A lot of Networks use dynamic page for it's front page meaning the top stories are series of shots that change every 5 seconds or so. This negative story about Trump is hardcoded into front page, good job CNN.

Trump is the architect of his own negative press. Running his mouth about corrupted elections as if the US were some corrupt Eastern European country was a surefire way to get negative press coverage and bury everything else, especially Clinton email-gate, pr. 6,536,864,368,854. What was the last great revelation that was uncovered? That Hillary fine tunes her speeches to fit her audience? Or was it a politician might hold a private position that conflicts with a publicly held position? Yes that's front page material there

Goes to show that professional politicians develop some skills that are useful in politics. Carefully parsing messages vs LOUD ANGRY 3:30am TWEETING. Not exactly a surprise which one is going to end up getting 24/7 media coverage.


Hey look, the cautious-to-a-fault candidate isn't saying stupid things. Also, dog bites man. News (about the other candidate) at 11.

Related example there. Trump responds to claim of sexual assault by calling the woman ugly. Holy shit Donald, way to both miss the point ("I'd have sexually assaulted her if she was hot!") and double down on the sexist trope.


Dude simply cannot help himself.

My comments come from the bills written, who wrote them, what the bills say, and who voted for them, those who voted for them and what they said about the bills and why they voted for them. And then there is what the media says. As Jesus says, "it is not what a person says that matters, it is what that person does". Therefore, the nature of the beast matters. I've said to people who vote for the democrats, "Look at this bill the democrats made and voted for". There reply is, "Oh no. That's not what democrats would do. That is what Republicans do". Why would voting democrats believe the people they vote for wouldn't make the bills, and vote for those bills? Where did the information come from that caused them, the voters of democrats, to believe these lies? There is basically two-three sources they get information- the people they vote for, the liberal media and, what? The unions. For the last 20 years the unions have taken huge hits by the democrats. Why would they support the democrats when they would have better help from the republicans if they started talking to republicans? Times and positions do change.

I was just pointing out the (often observed) irony that most people who scream about the 'liberal media' -- as if it's one giant thing -- get that opinion from Fox News -- the biggest cable news network, and the most gleefully biased. It's usually the same folks who believe -- again from Fox News -- that they are persecuted for their religion when upwards of 90 % of the country belongs to that religion.

I have no ideas what bills you're referencing. I know the last few presidencies, democrat and republican, have seen to it that five or so organizations are allowed to own almost 100% of the media. I find that troubling.

I don't believe Republicans are better for unions -- most ardently oppose and vilify them, unless we're talking about police unions, because USA! USA!

Only about 70% of folks in the US identify as Xtian. I'm also willing to bet a large number of those folks merely identify as such as they've never thought about it and really are not religious in any demonstrable way.

maybe you haven't heard of this thing called statute of limitations?

also maybe you've never had to report sexual assault but the process sounds like it really really sucks

well folks aren't picking it out of a hat. even if they're not ardent practitioners there are typically cultural components that go along with religion, whether it is conscious or not. 

 

that is to say that it is demonstrated although perhaps not explicitly as such. so i guess you could call it 'systemic spirituality'.

Wotan is my deity.

i'd agree that the figure is not 90% in any case.

 

and while i'm not a christian (or Wotanist) i'm very well-acquainted, put er that way. it's incredible how different the various grains and strains can be and i wonder if Fox has the same reach into - for instance - catholicism as practiced by folks from south of the various borders as it does with irish catholics, protestants, baptists, etc etc. i'd guess that the number gets whittled somewhat.

 

on the other hand, national politics and media narratives freely conflate religion, socioeconomic status, culture, race, etc so i really wouldn't wonder at somebody of majority status adopting a victim's pose.
