which is why the media gives them such good coverage and does not report on them factually.

He's going to lose the election so it'd be moot. jimfields33 May 16 #1
Agree. But, he'd lose by more if the News Media did their job. Kid Berwyn May 16 #2
That's true. They should at least look into it. jimfields33 May 16 #3
I'd say they fear a landslide and want 50/50 despite the repercussions. GreenWave May 16 #58
What is the opposite of moot? Jakes Progress May 16 #31
Debatable. NanaCat May 16 #70
Sounds like there are some actual journalists... and Media Matters isn't one of them FBaggins May 16 #4
Wrong. It's a major story the mainstream media buried. Kid Berwyn May 16 #6
Mainstream media didn't bury it as you've been told multiple times AZSkiffyGeek May 16 #40
Washington Post broke the story. Kid Berwyn May 16 #44
The Washington Post isn't mainstream media? AZSkiffyGeek May 16 #46
Yes, the Washington Post is mainstream. But the story IS NOT. Kid Berwyn May 16 #47
That makes no sense AZSkiffyGeek May 16 #49
No. You don't bother to read/report what the OP states. Kid Berwyn May 16 #52
So... AZSkiffyGeek May 16 #57
Nothing but smears. LOL. Kid Berwyn May 17 #84
Anything to avoid saying that the Washington Post is mainstream media AZSkiffyGeek May 17 #85
So, where's the coverage? Kid Berwyn May 17 #91
Oh, yeah, it only counts if you can see Corporate McPravda's spin AZSkiffyGeek May 17 #93

It is neither a major story - nor was it buried FBaggins May 16 #54
So don't report it as quid pro quo but do report it! CrispyQ May 16 #9
Trump wants the Fossil Fuel Industry to keep "The Gravy Train" of the status quo running ... Botany May 16 #5

Oil companies do a lot of advertising on the corporate media SocialDemocrat61 May 16 #7
Absolute Badda-Bingo! Kid Berwyn May 16 #10

I remember a pol who said: "Corporations are people, too, my friend." Kid Berwyn May 16 #16
+ 1000 jalan48 May 16 #18
Great reading about corporate personhood on this site. CrispyQ May 16 #23
Nah, its'because the OP doesn't read newspapers or the Internet AZSkiffyGeek May 16 #41
Nice smear. I worked as a staff writer/reporter for a daily newspaper. Kid Berwyn May 16 #48
I was a reporter at one of the largest papers in the country AZSkiffyGeek May 16 #62
You can report it on page 1 or page 54. hay rick May 16 #13

"Mainstream Media Refused to Report Trump's Bombshell Quid Pro Quo Offer to Big Oil Execs" AZSkiffyGeek May 16 #53
Hillary Clinton seconded Media Matters. Kid Berwyn May 17 #101

So show the reportage from NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN or Fox. Kid Berwyn May 17 #103
You keep crying for your Corporate McPravda to report this AZSkiffyGeek May 17 #105

You mean apart from facts that disprove your argument? AZSkiffyGeek May 17 #124
Ad hominem attacks are a propaganda technique. Kid Berwyn May 17 #126

Apparently the OP can't read AZSkiffyGeek May 16 #42
Media Matters published it. Kid Berwyn May 17 #114
Media Matters started this post? AZSkiffyGeek May 17 #115
Such wit serves to divert attention. Kid Berwyn May 17 #117
Why should I? AZSkiffyGeek May 17 #118
So where is the coverage in the mainstream media? Kid Berwyn May 17 #128
That link doesn't say anything about Trump, oil policy or $1B dollars AZSkiffyGeek May 17 #130

Why wouldn't you put that in your link name? AZSkiffyGeek May 17 #137
