  1. ⚖️Are the media capable of giving Trump fair coverage?⚖️
    Well, if they wanted to, which they don’t, Trump is too big a threat to progressive values to even fake fairness.

  2. Bill Shine, a former co-president of Fox News and top lieutenant to the network’s founder, Roger Ailes, has spoken with White House officials about taking a position on President Trump’s communications team, according to several people briefed on the discussions. (NYT)

    • Well, unless he is going to start a new White House Television Network, I don’t really see that he is that qualified. Fox News went downhill after Bill Shine left.

  3. People actually tuned out Al Gore Special on CNN as shows before and after had higher ratings.

    • I guess that people are tired of the Crazed Sex Poodle running around like Chicken Little squawking, “The sky is warming!” and “Beware of ManBearPig!”

      • Love South Park reference!

        Al is a alarmist and hypocrite and a good snake oil salesman. My fellow Meteorologists and I are amused how he hooks people with phony or manipulated data and statistics. All his “predictions” have been wrong.

        • He’s been playing this game for well over 30 years. Pretty good for someone who flunked Physical Science in college. But, people buy it because he is “serial” about it.

  4. Today’s most popular links:
    5 contradict many claims
    4 journey to motherhood
    3 bizarre lawsuit
    2 lying to Congress
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 New CNN hire (famous for lying to Congress).

  5. I don’t know when, a long time ago maybe, people did not intersperse ideas and emotions so much, but that was before the current populism and way before the populism of the 1960’s.
    We all watch people of all over the spectrum tossing out today’s word salad’s and we then declare our surprise, disdain, anger, agreement, etc.
    Maybe its time to start discussing the real ideas of Liberty ( Individual Liberty), of Freedom ( Individual Freedom) , then later delve into the our nation’s Economics, Society and other issues.
    Can you smart people somehow tell this to the directors at “the media” and tell them that most people really want a real discussion about the USA, our Freedom, our Country, our Constitution and our rights and duties as its Citizens in this day and age?. And it not just that I believe in the actual Wall, and protecting the voting rights of real American citizens, its a lot of other things too.
    Is there any way you can convince the powers that be at ” the media” to be concerned about it at all, other than an 1 hour special hosted by Wolf or Megyn ?
    I am just asking for a friend.

    • sounds like you want to become a libertarian. unfortunately there is no mention in any founding document that human liberty and rights as described in every single founding document does not once discern between American citizens and people. indeed, they are clear that not only Americans citizens have natural human rights. ALL means all after all.
      lots of things people can do to sift dangerous people out, but that is not the goal of trumpers, they want fewer immigrants, and the fewer entrants need to look and sound more like them. truth. deal with it.

  6. The Five Video , seen as as a person from Ohio.
    Dana Perino does not finish her adjectives. She references “the people i know”, then drops off the ” IN THE DEEP STATE” part.
    Dana, come out and tell the truth. Stop dissembling. You and your husband are deep DEEP state people.
    Do not lie by omission of the actual facts about YOU. Dana
