CNN this morning

By TwoScoopsMcGee   2016 Oct 13, 9:08am   1 link   4,770 views   57 comments   watch (0)   quote      

Again, this morning.

* Nothing about Needy Latinos
* Nothing about the Catholic Bashing by Hillary Aides
* Nothing about Clinton's staff joke about their own lack of diversity.
* Nothing about discussing how much Algeria needs to pay to the Clintons to get off a Terror State List.
* Nothing about Saudis giving CF $1M for Bill's Birthday

Instead:

* King Bimbul of Thailand Dying
* Cyndi Lauper endorsing Hillary
* Grope Story
* Russia's role in the Election (but NOTHING on the Podesta leaks)
* A picture of a mountain valley
* Bob Dylan Nobel Prize

Not even in the sidebar.

I guarantee you if top Trump aides wrote in an email titled "Needy Latinos", the Media would have the vapors and it would dominate 3-5 News Cycles.

Right and that wouldn't be news either.

You're acting like a shameless partisan with no ethical standards now. You're making the same accusations as the radical left. I suggest you define what you consider right and what you consider wrong and then start over.

But unwitnessed, unsubstantiated Grope allegations are? How about a private convo about sex on a bus?

Twohey is doing another "Brewer Lane" on Trump, but this time with Media-affiliated, Well-Connected NY Dem-voting WASP women.

Excellent.

Now, how about the Admission that Hillary's inner sanctum knew damn well Qatar and Saudi Arabia was funding ISIS and Al Nusra and Al Qaeda - but took money anyway.

1. Saudi is a nation of nearly 29 million individuals. It is certain that some individuals in Saudi are participating in terrorism. It is also certain that some American citizens are participating in terrorism. Do you hold the United States to the same level of criticism as Saudi Arabia? The Saudi government is not participating with or funding ISIS and Al Qaeda. In fact both organizations pose an immediate threat to the Saudi government and the Saudi government routinely has suspected terrorists executed.

Claiming that 'Saudi Arabia', one of the most important nations to United States international policy, should be blacklisted as evil and money from Saudi considered tainted is asinine. Do you want to embargo their oil too or just use it to malign the Clintons? "Oh but please please keep selling us discounted fossil fuel!"

2. A charity takes money from any source. You STILL have not connected the Clinton foundation to any wrongdoing. In fact the Clinton foundation financial statements are public and the charity receives outstanding ratings from everyone.

"Fox News has a habit of ignoring memorable speeches critical of Republican nominee Donald Trump. The network infamously skipped Gold Star father Khizr Khan’s rebuke of Trump at the Democratic National Convention. And today, it chose not to cut to Michelle Obama’s powerful speech from New Hampshire, in which she offered a scathing and personal critique of Trump’s remarks about women and the growing list of sexual assault allegations against him."

I still don't see any Wikileaks articles.

If Manafort, Conway, or Cohen had leaked emails that had just one of : Catholic Spring, Needy Latinos, Supprting TPP Draft Letter (in early 2015), "Didn't come off like a bitch this time", almost exact wording of a debate question, tricking former Nominee opponent with token superficial Superdelegate Reform, top aides worried her attitudes about ordinary Americans will be revealed, etc. --- it would be CNN.Com top headline for a week - each and any, not necessarily all of them.

Exactly my point.

Less than 48 hours ago, Bill Clinton called Trump supporters "Rednecks" in a stump speech for his wife, the Presidential Candidate. Can't get any closer than a spouse.
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/oct/12/bill-clinton-donald-trump-base-is-your-standard-re/

This morning MSNBC (we already have CNN). No mention of Bill calling Trump supporters "Rednecks".

I guess the everybody at most of the major networks and outlets has decided for America what's important. That's called pushing a narrative, not reporting the news.

But Bill's speech isn't "Needy Latinos" "We need a Catholic Spring" "Bill Richardson is a dick" "She didn't come off as a bitch this time" "She doesn't want to apologize (again)" "Here is a draft letter Hillary will need to have when she announces her pro-TPP platform (in March 2015)" "Please support reinstating Glass Steagal" "Bernie has $35M reasons why Hillary is tied to Wall Street" "Boy, we sure fooled Bernie after he endorsed Her on the Superdelegates!" "I've burned all bridges by keeping Biden out, but happy to be on the HRC team"

Severely? That obviously depends on your outlook. They are more biased than the likes of the BBC, but people in this day and age are free to pick and choose their bite-sized pieces of (self-reinforcing) news information as they see fit, so if they want to be less well informed, then that is their choice.

Well, he did call himself a redneck, so if you were really under the mistaken impression that 'redneck' is the equivalent of 'nigger', it would be sort of like a black person calling another black person 'my nigga'.
Has CNN been dogging Melania yet for threatening (with a lawsuit) Trump's accusers? Maybe they'll go there at some point, but they seem pretty much hands off with Melania. They didn't slam her too hard for potentially coming here illegally, for faking her college degree, for plagiarizing Michelle O's speech, for obviously marrying an old fatty with droopy balls for the money, etc.

All media sources are biased, some more severely, than others. You cannot just wave away sites like AP and RealClearPolitics as unbalanced though. On the whole they do a pretty good job. Anything with a TV voice these days is far more news-u-tainment than news though.

The problem I have is the right doesn't get to hold up Fox and Breitbart as a counter to perceived imbalance. That's not a justification for blatant spin.

Not at all. If Jesse Jackson got up and said "They're niggers. I grew up with niggers. I am a nigger, blah blah blah so vote for one of my kids."

It would be ridiculously newsworthy. "Jesse Jackson called himself and the people he grew up with niggers! Does he have self-respect? Is this okay in a Black leader?"

It's extremely newsworthy for Hillary's top aides to say Catholics (who have always leaned democratic and still do) need a "Catholic Spring" or that "Bill Richardson is a Dick" or "We tricked Sanders with the Delegates, he thought he would get something for his endorsement, hahaha".

The Oligarch (Jeff Bezos, Carlos Slim) owned Media is taking sides, just like the Media takes sides in Brazil and other Banana Republics to make sure "One of theirs" gets in and outsiders stay the hell away from the reigns of power.

What's the evidence that these Trump Accusers have for their years or decades old assertions?

"What is submitted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence." So why isn't the media dismissing these stories? Remember the last few times the media went apeshit over rape allegations: Duke LaCrosse, UVA, Tawana Brawley.

PS I'm glad you guys aren't playing the "Altered" Card. Hillary already admitted the emails were stolen in the debates, and none of her Campaign Bigwigs have said they are fake.

Define mainstream such that it matters over and above the entire constellation of web news. Sooner or later you should admit "mainstream media" is a PC cop out for not wanting to say plainly that other people are full of shit and why. You're not oppressed by MSM any more than I am or anyone your age or anyone with a friggin' smart phone so why should anyone else be? It's as if the all powerful "MSM" forces you to type in every website you ever visit. OMG! Mainstream non-fiction is preventing me from learning history from more than one source. Tap water is "mainstream" water? Who knew! I guess that's why no one is aware of bottled water and even if they were wouldn't be able to understand what it is.

If

the #Douchebag said on tape he enjoyed beating mothers as they nursed their babies and Breitbart didn't mention it what would that say about Bannon's ex-wife? There's no proof she didn't know about it and she's already falsely claimed Bannon beat her. She's never been asked about it so how can she be trusted not to have been involved? You'll never hear this on the biased MSM will you? Why isn't the MSM investigating Bannon's ex? This is what they do, time and time again: blaming the victim without any proof. 1) The #DoucheBag didn't beat those mothers, and 2) he wasn't lying about beating them either. He doesn't lie and he doesn't beat nursing mothers, and there is no proof of either so it can only mean that Bannon's wife is lying.

This is just stupid. There is plenty of tossing around stuff like this in every campaign including trumps. People are constantly throwing things around to get position or make points. Where is the news in people working out campaign positions and campaign spin, even rude ones? Everyone, except you apparently, knows it goes on constantly in every campaign.

It's hardly the same as threatening to assault women or if it proves true actually assaulting them. Bursting into teenagers locker rooms to leer at them is pretty sick for a 60 year old grandfather. The bragging he can get away assaulting women or how he did get away with being a pervert shows he knows it's wrong and doesn't care. OMG it was 10 years ago, when he was 60. So he didn't change for 60 years and now he's a new man? I doubt that. What else does he believe he can get away with even if it's wrong?

Bullshit Bob and you know it. If Trump's Aides had been calling for an "Evangelical Spring" because Evangelicals were too conservative in Emails, the MSM would be waving the email around going "ULULULULULULULULU" like a Palestinian after 9/11

Obviously CNN and the NY Times are extremely biased towards liberal candidates and causes and unfortunately social justice.

However nearly all the talking points in the media come from the right. The reason is simple in that hyperbole and scandal make media money and whenever Fox publishes something outrageous, CNN benefits by covering it even if they are taking the opposing side.

For example Benghazi isn't a real scandal but we're forced to talk about it anyway because the right wont shut up about it. Even 10 independent congressional investigations exonerating Clinton wasn't enough and idiots still think she did something evil.
