    nearly 2 years of DJT dominating the headlines and the media just can't let go.



    I've just been periodically checking in wih CNN and MSNBC going on about four hours now.

    Each time they have been talking about the appointment of special counsel....

    If that's not the media fixating on any story about Trump they can latch on to ...I'd like to test my random luck out in Vegas. If I could hit that lucky number at random every time like this....maybe someday I could be president.

    Fire all the producers.

    Fire them now.

    What ever is the media going to do without a daily Trump scandal to pull their ratings from out of the toilet?

    I have a modest suggestion.

    Why don't they try actually doing their bloody jobs?

    How about dispatching journalist out to cover the story about Turkish security guards assaulting peaceful protesters?

    Or maybe covering the story of the Tulsa cop found not guilty in the fatal shooting of unarmed black man?

    The North Korean missile test?

    The stock market tumble?

    Donald J. Trump has been the lead story all day, everyday, 24/7 for nearly two years.

    Time flies when you're having fun ...eh?

    Your mistake is thinking journalists and media outlets have some sort of obligation.

    Their only obligation is to make money.

    Once you understand that you won't be so critical of them.

    I totally agree. I think this is part of the dumbing down of America and isn't good. We have become so fixated on him and absolutely nothing else. I get Canadian tv up here and believe it or not, Trump is rarely mentioned. There is a whole big world out there and we as Americans know nothing about it. It is truly making us all "ugly Americans." Down the road when we are asked who our reps are or who the VP is or where a certain country is, the majority of Americans will have no clue. We will look dumb.

    Except it's always been this way. This is nothing new. In 1964 my family was at the Worlds Fair in New York. Candid Camera was doing a segment where they asked people the name of their congressman. They put a microphone in my dad's face and he said, "ask my wife--she knows." And she did. They didn't use my family in their segment, but they had no problem finding ignorant people.

    Maybe they are part of the "Resistance" movement to take Trump down. I hope it backfires on them and people get hardened against the filthy media networks so that by midterms the GOP sweeps elections. Non stop 24 hours a day Trump & Russia, Trump & impeachment. Nothing has been proven.

    There is more anti Trump coverage then choking puking mindless, brain damaged advertising.

    Wow... Fox coverage of air strike against pro Assad forces in Syria. Car crash in Times Square. Finally something different.

    I guess it will depend on how things turn out, no? I wouldn't put my money on Trump or the GOP. Right now they are running hard to win the votes of 40%, which is an impressive showing but won't actually...you know...win.

    Cable news has always focused on the news of the moment
    and the news of every moment since the inauguration has been the CHAOS of the Trump administration.

    Now Fox ignores most of that instead running things like the 5 year old video of 2 New Black Panthers,
    one with a billy club, standing guard at a polling location. LOL
    Thanks from Blueneck and Babba
