Complete and utter malarkey. ONE mainstream network went after Obama, Foxnews, some of it unwarranted Political tripe, some of it valid.  Meanwhile ALL of the remaining mainstream networks suppor

Want to slash American carbon?  Build nuclear power plants.  

When MSNBC announced Trump's win in Iowa, there was an audible grunt from Rachel Madow. By the sound of it, she apparently sat on her sack wrong. Happens to the best of us.

Shack. This isn't an us vs. them debate because the situations aren't even remotely the same. I lived in Del Rio for five years and saw probably three snow flurries in that time. 6 inches of snow and a week of single digit deep freeze is absolutely unthinkable for most of the state. 
 

Meanwhile, California's power grid shits the bed most summers due to completely standard hot weather.  If there were routine rolling blackouts in Texas in the summer, the situations would be analogous, but that isn't a thing.

 

I'd love to see what would happen to LA if they got six inches of snow.. likely hundreds if not thousands of deaths, complete grid failure, and almost certainly a few decades worth of shitty climate change documentaries.

In Oklahoma we had cold like this back in 83 but not the snow, we had rolling blackouts for one day and businesses shutdown exterior lighting. This is our first time that I can remember us having snow on top of snow followed by a week long cold snap. Usually we have a big snow at night and by the afternoon most of it melted, that didn't happen. I believe in the future and changing weather patterns this will be a regular occurrence, I notice it when we do compass swings on the 135's at PDM, the magnetic north pole changes so much lately we are continuing moving the noses of the jets more in a northeast direction to accomplish it. I believe Mag North is now somewhere in Siberia plus the Fukishima earthquake changed the axis where the KTIK main runway changed its numbers from 17/35 to 18/36. The Earth is changing.

A Fucking MEN!

Liberal media needs a reason to NOT report on Cuomo so they focus on Ted going on vacation.  You want to talk about lies...thankfully DOJ and the FBI are investigating the joke that is the NY Governor and his staff.  Over at the joke that is CNN Brother Fredo Cuomo has been absolutely silent about a controversy that may have caused 1,000 unnecessary deaths.

The liberal mainstream media largely excused Cuomo and the conservative mainstream media largely excused Cruz. I'm not saying their sins are equally mortal but those are the immediate examples.  

We've got two sides of the mainstream media now with roughly equal viewer/reader/listenerships.  Conflating mainstream media with liberal is passe.  That might be a good thing although the two sides are getting further apart.   They want us to choose R or D and obediently stay in our little boxes.

The sins are not even in the universe.  Ted Cruz went on vacation during a snow and ice storm.  As a senator not much he could do more than symbolic gestures.  Optics bad, yes but he didn't kill anyone.  Cuomo is DIRECTLY responsible for many deaths, withheld information from the Justice Department and lied about.  Come on man.

When dividing the "sides" of the media at least be relative and honest.  On the conservative side of televised media you have one player FoxNews (although newsmax is growing an audience).  On the liberal side is the VAST majority of CNN/MCNBC/CBS/ABC/NBC.  It is David versus Goliath which is why Foxnews gets higher ratings than all of the left wingnut networks combined.

This actually isnt' true. At least FOX, I know for sure, was all over Cruz for several days and even ran a side by side headline heavily critical over Cruz and Cuomo both on their main website. 

The conflict of interest with the Cuomo family at CNN is certainly concerning to its reporting though.

Still not sure why it's news that Cruz went to Mexico? Who cares?  What was he going to do to make TX warmer and get power back?

This is no different than Trump/Obama golfing all the time.  I can do my job from the links so long as I have reception.  Its  just the optics.

Because the news of Cruz going to Mexico covers up the Cuomo COVID nursing home fiasco in NYC on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, etc...  

As long as they keep talking about how bad Cruz and the GOP are, most people who really don’t follow current events will forget about Cuomo.

The only reason Cuomo is in the news at all is because competing progressives (DeBlasio, mainly) smell blood and want his job.

Definitely conflict of interest at CNN (duh).  However, the NY Times, NPR, Wash Post, and networks for what that's worth have hammered Cuomo pretty hard.

There are also a large number of additional conservative outlets available: OAN, Newsmax, Blaze, WSJ editorial, Rebel News WorldNetDaily, and of course much of talk radio.  Listener/reader/viewership is another matter; but that's up to each outlet - if they suck at their job less people will partake.  However, the outlets exist for consumers to consume.

I've said it several times, I do not like Trump but I voted for him to prevent what you will see below.  How anyone who voted for Biden can watch this without throwing something at the screen is beyond me.  Giving three year olds drugs to change their sex...you are truly some sick fucks.

We have age requirements for drinking, voting, signing contracts, etc. In recognition of the lack of decision making skills that might prevent you from doing something stupid. Sex change or hormone treatments? No worries. A 4 year old or hormonally challenged adolescent going through puberty has the rational mental capacity to judge a life altering decision.

Just as you voted for Trump who espoused ideas and policies you disagree with, so too can Biden voters vote for Biden and not agree with all his positions. One does not become more righteous than another.

Really dude?  The left has made the argument that if you voted for Trump then you’re lockstep with what Trump believes, etc.  Hell, the left is still trying to make that argument!  Let me know if you need examples...

By the way, how are those “cages” (or detention holding facilities?) that Biden is forcing children into?

These same people argue that 18-year-old high school graduates don't know what they're signing up for when they take on student loans.

Trump said some fucked up shit...making fun of John McCain and servicemen who were not captured being horrible, but when it comes to three year olds being mutilated and partial birth abortion (and I am pro-choice), you let your hate of the orange man trump any sense of righteousness.  Sickening.

I'm a Never Trumper, but have never been an Orange Man Bad-er.  There's a difference I believe.

Also, this is a hot-button culture war topic that isn't representative of all of Biden's policies, just as children in cages wasn't a representation of all of Trump policy.

C'mon. This is the kind of divisive rhetoric that keeps us from discussing issues as a country.

My guess is that we fall in line with a lot more policy than you'd realize.
