I fucking hate the news media in this country !!! I wanted to hear what was being said

by the Congress members after the vote, but MSNBC and CNN cut away.

I don't give a damn what the pundits think. !!!

I wanted to hear the members.

This is infuriating.

1. Stupid asses. They let Trump ramble and censor the opposition.

2. Most of the time you can look up whatever the event is, followed

by live. Such as: impeachment vote live and then filter it to the last hour, and YouTube usually has it. They did this morning.

3. CSPAN may have an archive of any remarks after the vote was taken

although when they were done with that vote, they actually went on to discussing a different resolution under the guise of the "Committee of the Whole House" (vs just an individual-designated committee), so there might not have been to many comments yet outside of the leadership.

The beauty now is that there are streaming services that have recorded these things (vs being stuck only with TV) so stuff should be showing up soon if not already available.

4. Just play Nancy Pelosi's statement before the vote:




They can't erase what she said. We can spread this video.

5. Hey could be worse

I saw Jason Chaffetz on Fox coking and joking with the other hosts about how "the dems have no evidence...they have nothing". That's the message the right is being feed right now.

6. There is no "news" media in this country.

It is full of bloviators who think their opinions matter...when they donít.

Tons of bloviators turning politics into a bloodsport.

For real news I go outside of the US.

21. Al Jazeera English is way better.

Itís not monopolized by Brexit bullshit. Newshour at 7PM Eastern time is an EXTREMELY informative news program. You get news from around the globe, including Africa and South America. It also runs at 10PM Eastern.

Once you watch it and also their investigative journalism programs, you will see why the Saudis want it shutdown.

8. can't speak for the o.p., but when *i* challenge the media to do better, it's not for my sake.

i'm not pissed by the media's horrendous lack of journalistic standards and clear right-wing bias because *i* want to watch more informative, neutral, fact-based nightly news.

i'm here on du, and i check out other sources, *i* can get informed better than that.

i'm pissed at the media because that's where more americans get their political opinions shaped than anywhere else.

it's important for the sake of the country that we hold the media to proper standards.


switching the channel is not nearly good enough.

14. It's not exactly what he says.

Moreover, just because donnie objects to the media doesn't force us to support it no matter what. We have very different criticisms and we can't fall into his trap of supporting whatever he criticizes.

He objects to the media because he thinks it's not biased enough in his favor. That's no reason to object to how biased in his favor it already is.

12. I could do without the horrible commercials that come with

even the good news. If I hear one more commercial aimed at the over 65 crowd I might go berserk. Either we all are living in the lap of luxury and only have to take lovely walks on the beach or it is time to sign up for health insurance and medicare. I spend my time changing diapers and fixing meals and seldom have time for something enjoyable. They act like over 65 and you have no responsibilities.

Not about pundits.

I don't remember the context, but I heard him say that many times.
