    What's their excuse this time for supporting Trump. Hillary is out of the picture. Trump has been able to accomplish zero and the next two men up to bat are both still Republicans. Don't tell me, Trumpster supporters don't like them either? At this point maybe they are just self hating and want to fail and blame other people. That's it, they are like Trump himself.

    Most Americans believe it was inappropriate for Donald Trump Jr. to agree to meet with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer who was said to have damaging information about Hillary Clinton, a new HuffPost/YouGov survey finds.

    The story, which has dominated the news this week since Trump Jr. tweeted out a copy of his email exchanges preceding the June 2016 meeting, has drawn widespread media attention and heavy scrutiny in some quarters.

    A majority of poll respondents, 53 percent, said it was inappropriate for Trump Jr. to take the meeting. Just 22 percent considered it appropriate, with the remaining quarter unsure.

    More than three-quarters of the public say they’ve heard at least something about the story, although only a third say that they’ve heard a lot

    wow. The majority say that the meeting was inappropriate. But, the majority , mostly Trump supporters, also say they really just don't care? I'm seriously starting to wonder if Trump approved of a Russian military parade down the streets of DC if they'd be ok with that? Because it's becoming clearer everyday that all Trump supporters care about is themselves.
    say thank you to the media.

    But, what I don't do is allow the government to determine which media stories are "fake news" ( especially the president). Falling in line with "state approved" news outlets is about as unpatriotic as it gets. Wouldn't you agree?

    the media has been preaching it was wrong.

    That is a valid point there. Outside of forum nerds, most of the population has diminishing interest in national/world affairs.

    (unless of course it affect them personally....)

    not sure what point you're trying to make. But, there are too many Trump supporters out there that attack the media based solely on the president telling them not to trust what they say about him. That's a dangerous place for this country to be in. Trump is demonstrating that he's the perfect sort of president Putin would want. All he does 24/7 is work to rip this country apart.

    media reporting influences public perception and their opinion.

    that's what I'm saying. It's healthy not to trust the media. But, we should all be using our own critical thinking skills to determine for ourselves which reports to trust. It's dangerous for this country to have so many people allowing the president to make that determination for them. Our media consumption should not be "state approved". Surely, you must agree with this.

    the media is too much using opinions and speculation to influence the public's opinion rather than the facts in a story.
