We'll wait.

Your statement is the fake news, and is unsuprising as such. Just like your MSM propaganda arm's every day "reporting".
Well, you tried to narrowly define my comment to make it impossible, even though all I said was 'step out of line", but you got it almost word for word (take out the part in parenthesis about Antifa specifically). Hannity and Breitbart both repeatedly spread Russian Troll pieces about the Seth Richards Hoax. All of that starts at the top, which would be Putin:

Supports end of US, Check
Intimidates populace, check
disrupts non-violent protest to suppress free speech, check
threatens opposition, check
commonly attacks people on the street, check

Don't wait too long. Yes, I realize these things happen in Russia, but it is exactly the case I was talking about.

My point, which you seemed to either ignore, or completely miss, though, is that on the left, when people step out of line, they are held accountable by their own. Look at the difference of how Al Franken (who turns out may not be as guilty as thought) was handled, versus the accused (and likely guilty) rapist, Kavenaugh. You guys protect your own, we hold ours accountable. Will you be able to find anecdotal cases where that is not the case? I would assume yes. Some will be legit, many will be based on your own fake news and alternative facts.

My point, was, and still is, that for all the whining and all the butt-hurt your side cries about, we hold our media much more accountable than yours. You guys have to support and spread lies, because the truth does not support or promote your agenda.

They are decidedly not left. They are as dead center as you can find in domestic journalism today.

You can't really fire a freelancer. You can decide to not use their services in the future, but they're not your employee, so......

From your lips to G-d's ears.

Jeez, wouldn't it be great if we could determine how our taxes were used.

I would not give the Pentagon a dime for a base or troops outside the USA.

I would not give a dime for road construction on federal land so oil companies could access petroleum leases.

And I'd damn sure let Israel stand on their own.

Then if this were true... you'd be a dictator. Unfortunately for you and fortunately for the majority of Americans, we have representative rule.

I guess you believe in single party rule too? If you had stated we live in a time of over taxation with under representation then you invite a discussion, but alas... I digress.

Sorry, should have inserted a laughing face. I was being a smart ass.

I really do not think anybody is over taxed, well maybe property taxes in Texas cities.

If NPR is "Dead Center " as you say . You have a problem in defining Centrists and we have a problem in " Journalism ".
