder just how much damage two terrorists can do with an easily purchased pressure cooker.

    I have an alibi
    Not sure if SH does
    But, if it was him, probably due to an overabundance of testosterone

    I'm sure FoxNews eventually covered the Flynn resignation but it wasn't "Breaking News" enough to forego this Tucker Carlson hard hitting news? Notice the crawler at the bottom of the screen is referencing the reason Flynn resigned.

    BTW- I wouldn't call Flynn a "traitor".

    You're welcome. More interesting than Flynn resigning?

    It speaks to the polarization of the audiences. I'm not familiar with Baier but of the rest, Anderson Cooper is the most unbiased journalist of the lot from what I've witnessed.

    A majority of Americans have grown sick of the media. One of the biggest problems is that there is no penalty for them being wrong so often. They just come out the next day and start spewing more wrongness.

    If it were easier to sue them, it would clean things up pretty quick. But this is never going to happen. A public person (politician, pro athlete, ...) stands only a small chance of ever beating the media in court (Hulk Hogan was the exception, not the rule). And even non-public people (like any one of us) have an long, expensive, uphill slog just for the chance to get to a jury.

    The one glimmer of hope I see to improve this situation is with TV news. Cable, of course, offers the lucrative double-revenue stream. But the more folks cut the cable, the more we begin to get their attention. At some point, it will catch up with them, just like with ESPN. I think the same thing we see at ESPN is going to begin to creep into cable news. And sooner than later.

    Once again, Chris Wallace skewers Reince Priebus on Fox News Sunday. In all of Obama's 8 years, I never saw MTP, Face the Nation, or George S. give any of Obama's staff anything close to this. Fox just continues to prove that their news division (not opinion shows) is the most balanced.

    I didnt see it, but Wallace has always been solid and makes a fair point. If I were him, I probably would have done the same. However, it also gave Priebus a fabulous opening to launch into the press again -- that they are effectively the PR-wing of the DNC, the disparate treatment of the two presidents, the Wikileaks releases that so matter-of-factly showed their complicity, and so on. He should have been ready for that question and tied off on it.

    I feel like the Wikileaks-Press stuff in particular is something my side has left on the table. If it were me, I would make a point at pressers of calling on those who we know were sending articles to the DNC for pre-approval. Bait them into asking something nasty. Then drop the Wikieleaks bomb on the them. I feel like the majority of Americans never fully caught on to exactly what they were doing or how widespread it was (see list a few posts above). It's not like Politico was writing about this or CNN was doing segments on it. So, I say expose it again until everyone does know.




    Below is the front of a Sunday Times section -- kind of the opposite of Wallace
    Are these people blowing the assassination dogwhistle?

    As most everyone knows, the faux outrage of CNN and others is based on partisan, biased in favor of Liberals, horse manure.

    I hope Trump continues to bash them until they all break down and shed crocodile tears, and some real ones.

    I'm pretty sure your source is garbage. Check out the crawler at the bottom....VP-Elect Pence....that piece would have taken place before the inauguration not during a resignation.
