    too, funny.
    Fox News says it's "fair and balance". They spend substantial time calling out "the liberal media". Now, here you are repeated that talking point.

    Yes, the mainstream media makes mistakes in a small percentage of stories and it's the same percentage it's always been. Dan Rather is one the best journalists this country has ever known. He made one small mistake and so people like the OP want to just dismiss and disrespect everything he ever did and the media and general. That attitude goes a long way toward explaining why we have the disaster that currently resides in the White House.
    Thanks from the watchman and Dangermouse

    The link is to the exact story that I summed up in that post. Dan Rather tried to push a news story based on forged documents. Since you are proudly unaware of that, the link is to bring you up to speed. But since you are too fucking lazy to read it and perfectly happy to be ignorant, then there's nothing else to be done here except for you to shut the fuck up and leave this to people who actually are aware of the Dan Rather fake documents story.
    Dan Rather made a mistake, he admitted to it. He didn't actively try to peddle likes, like Fox news does, while amazingly claiming they are fair and balanced and the entire rest of the world is biased. So, in your simple mind, pointing out Dan Rather proves that media is biased? LOL, what a joke.

    LOL, yeah, I'm a troll (come up with a new line child). yet all you can muster up as a response is to copy and paste links that have nothing to do with peoples actual argument and your typical obfuscation and calling of a troll. I'm starting to wonder if you are even capable of reading

    The topic is media bias, is it not? There is no more bias media than Fox news. And as usual, more deflecting from my on topic argument from you. Man, you really are a sad child

    now, now. That's not fair. Trump spends more time on vacation , away from the WH, than any president in history. He even bragged about it during his speech to South Korea yesterday.

    Even in making his mistake, he didnt make anything up, and as I recall, though the paperwork was fake, the information was essentially true.

    Why fucking bother?
    If you see a cogent and well constructed rebuttal to the OP, then by all means point it out.
