    Rules For Radicals is manifest for the American Left and their media, which with very little exception is all media.

    Because the MSM have seemingly lost all sense of journalistic ethics, run with stories that they know to be false, create false narratives (always slanted in favor of the left), and in general they are focused on creating the news rather than reporting it. And they do it every day, not just the occasional “mistake”.

    Not even the best reporter in the World could sell this to the viewers.

    LOL. Haven't you figured out yet that none of the MSM news outlets care about outcomes? Check out Rupert Murdoch's political history - doesn't quite fit with Fox News' platform. It's all about viewership - and since they can just make crap up and cite anonymous sources all day to stir emotions, the citizenry are the true losers - while the MSM outlets laugh all the way to the bank.

    Trump had a rally in Duluth, Minnesota last night, 60% were NOT republicans. 21% were democrats, 16% didn't vote in the 2016 and a percentage didn't vote in the past four Presidential elections.. These numbers are similar in all of Trump's rallies. It's going to take a lot of ballot stuffing to get a Biden win.

    Vanity Fair.....once a gentleman's "fashion" magazine and perpetual host of what is arguably the most swank of Oscar parties...has been trying to re-invent itself after owner Conde Nast posted record losses. Current E-i-C Radhika Jones took over a few years ago and basically fired a bunch of people. Her first choice for magazine cover after she took over....

    [​IMG]
    Lena is a gay comedy writer. So Radhika set the tone for where the magazine was going. Here's a list of articles featured in September's issue


    — Ta-Nehisi Coates Guest-Edits THE GREAT FIRE, a Special Issue
    Breonna Taylor’s Beautiful Life, in the Words of Her Mother
    — An Oral History of the Protest Movement’s First Days
    — Celebrating 22 Activists and Visionaries on the Forefront of Change
    — Novelist Jesmyn Ward on Witnessing Death Through a Pandemic and Protests
    Angela Davis and Ava DuVernay on Black Lives Matter
    — How America’s Brotherhood of Police Officers Stifles Reform


    It's clear what is going on. Vanity Fair is tying liberal democratic policies to Hollywood in a formal way and directing their attention to the young "woke" crowd. They never will be serious journalists.

    unnamed sources blah blah blah. Maybe they should do a break down of the Biden campaign. That seems to be going swimmingly. lol

    Pretty sure my suggestion was to listen to both sides, we get dozens of right wing blog articles every week and go nuts when the left posts one. Sometimes I really wonder if posters are just totally clueless or just uniformed.

    You may not be smart enough to figure this out on your own so let me help you. The media is supposed to report news, not deliver editorials. Unfortunately the main stream media does not even try to hide their bias, so when someone like you hops onto a soap box to decry Tump ripping the media, we all laugh at you since the left never attempts to produce anything with journalistic integrity.

    During the LA blm protests I watched live local news. Really the only way to get the truth, reporters on the ground at events. I can not name any source that does not have a bias other than the financial news.

    You do not care about unbiased news, you just want us to believe the right wing blogs. The ones telling us covid is a hoax, and a bunch of Q conspiracys.

    You really are a stupid person.

    Like how you have to validate your spin by naming Q in your post. Tick Tock, bitch!

    Here is a thread in which I have no idea what the losers I have on ignore are saying, but with one post like this from Bill I actually do. It is sort of like a table game from Milton Bradley, and a lot more fun than actually reading their crap.

    But... but... haven't you heard? Those are all publications good conservatives regularly read. /s

    It's always good to understand both sides of an issue. But that's not what we're talking about, here. Here, it's more a case of having two stacks of math textbooks. In one stack, they all say 2 + 2 = 4. The other stack, they all say 2 + 2 equals something else - 5 or 7 or 33.

    Your argument is that we all need to read the latter stack to get a more rounded perspective. Do we, though? Do we? No, not really. And why is that? Because qualitatively, the latter stack is garbage, and we already know it's garbage. Our perspective won't be improved via exposure to a pile of garbage, and time is a precious commodity.
