3. Yep.





Here is the full anonymous quote from a network executive justifying their refusal to air President Obama's Nov 2014 address for fear it would have been "overtly political." https://www.politico.com/tipsheets/play

6. I just posted that fact on another thread.

Wouldn't air Pres Obama's message on Immigration reform.. too political.

But, they'll air the Fraud on Immigration FEAR.

7. True. But Obama didn't request that they carry his 2014 speech.

So that gives the networks an out. Plus the fact that his shutdown -- and the crisis he as created -- lets the networks claim the situations are distinguishable.

9. Despite what their staff say

the networks are owned by oligarchs and scumbags just like the Con.
they are facilitating a pathological LIAR, racist who loves chaos and would tear up the Constitution without batting an eye.
