“Tapper described that portion of the press conference: “Now, elsewhere in those remarks, Trump did condemn neo-Nazis and white supremacists. So he’s not saying that the neo-Nazis and white supremacists are very fine people.”

The only thing shameful, is the continued efforts by Trump and Friends to deny the reality many of us remember all to clearly.

But it is a tactic often employed by Trump and Friends.

It appeals to only those already indoctrinated.

The rest of us, while appalled, just kind of yawn.

The tactic also seems to collide with those of Republican strategists, who tend to take the long view, when discussing issues with long term effects on the party.

Read an article today in the WaPo, in which one such strategist, admitted the vile statements made by Trump: "Weren't his finest hour."

Only rabid Trumpsters, such as Kellyanne Conway defend such outrageous garbage.

But she is paid for act the fool.

I just caught up on the past 3 pages; y'all's focus has since changed , but I'm still boggled by the White Supremacists (on page 56, in a post from herring) who believe that the white race will be obliterated (my paraphrase) by a 'rising tide of color' ...  "controlled and manipulated by Jews".  Imagine that! 🤯 My mind is blown!  People of color are going to be 'manipulated' into increasing their 'tide' ...  by Jews ... HOW? 

Very weird bunch, those W-S's. Are they aware that Alien Beings have permeated their brains while they slept? And those ET's, at this very moment are, yes, controlling and, could it be...? Yes!  manipulating their plaque-filled brains....

Whaddya gonna do?!?!

I thought it was interesting that Trump mentioned that one group even had a permit to be there. Of course that group was the white supremacists, as you point out. Trump is a piece of work. 

Counter protesters also had permits. The President lied when he said they did not. (I'm not sure how close the counter demonstration was to the horrid nazi display.

Donald Trump wrong that Charlottesville counter-protesters didn't have a permit:  https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2017/aug/17/donald-trump/donald-trump-wrong-charlottesville-counter-protest/

Anybody here surprised that Trump got his facts wrong?

Raise your hand, if you are surprised.

It is hard to tell though, if he didn't just deliberately lie.

He lies so often, and his followers don't care.

So long as DJT tells them the lies they want to hear, they are good.

Very sad.

“MSNBC "Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough tried to pin the recent tragic attack on the synagogue in California on President Donald Trump on Monday by comparing the president to ISIS and al-Qaeda.”

You realize that's a talk show right?  It comes with the territory.  Obama was accused on Fox and Friends of working with terrorists.  Yawn

Great discussion about bias in the media.

https://video.foxnews.com/v/6038711418001/#sp=show-clips

  The writer seems to have done some good research but then he presents it to fit right into the conservative narrative that media is bad, and it's other media and not Fox News since Fox News, one of the largest new organizations in the country doesn't consider themselves "mainstream media", and his defense of Trump's use of the "fake news" narrative lost me.

Exactly what I expected from a Fox News clip.  At least I wasn't disappointed.

I did enjoy the historical perspectives of this piece although I am skeptical of his accuracy. 

But the press is driven by free enterprise is this country. If you don't sell add space, then the market place with determine your fate. So the media/press reports on what sells. 

I also take exception to his premise that only liberal former administration officials end up in the media. Every week I see Chris Christie bloviating on a Sunday new show. Perhaps if Trump didn't attack his former employees, more of them would be willing to go on the media in support of his administration. And isn't his daughter in law on some news program?
