    Re: Do you trust the media?

    Just furthering the point of media/ news not being true reporters of news (unless it fits the current leftist/ democrat narrative).
    If you're going to call yourself a "News Source", then you should be required to report on ALL news good or bad. This "selective reporting" and the bold-faced Lies have been going on for too long.
    I remember a time when I was younger where news sources reported ALL the goings-ons. They reported Lefty and Righty news in the same segments. They reported Republican and democrat news in the same segments. They reported things that didn't align with "their views" and also reported on things that fell within their view in the same segments.
    It's all become One-sided as the article below explains. Why do they have to hide information like this from viewers?? Why can't they just report on what is happening, instead of trying to spin things into something they're not or staying silent on something that might favor, in this instance, conservatives?
    Most news sources should have that title stripped, because all they offer at this point is a bunch of Opinions, rarely any solid, truthful news.

    The article below is just one Small example of how Tainted the "news" has become.

    Networks Covered Liberal SCOTUS Wins, Ignored GOP Wins | The Daily Wire

    A new study found that the big networks – ABC, CBS, and NBC – spent nearly 25 minutes covering Supreme Court decisions that were considered wins for liberals and absolutely no time covering the decisions that were considered wins for conservatives. In the past two weeks, the Supreme Court issued six major rulings, three of which were considered positive for conservatives and three that were considered positive for liberals.

    Re. USA.
    Your poor country is f@#$ed.... USA People need to wake on mass an start working toward a common unified goal.
    Your country's people fall fowl with the "Law-Of-Confusion" and ideology brain tennis, as your congitive awarness is flogged from one side of your brains moral belief system to the other. Your being mentally tormented and deliberately confused on a massive scale by media and other social circles.

    Focus on one universal scale goal to make a better place for all the worlds people not just your deluded service-to-self arrogant USA ego's.

    If people are not part of the healthy solution , then they can only be part of the dirty problem.

    Your country has nuclear and far worse scalar weapons, so your country's political elections are part of the entire worlds problems.

    Human kind is on the precipice of enslavement, cease attacking one another and start working together on worldy solutions for f#$% sake...

    USA Today Dragged For Fact-Check Comparing Trump Campaign Eagle To Nazi Imagery

    USA Today caught loads of flak on Twitter after rendering “True” a fact-check on whether or not a Trump campaign T-shirt design featuring an eagle is similar to Nazi imagery. After several Twitter accounts pointed out what they felt were similarities between the “America First Tee” and the Nazi eagle, USA Today published the fact-check on Saturday.

    After acknowledging that the eagle is “widely used in American political imagery,” the outlet described Nazi Germany’s use of the “Imperial Eagle” for its own symbol.
    “The T-shirt for sale on the Trump campaign’s website is called the ‘America First Tee,'” USA Today wrote. “The design includes a left-facing eagle, holding a round emblem with the U.S. flag inside and ‘Trump 2020’ in a banner underneath. Forward also reported the eagle was a stock image, based on sleuthing from Twitter. The stock art linked in the Forward article has since been removed.”
    USA Today then described “key differences” in the design: “In Trump’s, the eagle holds the American flag up near its chest; the Nazi symbol holds the swastika lower. Trump’s design also features ‘Trump 2020’ below it. The American eagle is also a bald eagle, whereas the Nazi eagle is depicted as an all-black bird.”
    Nevertheless, the comparison still earned a “True” rating:
    The claims that a Trump campaign T-shirt has come under criticism for using a symbol similar to a Nazi eagle is TRUE, based on our research. But it is worth noting that the eagle is a common symbol in American politics, and is included in the presidential seal of the U.S., as well as many federal departments.


    so are these four female dimwits NAZI's?

    AOC blames economy for NYC crime wave — not NYPD cuts

    AOC blames economy for NYC crime wave — not NYPD cuts

    US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday bizarrely claimed that hungry New Yorkers stealing bread were behind an “uptick in crime” in the city — despite the fact that overall crime is down, while shootings and murders have soared.
    “Do we think this has to do with the fact that there’s record unemployment in the United States right now? The fact that people are at a level of economic desperation that we have not seen since the great recession?” she said in a Thursday town hall, a clip of which was shared by The Hill on Twitter Sunday.
    “Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren’t paying their rent and are scared to pay their rent. And so they go out and they need to feed their child and they don’t have money. So, you maybe have to — they’re put in a position where they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry that night.”
    The divisive rep shot down claims that a reduced NYPD budget has led to more chaos, arguing that Gotham was slipping before the department’s budget was cut July 1.

    “Keep in mind that this uptick in crime that’s happening right now is with a $6 billion New York City Police Department budget. We have shoved more and more and more money into the NYPD. It has not prevented this uptick in crime,” she said in a Thursday town hall, a clip of which was shared by The Hill on Twitter Sunday.
    While shootings and murders have skyrocketed this year, overall crime has been trending down. There have been a little over 1,300 fewer major crimes reported this year, for a 3-percent reduction over 2019, according to NYPD data.
    Ocasio-Cortez also slammed the NYPD for blaming bail reform for a rise in city shootings, as she appeared to cite an exclusive Post report debunking the bogus claim.
    Despite 528 shootings through June 30, up 46 percent from last year, only one person released under the new law were charged in a shooting.

    SO SHE IS BLAMING THE UPTICK IN CRIME ON "PEOPLE STEALING FOOD TO FEED THEIR KIDS? How stupid can SHE be ? She was even seen protesting with the criminals.... and she didn't notice the crimes being committed ? Is she that stupid or just BLIND?

    Controversial opinion writer Bari Weiss resigns from The New York Times, blasting paper for 'illiberal environment' - CNN

    Bari Weiss Resigns From The New York Times: 'Standing Up For Principle Puts A Target On Your Back'

    CNN, MSNBC avoid on-air coverage of Bari Weiss''' dramatic exit from The New York Times | Fox News

    In her resignation letter, Weiss noted that her own “forays into Wrongthink” have made her the subject of “constant bullying by colleagues” who disagree with her views.
    Weiss also mentions dealing with discrimination, harassment, anti-Semitism, and being called a Nazi and a racist at the Times. “Showing up for work as a centrist at an American newspaper should not require bravery,” she says.


    Need more people like her to point out the wrongdoing and hypocrisy of these "News Sources".

    WaPo's Chief 'Fact Checker' Calls Barr a Liar for Telling the Truth About Black Murder Rate

    Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee weren’t the only ones left looking like mental Chihuahuas by Attorney General William Barr’s tour de force appearance on Tuesday.
    Their allies in the mainstream media were yapping, too.
    And as a Twitter post published by Washington Post chief “fact checker” Glenn Kessler showed, the ankle-biting was just as bad in the cyber world as it was in the auditorium of the Capitol Visitors Center where Barr testified.

    In the post, Kessler tried to smear Barr as a liar for citing an entirely truthful statistic regarding the homicide rate among black Americans — a statistic that shows the foundational statement of the so-called Black Lives Matter movement is a lie itself.
    As National Review’s peerless Andrew McCarthy noted Tuesday, Barr’s written statement to the committee included a telling fact about how the relentless leftist war on law enforcement is actually making life more dangerous for African-Americans:

    “The leading cause of death for young black males is homicide. Every year approximately 7,500 black Americans are victims of homicide, and the vast majority of them — around 90 percent — are killed by other blacks, mainly by gunfire. Each of those lives matter.”
    It’s a statement that reflects a grim reality, and in a responsible world, sane adults might take notice.

    But in a world where Trump Derangement Syndrome holds dangerous sway among liberal lawmakers and media members alike, it’s a truth that runs counter to the liberal narrative — and so it must be a lie.
    In response to Barr’s statement Kessler dredged up a Washington Post “Fact Checker” column from 2014, when former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said much the same thing during the controversy over the shooting death of Michael Brown, the black resident of Ferguson, Missouri, who died after allegedly assaulting a police officer.

    “In 2014, this statement earned Two Pinocchios,” Kessler wrote. “Virtually same percentage of whites kill whites — important missing context.”
    Kessler was referring to a 2014 “Fact Checker” piece by Post reporter Michelle Ye Hee Lee and his “Fact Checker” column’s rating system, which ranks the truthfulness of a statement a scale of one to four “Pinocchios.” Four is the worst, but two “Pinocchios” represents a lie of omission.

    “A politician can create a false, misleading impression by playing with words and using legalistic language that means little to ordinary people,” the ratings system explains.
    Accusing a man of creating “a false, misleading impression by playing with words” is a long way of calling that man a liar.

    But the accusation isn’t remotely relevant to the statement Barr made (which may be why Kessler was forced to fall back on a six-year-old “Fact Checker” column to do it). Barr’s point was the true source of danger to black people in the United States when it comes to homicide — and it’s not police officers. Whether that’s equally true of whites is not only not “important,” it has literally no bearing on the case at all.
    Mockery aside, this is serious business — more serious than any of the liberal Lilliputians on the Judiciary Committee treated it, dedicated as they are to smearing President Donald Trump and his administration.
    What Barr was talking about, what any American of goodwill should be concerned with, is the carnage ripping that rips through the black community on a regular basis that has nothing to do with bogus “systemic racism” in the United States.

    But that didn’t fit the mindset of the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee, led by the Trump-hating Rep. Jerrold Nadler. It doesn’t fit the political agenda of the Black Lives Matter movement, which has taken over the easily swayed hearts and minds of American liberals.
    The “fact checkers” in the mainstream media, obsequiously aligned with the Democratic Party, might have no interest in exposing the truth behind Black Lives Matter — its “trained Marxist” founders, its terrorist-tied funders.
    But millions of Americans are learning.
    And Barr’s appearance was an excellent step in the right direction.
