How much has the Moron's free publicity from CNN and MSNBC screwed up

the Dems chances of winning now? It is 2016 all over again. Thanks for nothing CNN and MSNBC! You did it AGAIN! All for ratings and $$$$$. If this keeps up we don't have a chance in Hell of winning the midterms. Do you think Fux Ruse/T*RUMP TV would have shown Obama for over an hour at a Dem campaign rally?!?

I am calling them and complain a lot!!!!!
CNN (404)827-1500
MSNBC (212) 664-6605
Rachel's ext. (46250)

1. What's there to complain about?

That they did it "[a]ll for ratings and $$$$$"? That's, uh, what they're in business to do. Why don't people here understand this basic truth?

Might as well complain about KFC selling you a bucket of chicken. It amounts to the same thing.

6. complain about unfairness

They claim to be news organizations. They are megaphones, instead. It would not surprise me to learn that their coverage is dictated from the top, rather than by ratings.

2. Costing the Dems tons.

Someone did a back of the envelope math thing in 2016 to the tune of a Billion and a half.

7. not back of the envelope

There were actual measurements. For example:

(handy bar chart there)

9. As I expected.

Missed it by 300 million. And it appears to be happening as we speak. Media investment in Trump is paying major dividends via Ad Revenue and Eye Balls as well as Click Bait.

Today's Media coverage is a great example of promoting the Trump reelection agenda as well as doing a softball reporting job of this Guy's crimes.

3. Since the knuckleheads aren't watching MSNBC or CNN

why show more than a few clips of the Dear Leader? Because like most viewers I invoked my NETFLIX option while the "ranter" ranted.

5. Watching MTP I see huge advances in AI and robotics.

They have Steven Mnuchin's eye blinking almost normal.

10. My televisions haven't stopped on any 'news' channel or show since Nov. 7, 2016. If nobody

watches their crap, they don't get big ad dollars nor ratings. Thank goodness for ID and movies.
