Really?
Pretty much. Texas is the land of Faux News, which fabricates stories daily. Most other networks stick closer to things that actually happened, but either won't report it or selectively edit the facts to support their agenda. Reporters don't investigate any more, they meet with news generators who hand them a fact sheet that makes it easy to fabricate a story. The Hidden Persuaders long ago figured out that it's cheaper to manipulate public opinion than it is to buy politicians, and an election won't shift public policy when they control the press. You think what Rupert Murdoch tells you to think.

Lol the way they want to?

Since 85% self-identify as Dems, I think they're reporting exactly the way they want to, and it has nothing to do with "corporate" boogeymen.

Investigative journalism is dead on this country thanks to the left and their endless pursuit of political correctness--none of which perturbs the left-and-politically-correct media one whit.

Almost 28 million people live in Texas. That is a larger population than all but about 6 European COUNTRIES.

Remember the massacre at a McDonalds in San Ysidro, California back in 1984? Twenty one people were killed...

Well, they tore down the McDonalds after the killings. And what did they build on that site?

Yep... a post office.

I believe that Fox News is actually headquartered in NYC.

It looks like it is over.

Sniper Kills Suspect in Police HQ Attack in Dallas

(Newser) – The chaos in Dallas is over after the city's police headquarters was attacked by a gunman with bombs. A police sniper has indeed killed the suspect inside his van, reports AP. It took a while to confirm because police were cautious about approaching the vehicle. It also appears that he acted alone, contrary to earlier police reports that up to four people were involved. Police Chief David Brown said the man identified himself as James Boulware and blamed police for "accusing him of being a terrorist" and causing him to lose custody of his son. He allegedly opened fire on police headquarters with automatic weapons about 12:30am and left two explosive devices near the building.

Sounds more like Washington your describing. But they make promises many fools actually believe. Do nothing and we will make you middle class they have sold for ages to poor voters. When government is more and more dependent on fewer and fewer providing their funding.
