1. A lot of the media are no better then stenographers

Too afraid of being labelled as biased if they called it what it is.

This is especially true with radio news - where their top-of-the-hour news segment might get dropped if it "offends" the Deplorables.

2. I tend to agree.

I think we should be hitting back harder. But what do I know?

3. i agree.. and we should/could stop using the term 'infrastructure' to get funding for

..everything that makes our society run well. Including internet and roads and bridges, education etc. Since the repugs seem to want to stick to specifically descriptive terms...we need to come up with a name for it that the repugs cant moan about.

If I were prez I would call it the kitchen sink bill..

4. They have always been good at making their terms sound great and putting a positive spin on things

Pro life
Freedom Caucus
Right to Work
Values voters
Patriots
Family Council

And then demonizing our terms (socialists, liberal, BLM, Antifa, defund the police, etc)

5. When you have your own media machine, you can spout nonsense unanswered 24/7.

I know I keep harping on this, but we need to find a way to break through their wall of disinformation.
