America has a Manchurian President. Trump rubes don't care.

I don't select fake news site links.

It's a link to an article from a conservative site during obama's administration claiming he was a Manchurian Candidate.

The parties have just flipped narratives, and you're falling for it.

I am very familiar with Breitbart, and I remember when Andrew died. Articles contained in Breitbart, or in any other right-wing conspiratorial site are of no interest to me.

"I am very familiar with Breitbart."
"I don't select fake news site links."

Do you see any logical disconnect between those two statements?

And you're also avoiding my primary point, which is that the republicans attempted to brand Obama as a Manchurian candidate during his tenure, just as the democrats are doing to Trump now.

And I bet you were defending obama then just as you're condemning trump now.

There's no contradiction at all. How does my being knowledgeable about a media source mean that I consume articles from it? I'm well aware of the Fox Channel and their hosts yet I almost never watch it.

Comparing President Obama to Trump in any fashion is absurd.

If you systematically avoid it, then you can't be familiar with it.

At best, you're only familiar with what other liberals tell you about it.

And, once again, you're missing my primary point, which is that the DNC is just trying to do what the RNC tried to do. This is politics as usual.

"If you systematically avoid it, then you can't be familiar with it." C'mon, that's nonsense.

I'm sure you think I get my information from liberal sources. Conservatives believe all news sources that don't confirm their ideology are liberal.

You've said yourself that you reject all conservative news sources, Artie.

And yes, if systematically avoid something and eschew all exposure to it, then you can't say you're familiar with it.

I never eat shellfish. Ever. I couldn't possibly claim to have an informed opinion about it because I never touch the stuff. I couldn't possibly presume to tell other people what to think about any kind of shellfish, and if I did I would look like an idiot.

Conservative media sources by definition are biased, and not news.

I stand by my previous comments. Your shellfish analogy is cute, but not applicable.

05/16/17 11:41 am

Lol, and liberal media sources are....

Here are some. ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, WS Journal, PBS, NPR, BBC, Boston Globe, Yahoo News, NY Times, Washington Post, Newsweek, Time, Associated Press, Politico, Reuters, Wikinews, Bloomberg, USA Today

Are you admitting that those are all part of the liberal media, Artie?

05/16/17 11:50 am

I have to say that I appreciate your honesty!
Ordinarily, liberals will deny that those are liberal media outlets, and insist that they are all mainstream, unbiased sources.

I'll put a pin in this conversation for the next time I need to demonstrate for one of your fellow liberals who are toeing the party line.

05/16/17 11:50 am

Thank you very much. I appreciate the help you've give me today.

Really? The problem is that you and others believe that, which is harmful to this democracy. Delegitimization of reliable news sources is very dangerous.

05/16/17 12:06 pm

First you make the case that politically biased news sources are, by definition, biased, and therefore are not news.

Then, you post a big list of politically biased liberal news sources. (Thanks again for that admission, by the way- super helpful)

And now, you're trying to claim that you don't believe in the delegitimization of news sources?

Come on, Artie. You can't be so stoned that you think anyone will believe that.

I'm done. I have nothing more to say that you wouldn't find insulting.

05/16/17 12:10 pm

Lol you certainly did wrap yourself up in a nice little package for me today.

I think impeachment proceedings are going to happen a little sooner than I thought. I was saying by the end of June.

Totally agree. He'll be gone by the year's end. But then Pence? Ouch!

Personally, I'm counting three at the moment. If the Democrats succeed in getting rid of Trump by fair means or foul, I hope you like the result, but I am pretty sure that you won't! You can always take comfort that the assholes of your choice got back in just before industry bailed again.

Harry, sadly the Democrats will play a very limited role in the impeachment of your president, it will be his own party that can no longer tolerate him!
