When the media can cancel the president of the United States, they're biased, and they have too much power.

But the bias of the press goes back much further than Trump.  It's been on that trajectory for decades, just getting worse and worse as time goes on.

Fox is the only mass media outlet that has allowed some dissenting views.   Most of the corporate media is in lockstep.   They don't even need reporters anymore.  They simply copy and paste from their favourite Twitter feed or directly from an inaccurate report in the NYT or the WaPo.

There is so much bias in your comment that I doubt you would trust anything other than Fox News, regardless of the report.

I've told you before:  I don't trust any corporate media, and that includes Fox.  Fox still has a couple of people standing who present a different point of view, but in general they're no different from the rest.

To me it's shocking the way people have let themselves be swayed by people who have such powerful vested interests, interests that are completely incompatible with those of ordinary working citizens.

Your first step is to turn off your TV.  Never, ever watch it.  Stay away for ten or twenty years.  You might begin to think for yourself.

He's undoubtedly a good liberal.  Doesn't matter.  He said something that the mob didn't like.

Christopher Rufo has been doing a whole series of articles about the indoctrination now being taught in thousands of schools across America:



At least one comment echoes what I have stated on this forum before.  'Liberals' and progressives have failed.  Their nearly 60 year old Great Society programs have been trillions of dollars (reparations without using the word) that have produced no results.  Poverty and illiteracy rates are if anything worse than ever.  

Now they are resorting to actually teaching kids to hate white people.

The media is complicit.  They also promote starkly racist education.

In reply toRe: msg 91

About a year ago when it became obvious how widespread this cancer had become, Trump issued an executive order in effect outlawing this form of education.

One of Joe Biden's very first acts as president was to reinstate the teaching and promotion of 'critical race theory' and attendant doctrines. 

The guy is literally Hitler.

You think students should NOT learn about communism and the dangers of radical beliefs leading to violence?

Critical race theory is not teaching history.  It's teaching an ideology of hate.
