Anybody else feel like the media is giving too much oxygen to this dumpster fire?

I know Pussy-Grabber is in the White House and won't concede. But is this REALLY any different from ANYTHING else he's been up to for the past 5 years? Lies upon lies upon lies. I'm not sure what the remedy might be, as it IS news, but perhaps a bit less breathless reporting on what he might or might not do? Who gives a fat fuck if he doesn't concede and tries to stay? He'll get his fat ass dragged out. I am weary of the endless outrage. It is fucking time to laugh at his fat ass along with the clowns who are enabling him.

I've watched four channels since I got home from work, and it is giving me a big, fucking headache. He has steered the news the way he wants, and I feel like he's doing it again.

Yes, Giuliani is a drunk fool. But let's not give him the respect of airing his slack, stupid face all over the media. I seriously loathe these fucking idiots more than I can even say, and I am sick to death of seeing them and hearing them.

4. Yes, report it, but it is not something they haven't been doing endlessly.

I want to hear from the Biden team, I want them to make it about what WE are going to do.

6. The media will always give too much oxygen to Trump.

They are like the rubber necks at a car crash. They want to look away, but can't help themselves.

Like someone else said if this was Democrats doing it

Thousands or hundreds of thousands of right wingers surrounding the White House with pitchforks and rifles

This is the biggest news in 100 years

10. It is incredibly frightening

As I just posted elsewhere, DT is a terrorist. He has incited violence on numerous occasions, but what he is doing now is setting the stage for domestic terrorist attacks against the legitimate Biden administration and other officials the crazy's see being key in the "conspiracy" to steal the election from Trump.

With every action, he adds fuel to the fire. When their options truly run out after Jan 6 (counting of electors in Congress) it will erupt. It is only the potential that he can pull off his coup that is keeping his "people" in check.

With something like 80% of Republicans buying the "Biden stole it" insanity, you know there are at least a few among that number motivated and capable of pulling off a seriously devastating attack of some kind.

I think I fear for SOS's and other election officials most of all. They don't have the kind of protection given the President Elect and his team.

8. Don't underestimate Trump and his cult,

All I'm saying is what was said in Bush v Gore,

"Bush v Gore said a state legislature may if it so chooses select the electors itself and it retains authority to take back the power to appoint electors even if it formally let the popular vote make the decision."

I'm still drinking till it's over.

That seems rather extreme.

9. The same way people gawk at a train wreck...

The media is providing the window to the tRumpwreck and I'm sure getting ratings out of it.

It's possible that Donny will have the highest ratings of any loser in history!

12. I'd like to see them give attention to the foreign influences

behind this attempted coup. I'd like them to call out Republican's for being part of a craven cult. I want them to pay proper attention to the dangers Trump poses to Democracy.

18. If there were something new, and if they were actually doing an investigation

rather than endless reels of lying republicans, I woudl get it.

And I remember Watergate clearly. I'm not sure if you do. At the time, there were approximately three television channels and not endless, 24/7 coverage.

16. Wonder what he'd do if they only reported on the incoming Biden team.

Probably throw a fit.

Id love them to stop covering Giuliyahoo and the rest of the clowns.

19. "Sharing air" with those who never tune out? Helps to remember

that almost no one listens to cable political programming, more than one or two programs at most. Cable is feeding those few choosing to wallow in the post-election talk.

Right now it's Giuliani's bags of garbage into the fire. Every program. Of course.

Too much? Strictly a matter for individual tastes to decide.

20. No-- they haven't given enough oxygen

what Trump is doing is anti-democratic and borders on sedition. It should be reported as such. He has gone way beyond Nixon.

22. Thanks - this Clown Coup needs to be slapped down ad nauseum

They are screaming what Obama called "bald assertions": conspiracies without substance, evidence or even plausibility, and they're using every megaphone they own. They own a lot and they're in thick bubbles that resist facts.

Propaganda works. This is one Gish Gallop that the MSM cannot afford to ignore.
