Sunday mainstream political talk shows are pathetic today.

They normalize tRump and play his propaganda clips/ campaign rhetoric over and over like it's pResidential.

I'm so exhausted by the Hypocrisy.

1. Let it go

It has always been thus.

You canít make the media good. No one can.

2. Let's Face It - He Was Right When Not To Long Ago He Said....

that the media wants him in office. The MSM seems to be taking the steam out of this Big Blue Wave. One day they jumped all over him because of his supposed meltdown interview on Fox. The next day they were touting that he met his goal and intentionally dropped the words that he had an attorney/client relationship with Cohen and that was clever on his part.

His repeated lying that goes unchallenged seems to be taking hold and taking root with the uneducated voters out there and I'm really worried that the Repugs will hold their power in Nov as they continue to circle the wagons around him and his lies.

If the Dems don't mount a historic GOTV campaign soon and create a historic turnout against the Repugs in Nov - they will squander a golden opportunity and this country will continue to go downhill.

Even world leaders like Macron & Merkel - instead of standing up to this bully - they play his game and think they have to complement him in order to deal with him. The bully always wins in that situation.

Avananti seems to be the only one that knows how to deal with the likes of a bully like Trump. He seems to know how to put Trump on the defensive.

What kind of dirt will they dig up or lie about on Avanati to silence him? You can almost feel it coming.

5. The most offense point is....

Media choosing to sell out when they could actually preform journalism....It's just a " factory production line" verses intelligent reporting.... It's just a dam good paying job. ...

4. Um I keep hearing over and over again how all this IS NOT NORMAL. So I'm not sure

 

what you are watching that is trying to make this "normal".

I think it's unrealistic to expect the media to not play clips etc....or cover it. He is the fake prezident and he must be covered. And good thing too since he has incriminated himself to the media and the American public over and over again.

6. It is not unrealistic to think they could actually be journalist...

Corporate media is now just entertainment....We need to evolve out of the corporate control...We had a taste there in 2001 with internet blogging etc...now that was " bought up" too.

7. You seem to be forgetting

this is a democracy in name only. The country is run by rich old white guys that have corporations and links and go golfing and own teevee stations and pay for laws to be made screwing the poor and underprivileged.

They realize they can play us against each other and win no matter what happens to us. They get us to buy their shit, build their stadiums and whatever else they need.

I hate to say it, but "We been screwed".

10. I know the feeling

thinking that everyone sees the problem and if we all band together we can make it to the good side. Sadly, the PTBs decide to use Diebold and Sequoia voting machines at that point and not let us know how we voted and we crash.

I hang on too. It has to change someday. Don't give up

Peace.
