Of course. If it makes Trump look bad, it must be media's fault, facts be damned. Brilliant way to take the country down. CovfefeButDeadly saysThese assholes wonder why people hate the media.https://patrick.net/post/1330788/2020-03-15-obama-and-trump-response-to-pandemics
These assholes wonder why people hate the media.
You addressed literally none of the points I made
If you scream wolf everyday, soon everyone stops listening.
I knew 11 years ago and warned obama and he did nothing
We are totally set to pivot towards authoritarianism, with half or so of the country supporting it..
Dude, you've been crying the same "wolf" since 2016 and yet not a single step towards authoritarianism has been realistically made. The word has almost lost its meaning because of all this misuse, just like "racism" and "nazi".... and "literally". =))
We are totally set one of these years to pivot towards authoritarianism, with half or so of the country supporting it..
Why would you sway anyone
Of course. If it makes Trump look bad, it must be media's fault, facts be damned. Brilliant way to take the country down.
In the Watergate days, a lot of people that voted for Nixon, at some point decided, "hey, I was wrong, this guy sucks." Sure, you can argue it was the liberals fault for going after him, for doing a bunch of illegal shit. That could truly not happen now, no way, and it's a problem on both sides, but more so I believe on the right. When was the last time you heard a Democrat leader boast, "stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody."
We knew three years ago coronavirus virus was coming
I argue that that simply wasn't true 30 to 50 years ago. It might have been somewhat true, but nothing like what is is now.
:CovfefeButDeadly saysWhy would you sway anyonePart of my point is that it's totally impossible to sway anyone. My side too. This doesn't prevent one side or the other from being right from time to time. We should be fighting for mechanisms to find facts and truth. To find agreement and occasionally to solve problems. Instead it always political war.That's not easy when even reality has a left wing bias.
Also the media was far less left wing in general.
So you don't agree that no matter what Trump does, literally NO MATTER WHAT HE DOES, there is is a huge media apparatus and a large segment of the population, at least 40% or so that will always be with him ?
You guys disagree just for the sake of disagreeing. I guess as soon as I say that in my opinion it's worse on the right, that's your only take away from what I was saying. The rest of what I said (that is my actual point) is 100% ignored.
marcus saysI argue that that simply wasn't true 30 to 50 years ago. It might have been somewhat true, but nothing like what is is now. Trump's policies would have been bread and butter to any blue dog democrat 30-50 years ago. Also the media was far less left wing in general.
How they even see a conservative in him, I have no idea
This forum has become quite the right wing bubble.
