not doing a follow up on the Schiff memo last year that was rushed out to try and discredit the nunes one.

seems the Adam Schiff if we are to believe the sworn testimony of Bruce Ohr got most of the "facts" wrong.

the FBI/DOJ did know that the dossier was funded by the democrats
Steele was anti-Trump
the FBI received the dossier before they launched operation cross-fire hurricane and not months later after they started applying for FISA's as Schiff wrongly said.

not a surprise that Schiff once to keep the distractions going by saying over the weekend he wants to fully investigate the allegations in the "non-shell" Buzzfeed story from last week.

if you follow the whole Trump/Russia thing you can see that FUSION GPS where paying journalists to report some of the unverified "Steele dossier" in the lead up to the election,YES its wrong to just label the media the enemy of the people but maybe its a wake up call to those who have just cozied up to the power makers rather than as they are doing now holding them to account.
The press liked Obama?? The right wing media & media outside the main urban Democratic heartlands were rabid against him.

The media pick a side and report accordingly. In a democratic state that is the accepted norm. Its no longer the case in the US (and parts of the UK media under Murdoch and previously Dacre) as left and centrist views are decried as Fake News at every turn.

The Trump administration displays all the hallmarks of a totalitarian regime. The chief of the SA in Germany was quoted -“The people want wholesome dread. They want to fear something. They want someone to frighten them and make them shudderingly submissive.” That is what is happening in large swathes of Trumps America and replicated in states across the globe

outside of FOX news and the odd website Obama got an easy ride from the media,the same media who now just slaughter Trump daily.the Buzzfeed story from last Thursday shows how desperate some parts of the media are to "get Trump" and it doesn't matter how thing the sourcing is they just run with it and hope.

cant remember the last time that part of the media mistakenly reported a pro-Trump type story.must just be a coincidence.

beyond comical.



Obama wasnt perfect but you cant compare him to Trump.


Trump is a walking garbage fire, he does something stupid/awful every 2 minutes. you have to try and get him, he literally serves up bad stories to them.



its that classic thing because Fox News just make up rubbish about the otherside you think other news stations would do the same. you see it online a lot where people dont think others can hold good opinions because they are so toxic.



Fox is a literal propaganda machine for Trump, they even get on stage at his rallies.



the problem is for Trump is that the facts and reality is against him, so just reporting the news counts as being against him.


heres an easy on for you is Trump a liar?


simple question.

Fair play, that Buzzfeed story is looking a little, erm, shaky.

It does rather distract from the main point though, that Donald Trump is not fit to be POTUS and I think to try to defend him is just daft. The Washington Post has him down for 15 untruths a day for 2018! Are you really going to try to suggest that is all just "Fake News"?

https://www.politifact.com/personali...yruling/false/

He's a buffoon. Worse, he's mendacious, both hot and pig headed, narrow minded and xenophobic. Just one of those 'qualities' should disbar him from holding high office, goodness he shouldn't really even be in charge of a Pee Wee football team and, shaky news story or not, that Mueller probe is going to keep on probing.

yeah the Washington post have been pretty fair to Trump(haha) and the media do seem to like to play the fact checking point on POTUS since the dems where not really a proper opposition during his 1st 2 years.

also looking forward to Mueller's report as he lays out the direct Trump/Putin links that the media promised us existed over the last 24 months......

should we just trust the media who just seem to keep making slight mistakes,the Covington kids story that the media pushed on the back of an edited video over the weekend just because the kids was wearing a MAGA hat and it helped push the anti-Trump agenda but just like Buzzfeed nonshell looks a whole lot different 24 hours later when more raw footage is available but of course by then the lib media have wrecked these kids lives.

see hammering home another point i made above because Fox News is BS mountain and actual propaganda machine, fellas like you then think the reverse is possible.



was the story overblown, a tad sure but thats just the general state of affairs, however the blow back and swallowing of the narrative that came back was just as silly.

media wrecked these kids lives lol, if they want to wear an item that marks them out as a racist idiot, whose fault is that?
