11. the issue isn't so much what donnie said, but what headline usa today ran with

when an investigation finally wind down and publishes its conclusion, someone else's bizarre and false characterizations should not be the headline.

include donnie's response in the middle of the article, sure. but the headline?

that's some huge right-wing bias there.

15. no surprise indeed.

the bias of certain outlets has become more and more blatant.

unfortunately, a lot of it spills over in to the rest of the media as well.

26. yep. tv for-profit "news" routinely just quotes online & print

Throw in a few camera shots submitted by local affiliates and youtube videos and 15 minutes of commercials and you've got the evening news.

5. The dichotomy between truth and outright lying could not be clearer.

Your example really shows it, my dear EarlG.

Thank you.

A concert effort by many for years. Some hostile foreign powers. Act of war by Putin.

9. The 2020 election, boiled down: Fact-and-law-based Reality vs. Fascist Alternate Reality.

Republicans are going all-out with old Soviet-style disinformation— lies, deceit, demonizing, more lies, mock outrage.

There are only three kinds of Republicans, both of which undermine truth, the law, and democracy itself. They are:
1) Delusional: the neo-confederate loons who think Trump is a heaven-sent, good Christian man who will fight only for whites;
2) Uninformed: by avoiding mainstream sources like NBC or CNN, and obtaining information *strictly* from Faux, Hannity, Rush and Facebook, the uninformed speak only in the only tongue they know: right-wing talking points.
3) Those who know Trump is unfit, but still stand to benefit financially by supporting a lawless, authoritarian regime.

Spanky'd better be sure to pack his presidential knee-pads and ball-gag for his face-to-ahem-face meeting in Moscow.

16. Coming from the guy who was desperately trying to get a deal

For a tower in Moscow, and while he was running for office. He's nothing but a russian asset for putin, and proves it often, like today meeting in the White House with corrupt russian Labrov, again.

29. Trump thnks

that by calling it an 'attempted overthrow of the government' he will nullify the actual report and make it irrelevant to his base.

In truth, it's an appropriately formed report - I'm guessing, haven't read it - without finding any politically motivated bias, and it's of consequence to only one person, #45, not the whole government.

But heck, even if it was the Deep State subverting Donnie's very existence, I'd be ok with that.

30. By his falsely claiming its illegitimate

Because it doesn't confirm his russian propaganda he has been promoting as true, and undermines his and putins lies for them , this should be no surprise coming from a puppet who putin has so compromised he has no choice. trump wants absolute power, and to be the judge,, the jury, and the executioner , and dictate what's true, and what's false, just like putin has done in russia. If the republicans refuse to remove him from office that's what is coming, and trump using barr will go after all minorities using his laws, his opponents using his laws, and to hurt area's in this country that refuse supporting him. Barr is very complicit enabling him doing this now, and especially if he's reinstalled by putin again, it will become worse than what he's doing to immigrants. Republicans will learn quickly they screwed up if they allow him to remain, and he'll bypass them,, then screw them over also, and that he's done this to others throughout his career. This also means every president has these rights to do as trumps done by seeking out foreign countries to determine our elections, and not us, and obstruct justice freely.
