Re: The Official Media bias thread ptIII

I also checked Fox News earlier today and noted the absence of a major headline about health care. The top story had a title something like "Republicans Strike Back," and it was about how Republicans want the DOJ to appoint another special prosecutor to go after Clinton, Obama, and Comey.

Wolf Blitzer asks Colleague Gloria Borger about Bad Sources (source that got it wrong is a "good source"?)

So her sources told her that Reince Priebus wouldn't be fired on Friday, or that he wouldn't be fired at all? Is this an example of the "Destroy Trump Media"?

Re: The Official Media bias thread ptIII

I'd bet you anything that Trump's approval with his base would drop some 20-25 points as soon as Fox News pivots.
And that should vividly spell out what a danger they are to the country at large.

John Oliver takes on Alex Jones. It's interesting to see Jones' crazy outside of his famous gay-frogs rant.

Re: The Official Media bias thread ptIII

Remember that whole Seth Rich story and how it was the only way Sean Hannity could get an erection?

Well... It was all bullshit, and now Fox is being sued over it.

Essentially the whole thing is admitted to be fake (which we knew, of course) and pressure to run the story came from the WH and Trump himself.

Odd. Normally it would tell me "not available in your country"... not just "not available". Plus all the other LastWeekTonight videos work.

I disagree, as most Trump friends I know don't care for many FoxNews pundits who went after him in the Primary. Megyn Kelly, Dana Perino, Charles Krauthammer, etc are all hated because they didn't bow to Trump last year. I would even venture to say his supporters will dig in more as the media keeps going after him.

In saying that, you are giving FoxNews, Cable News, LateNight WAY too much credit as it's such a small audience compared to the population in this country. Bill O'Reilly in his heyday would average 2.5 million viewers a night, while Jon Stewart in his heyday would average 1.5 million viewers a night. That is about 1% of the voting population, and about 95% of them already have their mind made up anyways.

Douche (masking as conservative family-values man) behave like a douche, news at 11...

Fox News' Eric Bolling Sent Unsolicited Lewd Text Messages To Colleagues, Sources Say

Quote:
Eric Bolling, a longtime Fox News host, sent an unsolicited photo of male genitalia via text message to at least two colleagues at Fox Business and one colleague at Fox News, a dozen sources told HuffPost.

Recipients of the photo confirmed its contents to HuffPost, which is not revealing their identities. The women, who are Bolling’s current and former Fox colleagues, concluded the message was from him because they recognized his number from previous work-related and informal interactions. The messages were sent several years ago, on separate occasions.

The women did not solicit the messages, which they told colleagues were deeply upsetting and offensive. One of the recipients said that when she replied to Bolling via text, telling him never to send her such photos again, he did not respond. Four people, outside of the recipients, confirmed to HuffPost they’d seen the photo, and eight others said the recipients had spoken to them about it.

For this story, HuffPost spoke to 14 sources in and out of Fox News and Fox Business, all of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity either because they currently work at the networks and aren’t allowed to speak to members of the press without prior authorization or because they have confidentiality agreements with Fox News and its parent company 21st Century Fox.

Re: The Official Media bias thread ptIII

Seems like a fitting thread.




I can't say much for the kids he tried to go after. I can say that it takes practice to talk back and forth about an issue. Alex Jones sits in front of a mic and hashes out his thoughts for several hours daily. You can't just walk up to someone and expect them to have conversational skills. I'm 33 and have a somewhat hard time talking to people about anything. Alex Jones was going full-on GOTCHA in that clip.

Then of course he starts talking about the CIA or some shit and loses me.

Jones is a space case but that other dude is a gibbering gibbon of a human.

It's obviously staged. Could you imagine a more embarrassing liberal stereotype to come along just at the moment Jones is filming on the street? And the way the camera perfectly frames their two faces when they square off, its total fakery but his fans will eat it up. It's like wrestling, Jones takes on the evil "Obnoxious Liberal" and stands his ground!

With so few Nazis around did the protesters just decide to fight the Boston police instead?

Mobs are mobs. There's no good mob. They show up to stop nazis or something and end up being mean to one another.

What percentage of people do you really think go to a rally or event with the intent of creating violence? You make it sound like everyone who shows up to oppose fascism is there to throw pipe bombs.
