    Maybe, do you want me to go turn that channel on? Will it make you feel better about what I said about CNN and MSNBC? Like if I turn on Fox and it turns out to be pure shit and I tell you that, you'll feel better about the fact that you actually like this crap CNN and MSNBC are ruminatively obsessing about in round-the-clock fashion?

    Well if you don't know the difference between actual news and opinion shows, I can't help you.

    So you don't watch Fox News yet you want to take CNN and MSNBC to task? That's pretty funny. Selective outrage at it's best.

    Watch Hannity - he has his ass so far up MM behind it's embarrassing.

I can hardly understand how any of you could even tolerate listening to this shit, much less find meaning and entertainment in it.
    I don't, and I hate having the news on in the background.

    I have an idea which of you have this shit playing 24/7. And I can say, now I understand why you start countless threads fixating obsessively on Trump. It's because you are feeding this shit to your brain around the clock.
    So, if one watches CNN and MSNBC one will produce an inordinate amount of anti-Trump threads? Hmmm.......

    What I don't understand is why you keep doing it, and why you haven't snapped out of it and realized you need to turn this shit off. It's exhausting.
    What about those who watch FOX? Or those who continually start threads based on a flushing from Breitbart?

    No, but if one produces an inordinate amount of anti-Trump threads, it would make sense based on what one sees when turning on CNN or MSNBC what might be inspiring one to start such threads.

    What about those who watch FOX?
    What about them? Why is everyone asking me about Fox News over and over again? Does something on Fox News somehow legitimize the garbage being spewed by CNN and MSNBC?

    Because you appear to have selective outrage. Fox News is the poster child for MM...most of it garbage from what I have watched with Hannity, again, being the worst.

    No, I just found it odd that you'd omit that outlet when it is just as guilty. Why select leftist outlets for the focus of your thread when the right are just the same?

    Most news shows today are nothing more than tabloid faire. I do watch MSNBC when certain hosts are on but even then I have to walk away. As for CNN, I can take a few minutes and then leave in disgust. There are no truly objective news left on the TV as far as I can tell. The worst is Fox. It is pure propaganda, unwatchable unless you are a mouth breather. It is sad but that is where we are today.
    Thanks from Blues63 and Neomalthusian

    Confused? No. Concerned yes. I say thank goodness we have a watchdog on the job 24/7 because we need that now more than ever. Not for shit like Hillary's emails or Obama's Birth Certificate but on matters of grave importance. We have a severely dysfunctional and sick man as our President who has no idea what he's doing. We have another ill person half a world away building and testing nuclear weapons and Ballistic missiles.
    And sick man number one is threatening sick man number two on a daily basis. We've got number two moving a battle group into the waters off of the Korean peninsula and we've got another super power meddling in our elections all at the same time. So, what would you have those cable network shows covering? Horse Shows?
    This is a very serious situation and no one seems to be driving this bus. I want to know everything possible about all of this. We have the network that's a wholly owned subsidiary of the GOP playing redneck music to glorify nut number two's bombings without a purpose or a strategy.
    And on top of that, we've got an executive branch made up of elitest snobs so ill suited to their jobs that they may be even less effective than nut job two. This is exactly what we progressives were afraid of. A clueless, tactless moron antagonizing another one while the world waits to see if one or the other blinks or simply pushes some buttons. If you see these probes as strictly propaganda then it's you who's confused. I'm willing to put up with some vitriol as long as they keep lines of communication open and constantly update the American people.

    There is a huge difference in a constant stream of anti-Trump propaganda being shoved down your throat and then updates on an investigation.

    If all CNN did was update its audience on the progress of congressional investigations then I - of course - would not have any problems with that. But anyone who watches that network knows that's not what they do.

    If you want to remain uninformed about the Trump/Russia connection, watch FoxNews.
    Now put those hands over your ears and sing LA LA LA.....

    No I don't. I listened to CNN and MSNBC and was amazed at how obsessive it was. I'm not required to go watch and then comment on Fox News to make you feel better. No matter how shitty Fox News is, it doesn't change anything I said about CNN and MSNBC does it?
