Just listening to MSNBC discussing the cancellation and reasons for it on the

Trump announcement. Perhaps I didn't hear it all but not one pundit had the courage to mention that he cancelled because he wouldn't get any coverage. Not one.

1. You doubt

that Lord Trump actually did it out of respect for the victims of the Nice attack?


I wonder if he's going to drop Pence and go with Gingrich now that this has happened? Both of them are sounding similar beats about it.

3. Agreed. I wish the pundits would do their jobs.

You know that most of them realize why he cancelled his announcement, but they're afraid to call him out.

5. MSNBC would never report on that...

Because they don't want to piss off and lose access to Trump.

7. Ever since so-called 'news' has become a source of revenue

Rather than something done for the common good, journalists have lost their teeth.

8. I blame their corporate bosses. Some of the pundits, at times, seem to choke on their words n/t.

9. They did early on talk about how he would lose the pomp and circumstance ...they had a discussion

 

about the fact that the trump campaign lost control of the VP selection once Nice happened and that their was a massive amount of confusion yesterday.

11. i think he wants his announcement to have maximum impact, and this attack is dominating the news

cycle. I think if the Democratic Convention was next week, they'd have done the same thing.
