Sums it up pretty well imo!

Re: Trump vs. CNN

i feel like this thread is some kind of introduction to what american news channels are to someone who spent 30 years in a time capsule or under a rock. but he just randomly wants to really really focus on CNN and how he thinks its awful because he loves trump.

Thanks, thats exactly how i feel!!!
Go to Europe...and experience how press/media was 30 years ago.
Whats normal for u guys...its absurd over here.

I dont care for Trump...why should I? (not from usa)
(But i like him for entertainment value yesss!)

Apparently its normal in usa that an anchor has its own private moment/talk show on the air nation wide...

I might be living under a rock...but if u think thats normal (in other parts of the world) u have been hiding somewhere as well.

Re: Trump vs. CNN

They'll find a way to make it about Trump in any thread you started. Many of them didn't even know there was a such a thing called politics until Trump was elected. So don't kick yourself too much there.

Luckbox, you never did confirm whether it was Tommy Lee Jones & Will Smith who were after you. I feel you at least owe us this.

There's a thing in America called Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS). It's a well known phenomenon which seems to drive normally sane people crazy. These people become irrational and unhinged. The media are particularly afflicted. Don lemon is an extreme example of this phenomenon.

However it's not only the media as you can see it in these forums as well. Many of the leftists around here start frothing at the mouth whenever a Trump supporter dares to defend Trump.

They will call you a racist, a fascist, a nazi all sorts of derogatory insults. They seem to be very fragile sort of people who are easily triggered.

Lesson learned...any topic containing the word ''Trump'' will get derailed right?

Re: Trump vs. CNN

Yeah, not so much derailed. Deranged is probably a more fitting description

Orange man bad is the only acceptable opinion around here. Orange man being Trump, by the way. If you deviate from that, BOOM. You get the Don lemon treatment. You're a nazi, you're a fascist. You know, that sort of thing.

Hehe, good one!
One guy in here even came up with proof that people on the left were smarter than those on the right. Guess not everybody was included in that test.

Anyway, everybody gets the network they deserve.
(Accept for me cause i can only receive CNN lol!)


But anyway, ive learned alot here on how media works in the USA.
But what i would love to see is that Trump does something undeniable great, and see how CNN sells that!?

So there have been people who have long understood that the media is a tool of the ruling class.
I feel like I remember that moniker from at least back around ExxonValdez maybe?? It's been around a long time either way.

Yes, republicans have a track record of using that term to attack everybody while they defend the psychos they unleash on the country. And then after the person's out of office they throw em under the bus and claim they hated him the whole time.

And as far as throwing around the term 'nazi' goes I'm pretty sure it was Limbaugh that brought that lovely little nugget to prominence screeching about femme-nazis every 5seconds back in the day
