And? How is that bias? Should they not report the chaos in the campaign?
 

Remember when Sanders people talked about this? Well, now it's your turn to enjoy it. At least Trump deserves the scorn. It's still not at 18 negative articles from a single "news" outlet in less than 24 hours before the night of an election.
 

The kerfuffle over Melania's "plagiarism" foreshadowed what we're seeing now.

What's happening is that the reality has finally hit that the king and queen turds have floated to the top in their individual punch bowls. People are beginning to realize that they're next in line for a drink and that there are no other options. It's now merely a race to see who you can get to suck up that turd before you have to. If Trump goes away then the only other place to focus will be on Hillary and she damned sure doesn't want that to happen!

Actually it was the Trump supporters who were coming to Bernie's defense on these boards. I don't know why you're acting like that wasn't the case. I'm well aware of WaPo's disgracerful "16 negatives articles about sanders in 16" hours after Sanders cleared a 34 point polling disadvantage to win Michigan. A feat he achieved in only 48 hours after one debate where he knocked Hillary around like a ragdoll.

Opinions stories shouldn't be the leading NEWS story on a NEWS WEBSITE. NEWS should be leading articles on a NEWS website. This shouldn't be hard to understand but for some like yourself it's confusing.

Republicans have been enjoying it for years. It was actually a turn of events to see it happen to the left.

We have a presidential nominee of a major party who isn't endorsing leaders of the party, like Paul Ryan, dozens of the party members have had to distance themselves from the candidate numerous times in the last week or two. Veterans groups are denouncing him. He's dropping in the polls.

I know that some people like to pretend that this is all just opinion, but these are all facts. Sure, the media is going to sensationalize what's going on, but they aren't just making **** up, and they aren't reporting on this because they are in the tank for Hillary. This is all red meat for an industry that profits from drama regardless of party.
 
Yeah, how dare the media report that the REPUBLICAN governor of Ohio, the state where the REPUBLICAN convention was held, didn't show up at the convention. That's news, but it makes Trump look bad so the media show have ignored it. Right? LOL

I'm sure that's happened in the past but the media didn't report on it, but now that the evil media are all out to get Trump they reported it. (sarcasm off)

What a bunch of wussies the conservative have turned into.
 

Then maybe Trump needs to learn how to behave like an adult and a Presidential candidate, and these stories - most of which are probably very true - will stop.
 


Gotta say, Ozzy didn't sound too bad live!


One of the few singers who is actually easier to understand when he sings than when he speaks.

The Republicans have also been engaging in it for years, if we're being honest. It was Republicans who literally turned John Kerry's purple heart into a negative, against a president who never served in combat. That's astounding.

Yeah, some Trump supporters came to his aide, I'll give you that. But the majority of them --the ones I've met in real life and on this board-- preferred to call Sanders a dirty socialist, like Trump did. Like I said, Trump has earned his negative press, and he certainly got plenty of free press (2 billion dollars worth of free ad time) during his primary. He's past his honeymoon phase with corporate media, and honestly after ranting about judge's being Mexican-American and viciously attacking the father of a Muslim soldier who literally died for America... There's not exactly tears rolling down my eyes for Trump.

Because the news is supposed to report the news - and that's IT. If they report an opinion as part of the headline, then you no longer have a news organization, but a propaganda machine intent on shaping views. They call Trump's campaign "chaotic". Why? What's so chaotic about it? Because he has big rallies with a lot of support? Hillary and the DNC have been caught red-handed RIGGING the nomination. Wouldn't you call that chaotic? Have the MSM reported on this? That the DNC has cheated millions of voters and undermined the election process with a fraudulent nominee? Why aren't they focusing on THAT chaos. That they aren't is 100 % solid proof that the media is nothing but a tool of deception that fools like you don't question.
 
The evil side of the first amendment...............................media doing favors for access.

Trump is a gaff a minute..............................no need for the media to be playing the accomplis.

About eight years ago my son - who was about 13 at the time - came home and proudly had me listen to the ringtone on his cell phone - it was Ozzy's 'Crazy Train'! I'd never introduced him to the rock 'n roll I always listened to, from The Who to Pink Floyd to Heart to B.O.C. and Black Sabbath (that's what I get for having an older brother who was a DJ for half a century)...but it made me grin from ear to ear watching him rock out to Led Zep's Kashmir....

I've long thought that in the generations to come, the 60's and 70's (maybe even including the 50's and 80's) will be seen as a golden age of music on par with the great classics such as Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart.

Freedom of the press means the press can print or show whatever the **** they want.
 
The GOP's goin' off the rails on a crazy train!

Greetings, TheGoverness. :2wave:

Nah, they're not going off the rails - they are just going around in a circle, day after day... after day...!

I've been pretty clear since the beginning that I will not vote for Trump. This doesn't have anything to do with supporting or not supporting him, though.

Front page news is supposed to be actual news... at least it was in a different time. This stuff isn't news. It's opinion, speculation, gossip, rumor, etc... How many LEAD stories were there that were pure speculation about the Clinton campaign coming unglued when she was losing states to Bernie or being investigated by the FBI? Are we to believe that there were no voices behind the scenes in the DNC quietly wondering what the hell they were doing backing such a flawed candidate? I'm sure there were probably a few stories written that may have made it briefly to page one but nothing like the feeding frenzy we're seeing right now.

But you are correct in that only Trump can make it go away by not acting like such a douche bag.
