In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold.

    Bias in Media or just a conspiracy theory?

    I agree that anyone with a brain should know this, but I personally know people who watch these outlets and claim they are completely unbiased. I live with a close relative who essentially watches CNN 12 hours a day, and I have seen first-hand the effect that it has had on him. He constantly...

    Bias in Media or just a conspiracy theory?

    To give a current example, Stealers Wheel, consider this: Hunter Biden is currently under federal criminal investigation, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Delaware. In other words, the son of a sitting U.S. president is under federal criminal investigation. I have...

    Bias in Media or just a conspiracy theory?

    Quick thought experiment: Shortly after the November election, then-Senator-elect Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, a former football coach with no political experience, incorrectly identified the three branches of government during an interview. He said the three branches of government are the House...

    Bias in Media or just a conspiracy theory?

    I must say I strongly disagree with this. Trump has definitely not helped the conversation on media bias by calling it all "fake news," but as someone who really has no horse in this race, I think the right definitely has a point about media bias. Now, that's not to say they don't have their own...

    What is your bipartisan compromise on gun control?

    You're the one who brought the decision up though. You brought up the decision thinking it meant something you agreed with and when it was shown to not mean that, you then dismissed it, saying that decision are wrong sometimes. Seems a bit dishonest.

    What is your bipartisan compromise on gun control?

    I actually agree wholeheartedly with what you are saying. On too many issues (guns in particular), people claim to want compromise, but are also unwilling to give an inch to the other side. Compromise means if one side gets ten things that they want, the other side also gets ten things they...

    What is your bipartisan compromise on gun control?

    Wouldn't this seem like it would exacerbate overincarceration?

    What is your bipartisan compromise on gun control?

    Looking to clarify something...How do you define "assault weapon"?

    What is your bipartisan compromise on gun control?

    Thank you for adding that. A lot of misinformation out there, and a lot of people don't understand that background checks are generally required with only a few exceptions. Thank you for clarifying that. Even I may have not been fully informed on the extent to which background checks are already...

    What is your bipartisan compromise on gun control?

    I felt that this would be a way of actually reducing the restrictions for law-abiding gun owners and getting rid of bureaucratic regulations that imo do nothing to make people safer (i.e., bans on interstate sales and each state having their own concealed carry rules). To ask a follow up...

    What is your bipartisan compromise on gun control?

    Agreed. I think there's a lot of truth to what you said. The culture is going to have to be the biggest part of fixing the issue, and I definitely don't think the media helps. Perhaps, another item that could be added to the above list could be a task force or board that would study the impact...

    What is your bipartisan compromise on gun control?

    Here's mine: Enhanced background checks Require background checks for gun show sales and internet sales Prohibit those on the terrorist watch list from purchasing firearms, but allow them to appeal the decision in an expedited way to ensure due process 50-state reciprocity agreement for...

    Clear Cut Example of Media Bias

    The most-watched news in America, based on viewership, are ABC News, NBC News, and CBS News. They are commonly referred to as the "Big 3" because many years ago, they were pretty much the only three news channels around. Here are 10 examples of them covering it...

    Clear Cut Example of Media Bias

    I'm the one who made the original post, and as I explained, I was highlighting how two similar events were covered by the same outlet. I plan on creating additional threads on media bias from other outlets, including Fox. If you want to start a thread discussing Fox News bias, please do so. I...

    Clear Cut Example of Media Bias

    And as for one last comment on it, there are of course too many outlets out there for me to discuss how each of them covered the two gaffes. I wanted to just focus on one outlet, and in this instance I chose CNN and showed how they exemplified a clear left-wing bias. I could have practically...

    Clear Cut Example of Media Bias

    Of course OANN should call out Tuberville, but OANN is complete trash that is essentially just fake news. They are infinitely more biased than CNN, and I don't think it is fair to compare those two outlets. I didn't mean for this to come off as an "MSM" complaint post. I simply wanted to point...

    Clear Cut Example of Media Bias

    There are not three chambers of government. There are two chambers of Congress, and there are three branches of government. There are not three chambers of government any more than there are the three branches of government are the House, Senate, and Presidency. Tuberville deserved to be called...

    Clear Cut Example of Media Bias

    Yes, that is my overall point. However, I was only discussing this one instance of bias that I noticed by CNN. I simply presented what I felt was a straight forward example of bias by CNN, and several people have challenged me on it, defending CNN and claiming that this is not an example of...

    Clear Cut Example of Media Bias

    I have never said or suggested that. Please see my above comments. No. After Trump's speech, he deserved to be criticized for what he said. If a Democratic president in the future does the exact same thing (which none ever has and I doubt any ever would), then he or she deserves the exact same...
