So has the rest of the media.
Every time Trump looks at a camera or says something stupid , it's all over the left wing media's sites.

So , your point is ? :?

So , what's the bitch ???
:?

Trump has gotten more free publicity from ' news ' outlets on the left than he has paid for himself.
Why bitch about Hannity ?
Seems FAUX news has more viewers than CNN & MSNBC combined so is that the bitch ? Because more people watch FAUX and it rubs you guys the wrong way ?
Please explain guys.

Please read this transcript and show me how Shrillary DID NOT lie.

Gowdy: Good morning, Director Comey. Secretary Clinton said she never sent or received any classified information over her private e-mail, was that true?
Comey: Our investigation found that there was classified information sent.

Gowdy: It was not true?

Comey: That's what I said.

Gowdy: OK. Well, I'm looking for a shorter answer so you and I are not here quite as long. Secretary Clinton said there was nothing marked classified on her e-mails sent or received. Was that true?

Comey: That's not true. There were a small number of portion markings on I think three of the documents.

Gowdy: Secretary Clinton said "I did not e-mail any classified information to anyone on my e-mail there was no classified material." That is true?

Comey: There was classified information emailed. Comey turned out to be wrong the marks that were in the emails were artifacts the emails were not classified.

Gowdy: Secretary Clinton used one device, was that true?

Comey: She used multiple devices during the four years of her term as Secretary of State. I have used one device for the last 5 years, but have replaced it 4 times, come now you can figure that out right?

Gowdy: Secretary Clinton said all work related emails were returned to the State Department. Was that true?

Comey: No. We found work related email, thousands, that were not returned.

Gowdy: Secretary Clinton said neither she or anyone else deleted work related emails from her personal account.Do you really think she went throught the email, hell know, her lawyers did, human error plane and simple.

Comey: That's a harder one to answer. We found traces of work related emails in — on devices or in space. Whether they were deleted or when a server was changed out something happened to them, there's no doubt that the work related emails that were removed electronically from the email system.

Gowdy: Secretary Clinton said her lawyers read every one of the emails and were overly inclusive. Did her lawyers read the email content individually?

Comey: No. You have to scan when you are working with that mutch material are serious she would have never met the deadline if they read them, wise up, I'm sure you have dealt with logistics before.

Gowdy: Well, in the interest of time and because I have a plane to catch tomorrow afternoon, I'm not going to go through any more of the false statements but I am going to ask you to put on your old hat. Faults exculpatory statements are used for what?

Comey: Well, either for a substantive prosecution or evidence of intent in a criminal prosecution.

Gowdy: Exactly. Intent and consciousness of guilt, right?

Comey: That is right? That is what's called a bullshit question.

http://www.cnbc.com/2016/07/07/rep-trey ... ntent.html


Once again nothing she said is mutially exclusive from what he said, they both can be telling the truth and are, this is another attempt to tarnish a Clinton...whats up with that?

LOL!!! Man, that's the funniest thing I've read all week! You're too much.



The media has vetted the Clinton's for the last 25 years, particularly Hillary. How often does and has Fox News vetted Republican's if you think your so fucking smart? :roll: Name 5 instances. I bet you can't even name 2 funny guy. :roll: :smurf:

It doesn't matter because here's the thing: All major media is controlled by 5 conglomerates. So when you say vetted, do you mean a) corporate media is hell-bent on reporting all political news whether good or bad for both federal parties? or b) corporate media takes their respective donations from the federal parties' business interests and only publishes news that those parties demand not to be leaked out?

So lets see, your baby bomber, TPP outsourcing democrat hero Obama is spending a trillion more dollars upgrading US nuclear weapons.

I'd be curious in hearing why do you think we need to spend a trillion taxpayer dollars more on upgrading US nuclear bombs...and why that should be a priority over all the other things we need.

With so many other pressing needs, we would like to hear why you think that's necessary.

I'll give you some help, I'll start it for ya:

FOX, NBC, ABC, CBS. The people at the top all live the same lifestyle. A very extravagant lifestyle. Are there pics of the houses owned by the highest paid NBC news execs and the houses owned by the highest paid FOX news execs? I bet you can't tell 'em apart.

When I was 14 years old I figured out that Donald Trump was untrustworthy.

Tiboudre, it's probably only one conglomerate if you could actually get right down to the bottom of it.

In my imagination these exec's are enemies by day and friends by night and, whilst in NYC they all live and, schedules permitting, party at Trump's

Here's Bill Moyers:

War & Peace

The Trillion Dollar Question the Media Have Neglected to Ask Presidential Candidates

The American people will be footing the bill — but, by and large, they haven't heard much about our country's planned trillion-dollar nuclear weapons upgrade.

Mar 21, 2016 - Although President Obama began his administration with a dramatic public ... This trillion-dollar nuclear weapons buildup has yet to inspire any ...

http://billmoyers.com/story/the-trillio ... andidates/

and 442, 000 other reports...

So now you're informed of your little trillion dollar bomber oversight....

So please fill in the blank for us:

No snow, subject changing, or distraction SPACEBOMBER, cuz we'll all notice you didn't answer the question:

We need to spend an additional trillion dollars upgrading US nuclear bombs because________________________________________________.

A) Like I said in earlier post, it doesn't matter.
B) You didn't answer my question on your definition of 'vetted'.
C) Your specific quote was "Democrats have always been thoroughly vetted by ALL of the media." There was no mention of Fox News specifically.

Yes, on paper it's 5, but in reality it is all one.

A) Apparently it does matter...to you.
B.1) We're obviously not discussing medicine for animals so figuring the definition shouldn't be too hard.
B.2) By asking me what "my" definition of "vetting" is, is a concession from you that I'm right.
C) Fox News is one of many in ALL media.


Bottom line....you couldn't come up with even one example of Fox News vetting Republican's...which is why instead of answering with an answer, you answered with questions.

I enjoy network news because, as a fan of F Zappa, I support behavoir modification. I also love to see people being forced to give in to peer pressure. I also like the idea of endless arguments about right and wrong. Those who insist on being right fascinate me because it's always the ones who are convinced they are right who do not commit the worst crimes against humanity.

I only wish there were more saints on tv such as the news anchors on Fox and CNN. I worship news anchors. As a fan of F Zappa, I think people should be forced to choose sides and provide examples that support their choices. I mean, Coke or Pepsi, bitches. Which is it gonna be? You can't have both and the difference between Coke and Pepsi is HUGE. It's a much larger difference than, say, the difference between Coke and water. Or a hot Big Mac and the sun.
