    I remember during the Ferguson riots, Fox news was right in the think of it showing people rioting, looting, and setting things on fire. Meanwhile CNN and the other Liberal networks were on the other end of town playing dumb saying "There is no unrest going on here, everything is calm"

    Any source or video evidence of this? I just looked it up and YouTube has tons of CNN content showing the riots in Ferguson. Fox was probably showing the LA Riots saying it was Ferguson

    Yeah, me. I am the source. I flipped back and forth the night that it started. It was like the tale of 2 different stories depending on which network that you watched.

    You see mr hucklbuck, you’re dealing with a liberal who exists in their own little safe space. Any facts that violate their safe space is immediately dismissed.

    Liberals are unable to deal with anything that conflicts with their imaginary view of the world. Consequently, this is who liberals are wholly unable to deal with difficult issues like terrorism, homelessness, etc.


    Plus, zeb is the bottom of the barrel. Like, free card in Japan bottom.

    I believe all main stream media is compromised. They are CIA/leftist/globalist bought and paid for propaganda machines going back to Walter Cronkite. The coordination isn't even subtle anymore. Blatant in your face leftist/socialist/Marxist anticonstitutional antiamerican evil. Half of America completely eats it up.

    The news division, no. But any cable news program that masquerades editorial opinion as news is worthy of our contempt. Even Fox has honest journalists reporting the truth.

    hello and well met, zebby23,

    yes, as the rioting and mayhem and torching of Ferguson got underway, FoxNews' intrepid reporters (and only them) were in the middle of it, scooping CNN, (America's MSM had descended upon Ferguson like it was hosting the Superbowl) which claimed that all was well in Ferguson that evening. yup!

    lol.

    oh boy...

    And that same guy was arguing that the public should not know where the president gets his money. Probably just a troll.

    Don't forget those meat-eating vegetarians.

    It's a little dangerous to compare CNN to other news networks or anchors like Hannity. That's when the lighthearted discussion becomes a bit serious. Comparing anybody with the likes of Lemon or Cuomo is just dirty. CNN has incurred the moniker of "Enemy of the people" for good reason. Tapper, Cuomo, and Lemon being included in any serious discussion with Fox News anchors is a gross picture of ignorance. And I am more than happy to call out Fox on their bullshit biases. But CNN is in a league of their own in terms of poisonous alt-Left rhetoric and willingness to propogate lies and mistruths about the President.

    You must reeeeeeeeeeeeally love Trump huh.

    And I know, I know, you're prob gonna respond by saying that you don't like him, right?

    CNN is not fucked like Fox.

    Trump is beyond a liar and beyond corrupt.

    How DARE a news organization read his dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb tweets on air........................... *GASP!*

    In a civilized- and decent world, journalists and reporters should keep people accountable for their lies, whether it be Trump, Hannity or Clapper.

    In the world that we are currently living in, where half-truths and omissions are ingrained in all stages and echelons of life, the least I would expect from Lemon is to inform viewers that Clapper is a person that has no qualms about lying under oath, not on every episode but at least make it widely known.

    I 100% believe it is scripted news. When they have Their talking heads, they plot that shit out and have scripts that says “at the 1 min mark, redneck talking head will say something inflammatory and black talking head will take moral high ground with an element oh no you di nt!”

    seriously, I do think they plan those discussions out with at the very least, an outline. And they aren’t the only ones
