Cable news pushing right wing talking points.

I usually don't watch the early cable news shows other than Nicolle Wallace. I noticed they were pushing right wing talking points, giving Republican talking points as much weight as Democratic. Cable news gave credence to the narrative that the impeachment hearing is unfair and a sham. I'm not talking about Fox, I'm talking about CNN and MSNBC.

They emphasized a new poll that was just released polling people in several swing states. The new poll showed a majority of people opposed impeachment and that poll was discussed numerous times on numerous shows. I have a thing for polls, I don't subscribe to them. I believe that polls are used for propaganda.

Dems had better keep on the ball controlling the narrative, public opinion will be needed to convict Trump.

MSNBC and CNN are not liberal networks from what I witnessed today.

Speaker Pelosi goes to Afghanistan

Speaker Pelosi made an unannounced trip to Afghanistan where she met with the leaders of Afghanistan. Secretary of Defense Esper was also in Afghanistan and Speaker Pelosi also met with him. Trump isn't going to pull the wool over Speaker Pelosi's eyes, what a brilliant move on her part. Maybe she is getting ready to take over, one can hope.

Trump's New Executive Order.

I have no idea what Trump's health insurance EO does. Does Trump know the difference between Medicare, Medicaid, and Medicare Advantage? His EO says it will strengthen Medicare Advantage, MA is simply private health insurance that picks up what Medicare doesn't pay. MA is private insurance that sends seniors notices in the mail that look like it is coming from Medicare and lures seniors into signing up for something they don't want.

What's the real explanation of what Trump's EO does? The explanations that I have seen are just mumbo jumbo.
