    Yeah I mean, I get it, there are definitely some outlier examples where CNN or Huffpo are criticizing Trump in some ridiculous and meaningless way (like the temperature of his steak), and these are instances of irresponsible journalism, but I just don't understand why anyone would care so much? Why they would be concerned about that and not the South Park episode which is occurring every day in the White House? Donald Trump being leader of the free world is a disaster, a nightmare beyond imagination, it just doesn't make sense to me when people who claim not to be Trump supporters get outraged about the media's coverage of him. And this "issue", for some reason, takes precedence before the massive network of literal fake news ("literal" as in FALSE news, not just what Trump calls "fake news") being propagated on the right, often even prodded by Trump himself. And conservative media acted similarly during Obama's presidency, remember the Tan suit incident? Criticizing trivial things that the President does is not unique to Trump's presidency even if it is heightened.

    There's more than one investigation, that one was essentially ran by Republicans so there's no surprise here. Mueller's investigation has always been the only legitimate one. And the House Intelligence Committee also went on to deny that the Russians' meddling favored Trump, parting with the conclusions of every single United States intelligence agency. That alone makes them a joke and renders their conclusions not credible. Not saying Trump did collude but this is absolute partisan bullshit and frankly a bit of a disgrace.

    Are liberals bashing him for it? All I've seen was an article discussing how the White House has to back away from Trump saying he will meet with him because he announced it without speaking to his foreign policy team and without knowing that U.S policy has always been that there will be a meeting with the Kim Jongs only after serious concessions in their nuclear program.

    What makes it fair is that we get to buy it all at such low prices.

    The original Anything Goes is sooooooo much better man.

    Examples as flat out silly as this are hard to find though, don't you think? . When people disagree with you on the topic of the liberal media, it is normally as a matter of degree, as no one would deny that a media bias exists but it often appears you are discounting the media for simply reporting the things that Trump says and does. I also find very often that Trump supporters (I can't say whether you are doing this or not) use outlier examples like this from CNN to defend Trump, to help argue that he's not as bad as we all think, or to discount ALL other mainstream media coverage of Trump, which just doesn't work. It is difficult to analyze for bias when we are dealing with most likely the worst president to ever live, a complete and utter moron who very often says moronic or at the very least outrageous things. Any media outlet which is HONESTLY covering Trump is going to appear biased because the things he says and does are just so so so frequently wrong. Two weeks ago he literally didn't know what a community college was, yesterday he did not know that a movie rating system that accounts for violence exists...is the media supposed to ignore these crazy quotes of his? The question I always ask to those who cry media bias over Trump is what would "fair" coverage of Trump look like? Is there an example that exists right now? Which news outlet, for you, stays closest to the truth as far as Trump goes?

    This is so cringey on both ends. How did CNN imagine this segment going?

    Conversation I had at work: Coworker: did you watch the interviews with the other kids at the school in Florida? Me: no Coworker: Good, because they're actually all crisis actors. What the fuck do I say to this?
  9. Probably not since restaurants are legally allowed to pay $2.83 an hour to servers, unless there's a plan on changing that too.
  10. Increasing the minimum wage is an absolute must (speaking from Pennsylvania, where it's $7.25), but I always thought the whole #fightfor15 campaign was far too drastic of an increase in such a short time.

    They did that and made some other efforts, for example, they created and spread fake information about Clinton as well as pro Trump propaganda through social media through the use of bots, it was actually a really large and expansive campaign. Another superpower influencing another's election is very concerning (but yeah, it could definitely be called hypocritical). Russia's goals are usually at odds with the US's or aimed at weakening the United States' influence. It was actually reported that they were able to hack some GOP politicians as well but chose not to release it as it didn't suit their goals. I'm sure the DNC had pretty strong cybersecurity measures in place but when you're being targeted by hackers funded by a superpower it's tough, the hackers would be among the best in the world and have access to the latest tech. I don't see how what you are saying there makes the hacking any less significant. It may show that they weren't as careful as they could've been though.

    I don't think it shows he's hiding anything necessarily, it's just that if you give Trump an opportunity to not play fair then he is going to take it. He doesn't care about the approval of anyone but his base.

    Liberals talking to each other about how the memo is disputed and unreliable, conservatives talking about how it vindicates Trump... People avoid talking across the political aisle here (about politics, that is). It doesn't get anywhere because there's literally not a consensus over what reality is in America anymore. For example, I can't talk to my girlfriends family about politics because it takes 30 seconds before they bring up a literally straight up false story from Infowars or Breitbart. What discussion is there to be had at that point?

    This reminds me of conservatives' early efforts against environmental protection in the 70s/80s/90s, it's not a matter of proving any argument to the public because as long as they can muddle the issue and confuse people well enough, it will never matter what the truth was. If the memo is as I imagine it, I am confident that this is going to work REALLY well in Trump's favor. The investigation is already getting too complicated for the average attention span, the nuances that this will introduce could seal the deal.
