In a surprising move, the Colorado GOP decided to cancel a scheduled caucus during which many delegates were expected to support Trump, instead awarding all of the state's delegates to Ted Cruz, and silencing the voters of the state. Smart move?

I'm torn on this. I don't support Trump, but it seems underhanded.

In a surprise move? They changed it in August. This was not news to any of the campaigns. This is just silly. You can disagree with the concept of a Republican state convention to determine who the delegates with be, but it's neither a surprise nor anything that the candidate should act as though they weren't aware of for 6 months.

Furthermore, all registered Republicans in the state of Colorado were welcome to participate in the convention. Trump's team actively campaigned there. They printed out a slate of delegates they wanted folks to vote for, but flubbed the numbering system. Another indication of an inept campaign. But rather than conceding that as the source of his foibles, Trump pretends there was no convention, and that some folks somewhere just handed Cruz delegates. Nonsense.

For once, I would like to see a republican on here use an unbiased, credible source to site their information from. So many news organizations are reporting this and you use World Net Daily?

My source is credible. What's the problem?

No problem here, I just wish I could read this type of information from credible sources so I don't have to fact check every statement in the article.

So you like what many would consider a liberal leaning news media.

It's a pick. CNN surely is liberal.

Oh bullshit. That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Apparently any news organization that doesn't call Obama a Muslim dictator is a liberal news source?

That article is based on the audience that watches their programming and CNN is as close to the center that you can get. Yet you still call them liberal? The site that has been provided for this poll has specifically identified themselves as a conservative news reporter.

Neither CNN nor the Denver Post identify themselves with a political party. That's what I refer to as unbiased.

I'd like to see EITHER party use unbiased sources. The Dems are as bad as the Repubs!

CNN is very biased! They lie regularly about Bernie and tilt most of their coverage toward Hillary. There are no unbiased news sources.

DP endorsed Obama in 2012. I guess that's endorsing a democrat. CNN is rooting for Hillary.

Geez, the DP endorsed Obama for President on 2008. They picked Romney over McCain!

That because Kerry was such a loser.

And they probably thought McCain and Romney were losers too? Bottom line is they don't let political parties influence who they endorse. If they've endorsed both a republican and democratic candidate in the past 3 election cycles, how could you say they are a biased liberal newspaper? Wouldn't they still vote for Kerry if that was the case?

You see, the difference between WND and the Denver Post is that WND is a website that politically aligns as a conservative news site. I'm just asking that don't site a source that will report with a political bias. Can you find any articles from the Denver Post that you would call bias?

They don't have to officially align with a party to be biased. CNN, The Washington Post and the New York Times are both VERY pro-$hilary in their reporting. I'm sure they would deny having a liberal mind set. I haven't read enough to know if Denver does or not, but you are DEAD wrong about CNN. They may not announce that they identify with HRC, but FOX isn't officially affiliated with the Repubs, but no one believes they aren't biased toward them.

They lie about how he's doing in the election. They lie about his record. They lie about the numbers of people at his rallies. They lie about his support of civil rights and women's issues, even though he is the biggest feminist in the race! Shall I continue?

Somebody show me any article or report from CNN explaining their bias to the democrat party. Somebody show me an example of NBC stretching the truth to support the democrat party.

Lying about how he's doing in the election? He has over a 1,000 pledged delegates and he's won 18 states so far? Are you saying they're claiming he's doing badly? What lies are they saying about civil rights and women's rights? He's been a pro-choice and civil rights supporter for his entire life. Are you also claiming that he didn't have a 10,000 person rally in Boston?

Paula....they lie when they publish articles calling her the presumptive nominee. They misrepresent the numbers of delegate has. The "Bernie blackout" by the media is real. They don't cover Bernie like they do the other candidates. CNN has become the Trump/Clinton channel.

I've been calling her the presumptive nominee since last July. They air Trump rallies all day long so I don't understand how anybody can call them a strictly liberal biased source?

That study isn't about the bias of the news provided. It's a survey of the audience they attract and where on the political spectrum they align with the most.
