The Media, particularly MSNBC are despicable - Including Hallie Jackson

So to follow up on the bullshit misleading article today they add a new little factoid to drive the narrative. Wait FUCKING LIE.

The meme is Trump is motivating the base with his Hitler rallies, she then dutifully posts a graphic to support the race is tightening meme. It shows Dems up 50 to 47...... in 69 competitive battleground races.

See what they did there? De ms up, so let's lead people to believe that the races are tightening buy taking a subset using only battleground races, races that would mostly be Dem pick ups.

This is just some straight out fucking bullshit lies. The same straight out bullshit that got tRump elected. Ms. Jackson should be disgusted with herself.

Get ready for the right and media moving the goal post as we get closer to election

Losing the House will become a given, Anything short of 64 House seats will be defined as a tRump success because he went out and rallied the base.

Remember that MSNBC story last week about college students not voting.

Take a look at the link below. Turns out Asian millennials are one of the the least likely groups to vote. (Sad)

So MSNBC decides to go to UCI, (University of California Irvine) A school with one of the highest percentage of Asians in the country, to make a point about college kids voting.

I know the UCI area well, have lived and worked in the area my entire post college life, and one thing I found interesting (prior to knowing that Asian millennials have low voter turn out) was the location of the video shoot. It wasn't in the middle of campus but right on the edge of campus, where buses drop kids off. UCI is not a commuter school, the location of the shoot was below a foot bridge where any kid living in the area would walk over the bridge, and mid block, so the only students in the area would be those getting off a bus.

So they focused on a group with low voter turn out, then fine tuned it to Asian millennials who bus to school. Now these kids are likely working jobs to help cover their 30k yearly tuition. (The majority are likely first generation citizens) These kids are also competing with kids that all had a 4.4 GPA to get into UCI.

So MSNBC innocently focused on one of the least likely groups to vote, but that wasn't enough, they further went down to a subset of the group and focused on those students that were most likely to be working their asses just to pay for school. MSNBC could have gone to Cal State Fullerton, a location that would have provided a much better cross section of OC College students. MSNBC could have gone 100 yards on campus to the front of the library to capture a cross section of UCI students rather than focusing on those who only ride the bus to get to school. Instead they decided to park themselves in front of a bus stop, where first generation U.S. citizens who are working their asses off to stay above water are asked to comment on an election. Now these kids parents are likely not focused on politics and have limited knowledge of U.S. politics, as they are working their asses off to get their kids through school.

Could be a big coincidence, but I think not.


I see posts almost daily stating the Dems don't do enough to get the message across

The assumption is that the media actually attempts to get the message out.

The answer is a resounding no. On October 31, 2016 the NY Times had info (verified) that tRump campaign was under investigation by the FBI. Go look at what they published. (Hint anti-Clinton)

The standard process on CNN and MSNBC is to let tRump/Repuke spew lies for 2 plus minutes, discuss the statement for 2 plus limits, this provide a minute for a Dem to respond. OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER again.

Now, think back to Obama and Clinton terms and imagine if a major auto mfg stated something anywhere near to "Ford to layoff as impact of Obama/Clinton policy which cost them 1 billion. It would be covered almost exclusively with only Republicans on to claim how Obama/Clinton was single handily ruining the nation.


Valid reason for Manchin to support Kavanaugh

None - there is no valid reason to vote for him.

He can easily side step the assault allegations and point to Kavs temperament, he can point to John Paul Steven comments and say we can't risk politicizing the Supreme Court and the Republicans can nominate someone similar to Gorsuch, who he approved. That is his out if he isn't man enough to stand up and directly address Kavs sexual assault charges.

So spare me that he has to because of the WV electorate, Bullshit. Again he can point to voting for Gorsuch, he can point to the issue of temperament and how a former Supreme Court Justice feels the same way. Doing the right thing is easy, voting to confirm means he has some serious moral issues.
