9. My pet peeve

I am very new to the site and did a search for this topic. I know it is 'off topic' for the current events but to me it is symptomatic of how the the TV media have wimped out in even the appearance of fairness to both sides. I have watched all the MSNBC hosts let Republicans get away with talking about the "Democrat Party" for years now. The only host I ever saw call it out, once, was Lawrence O'Donnell. It was over a year ago and he interrupted a Repub and told him that the proper name was Democratic Party.
I don't know why the token Democrat on these shows do not ever call it out either. And CNN, of course, allows it all the time.

Back to current events. I have been dismayed that CNN and some MSNBC hosts (day/evening) have been saying that Hillary is "still lying" about the emails.
To me, this is all part of the media goal of keeping a fight going where none should exist.
As noted, I am new to this but think that such a large group as this could have some impact on forcing the TV media to at least insure that the correct name of our party is used. And yes, words do matter. We look weak, letting it go by.
