...and you just don't like what you don't want to hear from Rachel Maddow.

Good point.

As far as that video, I just can't stomach the three of them.  I have such a dislike of Mrs. Bondi, who is on her third marriage, yet campaigned for the "sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman" I just can't listen to her.

I don't have cable and can't watch things like Hannity and Maddow, but when I did, I chose not to because what I don't like about either of them is the one-sided approach.  Both are going to spin to fit either the pro-Trump or anti-Trump side and not give much presentation of the entire picture.  

I will say that Hannity, while entitled to his opinion, does promote conspiracy theories and falsehoods and really twists and spins too much.   Maddow takes a more pragmatic, researched  approach with her obvious spinning to the left but doesn't get too crazy with it.

I don’t watch them either.  Hannity specifically for the reasons you say.  

You are right, I don’t like Maddow.  However, I don’t feel it’s wrong for her to be giving her opinion.  People can decide for themselves what to do with it.

I found this clip so I could see what Baloney was speaking of.

Those are his opinions.  He’s not reporting news while he does it, as far as I know.  Not any different then Rachel Maddow spouting off as if her opinions are facts.  You just don’t like his.

 

 

 

Media =/= news

Gregg Jarrett is a media professional, a partisan pundit. His misbehavior counts.  Attacking the FBI over partisan loyalties to a corrupt president, on national television, counts.

In light of the days news that the Senate Intel Committee has found no Russian Collusion (along with the previous House findings) I think we now know that the liberal media, along with certain politicians have behaved badly in condemning Trump for the last 2 years, way too many examples to quote but here are a few media article titles, one by the always diligent and upright Washington Post.

 

"If there was collusion with Russia, here’s where it might have occurred"

"Trump’s “No Collusion” Defense Is Falling Apart"

 

I wonder what the media will try to Trump up now!

You should really post a link to the reporting which claims that the Senate Intelligence Committee has concluded that.  The committee has not discussed or reported that as a group. We can see for our selves that members of Trump's campaign staff and family were colluding with Russians during the campaign. How can you not see that Trump's "no collusion" defense is crumbling?

I'm waiting for the Mueller report, Daisy.

And you do realize that no members of the media are part of the Senate, or House, so how was this some plot by the mainstream media against Trump?

Your post doesn't make sense.

What I meant is that the liberal media started condemning Trump, ie actually saying he was guilty of Treason, colluding with the Russians to change election results etc etc, and also certain Politicians,  ie Maxine Waters and others, did the same thing with zero evidence or due process. I never said media were part of the committees, just that both groups were saying the same irresponsible things. Which btw could also hurt political relations with other countries as well as our own.

No major news outlet pronounced Trump guilty, Daisy.

None.

Do you know who has hurt relations with our allies?

Yep. DJT!

He has also disparaged the FBI, CIA and DOJ.

Could you help me understand what the difference is between media and politicians talking about the public evidence that Trump's campaign staff and family colluded with Russians and then lied about it, and trump supporters being led in chants of "lock her up" by politicians, campaign staff, candidates, and media personalities? You seem to think that talking about current events and observable evidence is misbehaving while lying and character assassination are OK. 

Or, maybe you are unaware of the obvious evidence of collusion.

I don't know if Trump is guilty or not.

None of us does, at this point.

But a good critical thinker, has to wonder why he and his minions have changed their stories so many damn times, if there is complete innocence.

Seriously.

So many changes in the story.

So many attacks on Mueller.

Why?

Why the need to plant seeds of doubt in the minds of Americans concerning Mueller, the FBI, CIA, and DOJ?

Again, critical thinking skills are what is needed.

As a native Californian, I'm grateful that Gov. Newsom is scaling way back on the bullet train.  ". . .sharply scaled back plans to build a high-speed train from San Francisco to Los Angeles on Tuesday, saying the program had been botched and cost too much. . .".

Personally, I voted against this and wish it had never passed.  But I'll take what I can get.  

I think what has suprised me is the Gov admitted there were problems.  

Investors Business Daily did an article about this when good old Jerry was still in office.  Pointing out . . . lies.

Quote

When you lie about money in the private sector, it's called fraud; when you lie about money in the public sector, it's called politics or "public policy." California's bullet train is a perfect example of this.

Early on, planners warned that the cost would be more than $100 billion. But Jerry Brown, California's governor, didn't like that estimate. So, like Canute commanding the tide to recede, he sought new estimates. He sold those lower estimates to a gullible, and frankly foolish, public.

The original promise, made in a proposition voted on in 2008, called for the entire "high-speed" rail system to be built at a cost of just $37 billion and to be finished by 2020.  It would carry 120,000 riders a day at a cost of $55 a ticket — far less than it costs on average to fly. And it would zip riders to their destinations in just a few hours. Nice. 

But none of those things are even remotely true. . .

You will notice that I didn't say Trump, individual 1, was guilty of any crime.  His campaign staff and family members did collude with Russians and then lied about their interactions. Talking about Trump's calling upon Russia to get involved in the election and then  talking about his obvious pandering and deferring to Putin after the election isn't misbehaving...It's patriotic.

Other than referencing an obviously right slanted website what does this have to do with media behaving badly?
