Donald Rump is right about one thing, but not in the way he thinks.

One of Donald Rump's many excuses for his pathetic and catastrophic debate performance last Monday has been the "unfairness" of the "news" media. In a very perverse way, he's right.

However, he's right in the wrong way.

Since he announced his candidacy last year, the news media has engaged in a frenzy of unquestioning and nauseating fawning that makes their coverage of Dubya look like microscopic scrutiny.

Donald Rump has gotten over a year of being allowed to get away with the most outrageous lies, blatant racism and sexism, warmongering, stupidity and opponent smearing with NO challenge from the learned "journalists" of the American news media. They've issued him a blanket free pass which he well redeem fully in the third debate when he is permitted to say any line of bullpuckey by the inexplicably selected Chris Wallace of Fox "News.".

While this has gone on, Hillary Clinton has endured over a quarter of a century of never ending investigations, witch hunts and downright smears by a Republican/teabagger party Hell bent on her destruction. She has been more investigated than her husband and more vilified than Ted Kennedy by the right. If it were to come out that in 1965, Hillary mailed a letter with $.01 postage due, than there will be unending stories about her " lack of integrity" and "un trustworthiness."

Ridiculous, Ridiculous, RIDICULOUS!!!

When it came time to answer questions by a moderator who did NOT allow him to get away with his usual shenanigans, on stage with an opponent whom not only had the audacity to be a WOMAN, but intelligent, accomplished and prepared, he had NO IDEA what to do and he folded faster than a cardboard outhouse in the middle of Hurricane Katrina.

Yes, Donald Rump is right. The media HAS been unfair this election cycle. Where he is, as usual, wrong, is in his likely cocaine addled pea brained belief, it is not Donald Rump to whom they've been unfair. The news media has been unfair to America and the world. In doing so they've risked installing into the White House a man so dangerously incompetent that he makes George Dubya Moron look like an elder statesman.

I didn't think that THAT was even REMOTELY possible. For that alone, the America news media has earned at least our scorn.

As my mother would have said, "screw'em!". WE have to be the media.

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!

PEACE!

1. I could not possibly agree with you more, my dear MarianJack!

This is exactly what has happened.

Fortunately, and hopefully not too late, the media has woken up and is now treating him the way they should have been doing from the freaking beginning.

And.....

Your 2 cents is not one bit overpriced, either!

3. Hillary has to be the media by pushing the "fact checking meme" for days and again and

 

Them also during the debate. Then she had to suffer through unequal treatment during the debate.
And knock him out with one hand tied and a big smile on her face.

4. Of course you're right, bettyellen!

I read somewhere that Hillary's red pantsuit was emblematic of the blood of all the people who've ever underestimated her!

Donald Rump has NO idea or notion of how to deal with women other than his nude model incumbent wife, the Playboy models from HIS porn movie, or highly paid butt kissers like his token negro Omarosa...Yuck!

PEACE!

6. IMHO, ...

... they've been even worse than in the post 9/11 era of round the clock glorification of George Dubya Turdhead!

7. We are now the media as far as I am concerned.

Even the very best on msnbc are trapped into allowing right wing nutjobs air time to sprout their ridiculous crap.

Enough of that for me.

How about an app that uses social media for us to keep real news alive.

Actual facts and reporting.

We do not need cable tv garbage.

Remember when cable was AD FREE?

Stuff them.

8. I agree, and...

...my family and I have been cable free since May, 2009. We watch Netflix through our Blueray player. Even my 16 year old son doesn't miss cable. Whenever we're somewhere that has cable, I'm reminded of the old Bruce Springsteen song, 57 channels and there's nothing on!

PEACE!

11. A word that says it al

Use T RUMP in place of anything else since it does describe the part of a horse that goes over the fence last. And when people see the name T RUMP they'll know what is meant by using a descriptive name for him. He is the biggest one we've ever seen.
