I Find It Kind Of Remarkable That Trump Dropping Out Of The Debate Is More Important Than Oregon ...

It is hard to get more facts out of the MSM about the Bundy arrest in Oregon and the latest details of where the situation stands right now. Isn't domestic terrorism and treason more important than a reality star not showing up at a political debate?

1. I assume

This is sarcasm.

You don't ACTUALLY think the media reports things based on what's important I hope.

2. One Would Hope As They Used To....

Watching what is going on between Trump and Fox reminds me of the hyping that goes on before a wrestling match. And it looks like the media is falling for it.

6. The media

Is largely awful and largely ignores the most important issues if it doesn't suit a narrative they're trying to push. Usually to push up raising, but other times for more nefarious reasons.

3. I felt the same way last night.

It was like pulling teeth to find anyone mentioning it. Not even a "here's what we know, the situation is fluid, we'll give you more as we know more," something, anything. Instead it was Goldilocks throwing a fit about Megyn Kelly under a "BREAKING NEWS" banner. We are screwn.

4. Why isn't Oregon just cops rounding up a street gang?

I think it's an inconsequential story because they were an inconsequential bunch of idiots.

5. The media in America are worthless

We don't have the fourth leg of our democracy anymore. They've been bought up by those who would do us harm

In school we were taught that the reason for the press being left with a hands off was to so they could be indifferent and independent in order to keep the other three legs of that stool accountable. That is no longer taught, I suspect.

I'm damn near 68 YO so 'in school' for me was a long ass time ago.

7. If only there were some way to choose only the stories that I feel are most important,

and be able to peruse only those stories to my heart's content.

But when our only news sources are a few TV channels, radio, and a daily newspaper, we're pretty much stuck.

8. I'm surprised that people might feel

that Oregon thing was important. In what way?

10. Well,

"Blue Tarp Man" is dead.
With all of the pics of that "brave defender" that traveled through the web, you'd think they'd at least mention that?
