Mika makes me sick.

I tuned into the M$NBC moron-palooza for about 5 minutes and you would think, based on their coverage of the election, that Trump was winning 45 of the 50 states and that Hillary was about to be arrested and charged with high treason...

The way this race is being covered, the media is going to have to answer for why they no longer report but instead desperately try to shape the story. Journalism is dead. Punditry is the currency of the realm.

They have both been all over him all morning, so not sure what you saw. They did cover the polls and they are perplexed at her drop from weeks ago.

3. The "Clinton's enriched themselves on government money" part...

Mika gravely intoning "That's not all right...that is terrible." (paraphrasing)

The tone of the coverage in the 7:30 AM CDT segment was hideous horserace bullshit and a constant 5-7 minutes of Trump praise for being the same buffoon he has been for months. The overall theme is constant: "Trump is x,y,z....he did a,b,c...he is now saying 1,2,3...oh and by the way, here's the latest Clinton "controversy" to be concerned about and to say nothing else about her."

The media is stirring the controversy pot and ignoring EVERYTHING else. They are a collective disgrace, but Mika REALLY bothers me now as being the worst of the worst in a sewer of hacks...

... is news seeing the president can spend his money the way he wants to spend his money from the presidents fund.

It's a straight up rope a dope story, the people who don't like Clinton will see it as negative since there's no moral or legal wrong doing in the story.

Mika also said Trump has nothing, and she and Joe made fun of him, called his campaign schizophrenic between morning and evening everyday, and played the Amnesty Don video.

I'm bothered that they don't have enough positive HRC spin on the show, but trump sucks the air out of the room with his hyperbolic speeches.

funds for their private server.

Clintons used PERSONAL FUNDS.

The reporting on Hillary & anything Clinton is always negative before its ever positive.
Its been so since Hillary announced her candidacy.

And they dare schreech about her lack of Press conferences.

and any other proof. He needs to nail them on their hypocrisy of going after the Foundation, when Citizens United allows foreign gifts to campaigns, and no one is checking to see what other past pres have been doing with their money.

I'm sure the media will find away to turn use this latest revelation about their own money paying for the server against them.

... is what counts in that state cause few indies get the % votes any of these polls show on election day.

They're also overstating the impact of the "email" shit during a turnout election where the base is way more important than non existent crossover votes which Clinton is getting more of right now than tRump.

I only know about it because CNN is on 24/7 at the gym. Fortunately there is no sound.
