It's conditioning.

They can't tell you what the lies are. They've just heard it over and over - "she lies, she can't be trusted, she has a trust problem with voters, she has bad numbers on trustworthiness..." Well???? What do you expect when every second sentence in every intro to every segment on every show, EVERY time the topic is Hillary v Trump? You KEEP HEARING this shit to the point where it's kinda driven in. And the incessant repetition just drives it home again and again and again until you're conditioned to take it for granted.

WHEN do they start reporting on things like this?


And when does something like the above article start being emphasized?

I'm still stunned that the major media has now decided, FINALLY (!), AT LONG LAST (!!!!!), to use the word "lie" to label something that actually is, provably and demonstrably, a lie. As in most of what Trump says on any given hour of any given day. His trying to push birtherism off on the Hillary campaign was just a little too much to leave alone, I guess. Stunk SO bad even the NYTimes and other major media apologists and accomplices and other cover-up artists finally couldn't take the stench anymore. They'd FINALLY met the straw that broke their camel's back.

But look how long it's taken. They've finally decided to step away from their protective routine of tiptoeing around any GOP/CONservative lies. Anybody remember the wussy flaccid headline "Prevaricating President?" They couldn't bring themselves to declare flat-out that george w dry-drunk was lying. I guess Trump just hit the trip-wire for these lazy lice. Finally stunk up the joint too bad even for them.

Welcome to DU, matelize!

Thank you for this! I love this post, too.

I LOVE that the original author noticed - what Hillary has to face EVERY day. The media already hard-wired to distrust her and paint her negatively (Hello Andrea Mitchell) and accentuate the negative EVERY DAMN TIME!!!

THIS was a really great find, although it's from earlier this month. It singles out the NYTimes but the same scolding has been earned by ALL of the mainstream media lemmings:

The Times uniquely, though only as a leading example for the rest of the national press, has a decades' long history of being lead around by rightwing opposition researchers into dead ends which amount to journalistic comedy - especially when it comes to the Clintons. But here, while all this is happening we have a real live specimen example of direct political and prosecutorial corruption, misuse of a 501c3 nonprofit and various efforts to conceal this corruption and the underlying corruption of Trump's 'Trump University' real estate seminar scam. It's all there - lightly reported here and there - but largely ignored.


Because it's long and ponderous and takes time and thought.

Unfortunately, that's counter to what we've all been relentlessly force-fed for years - "relief - fast, fast, fast!" for example. The good guy always gets the bad guy - in just 23 minutes because it's a half-hour show and you have to allow for commercials. But it's all well 'n' good by the end of the show.

Problem is - nobody wants to find the time to READ. To dig into these things. To stop and think and not just to react. Nobody's interested anymore. After all - we're now keeping it to 140 characters...

Color me discouraged.

Welcome to DU, FL_Jerry!

Thank you for helping the campaign the way you did! I give when I can, too.



"...a dumpster blew up on 23rd Street in New York, the perfect 2016 campaign analogy of course."

Welcome to DU, wncHillsupport!

Yeah, I remember "A Man for All Seasons." Terrific movie! And I could see Hillary called "A Woman for All Seasons." She's that remarkable a figure.

I don't drink beer, so I wouldn't ever have a beer with her. But a cuppa coffee? ABSOLUTELY! Or tea, or brunch, lunch, breakfast, dinner, snack, a bagel, quiche, salad, candy bar, pizza, burgers, sushi, donuts, cake, pie, ice cream, frozen yogurt...

Now, there's a hashtag! #FireAndreaMitchell

And as one tweet put it -

YES. #FireAndreaMitchell needs to start trending.

Now, there's a hashtag! #FireAndreaMitchell

I'm gonna spread it!


Approved. Take a number. I'm in line, too.

I now routinely switch to CNN to watch Ashleigh Canfield at 9am Pacific/Noon Eastern. It's a nice change. However, today, I did not switch back to MSNBC by 10am Pacific/1 Eastern. They were covering another Trump speech. CNN on the other hand was ignoring the Trump speech and covered the aftermath of the NY/NJ bombings and the suspect now in custody.

But I have a thread here, and have updated it several times today with my latest tweets.


Today's tweets:

@mitchellreports HEY Everybody - Don't like @mitchellreports? Check out CNN this hour: @CNNAshleigh Ashleigh Banfield on the Law. NO BIAS!

@mitchellreports @HillaryClinton @realDonaldTrump Why should she bother, Andrea? Taking your talking points from Trump again? @MSNBC @TheFix

@mitchellreports @HillaryClinton @realDonaldTrump Why should she? You certainly won't give her an fair unbiased hearing. I wouldn't, either!

@mitchellreports @HillaryClinton @realDonaldTrump Why should she when all you'll do is push Trump talking points? @maddow @jaketapper @ABC

@mitchellreports @HillaryClinton @realDonaldTrump Right. Keep carrying Trump's water for him. You on his payroll? @ScottPelley @Yamiche

@mitchellreports @HillaryClinton @realDonaldTrump I wouldn't advise her to talk to you because she won't get a fair hearing from your bias.

@mitchellreports @HillaryClinton @realDonaldTrump Why should she? So you can push Trump talking points on her? @GStephanopoulos @paulkrugman

@mitchellreports @HillaryClinton @realDonaldTrump Why should she? So you can push Trump talking points on her? @joshtpm @markos @Lawrence

@mitchellreports @HillaryClinton @realDonaldTrump Why should she? To face YOUR bias again? @TPM @ESQPolitics @CapehartJ @joanwalsh @nytimes

@mitchellreports @HillaryClinton @realDonaldTrump TIRED of your anti-Hillary bias! But I've discovered @CNNAshleigh, now enjoying her more.

@mitchellreports @HillaryClinton @realDonaldTrump Why should she? To face YOUR bias again? @RawStory @jonathanalter @NBCPolitics @JoyAnnReid

@mitchellreports @HillaryClinton @realDonaldTrump Why should she? To face YOUR bias again? @Fahrenthold @chucktodd @iamjohnoliver @ABC @CNN

So I'd put the question out there yet again.

How is THIS:

"I specially call on all Latinos to reject a man who encourages violence against you,"

(the underlined italicized part) not DEPLORABLE? How is HE not DEPLORABLE? How are those he's exhorting to do violence against Latinos - how are THEY (those he's speaking to and stirring up) not DEPLORABLE?
