    But, keep this in mind.

    Millions of Americans do know the difference as evidenced by Trump's victory.
    Fake news is easy. Anything you're selling.

    Um...ten million people voted for someone other than Putin's Cock Holster. So, whatever point you think you were trying to make is moot.

    Capitalism fails when there is no competitor. When one idea, method, product has a monopoly and there is no other choice for consumers.

    In my opinion, Americans could function if Fox was serving red pablum and MSNBC was serving blue pablum and CNN was telling the news.

    If CNN is the political version of Entertainment Tonight. That leaves pablum, pablum or pablum.
    Well, I think if you sampled each you'd find differences. Mind you, they might be subtle differences and it'd still be all-Trump-all-the-time. But, in business, you play to what the market demands.

    LOLOL The inbreds line up to vote for a fool and suddenly they are media experts. You crack me up.
    WTH are you posting about ...

    You guys have lost every single election for the last 6 years.

    Every special election ...

    Who the hell is voting for your insanity?

    Take a look at reality ....

    The American voters don't give a sh*t about your insanity.

    2018 .... 2020 .... no one supports your insanity.

    Just saying ...

    And none of that dumb shit has anything to do with me or my point. You're making assumptions that don't apply.

    1. I haven't lost an election for six years.

    2. I'm perfectly sane, more so than usual, and I don't fall for crank stories.

    3. I don't care about the American voter.

    4. 2018 & 2020 haven't occurred yet.

    Just sayin'....

    There are differences.

    MSNBC is shilling for a political party (aka not real news), Fox is shilling for the other ( aka not real news) and CNN (for decades the actual news) is now just a 24/7 platform to bring down the a president (aka not real news)

    You can say that's just business or that's just what the market demands - but that is a SERIOUS problem.

    Is Reuters still considering a TV network? They might be the last hope.

    Well everyday is pretty much is all about Trump because either something new about Russia comes out or he does something stupid.

    CNN covered Obama pretty extensively as well so I don't get why this is a "thing"...

    Oh, I'm not denying it's a SERIOUS problem. I just don't think it's anything real new. The main difference now is that what was overkill before is more obvious overkill because instead of the focus being on the Dems or the 'Pubs... it's on one person, Trump.
    Thanks from HayJenn
