No doubt, 3 hours of listening to a persons one-sided opinion about current events. It's a way to reaffirm one's political and ideological bias in the world. If a person was truly honest and had courage, they would listen to opinion from all sides. But those traits are sorely lacking these days.

The list did not help Mr. Nixon, in the end. However, being one of those people that believes in making various lists (groceries, chores, enemies), I did admire this trait in Mr. Nixon.
Nixon constantly complained against his press coverage and accused others of being enemies who had it in for him.

Also remember his supporters claiming that others were lying about Nixon.

Turned out they were wrong.

- ISIS almost wiped out
- lowest unemployment in 44 years
- Trump bump market skyrocket jump
- Illegal immigration down 70%

The last one -- yes -- we don't need a freak'n wall.

There is absolutely positively no way economic expansion of any significance can happen in 8 months. It is taking Volvo 3 years to build a plant that will add 3,000 jobs. (plant construction started in 2015 - probably planned in 2014). The expansion in employment is a DIRECT impact of steady economic growth from the last 7 years. I don't know if there was any Obama policy that is responsible for that growth -- but I know for sure there is no economic policy that has impacted the job market significantly from the Trump administration.

Wages haven't grown.

And if we are having significant growth without tax cuts -- why the tax cuts. Our deficit is not dropping and won't until revenjues increase and programs are cut.

What goes around comes around. Conservatives get excoriated by liberal media and Liberals get lacerated by conservative media.

I wish it were different, but it's perceived as a weakness, nowadays, to forgive or ask for forgiveness; to apologize or to accept the apology of another.

Dignity and grace are not 21st century virtues.

LOL. The media spins everything Trump says or does in a negative way, they could just easily spin it positively or neutrally but they are so biased, than they take the treasonous route.

Me and most of the people I know look at the mainstream media as a pack of liars and deceivers, nothing else...they add zero value to society and actually are a net negative value....we would be much better off without them.

The fact that you equate reporting of predictions with reporting of news events explains a lot about the mindset of MSM deniers. I hadn't realized that before but it makes perfect sense now. Thanks for sharing.

If you ONLY watch, read or listen to 1 dided sources you would NOT know how bad they really are.

CNN was CAUGHT giving the questions to Hillary BEFORE the debates just for 1 example.

This helps to explain why there is so much bias in the media...





IF YOU HAD A HUNCH THE NEWS SYSTEM WAS SOMEWHAT RIGGED AND YOU COULDN'T PUT YOUR FINGER ON IT, THIS MIGHT HELP YOU SOLVE THE PUZZLE.

ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.

CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama's Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications.

ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay Carney

ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama's Deputy Press Secretary

ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama's Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood

CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton's Deputy Secretary Tom Nides.

George Stepnonopolis was a Clinton advisor.

Chris Mathews worked for top liberal DEM in Congress


Ya think there might be a little bias in the news? Ya Think?

The media has LOWER approval rating, the left lives and breathes polls, then even Congress.
