Re: The Official Media bias thread ptIII

Dylan Byers story is starting to look like hit piece based on what Juan Williams is saying.

He is claiming that Hannity has a quick temper and as proof Byers says that the Fox News host called those he disagreed with a “jackass” at least 21 times on Twitter.

Re: The Official Media bias thread ptIII

I've had firearms training since 11 as well and I am hyperactivity, aggressively phobic about where I'm pointing my gun. They beat it into you like 12 million times. I have never and could never point one at somebody as a lark. Impossible. The guys fucking nutty if he really did that. Did he really do it?

Donna Brazile finally admits as a CNN commentator she relayed questions ahead of debates to Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary

As recently as February, Brazile would only say that the emails "allegedly" showed her forwarding the questions.



Who knew?

More importantly, who cares? This is a "scandal" that nobody would give a shit about in a student council president campaign, but Trumpkins harp on it like it's Watergate.

A rarity... something you proclaim that can actually be proven.

Are you honestly surprised? That's been part of the Trump faithful playbook from the beginning, blow up every minor thing about Clinton's campaign while deliberately downplaying the very real concerns about Trump.

Pretty skeezy behavior.

This is the kind of thing that didn't help Clinton. Democratic establishment misbehaving.

Still not as bad as anything Trump does on a daily basis, though.

Donna Brazile was lying on a daily basis.

I guess we better wait until Trump comes clean.

Re: The Official Media bias thread ptIII

Brazile was responsible for sharing questions prior to CNN's Democratic town halls/debates. It wasn't Clinton's fault.

If I'm taking a college course and my idiotic roommate sends unsolicited exam questions to me or plagiarizes from my paper, who is at fault? Technically, I should "rat" on my idiotic friend, but how many people actually do that? Not only would my friend get in trouble but I might, too.

Assuming Clinton even knew about the question sharing, she probably would have received essentially zero credit for ratting on Brazile, unless she did it BEFORE the debate. But even then, it probably would have hurt her.

Ooo. That was good. Sean Hannity is guilty the way a drug dealer is guilty. Sure, it's the customers who are the problem. But he's front and center supplying it.

Hannity is 200 pounds of shit stuffed into a 100 pound bag.

Can Hannity be that unaware of what an enormous douchebag he is?

Re: The Official Media bias thread ptIII

I love how Ted just slowly asks Sean to let him finish his sentence, and Sean can't even do that without two more interruptions as he's winding down.

A decent human being with the bare minimum of social awareness would say "I'm sorry Ted, please finish your thought" and then shut the fuck up.

Re: The Official Media bias thread ptIII

Hannity has already turned that moment into a PR opportunity, saying it was part of a 45-minute interview and CBS would never dare show the whole unedited interview. Plenty of idiots on Twitter cheering him on too.

It's the people who are the most unaware of how they are (be it crazy, douche, asshole, etc) who are the worst offenders of those qualities. Just like how Trump thinks is beyond all criticism, so too does Hannity.
