So what is the best source for news, in your opinion?
(I've asked twice already and no replies)
For fast breaking news: Twitter
Watching news on TV: Fox is the most balanced during the day. At night it tends to shift to the right.
Reading news stories, inside looks: ZeroHedge
Why do you guys always leave out FACTS
1. Biden was nothing but a candidate at the time.
2. If you read the "twitter files" it says that Twitter couldn't prove any of it, therefore they left them out.
But the right, now wants to make the claim that a story was stopped because of some liberal conspiracy by some "left wing bias". This is 100% supported by what Tiabbi says in his story in "Files 1":
and then he makes the statement:
And does so with literally no proof or even trying to qualify the statement with any evidence
However then he tries to support of the claim of bias by how much money Twitter donated to party candidates, NOT how many or how often tweets were "changed" that benefited one party or the other.
Then their is a simple FACT that Tiabbi also leaves out: At the time, this was going to directly effect a presidential election, and all of it was with no proof that any of it was real or true. And ironically that truth still exists today, Which is not about the laptops existence, but about the chain of custody of that laptop and the validity of what was on/in it.
Until you can explain how Trumps FBI had the laptop in Dec 2019, and how they did nothing with it, (because there was noting on it, and they knew the chain of custody of the data was beyond questionable) and there was no issue with it until 3 weeks before the election, smells to high heaven. If you were alive then, you would know that the Trump campaign was saying "we need to know whats on it", yet they had the laptop for over 12 months at that time !!!! Now here we are almost 2 years later and everyone is still questioning "whats on it" ?
Everything in rightwinglandia is the "smoking gun".
The "twitter files" are an even bigger nothing ! But the base will eat it up and cry foul and "VICTIMMMMMMMMMM" at every turn on every page
This post is is a good example of why, as a poster, you're such a bore. It's really impossible to have discussions with you because you won't really respond to direct questions made about comments that you actually make. But you will filibuster endless about other issues. Although I've been able to have discussions with many other posters about topics, even ones that we disagree on, that's never been the case with you. You're really a time suck.
That's a loaded question, because we each have a subjective opinion on that; you might as well ask, what's the best Bourbon. I access multiple sources of news, which I think is the recommendable way, to not be taken in by one particular spin. For different stories, there are different sources I will use, to check info from other sources. For international news, for instance, to avoid being misled by a strictly "American" spin, I will check the story on Al Jazeera.
Trump never established control over the Executive Branch, his failure to do so was his undoing and is why I do not support him for another term.
No I didn't.
Now Trump had no control of his executive branch ?
Laughably pathetic reply.
My own comments, needed no clarification. But you tried to put words in my mouth. It was because I have come to know how obsessively niggling you can be, about inaccuracies of wording, that I purposely avoided, in a case in which the facts are still murky, trying to put too much into just my own words. I did, however, answer your vaguely-worded (ironically) questions, as best as possible. And I made an observation, about the way this was being rolled out, to which you completely avoided giving any response.
Since it was you who was initiating this conversation with me, and you think I am such a bore; I guess you only need someone smart enough to explain this to you:
STOP TALKING TO ME!
Another great example of media and even Democrats telling outright blatant lies about Hunter's laptop being "Russian disinformation".
I'm glad you and I agree bruh.
~ I always thought it to be Scotland Yard ...
J. Edgar Hoover never really had a stellar reputation .
Speaking purely personally I have never been on Twitter because I see it as reductive and reflects the mentality and concentration span and memory of gold fishes.
It is a private business supposedly there to enrich somebody.
There is little wrong with writing a letter, putting it in an envelope, and taking it to the post box. It could be argued that the effort involved in writing a letter might lead to better communication of meaning.
It’s been proven beyond question our govts corrupt collusion to change the outcome of elections by suppression of stories that harmed Dems, and promotion of unverified stories that harmed Reps. While I don’t expect anything to come of it, this is just further proving that distrust of our govt, and any institution they touch in anyway is the only rational perspective to have.
It has not been proved beyond question.
Trump lost because he is a sex pest who boasted about grabbing women by their genitalia.
Incorrect, it has been proven beyond question. And if that were true he would have lost in 2016
So prove Fox News doesn't invite opposing views on their shows?
Didn’t Clinton (a woman no less) get more actual votes than Trump in 2016, but the weird election system in the United States of America made Trump President?
I think people then woke up to the fact that a person who boasted about being a sex pest had been elected, and that made them sick to the stomach and tried harder for it not to happen again.
Who wants to be led by Donald Trump who boasts about grabbing the womenfolk by their genitalia?
Trump said women who are groupies will let rich famous men grab them by their vaginas. If you're going to tell a story then tell the truth.
America's Founding Fathers chose the Electoral College over the Popular vote because they saw the Popular vote as mob rule. The majority voters will outnumber minority voters taking away their voice. I hope you don't think you are smarter than the Founding Fathers?
Every left leaning person on this forum thinks they're smarter than the founders.
The truth is in the actual recording of Trump speaking.
Don’t try to turn it on the subject of Trumps boast.
In the recording Trump does not use the words ‘groupies’ or ‘vaginas’.
Were the founding fathers all white men many of whom kept slaves?
Doesn’t take much to be smarter than them.
Proven beyond question.
looks like republicans jumped the gun on this one
