Until now, no one has had the heart to tell Dodger that while he's spending time on F80Post, CNN's audience drops 5%.

The guy who owns the neverending Alex Jones thread castigating people as "psuedo journalists"? Priceless.

So true. I lived in the Northeast in the 1990's, and had access to several PBS networks on the radio. They demonized Newt Gingrich, and every time the guy spoke publicly they had a "news story," but never played the actual speech or even a part of it- they simply talked over him and "discussed" it. It was clear they just wanted to railroad him out of office.

I'm not a fan of Newt at all, but that's not acceptable from any news outlet - much less a taxpayer-funded one.

Perhaps you need to get better at recognizing the difference between hard news reporting and opinion?

ALL the major networks (Fox, CNN, MSNBC) broadcast a lot of opinion programs. It pays the bills after all.

I can speak for myself only but I have never watched any channel you have or we have for more than an hour straight. I run while playing Rachel Maddow from YouTube and do my stretching to see her go handsy. For almost a year I thought she was a man so I'm not exactly a good listener.

I like reading. I read five papers per day and I actually enjoy the way reporters use words. I don't get this watching news thing you guys do.
I don't watch that much, but read a lot of articles. Predominately Apple news, which includes CNN, Fox, NYT, wsj, WAPO, and many others. I also read news from the BBC app and the Associated Press app.

I'm telling you, stay away from my Rachel! I don't know how I ended up as her fan girl since I thought for a long time she was a he, I don't like her voice, I couldn't pick her from a lineup but when she does her crazy hands I pull my phone from my bra and stop running to watch the one minute hand show!

I love reading papers. During my three hour coffee time each morning I like the world to start making sense again. There is something very beautiful in the written contemporary history that is the print media.

At times I open CNN.com but I'm not a big fan of their writers, NBC is better but they all are a part of the tv block more so for news I go wapo, NYTimes, hesari, aamulehti and a few others. It's pathetic but I blame my dad for making me an addict.

Presedents that lie are nothing new. Some of them even admit to it.

That's a great point - where Trump has innovated is that he lies on EVERY topic rather than just a few, and at orders of magnitude greater than any than has come before him.

It's like saying that lebron plays basketball but basketball is nothing new

By this superb line of reasoning, we shouldn't have laws against fraud or perjury, because everyone has lied at least once in their life. Got it, thanks.

it's more that Zugzwang just doesn't expect to be treated better.

For people who are used to being taken advantage of and treated like garbage, Trump seems like a great option because at least he lies to you about it.

They do! When ever I kick the kids to the grandparents, I go fetch real paper papers from a store on a morning run. It's wonderful. The inc smells like love!

Yea but if liars lie when telling us about what liars say, how are we to know who is telling a lie or not?

Tell ya what, why not let the investigations proceed until we know what happened? Attacking the free press in our country is a sure sign there is something wrong. But please, do not compare Sean Manifee, fictional and creative writing department/ in charge of conspiracies to even radical local newpapers that are handed out free.

if ya notice something, there is a slow move (albeit glacial) toward actual pre-post-truth at Fox because even the president's big supporters don't like being lied to repeatedly.
