Really, show me a right-wing unbiased report that does beat on Trudeau for immersing his children in the local culture and wearing the national attire, teaching his children the beauty of other cultures???????????

You’re talking about biased news, not fake news.

It’s hard to resist comparing the fairly innocuous coverage of Trudeau’s embarrassing antics in India to the blood bath of negative coverage that would ensue if Trump and his family pranced around in costumes during a state visit and a member of the president’s administration invited a man convicted of the attempted murder of an Indian cabinet minister along for the trip.

At least the media wouldn’t have to resort to made-up stories from anonymous sources. Their usual anti-Trump bias would suffice.

"right-wing unbiased report" is an oxymoron. :smt045

A quick deconstruction might give the impression that I intended to dismiss or demean Eric Weinstein. Not so, just trying to get a better understanding of the evolution of his thoughts on the narrative of the media. :138:

One of the few things I like about federal Liberal supporters is that they can at least acknowledge when one of their own screws up, and take the lumps, unlike NDP supporters who are just mindless unquestioning propaganda-spewing zombies. You are starting to change my impression of federal Liberal supporters with every post like the one above.

Does this hurt your feelings? Trudeau is inking billions and billions of international trade deals and investments. Breaking positive economic records monthly, Lowest unemployment in 40 years, Fastest growing economy, best tourism year ever. The Conservative attack Canada's Security Intelligence service..........REPUBLICAN MUCH?

No, but the truth about Trudeau's bumbling and lying sure seems to be hurting yours.

No he's not. He's just announcing them. A monkey could do that.

Ok...not sure of your facts there but fine...

They are attacking the Liberals for getting an official to lie about the Indian government, LIE MUCH?

cnn numbers crashing... :130:

CNN’s Ratings Collapse Marches into June

Far-left cable channel CNN suffered a massive ratings collapse in May. June is shaping up to be worse.

CNN stumbled out of May with a massive -25 percent ratings collapse when compared to the same month last year. Because Fox News actually experienced total viewer growth and MSNBC’s loss was a negligible two percent, we know the problem is CNN and not the news cycle or Americans tiring of the news.

To understand just how awful of a week CNN just had, you have to understand just how bad the entire month of May was for the anti-Trump cable channel.

Average Total Primetime Viewers in May 2018

Fox News: 2.38 million

MSNBC: 1.65 million

CNN: 835,000

Average Total Day Viewers in May 2018

Fox News: 1.4 million

MSNBC: 911,000

CNN: 654,000

So, the lefties find the comforting lies of MSNBC preferable to those of CNN. God bless free enterprise. :up: [icon_lol2.gif]

Honest journalism pales in comparison for entertainment value, especially among the weak minded. Fox news ratings are proof of this, that positioning it's audience as the victim of an imaginary antagonist keeps them glued.

CNN is just painful to watch because they try to provide a balanced view by using panels of conservatives and liberals to discuss matters. The fact that outside right wing echo chamber, conservative narratives are simply absurd, makes CNN almost unwatchable. I will make an exception for Fareed Zakaria's GPS, which at least provides credible conservatives that don't continually insult your intelligence.

And speaking of insulting your intelligence, then there's prime time Fox with the likes Carlson and Hannity. When caught peddling conspiracy theories, or having conflicts of interest, they simply claim to be entertainers not news anchors. This way they don't have to play by the same rules of journalistic integrity as other news broadcasters. The fact that Hannity is even still on the air, after the revalation his misleading attacks on the Mueller investigation, and specifically their raid on Cohen's office, were self serving, is just further proof that when it comes to right wing media, they simply don't have to play by the same rules. This is because their clueless viewers aren't savvy enough to know the difference between entertainment and legitimate news, and Fox news is clever enough to exploit this weakness among the American public all the way to the bank.

Agreed, CNN is just painful to watch. Especially when they give a platform to plagiarizing twits like Fareed Zakaria.

Watching CNN is like opening an e-mail attachment from a 'Nigerian Prince.' No good will come of it, but some people just can’t resist the allure of easy riches, or cable noise ‘personalities’ pandering to their viewers’ childish and obsessive hostility toward anything that doesn’t conform to their myopic leftist paradigm.

It’s amazing that credible anything, let alone “credible conservatives” can still be found on that low rated disaster of a channel. It’s nothing short of inspirational that a virtuous few are still willing to take the time to reach out to all the wretched unfortunates who are so dazed and confused by CNN’s avalanche of mindless drivel that they’ve lost the ability to comprehend the means by which their agony can be arrested and even reversed. They just have to rouse themselves from their stupor long enough to change the channel like everyone else has.

I like to think that as long as some CNN viewers are still able to walk and chew gum, there is hope, and that whenever they feel they’re ready to start dealing with reality again, the highly rated Fox News Channel and its unparalleled array of informative opinion and hard news programs will be here for them. :up:

Proves that you can lead a donkey to water but you can't make them drink. By the way, he had Steve Bannon on for an entire hour last week. Think it takes a credible and confident news anchor to show both sides of an issue and Fareed consistently does.

I noticed you didn't comment about the fact many Fox personalities call themselves entertainers and not news anchors. Don't blame you because it makes this comment look extremely daft. It's a shame, I can tell you're not a complete idiot by your writing style but you have allowed yourself to be mislead. Unlike some in your faction, there is still hope for you. Turn off Fox, allow yourself a chance to come out of your trance, and join us in the real world. :up:

Globalism:
The operation or planning of economic and foreign policy on a global basis.

On Sunday, Trump tweeted that he was working with President Xi Jinping to get electronics maker ZTE “back into business, fast. Too many jobs in China lost,” he added. “Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!”


Why do you go on and on about globalists in every thread, yet continue to blindly support a president who does that very thing (albeit whimsically and non-sensibly)?

Because just like the good little comrade in the Whitehouse, he does everything Putin tells him too. Really is a shame how easily some have been manipulated into working towards their own demise.
