Violence/Genocide: Do not condone violence or genocide on a person or group of people. You are free to attack a person or groups ideas but you are crossing the line when calling for violence. This will be heavily enforced in threads with breaking news involving victims.

Opinion Do you actually think that CNN is "fake news"?

    I'll bet anything that if you took the challenge, you'd see the point and that you will never even attempt to defend your position with facts.

    He has a micro-dick.

    And yes, his handz are tiny.

    Anyway, if you support him, then...........................

    It's normal for the War Room, so there is that....

    For not being a hack and boldly claim that:

    So that is Lemon's view and in light of that:

    He repeatedly invites James Clapper to analyse the news, Clapper who repeatedly lied under oath to the Senate Intelligence Committee concerning the National Security Agency’s surveillance program.

    If Lemon isn't a hack, why doesn't he assume that Clapper is lying to him since if you "lie about anything, you lie about everything"?

    The Hill shows a much more reasonable stance towards Clapper:

    So your argument is that Lemon is a Hannity-type hack because he has James Clapper, a highly respected foreign-policy expert, on his show to provide analysis and isn't disrespectful to him?

    His small hands are still bigger than your small mind... So there is that also.

    No, I don't need to compare Lemon to Hannity to acknowledge that he is a hack. His "hackiness" stands on its own, especially since he doesn't confront Clapper about lying under oath etc.

    I would like to see the Don Lemon white knights address this.

    There is another egregious example I'm gonna post when I get to my desktop

    Do you really think this is a reasonable criticism? Clapper is just an Untouchable and Lemon has a duty to yell at him every time he's on the show or not invite him on?

    Quoting someone I ignore, but if you're going to call me names for asking you to clarify your position, you can just fuck off anyway.

    At least most Repukes understand what FOX news is. It is mind boggling there are people defending CNN. Politics is everything to some people

    Obviously CNN isn't fake news but this forum is jam packed with uneducated white men at the bottom of the socioeconomic barrel. Of course the majority opinion here is going to be grunting of "fake news". Meanwhile they also don't know the difference between entertainment opinion news and investigative journalism, so their opinions aren't informed enough to have any gravity. Most Trump loving respondents do get their news from entertainment blogs and don't actually know what constitutes journalism, so how can their opinion ever be informed when they choose feel good "news" over critical thinking?

    I've seen his show a few times, and it's lightweight, inoffensive stuff. He seems like a good guy. Then I see you and others expressing incredibly ugly sentiments about him, and I just ask why, and you refer to me as a white knight for him? It seems like pure hatred of the left has totally warped you guys' minds.

    This is clearly a big part of the problem (and how Hannity and Lemon, who are irrelevant to a discussion about the news, even came up). In other threads, people have indicated that they not only can't distinguish between talk shows and news programming, but they can't distinguish between staff and guests. I've seen posts like, "(network) said (something a guest said)." Such comments are always made in a biased way (specifically, confirmation bias). No one fills in the gap with "CNN said (something Jeff Lord said)."

    wait, "White Knight" is an insult? I thought that was a friendly Sherdog jab among Sherbros.

    I've been saying lately "Remember 20 years ago when you met people who would say things like "I don't watch the news cuz its all bad news, I don't even have an opinion." Have you met anyone like that lately? Me neither."

    Everyone's an expert. The information superhighway really elevated humanity.

    There was a day the only people who would talk politics with me were other newspaper readers. Those days are long gone.

    @Jack V Savage

    @The Big Bang

    first off, none of my disdain for Don Lemon has anything to do with him being gay, or black, or being anti Trump. IDGAF about any of those.

    it is clips like this, where he derails, interrupts his guests, and even cuts off the conversation to go to commercial break:



    and downright overt racist nonsense like this:



    And @bobgeese already referenced this, but watch this interview:




    do you find this to be responsible Journalism, do you find this to be objective?
