The corporate media trusts cheato more now than in 2017 [View all]

After Charlottesville, the majority of the nonright media knew exactly what the freak meant when he said there are good people on both sides. They called him out on it immediately. There was not an effort to "look at the context".

They could have done that. They could have said there were some good people there, and technically there probably were some nonviolent people who got caught up in march they didn't bargain for. But no one said that. It was understood what he meant.

Flash forward six years. The corporate media's ability to do that is gone. After all we have witnessed from this freak, including Jan. 6, they now want to parse his words and give him the benefit of the doubt.

And so do some on this site.
