Who agrees with this?

"The main stream media is treating the President like a felon, and the felon like he's the President."

I do. I might just change main stream media to corporate media, but otherwise, absolutely!

Just read on Alex Cole's twitter.

Well, Ari is starting off okay

He's covering Project 2025 and cheato's plans to take over the federal government. No Biden bashing so far.

Biden will sit for live interview with Lester Holt on Monday

Saw his name trending on twitter, and that is the reason. Some are reminding him/us that back in 2021 Lester said the press has no obligation to cover both sides when one side is lying. Think Lester is still down with that? Guess we'll find out.

Taking stock

We can ruminate and discuss endlessly (and that's fine, really) but the bottom line is: Billionaire elites want tax cuts and they control the news. They literally own the media. So they are doing everything in their power to hand the election to cheato.

Because they own the media, it is now almost 100% propaganda. A tiny minority of Dems are swept up in this out of fear and because the media is propaganda their voices are amplified. If a liberal celebrity expresses concern, they are guaranteed coverage The many liberal celebrities who are still supporting Biden are ignored.

How do we fight billionaires and the corporate owned media? That is really the question. I am all for boycotting them and will only watch Lawrence O'Donnell for now. But that is not enough. Every day that this goes on, more low information and undecided voters are influenced by their BS.

It's a serious problem, but it is a phony, manufactured problem devised to give even more money to the least deserving.

OMG NYT AGAIN calls for Biden to drop out?

Just heard on Joy Reid. They called again for him to withdraw and asked the Dem party to intervene.

Still waiting on their call for cheato to withdraw after his FELONY convictions and his loss in the sexual abuse case.

Jens Stoltenberg, leader of NATO, looked

thrilled when Biden gave him the Medal of Freedom. Really. You can't fake that kind of emotion. He had a full smile when Biden put it around his neck.

Funny. What I saw with my own eyes seems to contradict the media's narrative frm this morning. According to them, the NATO members are losing confidence in Biden and don't think he's up to the job.

Only Lawrence O'Donnell seems to have the guts to

criticize his peers' coverage of this epically important Presidential race. He goes after them with real anger and shock. He scorched the WH press corps for their insanely aggressive coverage of Biden's "health problems" yesterday and told the truth about what was really going on.

He reminded his fellow journalists that the only reason they even know that a neurologist visited the WH eight times is because THIS WH releases visitors' logs. Guess who did NOT do that? Of course they use this transparency against Biden to baselessly smear him. When the WH proves there is nothing to this story, they continue with their baseless "but people have questions" coverage.

If you want fearless coverage of what is at stake and how the beltway press is covering it, watch his show. I am really looking forward to it tonight. Of course, I'm lucky to be on the west coast so I can watch at seven o'clock. I have a feeling it's going to be good.

Ted Lieu just said that trump's name was all over the epstein files

and he told the press to their faces that they might want to cover that. I'm not holding my breath.

So when MSNBC takes a break from the Biden bashing

to cover cheato for a few minutes, you would think that a "progressive" channel would be a little critical at least, right? Imean, they have so much to work with. SO MUCH.

But, no they present a puff piece with a fangirl standing outside at the trump rally, and go on and on about his rally. FIRST APPEARANCE in 10 days, and it is so cool that cheato can do it! Then, the exciting VP race! Who will win cheato's approval?
NOT ONE WORD ABOUT project 2025.

I fail to see how FAUX could be worse.

Andrea Mitchell had the nerve

to compare Biden to cheato. She said he's bragging about his crowds last week-end in PA but those are supporters. Bragging about crowds is getting into trump territory.

She did not give one quote or example of Biden bragging about crowds (because he didn't) and she looked absolutely disgusted.

I have tried to defend Andrea a few times her because some of her critics seemed to me to be a little "agist". But now I'm starting to feel what some of you have expressed about her before. I never watched her back in 2016 when she bashed Hillary for her "e-mails" but it was probably like this.
