Comment Re:Now watch Hillary shills circlejerk in approval (Score 2) 312

Well, that would be fair turnabout for all the Clinton/Bernie supporters who attack Trump supporters, steal their signs, and vandalize GOP campaign offices, but I don't think they've sunk as low as that in that regard. If anyone has lived up to the Brown shirts ideal this election, it's been the Leftists, because actions speak louder than words.

Not if those messages outright contradict. That's not "tailoring" a message, that's lying, and it's especially not the same circumstance as some average Joe who yaks to his bar buddies, and someone who's currently running for high office; or would you like to use that defense for Trump too? He wasn't running for office 11 years ago, and maybe he was just talking smack, bragging to "bar buddies", "tailoring his message" to look more suave to them. Don't buy that? Good. Neither do I, but neither do I buy Hillary's innocence either.
BTW, nice ad-hominem dig in there to anyone who doesn't support your goddess as "small minded folk" and "anti-intellectual" (sounds Obama-esque). Why just insult the candidate you don't like when you can insult the people who won't support your pick as well?

It only appears one-sided because the media appears quite willing to publish any dirt they can find Trump. We don't need to go to Wikileaks for that.

We also don't need any single media source to be impartial. We need multiple partial media sources to keep each other on their toes.

This is how I've always viewed Fox New's claim of "Fair and Balanced"; not internally, everyone knows they're right wing, but in the context of MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, NYT, Huffpost, NPR, Salon, Vox, Mic, Mother Jones, etc.. it provides a little balance in the media overall.

Not a total load of bullshit. I never said they didn't contribute to Rs, but the CEO is democrat, the organization is generally "progressive" and they have liberal leanings.
The Koch brothers also donated heavily to democrats, yet they are firmly labeled here as conservatives.

I denounce this racist spin for advancing the hillbilly prejudice against brown people as rapis..., err, never mind, scammers. This advances the othering and contributes to building of evil walls instead of welcoming bridges.

Obviously, specifying the criminals' country of origin, sex and gender-identity (not the same!!!!) as well as religion or skin-color, is racist.

(Unless, of course, they are White Christian males.)

And Poynter are the same openly liberal people who own the Tampa Bay Times, and politifact. But y'know, they're totally objective in their judgements, no bias whatsoever there.
