Thread: The Trump Presidency

  1. They won't ever fix it because they don't want it fixed. They need the press to serve as one of the many "others" to point fingers at. They know it's biased and they don't care. It's why we see so many talking heads rail against media bias but offer no solutions or alternatives. Anyone with common sense knows how to look for the whole story and not rely on a single network, but the same dipshits shaking their fists at the biased media need people to live inside the bubble they're peddling. Shit like Fox and CNN count on it. The evil press is a constant, reliable enemy to fight against.

    Also, those people deserved that police beat down.
    If Biden gets in and reforms police then maybe. Else let the rabble rise.

    I wouldnít say that. They definitely donít dwell as much as American news does but they curate the stories they want influencing viewers the same as any other network.

People like Trump love to point a finger at the media, call it fake news, etc., but they have no "real" alternative to offer in its place. Moreover, they run to that same "fake" media every chance they get. They have no true rage at the press; it's all a show to give them yet one more "other" to present to idiots as the enemies of the people. It's the same "this is bad, but I got nothing to offer in its place" bullshit they use with things like healthcare and SS.
    The alternative is someone like amazon or facebook running their own news channel where the product isnt the news but their own commercials between the news. The news itself is just facts, local events and weather.

    Google, facebook, and amazon could even tie it to your search history to show targeted ads. That would be where the real money would be.

    Getting people scared and angry so they watch news all day, maximizing comerical viewership needs to end. It's a big part of how we ended up where we are today. We have a bunch of 50 year olds addicted misery porn. Its slowly killing them and the country.

  4. Last night was another peaceful protest in portland. Protesters peacefully lit a fire inside the fence and then peacefully shot bottle rockets the building. The feds then peacefully gassed them.

    The peaceful war with eastasia continues.

  5. I'm hearing a lot about "sentient property that can experience violence" and I just don't buy it.

    Maybe ending qualified immunity and police unions are worth some buildings?

    We're living "some animals are more equal than others" right now.

  7. How many buildings with people inside them are those worth?

  8. However many it takes?

  9. Lol, like this has anything to do with buildings. The feds basically abdicated all responsibility on a nationwide pandemic to the states, but holy shit! We absolutely need a federal response to defend some buildings!

  10. By feds you mean democratic and repulblican state leaders, right?

    "Get out of mah state, feds go home!"

    "Feds fault for corona virus not states!"

    Uhhhhuhhhh.

    Always someone elses fault.
